2 Star Review   By cabo569874 on Home Depot - Jun 4, 2013   

When set to the low sensitivity the motion sensor would only register motion if I waved my hand directly in front of the window on the sensor unit. When set to high sensitivity the unit would constantly beep even when there was no motion at all. Tried all of the troubleshooting tips and could not get the item to work. Even hired the cast of Riverdance to perform in my driveway and it still wouldn't register any motion. Maybe I got a lemon unit. Don't know, don't care. Got tired of messing with and took it back.

Unreliable
2 Star Review   By KatM on Home Depot - Apr 30, 2013   

I bought this as a driveway alarm since I have a very long driveway and can't see immediately when someone pulls up in front of the house. This is the third brand of motion sensor I have tried already. The first two were inconsistent with alerting when a car drove in. I set up this sensor exactly to the specifications they say to in the instructions. (i.e. 4 ft. high to detect cars). It is about 400 feet away from my house in a clear area that is a straight shot to my house where the base receiver is just inside the door. I am still getting inconsistent results just as I did with cheaper models. I have even tried different settings, angles, etc. to no avail. Frustrating since I work from home and need to know when clients arrive. I thought this one would be great since it has a 1/2 mile range but I have found it equally disappointing as all the other models out there.

Got what I wanted and what I paid for
4 Star Review   By Patches2221 on Home Depot - Apr 3, 2013   

We've had trespassers taking various items right out of our garage and vehicles probably right under our noises without realizing it. With the wireless motion alert we were able to set it up with an additional sensor to cover a very large parimeter where someone might enter the property and/or exit. Love the option to place the motion sensor several hundred feet from the alert station. Love the option for sensitivity so it is not repeatedly tripped by small animals passing through. It's a simple low priced unit that is doing exactly what we wanted for a very reasonable price. If I had to cite a negative detail it would be that the unit does not have an option to turn the motion sensor light on or off. It flashes each time the beam is broken. It would be nice if the intruders were not forewarned that we may be sneaking up on them or that the police are coming.

This product is insensitive to movement . . .
1 Star Review   By Sharky on Home Depot - Apr 2, 2013   

I wanted a motion sensor that detected movement, but this Chamberlain product is about as sensitive as a can of beans! When I move in front of it, I have to move at least 15 feet before the green light responds. If I move slowly, it doesn't respond at all. If I move from my right to my left in front of the sensor, it doesn't respond at all. This is not a sensitive motion sensor by any definition!

5 Star Review   By westsider on Home Depot - Mar 11, 2013   

This product works, installed about 30 days ago, and installed as directed by instructions, about four foot high to not pick up animal traffic, it senses anything, people, cars and the neighbors tractor going by a sensor within 100 to 150 feet away. My sons neighbor stopped a theft of his truck in his driveway with this product..

5 Star Review   By LadyLuck on Home Depot - Feb 15, 2013   

We have a long driveway with an electronically locked gate on a private little used lane. We can not see the driveway from our home. In the past we have had small CCTV cameras to alert us, but have found that they have not lasted long enough to warrant the pice we have paid for them. We installed this system about 3-4 weeks ago and so far it is working like gangbusters. No false alarms, indicating any vehicles that we are expecting. Although we do not get a picture and sound as we did wit the CCTV systems, we just respond to the signal when it goes off. If it continues to work as well as it is right now I would recommend it to anyone needig such a system.

3 Star Review   By joes on Home Depot - Jan 15, 2013   

it works good but unless you are a pretty light sleeper the beep it makes when triggered is not likely to wake you at night. would of been better if it had a setting to switch the noise it makes to am alarm like the one that wakes you up at in the morning.

Sensor works okay but would work better with one more sensor. Have had a few cars make it through without setting off the sensor when the temperatures were really cold and their cars were cold as well.

MOTION SENSOR WITH WIRELESS MOTION ALERT
1 Star Review   By Woody on Home Depot - Dec 31, 2012   

we are having major issues with our motion detectors. If cars / or vehicles drive faster then a snails pace, they don't pick them up. However, the neighbor's cattle dog, and anyone walking by set it off more then a couple of times. We are going to try and putz with them and see if we can fine tune them. Waste of money is our opinion at this time. :o(

5 Star Review   By gentledoughnut on Home Depot - Nov 20, 2012   

For my purposes, nothing could work any better. Excellent detection and activation. I only wish that the remote sensors could be made available with perhaps an optional adaptor, so they could be plugged in where electricity might be available, to save on battery consumption. Excellent as is.

Quality for Great Price
5 Star Review   By StorageManager on Home Depot - Sep 26, 2012   

We needed to add additional security for our Storage Facility and having such a large facility we were glad we found the Chamberlin motion detector. The receiver is portable and we can carry from Office to Apt. Best of all it is a silent form so the criminal do not even know they set them off.

Works great and the sound is nice and loud. I have a long driveway and mounted the sensor facing up the driveway toward the house that way you cannot see it from the road. The unit has been working very well and I can hear the unit from any room even when I'm sitting on the back deck. I just ordered another one for a friend!

This thing only works when it wants to You can go passed it 10 times with a vehicle 4 foot from it and then you might get lucky and it go off on the 11th time. Not worth the money or time if you are buying it like us to let you know if you have someone in your yard late at night. You will get robbed blind before this thing will go off.

5 Star Review   By Brandon on Home Depot - Feb 9, 2012   

I'm using it as an early warning device for the exterior of my home. I have one sensor on the front porch and the others positioned around the backyard. I have tested it a few times and crept around the house. Works every time. I leave the base unit by my bed and it is loud enough to wake me up before someone attempts to break in. Much better to be warned prior to someone opening a window in your house like most home alarm systems.

This item works great , as long as you have someone close by with excellant hearing. We are older and had to stand next to the base unit to hear the alarm . Doesn't work for us and we returned it . too bad I gave it 4 stars because it does work well ... just not loud enough to hear , for us .

5 Star Review   By Lightning on Home Depot - Jan 3, 2012   

I bought this as a gift and my friend had it installed and running the next day. He uses it in the garage and the base is in the house. It is small enough that it is not noticable when someone arrives and he feels safer. Not sure it will be loud enougth with the TV on but it might scare the bad guys away. Good guys can stay.

This sensor works great except for the alert sound
5 Star Review   By Monei on Home Depot - Nov 26, 2011   

I am a big fan of the Reporter and this is a close replica except for the alert sound. The first time it went off in the middle of the night when a deer was coming up my driveway I thought it was the smoke alarm. This is the only complaint I have is the tone and I cannot hear it if I am in the back of my house in my kitchen running water. If there was a way to make it more distinguishable from other household sounds it would help but all in all I plan to use it and hope that Chamberlain does something about the alert tone.

Works quite well. Receiver is getting signal even through multiple walls.
5 Star Review   By Charlie on Home Depot - Oct 29, 2011   

It was always difficult to hear when anyone pulled into our driveway, and that was the reason we purchased this item. It has been working quite well overall. There have been false signals due to high winds, but we just mute it as necessary. The audible alert is loud enough for us to hear in most first floor rooms of the house. The signal is picked up through both the exterior wall and one interior wall with no problem. We really like the product so far. It's been installed for about one month.

once adjusted correctly it works great
4 Star Review   By HillbillyCT on Home Depot - Oct 1, 2011   

I installed this and it worked about 20% of the time for 4 plus months, very disapointing at first. I had it pointed across my driveway, which is 12 ft wide. When I turned it to point toward the end of the driveway so it could see cars turning into my driveway and then driving toward the monitor it now works great. Never misses anything. Cars, trucks, mice, cats, other animals.....Almost goes off to much now! It's mounted about 2ft off the ground and 240ft from the monitor. It alarms for the mail carrier now and even caught some kids smashing my mailbox at midnight! I installed the battery operated dorsey motion light ($20) in the same area and it lights for 30 seconds when the driveway monitor goes off. Now that I figured out how to position the monitor to make it work, I like it. It shouldn't be so difficult to get the monitor adjusted to the proper position to make it work though. It's been working great for the last 8 months without any battery change (lithium). Works well in New England weather.

Once adjusted, unit does very well.

Product works very good. However, I do not believe that it works in my location as well as a previous model that this newer model is replacing.

Works
4 Star Review   By lnsciscotexas on Home Depot - Jan 23, 2011   

Installed this item just before Christmas. Never failed to sound incomming vechiles or people. No false alames, Went off a few times due to deer and turkey. Is set so it does not go off to racoons, skunks and other low to the ground animals. Sensors are approx 200 feet from receiver in wooded area. Beeps are heard thoughout the small home. Reciever is in the bedroom and does wake up light sleeper.

motion sensor alarm
3 Star Review   By MickeyG on Home Depot - Jan 22, 2011   

This is my third try with the Chamberlain motion sensor alarm. Although the first two worked fine initially they never lasted more than a couple of years. This new model, with two sensors seems fine. The price was better than in the past. We have really become accustomed to the warning of approaching visitors that can't be seen from the house without them.

Marginal At Best
1 Star Review   By AllEars54 on Home Depot - Dec 17, 2010   

I owned the original RWA200, also sold as the Reporter. The reporter had superior sound quality and volume. It also had a Mute button that would put the volume to sleep for one hour and would come back on automatically. This new version cannot be heard if you are down the hall, have a dog, cat, child, television, phone, or are able to sleep. If you are elder (which I am not) and have the common difficulty of older age of not being able to hear thin high pitched sqeeeky sounds - forget it. If you are a sound sleeper, get a dog. Mute/Sleep Button: Does Not Exist. They will tell you it has one but it is political doublespeak. 1) there is an on/off button. But you must remember to come back and turn it on. 2) It has a volume button which, if you turn it all the way down, is their version of a "mute" button. But you still must remember to come back and turn it up. If you forget to come back and turn it on, or turn it up, and someone steals the garden tractor from your garage or a coyote jumps your backyard fence and eats your favorite pet - you lose.

OK So Far
3 Star Review   By Bobby on Home Depot - Nov 2, 2010   

Setup is easy, takes only a few moments. Range isn't a problem (farthest sensor is about 50 yards away.) Sensor picks up most motion within a 15-20 foot radius, the advertised 30 foot range is obviously optimistic. I purchased two additional sensors, however 1 out of the 3 received failed out of the box. I would also recommend lithium batteries for the sensors if you expect temperatures to drop below 45 degrees F.

Chamberlain w/ Additional Motion Wireless Sensor

Puchased about a month ago now. Perfect for our front walk and rear deck. It ALWAYS works if a person walks by the sensor. Highly recommended!

The Chamberlain Wireless Sensor
5 Star Review   By shelby1998 on Home Depot - Sep 20, 2010   

We purchased this unit about a month ago. We have found it to be very effective for our front driveway and our back deck area. It ALWAYS works when a car or person walks by the sensor. It also works if deer are in the area!! We have liked it so much that we are ordering a new set to place by our garages. If these are NOT working as directed, then you might want to check your settings for volume and tone. We are very happy with this purchase!! This is a really good deal and we recommend it highly!!

Needs Improvement
2 Star Review   By TedH on Home Depot - Aug 21, 2010   

The chime only sounds when the beam is broken. Some sci-fi type noise. No light. It would be nice to be able to plug an external lamp in to it. The chime needs to last longer.
