The FCC limits the transmission power the unit can use, and I had a number of potentially negative placement factors that caused me to doubt whether the unit would work for me, namely
1. It's about 250 feet from the transmitter in the mailbox to the receiver in the house.
2. The land rises between the box and the house so that the line of sight between them (if there *were* a line of sight - see #3) skims the ground.
3. The intervening land is heavily wooded with both trees and low bushes.
4. The mailbox is steel rather than plastic.
5. The box is on the far side of the road so that the mail truck interferes with the signal
6. There's no house or other structure behind the box to reflect the signal back towards our house. In fact the land behind the box drops away and any signal transmitted in that direction is gone forever.
I emailed the manufacturer, Hanna Products, with my concerns and got a friendly reply from the president within the hour. He concurred that all those factors were real concerns and there was a good chance that the unit might not work in my situation.
I purchased it anyway, and after I inserted the battery and mounted the transmitter in the box the unit worked perfectly, first with me standing in front of the box, then operating it from my vehicle, and finally with actual postal deliveries from the post-office truck. This product does exactly what it's supposed to do and I couldn't be happier with it. My plethora of negative factors may require me to change the battery earlier than others with more-ideal situations but that's a small price to pay to get instant notification of a delivery to my distant and invisible mailbox.Read more ›
Very well made. Extremely easy to install and setup. Just peal and stick the sensor to the inside of the mailbox door, then plug in the receiver in the house. You're done!
This is an exact replacement for one that I had on my mailbox for many, many years (destroyed by my brother-in-law who backed over the mailbox!).
The sensor's battery lasts for years and the unit always works flawlessly.
When the mailperson opens the mailbox, the audio alarm is triggered and a red light comes on. The light stays on until you hit the reset button. Simple and effective.
I love it.
I finally had to remove the cover and PC board in the receiver, and with a soldering iron push out the two large pins of the round alarm unit slightly. I worked the pin closest to the edge completely free, clearing the board by about 1/8 inch. After experimenting with resistor values, I finally soldered a 7500 ohm resistor between the mid-air pin and the hole it had been inserted in. The resistor lead runs over the edge to the other side from the alarm for insertion. This produces a perfectly audible muted volume.
Even if a pin on the audio alarm had been broken in the process, the bright LED that latches on until reset would probably be enough of a notice. However, if you are reasonably careful and work slow, this should not be a problem.
It would really help if they would add a potentiometer that could be adjusted through a hole in the box. This would add very little cost, but would make the unit much more acceptable to people without the skill to make this modification (i.e., the vast majority of consumers).
That said, this is a useful product that saves a lot of time. Volume preference is very much a matter of personal preference and environment, so the full volume may be acceptable as is to some people.
1/7/2015 addendum: A design change was eventually made to incorporate a potentiometer to more conveniently reduce the volume. Maybe these comments do have a beneficial effect.
