Good looking, bad motion detection
on September 16, 2009
I bought 4 of these, they install easily, and look realistic enough. The exception is that the motion sensor has a range of 1-2 feet. Not one of the four I bought had a range of more than that. Which means, it's almost impossible to mount so that people walking by will trip the sensor and cause the led to blink. I mounted one over a door, and I'm 5'10" tall. Even when I stand right in front of it and wave my hands, the sensor won't catch it.
It's hard to complain for the price, and coupled with fully functioning video cameras and security system, it serves its purpose. But I think it may be better to take the batteries out and leave it completely passive.
