Could not get system to work as advertised.
on January 5, 2012
After installing (new) batteries I entered my disarm code, programmed my telephone numbers and recorded message without any issues. I set the system to use the audible siren. I armed the system and went to a different room. I waited about 2 minutes and then entered the room. After about 1 1/2 minutes of walking around the room at times witin a couple of feet of the sensor, I finally heard a "beep" and shortly after that my cell phone rang and the audible siren activated.
I disarmed the system and set it for silent alarm. I then armed the system and left the room. Within 2 minutes the auto dialer was calling my cell phone, without having entered the room. I was able to repeat this defect condition a second time. I disarmed the system, reset it to use the audible siren, and then armed it. This time it took more than 5 minutes for the system to activate. I then replaced the batteries with a second set of new batteries and retested. This time it I could not get the system to activate for several minutes even after waving my hand back and forth within inches of the sensor. I left the system armed and went to another room. About 10 minutes later my phone rang with the recorded message. The unit is now back in the box and headed back to Amazon for refund.
