Installation took less than 30 minutes. Mounted the two sections (sensor and indicator light) to the wall in front of car. Connected these with the snap-in cord provided. This is necessary because the sensor is placed at bumper height, while the indicator light mounts a few feet above. Next, I plugged the indicator light into a nearby AC outlet, set the car in position, and switched the unit on. Blinking lights confirmed that the unit was recording the location of the car. However, due to the slight "reflex time" it takes to actually stop after seeing red, I decided to re-set the unit with the car back a bit farther. Re-setting is easily accomplished by simply switching the unit off and than on again. Device has been in operation for several weeks now and has worked flawlessly. Its bright colored lights are easy to see under various conditions. Helpful hint: Mounting screws are included but I did not notice a "template". You can make one easily by placing a piece of paper against the back of each unit and punching holes to match those on the back. Use this to assist in drilling holes for the screws.

After 6 years of telling my wife don't pull so far into the garage, I found the answer with this product. Within a half hour of the Park Zone PZ-1900 Platinum Dual Power Parking Aid arriving at my house, I had it installed and my tools put away. But the most important thing is I have not had to climb over the front of my wife's pickup truck to get into the house as there is now always room in front of it to walk!!!! I have drove her truck on a few occasions and when I pull in the garage the green light comes on, then the yellow, and finally the red to stop and it has never been easier to know where to stop. I would recommend this product to anyone I know or don't know it is fantastic!

It probably saved our marriage... lol. I can now walk around her car in the front and back. Installing was a breeze and I hope this thing does not malfunction because if it does my wife will drive through the house and then say "it never turned red and told me to stop". I hope she's not reading this.

As others have reported, this unit requires clearance left and right of 3 feet and at least 16 inches from wall. Distance from wall is reasonable but if you have any other items stored on wall (like my snow blower which allows for 12 inches on either side of sensor clearance) the unit my not function properly.

I purchased a different brand, and it worked just fine. So bottom line is that to use this unit, one must really have a clear space left and right of sensor of about three feet, and outward from wall of about 16 inches. None of this is noted in the on line description.

I have bought two of these sensors and neither one
has lasted longer than a year. I would not recommend
this product unless you expect to buy one every year.

I spend a total of 2 hrs doing research on the web till I zeroed in on this item (I have a Ph.D and love research!). I was tired of my wife hitting the thermocol pad I had stuck to the wall in the garage to prevent further damage to the sill on which my airconditioning unit is kept. I keep my recycle bins on the other side of the car and always had to walk to the back of my car and and then the side to access the bins. This parking sensor allows me to park the car at the right spot, leaving enough space in the front of the car to access the bin. I also checked out the battery option and it works fine as well (in case you don't have a power point). Please note that if you do not have atleast a foot of space between the bumper and the garage wall, this product is not for you (as I saw in some of the negative feedbacks).

Update 08/14/15: I have confirmed that adding batteries to the PZ-1900 does nothing. I had hoped that the batteries would act to at least retain the distance setting, but they do not. In its current configuration, using batteries with the PZ-1900 has no value.

My original post :
I decided on (and recommend) the Model PZ-1900 which comes with a power adapter, because I didn’t want to fool with replacing batteries every year as some reviews have recommended. Our garages have a power outlet conveniently located mid-height, right of the door in the garage. Since I park on the right side, that position was ideal.
.
Most of the reviews are favorable for either the PZ-1900 or the PZ-1600. Two operational aspects which are important are: The minimum distance from the sensor to your car bumper must be at least 1’ 4” (16 inches); and there must be no obstructions to the left/right of the sensor for about 3 feet.
.
The sensor and light units are both very compact (about index card size) and weigh only a few ounces each. So instead of mounting with either the two-sided tape or screws which are supplied, I used two small 3M “Command” mounting strips each on the sensor unit and the light unit. The 3M’s avoid damaging the wall and are easy to remove or relocate. It took me only 12 minutes to align, install, and set the system. I’m really pleased with how it works!
.
As you either drive forward into or back into the garage, the unit first senses the car at about 15 feet out and the green light shines, Then, as you slowly go further in, the yellow light shines. Lastly, when you arrive at the distance you have set, the red light shines and you stop. Easy-peezy !
.
Of course with such an inexpensive unit, absolute precision shouldn’t be expected.
