Product worked as described. Linked to the transmitter with ease

It works great! So easy to install and works perfectly a long distance from the house. I would recommend highly.
JOSH -- caledonia, IL   4/12/2014
We live in an old farm house, which is very segmented; no open floor plan here, so I ordered a second receiver for upstairs. I was very pleased with the volume of the chime. I can hear the downstairs chime from the kitchen while I'm in the living room, watching TV, with the dinning room and kitchen doors closed. The upstairs chime is only turned on at night, and the volume will be plenty to wake us up and alert us of any visitors at night.

LARRY R. -- hillsborough, NC   10/14/2013
Added a second receiver and put on my screened porch so that I could hear it while outside. Works great and received it from Amazon in 4 or 5 days.
JACK L -- austin, MN   6/21/2013
Works very well !! I really like the ability to change alarm tones and volume. My transmitter is very sensitive-- too sensitive.
JOSEPH PAUL -- ithaca, NY   6/18/2012
Good product, we like to alert tone - loud enough to hear clearly over significant background noise, but not an ear-piercing tone like an alarm.
