- Half of them work great Review by Paul
Half of them work great
I'm very disappointed with the customer service.
I installed 14 of these open/close sensors and they work most of the time.
After 3 weeks, I think only 1 works 100% of the time and the others very between 1% and 50%.
I live in an apartment complex with a mail room and we have had a lot of mail stolen. The mail thieves use counterfeit postal master keys to access the mail boxes so I placed the open/close sensors on the back wall of each of the 14 mail banks and placed the receiver in the building office about 25 feet away from the farthest sensor.
The funny thing is the farthest sensor is the 2nd most consistent working sensor. The sensors in the middle range are the ones failing most. The closest 2 sensors are failing about 20% of the time.
Some of the sensors will report that they are open when they are closed and closed when they are open. Because these sensors are locked in the mailboxes I can only reset them or adjust them when the postal worker is delivering the mail and I have to be home when that happens.
The idea behind the system that I have set up is to notify all residents that mail is being delivered so that they don't have to keep checking though out the day and get their mail before the mail thieves show up and steal the mail.
It has worked pretty well for my self as I have all 14 sensors set to notify me and I usually get about 7 out of 14 notification each day but I don't want to send out 14 notifications to each resident, only one notification and I have the notification system set up to only notify the respective mailbox owners. This means each day only 50% of the residents are notified correctly that mail has been delivered.
I have called and emailed customer service multiple times on this issue but I have still not gotten a resolution to the problem.
I want all 14 to work 100% of the time, not 50% some of the time.
