I installed my unit two weeks ago on a 400 foot drive. Direct line of sight to the receiver. It goes into alarm every 30 minutes indicating low battery. Changed batteries twice. It's going back!

I installed this unit on a post about 10 feet from my driveway to alert me when a vehicle enters. Receiver is only 250 feet from sensor. Performance is erratic. Sometimes it fails to detect vehicles. Other times it will beep 5 or 6 times when only one vehicle enters the drive. I tried adjusting settings but could not get it to perform well. Battery life is 6 months at best. Not a reliable unit.

I purchased this unit to put in my garage, and I am very pleased with the operation of it. It was easy to setup and install. Within 5 min. it was up and operational. Good deal!

This was a replacement for a similar brand that failed after 3 years and is no longer available. Setting up and installing my CWA2000 was very easy and so far I am very satisfied. Seems to be a great value for the price.

I don't know what the other reviewers are doing wrong. I do know that the cwa2000 that I installed has worked perfectly from install on. It doesn't false alert, and has not missed a vehicle that has entered my property. I have it installed on a 400 foot drive and the base is 2 walls from that LOS distance. I can't speak to battery life yet, as I haven't had to replace them, but I can attest that the install is a easy process, and the alert tone, although not blaring, is loud enough that my wife asked me to turn it down a notch. In attempting to get an alert to work, I purchased two other alarms prior to this model, one advertised 400 and th other, 800 foot range, neither worked satisfactorily. I think for my application that this is the lowest price, RELIABLE, alarm that you can purchase.

Like other posters, I have an old Reporter at my business that I installed 8 years ago. I have only had to replace the batteries in my transmitter twice since I owned it, and it goes off at least 50 times a day. It never false alerts. I bought one of these Chamberlain units for the house driveway, expecting the same kind of reliability since the housing is identical. Couldn't be worse. Battery life of the transmitter is about a month at best. Only triggers about 50% of the time, and that is on a one-car-wide driveway, with the unit on a fencepost right next to the driveway. Transmitter is only about 60 feet from the receiver. Tell me what good is having a "security" device that only works half the time?

Bought CWA2000 and 3 add on sensors about a year ago. TOO many false alarms, beep does not go off for 10 seconds. By then the vehicle or person is long past the sensor. I had the air pressure driveway bell for years and it as LOUD and instantanious. Bought this because it was electronic and no hose needed. Suggest prospective buyer read the reviews

This alarm the very definition of a economical driveway alarm. We clear the table of food, stuff the dishwasher, wipe bar and meet unannounced friends at the door. Thanks.

On its loudest setting, it is still not loud at all. I would not buy another one.

Purchased mine about a year ago. For one, you can hardly hear the alarm, very megar sound. Second, I have replaced the batteries twice now and now it has just stopped working. I would not recomend this device to anyone who has a very long driveway and does not have a straight shot to the receiver.

I have bought seven total of these alerts.."For myself & for my son... I still have the first two that I bought.. First five of those, were of the different model number.. Two out of those five of the first model didn't not last over just a few months.. I still have the very first two, that I bought.. The last two that I purchased were of the newer model numbers.. And work great... The units worked on an adverage of least five years. Even with the two that didn't last long.. I would definity again.. Note: I buy though E-Bay, at the best cost I can get.. Usually, paying no more than $40 some dollars for Sensor and Base..

The system you had before this one was excellent. I had it on a tree next to my drive and anything that came through was picked up. This newer model not only picks up everything in the drive but everything on the hwy. Its not facing the Hwy. I would love to have your older system back. It worked well for three years. When two of my sensors went out I was told that I had to upgrade to this newer system because the older ones weren't available.

For us the product has been GREAT! We have the base and 4 sensors along our driveway to let us know at point people are coming to the house. The price was very good and it performs as advertised. I do wish that it had different tones and was capable of connecting into camera system or audio system. For the price and the sense of security this sense is awesome.

I've had the CWA2000 for less than a year. I have 4 motion sensors. I installed them on the side of our house opposite from the bedroom side for night protection. I began to be suspicious that something was wrong when I realized the kids did not set them off while playing. I took the receiver in hand and triggered each of the 4 detectors one-by-one DIRECTLY in front of them. NONE of them worked. I have a lot of experience with electronic devices of many types. I removed and replaced the batteries in all devices. I tested, cleared memory and re-paired as per manual 3-4x. Each detector was tested with-in 1 foot of the receiver. NOTHING WORKED. Assuming that all 4 detectors would not fail, I assume that the RECEIVER FAILED.These devices are JUNK! Further, when originally installed I tested the range. One mile reception MIGHT work in a unobstructed desert but, at my home, the maximum range WAS about 60 feet subject to normal frame house construction. I have no recommendation for a better brand nor, "any dog in this fight" but, I can tell you from my experience, a dog would be a better dollar spent as opposed to CHAMBERLAIN CWA2000 JUNK.

Nine years ago I purchased the "Reporter" wireless motion detector, good for 50' detection, got good performance and decided to buy another because the "reporter" did work so well. Looked and could not find the "reporter" but found the 'Chamberlain' instead, looking just like the 'Reporter' but the receiver had been remodeled. I rec'd the 'Chamberlain' two years ago and I can't get to perform no better than 15 feet. That sucks, so I had to install it in a walled walk-way. Would I recommend this product? NO! When these new people took over the "Reporter" mfg, they tampered w/the sensitivity for the 'Chamberlain'. 091212.

Have had two of these. Both worked for about a year. Can not depend on to detect - sometime it does and sometimes it does not. Battery holder in transmitter deforms and batteries loose contact. Poor plastic parts.
