I have 2 of these with my Visonic wireless system. The system is almost 2 years old and I think these motion sensors are quite reliable if you have no pets.

I wasn't that happy with the motion detector that came with my powermax plus system. I still use it in a bedroom but in a large room the Tower40MCW really shines. I don't believe it has any pet capability, but in terms of protecting a large area, it is excellent!
