The motion sensor works well on this unit. The "alarm" is loud enough to alert you when motion is detected but not so loud that it wakes up the neighbors.
Wish I had this gadget a few years ago when my water softener malfunctioned and flooded my finished basement. I bought this device for piece of mind, everyone should have one maybe it will alert me to another plumbing emergency before a major problem happens.
