Maybe it is me not working this out properly, but I have struggled swith this so much.
I really want it to work.
In its design and styling, it is a great product, but I have really had problems.
1 - as soon as I inserted the batteries it started making a racket.
2 - I move it anywhere (even very gently) and it starts making a racket
3 - even put it near the pool and it makes a racket
4 - once in the pool, it started going off and the pool was still

It was so noisy, that my neighbours called the police ( I have lovely neighbours by the way) and I was still only trying to set it up.

I now have it sat on a shelf in my living room looking like an ornament - a very expensive red ornament....
I am frightened to put it in the pool for fear of another police telling off.

Yes, pool alarms are great, but surely they should not be this sensitive.

It is a pity ince I really want this to work, and other reviews say that people are pleased with it - mine however is like a ticking time bomb that I am frightened to go near
