Unless you have interest in seeing if the garage door is closed while you are standing in it, I'd suggest that you pass on this item. Range is very short (much shorter then advertized) and does not travel through walls well, nor windows.
Also having to register to provide feedback is a pain.
Great product for those of us that craw into bed at night and wonder if we have closed the garage door or not, knowing that in the past you have left it open all night long. At around $39 it is easy to set up and it works well. It has a steady green light when the door is closed and a flashing red light when the door is open. The transmitting unit is fastened to the garage door with a Velcro strip that is included. You have to insert a small round battery which is included. The receiving unit can be easily fastened to a wall with a small screw almost anyplace in your home. There is a small plug/transformer with cord that powers the unit. If you place the receiver in your bedroom where see it from the bed, then you will never have to climb out bed to check your door again.
This monitor lasted less than one day. After it started blinking red and green lights, instead of a steady red (when the door is open ) or green (when the door is closed ) I went to Sears web site to check the previous reviews on it (which I should have done before I made the purchase ) and discovered that I was not the only one that had experienced this problem. Had I checked it out first, I could have saved myself 2 trips to Sears. I did receive a refund but I would have rather had a unit that worked.

Overall a fine product. Easy to set up and use right away. Would have liked an audible with the flashing light. Our garage is detached and the signal is going through several walls over 50' away. If anyone has the batteries discharge quickly, it's a short, return the unit. Mine has been up over 6 months with no problem and minimal response to interference. I did have to reprogram it once after 3 months and had 1 false trip, Overall, a good reliable product.

I was looking at mine today and noticed the garage door was open on my detached garage. I am writing my first review, because I noticed reviews that I do not agree with. I have had this monitor for over a year and a half with no problems. I have still never changed the batteries on the garage unit. Also, I read that someone was disappointed that the receiver part had to be plugged in the house. I never had the urge to wear it on my belt.
This outstanding wireless garage door monitor provides both security and status information by showing whether the garage door is open or closed. I use it to check the garage door status (make sure that it is closed!) each and every night.
Works great, lets you know if door is up or down. Solid Green Light : Door Closed. Red Flashing Light : Door Open. We have it in the kitchen. Just bought another one for a friend. Easy to install.

Installed easily and the adhesive on the velcro seems strong. Worked fine for 1 day. Then it would not register when the door was open. By adding a tilted mount to the unit so that the top points more downward, it seems to be working properly. Instead of using a ball bearing or something to trigger the switch, they should have used a mercury switch. I think the ball gets hung up.

Although this is called a "wireless" garage door monitor, that's not completely true. The smaller box is stuck onto the garage door with velcro, and the larger box must be plugged into an outlet in your home.
