Follow up to my review.
I mentioned problems with the motion sensor with regards to false alarms. This is caused by a combination of natural sunlight and reflective surfaces. Re positioning in several locations including shaded areas did not cure this. I have managed to find a compromise that may be useful to anyone who experiences similar problems.

1) Remove the backup batteries.
2) Plug your Rex 10 into a 24 hour timer.
3) Set the timer to run the Rex 10 from dusk to dawn.
4) Remember to reactivate the rex 10 from the button on the back of the unit, as the timer will switch the mains supply off and on but not reset your rex 10 to the active status, the following evening.

By doing the above you have a very reliable nocturnal gaurd dog. I have found the motion sensor is very reliable at night and to date has never given false alarms during the hours of darkness. Personally I can live with this because I feel that most intruders are likely to attempt entering your property under the cover of darkness. I am pleased with the results and feel its a fair compromise between reliability and a part time deterent all be it during the night, rather than daytime, and avoids those annoying false alarms which could annoy neighbours.
