Not the same sensor as previous orders

I have ordered several of this sensor for previous closet door projects and I needed another once for the exact same application. The new version (sensor "eyes" further apart) as shown in the first of three pictures are wider than the second picture of the three pictures included in the part description. The new "wider eyes" does not operate as well as the "narrower eyes" (previous orders of this part number). This new sensor detects an object at further distances like the previous variant but once you get within an inch or so, the sensor no longer "sees" the close object. So, when using to detect a door closing, it works properly until the door is almost closed and then the sensor goes hot again. Eventually I got the sensor to work after playing with the distance and angle from the approaching object (door). I will not purchase this part in the future unless I could get the "narrower eyes" version.

Works great, needs mounting ears

Great little gadget. Using it to control under cabinet lights. Facing down the bright counter was picked up by the sensor and caused erratic triggering. Rotated it 90° and all was perfect. Triggers and holds with a wave closer than about 6". Great in the kitchen when working with massy hands.

Only lack is mounting. The unit comes with a piece of double stick tape, but is not suitable for long term mounting. (Add some mounting ears! - note to SBL). I used steel tape to mount but thats not ideal either. Going to mount with epoxy at final install.

They work good. But you definitely have to set them back. To close to the closed door and they come back on. Which is surprising that if it is right up against the close door they turn on. I needed a couple inches gap for them to work correctly.
