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.

Easy install, picky about surface texture

The actual install couldn't have been easier (plug-and-play with the 12v AA battery pack and LC2 connector adapter sold here) and the velcro attachment has been holding up great. When it's aimed at a material or texture it can detect, it works flawlessly. I used this as a door switch for lighting in my safe, and it wouldn't detect the textured high-gloss painted steel of the door, or a piece of felt padding I was looking to attach to the door where the sensor was aimed as a work-around. It did detect all of the fabric in the safe, my hands, carpet, etc., just not the door. It detected the inside of a shoe box, but not the outside. The material and colors were the same, just with different textures. It may be a limitation of the IR proximity technology, and not necessarily the sensor itself, but it was frustrating. I ended up cutting a small square of shoe box cardboard and attaching it to the safe door with a sticky magnet where the sensor is aimed, and it works perfectly now.

Well made non-contact switch

Switch works as described, and controls the LEDs well.
The only caution is that the working distance is quite long. If there is anything within about 10" from it, it senses and switches off; the working distance appears to be as described on the package.
I had to aim it at an angle to work, but it does work well, and appears to be fairly robustly made.
