    What our Testers Liked
    This review is a combination of opinions drawn from our testing groups across Scotland.
    Our testers liked that it did not require a smartphone or internet, that texts could by received by any phone. Liked the unobtrusive nature of the monitoring.
    What our Testers Disliked
    Initial thoughts: Concerns over size (too bulky)
    Poor phone connection missing the alert,
    Cost - high initial cost and ongoing subscription (subscription caused most concern)
    Would the PWD switch it off at the socket?
    Some concerns at leaving the sockets on all the time.
    What is Interesting
    The testers expressed unease at committing to monthly subscription. This has proved a common theme across other products that have been tested.
    What our Testers Said
    This product offers welcome reassurance, but some aspects i.e. monthly subscription and leaving sockets switched on creates unease.
