I've been using this device for a bit over two months now. It works very well, however initial placement was a pain. It is very sensitive to EMI interference. The phone line is in my office, and my office is full of computers. I eventually settled on attaching the device to the wall in the archway entrance to my office, as it was the furthest point I could get away from all the computers, while still having it close enough to a power source and the phone line. I had to set it to low sensitivity, and disable all the alarms (apart from the connect/disconnect beeps). It pretty much constantly detects a storm 34km from my house, even on bright clear days (there must be some kind of EMI that it is picking up), although it does show 'clear' from time to time. This is not an issue when an actual storm gets closer, as it has no problem detecting those, and it safely disconnects the line if the storm is within range.
I have experienced several storms since installing this device, and I am happy that the device works.
