Pros:
Relativ smal but the circuit boards could be smaler. and does what it should do. Only short time testing but, a nice product for the price. Bouth of the circuit boards has holes so easily fixed to something. The timing potentiometer could have a + and - for easier adjustment of the time.
Cons:
No direct cons but read the "Other Thoughts"
Other:
In my opinion and with a "couple" of years of experiens in electronics. The relay on the circuit board is marked with 12V DC, this means that the product description it says 5-24V. Tested the board with 6volts and the relay didn´t pull befor you tapped on it. If you go higher than 12V it could break. I would recommend 9-16V.
Bottomline:
I got this for testing purposes only but I´m preaty shure I will use it for a light project in the future. If you need a cheap IR-motion detector buy this.
