Bottom Line

This is an excellent consumer/prosumer grade device that will give you a fairly accurate idea of what is going on in your home or work environment. We recommend that you get one, even if you split the cost with a few friends and share it. The resale value on eBay is very high, after you figure out what is going on you can certainly pass it on to someone else and get about 70% of your investment back.
