"I would buy this product again"
I think this product works very well. It has many different sounds to choose from. Our bedroom is close enough for us to hear it go off. My son is a deep sleeper, so we have to go get him up sometimes when the alarm goes off. It does take time and patients with this.
My 10 year old son has been using the alarm for a little over a month. He used to wear Good Nites every night and I still had to change the bed every morning. He is no longer wearing Good Nites and I have only had to change the bed twice since he started wearing the alarm (and that was in the first week or so). He will wake up a couple of times a night to pee, sometimes because the alarm goes off, and sometimes he gets up before the alarm goes off. He generally does not hear the alarm when it goes off early in the night, but his body still responds because he stops peeing. I have to get him up to go to the bathroom though. Later in the night he will hear the alarm if he hasn't awakened first.
It's working for us!
My 8 year old boy is very motivated to stop wearing "Goodnites" and has been suprisingly successful with this device. I wasn't sure the first night if I could trust the alarm and worried about waking to a giant wet mess! In actuality, he woke up quickly when the alarm went off. There was only a small amount of urine in his underwear which was a quick easy change. By weeks 2 and 3 he was dry 5 out of 7 nights. We are now in week four and sticking with the program.
We were totally skeptical as far as how this would work. Our 6 year old son had only had a couple of dry nights in his entire life. This alarm helped him stay dry after 3ish weeks and he has had over 18 dry nights IN A ROW. We are absolutely thrilled...worth every $$$$ spent!
Doing its job
We have been using this for just over a couple weeks. My son still can sleep through it if he is in deep sleep, so I am very glad we got the extra receiver. We had trouble getting it to work out of the box and pairing up to both receivers. Contacting Malem in the UK per the instruction manual was extremely frustrating and not at all helpful. Fortunately I was directed to contact the Bedwetting Store where I purchased it and was helped by one of the best customer service people-thanks Nicole! It has been working ever since.
I have honestly never written an online review for ANY product I've ever used. I had to write about this one. My nine year old son had been so embarrassed with his bed wetting. I tried everything except medication - getting up at night, changing diet etc. With the Malem alarm he was dry after 4 nights. We are on week three of no accidents. I can't tell you what this has done for his confidence and self esteem. We purchased the wireless alarm. He puts it on himself. My 8 year old has the same issue and he can't wait to try it next!!!

Great tool to teach my daughter!
This alarm works great for my daughter, she is 6 and has been frusterated with bedwetting for years. The only complaint I have is that she does not always hear it right away... she is a very sound sleeper, and sometimes I hear it before she does and have to wake her. But it is really helping her confidence to have some 'only slightly wet' and some 'dry' nights.

Worth the $
My son previously used an alarm that had to clip onto his shoulder, he didn't like this & so we just clipped it to his underwear; unfortunately when it went off he often couldn't hear it & neither could I! It was a very inferior product (suggested to us by an expert) & the clip often broke & the wires even dislodged. This wireless model that I purchased, along with the extra adapter, solves these problems. It was very much worth it. It has been 4 weeks & we are seeing more dry nights but there is still much progress to be had.

Works pretty good
We have been using the alarm for almost two months, my 7 year old son is still not waking up to use the bathroom on his own, but the alarm is waking him up most of the time before he completely wets the bed. The problem I am having is sometimes after it goes off in the middle of the night and we try to put it back on him, it continues to go off so we can't use it. We try to make sure it is dry before we put it back on but it still goes off, this has happened several times in the last two months.
Great, reliable, convenient alarm
We started using this Malem alarm about three weeks ago. Since then, my 9-year-old has had a few dry nights and is consistently woken by the alarm if he begins to pee during the night. We're committed to using this method since it has already shown progress.
