Electromagnetic parking sensor

Hi Has any one here fitted a electromagnetic parking sensor?

I have found 2 companies selling them here at No Holes Parking Sensor | Parking Dynamics Reverse Sensor
and here No Holes Parking Sensor | No drill | Electromagnetic | EPS they also offer a Can interface

Has anyone dealt with, and had any problems with the unit ?

I found a couple of videos !!


This is a bit iffy but its a plastic chair !!


and lastly one from the company.

I installed them in the 5-door but I was not impressed at all.
First I tested them by hanging the metal strip between two poles. Worked perfect! First alarm at about 60cm, continuous beep at 15-20cm.
Then I sticked it with some tape to the outside of the civic. It only started to warn at 15 cm, and continuous beep at 5 cm! The manual said that an additional strip could help, so I put a piece of wire with tape together with the original strip: hardly any improvement.
I decided to mount it anyway since I had bought it, but it was a disappointment all together. For example when raining, or with a wet car the thing goes mad. It reacts acceptable to some materials, and way to late on other materials. I really couldn't trust it so I took it off.
I think if it really worked well you would find it as an OEM option on many cars, but everyone still uses the parking pimples. Must have a reason...

Just what I was looking for, Thanks Koen.
I don't think I will bother now.

I have fitted the electromagnetic parking sensors, they were pants.
Ended up removing them and fitting the button type, cost about 30 and work fine
