    Hi all, we've been monitoring our bedroom for about 10 days now. Per the Packtite instruction video/photo in the manual for platform bed, we placed the monitor on the wall, underneath the headboard as shown in the linked photo. As you can see from the photo, the bed isn't exactly flush with the wall - I'm just concerned about a false negative if we didn't place it in an enticing spot for the bugs. Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    Passive Monitors are installed on the bed not the wall. While they can work there (they have been known to work in linen cupboards) they work best when installed on the bed base as per the instructions on my site and via http://www.bedbugmonitors.com .

    Hope that points you in the right direction.
