    does this work via bluetooth on my pc?
    A shopper on Dec 28, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: "Sensor bar" is a bit of a misnomer. This is really just two infrared LED's, the actual sensors are in the WiiU gamepad or Wii controller. The bar just serves as a point of reference for the controllers.
    does this work via bluetooth for my pc?
    New User U on Dec 28, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: The Wii sensor bar doesn't sync with anything. It is simply an array of UV LED lights that the Wii-mote senses. The Wii-mote can be connected to PC via Bluetooth though, so this does work with PC emulation of the Wii system. That's what I bought mine for.
    Do you know what the max range it can be from the Wii unit for an accurate game play? Thank you.
    James C B on Jul 6, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: 20 feet or so depending on the Wiimote being used and type and freshness of the batteries installed in this device. All these bars do is emit two points of infrared light that the wiimote sees and calculates cursor position based on the distance and position of the lights.

    Just so you know
    For those of you saying that you needed to make sure this works through walls and that there was no set up or synchronization and that it was recognized right away:

    Just so you know how the sensor bar works, it doesn't actually transmit any data to the Wii. Behind the lenses are basically two LED lights that the wiimote "sees" as reference points to be able to track where your pointer should be on-screen. Any data being transferred is from the wiimote to the Wii. The only thing the wired one that comes with the Wii does by being plugged in to the Wii is draw power from it. I believe it's just 5v USB because a friend of mine modified his to connect to a USB port on his TV to draw power from it. So a wireless one is basically just battery powered LEDs that wiimote can see as the reference points.

    Not that there's anything wrong with any of this. I'll be buying one myself soon as my Wii will now be in a closet. I just wanted to shed some light for people concerned about working through walls or compatibility with their Wii.

    This should come with every Wii
    Monoprice doesn't have a description of this product, so I'll elaborate a little. This is a Monoprice-branded wireless sensor bar. It is scarcely larger than the wired version that comes with the Wii. It has a power button and a red LED light indicating when it's on. It takes four AAA batteries. The sensor also comes with a small adhesive plastic mount that can be used to better position the sensor on the top or bottom of your wall-mounted flat panel TV. The mount allows you to slide the sensor in and out for easy battery replacement.

    This thing works like a charm. It's functionally identical to the wired sensor bar that comes with the Wii, but has the major benefit of being wireless. Can't beat it for the price!

    Good, but eats batteries like no other.
    Great build quality, takes AAA batteries, and it will drain them if you leave it on for a day.

    PROS: Works great, and its a necessity with my stupid cat eating the thin wires all the time.

    CONS: The LEDs eat the batteries quickly, and can't leave it on, but this is what you get for running on batteries. No real issues, just dont forget to turn it off when you aren't using it. Only made this mistake once.

    works fine but the batteries last only 6-8 hours at most
    The product works fine, just turn off and play. However, I had to go back to the wired one. I used Sanyo Eneloop rechargeable batteries (4xAAA) and they seem to last only about 6-8 hours - assuming 1-3 hours of average use per day for 2-3 days. And, if the device is left ON for the night - you can safely take out and recharge the batteries, it is dead.

    Works just like it is supposed to
    This works great for what it is supposed to do. Don't make the mistake of forgetting to turn it off when you are through playing.

    PROS: no wires, easy for taking Wii with you

    CONS: Forgot to turn it off and ran the batteries down over night

    Wii Wireless Sensor bar
    This is exactly as described and works good so far. It's taking some getting used to in that you have to remember to turn it off after each use but that's to be expected.

    PROS: wireless

    CONS: have to remember to turn off power button

    Sensor Bar for Wii
    Great product at a fantastic price. Super fast shipping.
    October 1, 2012
    I solved the battery problem by finding a 6 volt transforming and wiring it into the sensor bar. I have my equipment rack about 20 feet away in a closet and it works great and now I do not have to worry about batteries running out!!

    PROS: worked great.

    CONS: none

    It was easy to setup and worked fine. However, it needs some kind of power management since it's tough to get everyone in the house to remember to turn it off after using it.

    I went back to the wired one.

    Average at Best
    Great price, Clean Design... works okay.

    My TV is on top of a dresser which means its pretty high off the ground. I put the sensor right below the TV and it had a hard time detecting the wireless sensor bar. It was probably the angle that i was playing at. I registered the wii settings correctly and yes it did work, but not accurately enough to play most games.

    Went back to wired...

    Advice: If you MUST have a wireless sensor bar due to location of devices and you have a normal entertainment set-up then this is for you! Otherwise, just stick w/ what you got cause it's one less headache to worry about.
