As of August 2018 the State of California has changed the requirements of the Prop 65 law. We now must list on our website any possible chemicals the can cause cancer, birth defects or reproductive problem.
As an example:
ABS plastic contains styrene
PVC wire insulation can contain Di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (DEHP)
electrolytic capacitors can contain Ethylene glycol
Brass can contain Lead
flame retardant pc boards can contain Tetrabromobisphenol A (TBBPA)
Aluminum alloys can contain Chromium
To put it simply we are a small company and do not have the resources to test every single part, so we list every thing as hazardous. Please recycle all electronic parts responsibly and under no circumstance eat, drink or smoke these parts and wash your hands after touching!
Works fine but definitely not 360 degree detection
I am still experimenting, range at 5V is about 2-3m.
and its pretty directional not the 360 claimed. I am using it with a WeMOS D1 Arduino also from MPJA and Home Assistant, lots of fun. See https://github.com/brian32768/esp_mqtt_doppler

Just mounted one of these into A Mason Jar connected to a low power transmitter. Now have a driveway alarm for less than $5.00! Use my Ham rig as the receiver. Solar powered to boot.

Unbelievable price for a radar
Worked to about 18 feet. Draws about 2.8 mA in standby.

This detects human motion even thru an interior wall! Range about 20 feet, bigger objects perhaps further. Easy to hook-up and very low power.
