It's pretty sensitive. If the magnetic strips on the window/door sensor are more than 1/4" apart the alarm will sound. The motion detector is also pretty sensitive.

answer 5
Not sure about the door sensor but the motion detector is pretty sensitive. I have it sitting on my counter in the kitchen right now facing a wine bottle that has feathers on it. (dont ask why the wine bottle has feathers on it...lol) If the feathers move the motion detector senses it from about 8 inches away.

The Door Sensors will trigger if the magnet is one inch away from the switch. As for the motion sensor, it depends on if you put on the cover over the lens. It's a great system for the money.

It is made to be used by a/c. It does have a battery backup (9v) method in case the power goes out. I don't know how long the battery would last if you just wanted to use it in battery mode, it can be done though.

Both. If the A/C dies, the3 battery acts as back-up. The sensors are battery only.

No, according to the back of the box you have to connect the unit to a land line. It also says you can connect it to DSL. But you have to buy a filter. Then you can program it to call your cell phone.
