NCVT are handy, but they provide misleading results >10% of the time in my experience.

Not something to trust you life to.  You would be dead in less than a week.
Trust but verify.. I would caution about taking warnings too lightly. Not random, but not a precision measure.

Yes. It can warn you of the presence of electricity, but it cannot prove the absence.

Nobody hears the dog that doesn't bark.
