microwave sensors (rcwl-0516)

Has anyone played with one of these?
They seem quite interesting, looks like they can see through walls.

The connection sensor-d1 mini seems easy, GND to GND, VIN to 5V, and OUT to D1. When a motion is detected, OUT sends a 3.3 voltage to d1 to trigger the gpio.
Wouldnt it be better to connect OUT to D4 which is the d1 mini's main LED?
