Essential Info

Don't be caught unaware by unexpected visitors. The Wireless Motion Alert system sends an instant alert from the foot of your driveway to your home when a person or car enters your property. The weatherproof transmitter operates on one 9-volt battery (sold separately) and easily mounts on a tree or post near the driveway (mounting materials sold separately). The transmitter uses a passive infrared (PIR) beam to detect people or vehicles to a distance of up to 80 feet away, and then sends a radio signal back to the receiver, which can be placed in your home up to 600 feet away.

  • More Info

    The receiver plugs into a standard wall outlet and can be placed on a table or mounted on the wall (mounting materials sold separately). When the receiver gets a signal from the transmitter, one of four user-specified tones (Classical, Westminster Chime, Ding Dong, or Whistle) will sound for a few seconds. There is also a volume control, allowing you to set the sound to the desired level.

    Up to four different zones can be monitored by adding additional transmitters (sold separately). The transmitters can be programmed so they will each sound a different tone at the receiver. Extra receivers are also available to be purchased separately — put them in several rooms in your house, so you'll always know the instant someone steps onto your property.

    A Wireless Motion Alert system is also available with a driveway probe. Ideal for locations where there may be deer or other large animals that would cause false signals with a motion detecting system, this system includes a probe that's buried at the base of your driveway and sends a signal to the transmitter when a car is detected.

    The detection range is really poor.

    A great driveway alarm! I had tried some inexpensive driveway alarms before, but they always died after a while and would send false alarms or miss things. This one has been perfect. No false alarms at all (though be aware that squirrels will set it off!), and it chimes reliably. The sensor is at the end of our driveway about 100 feet from our house, and the receivers are in rooms on the back side (maybe 125' total). I got a second receiver unit for the other end of our house and they both work flawlessly. In fact, they both chime perfectly in sync. It's nice that you can select tones. On the downside, if you turn up the volume it does get distorted (though it doesn't really bother us). The black sensor box is also a little large, but we have it right next to our security camera and it makes for a good deterrent too. Pricey compared to the other units we tried, but a much better product in every way. Worth it!
    TUAN -- garland, TX   7/31/2013
    It very good . I like it
    MICHAEL -- portland, OR   7/7/2013
    I have it installed in my driveway about 50 feet from the house and it signals loud and clear every time.
    JUDITH -- templeton, CA   4/18/2013
    Does not always register vehicles coming up driveway. Great when it works
    DAVID -- indianapolis, IN   1/18/2013
    I purchased this system to alert me to activity in the grass alley behind my home. I attached the transmitter to a backyard tree and put the receiver in my living room which is approximately 200 feet away. It works perfectly! No false alarms and it picks up people walking up and down the alley, which is what I wanted. Works flawlessly!
    STUART -- kempsey, XX   1/5/2013
    Iam very happy with the item and the very quick service I will be a return custmer for sure also very happy with the price
    Briardale B&B -- albury, Australia.   12/10/2012
    This has so far been an excellent product, I have 2 transmitters covering external areas of my B&B in Australia. Lets me know when some-one is coming and going and is a great supplement to my internal security and so easy to set up and use. Cannot rate highly enough.
    ALLEN -- fort wayne, IN   5/17/2012
    Easy to install and set up. Like the volume adjustment and ease of use.
    tv station engineer -- Lexington KY   1/31/2012
    We have used this system at home to detect motion outside, after we had some items stolen. It works well with the receiver in the bedroom and sensors around the outside of the house. 600' range isn't required with our install, but the unit works through brick - block at about 100'. The contacts inside the receiver can power a small 12v alarm siren, put a sensor in the garage along with a really loud alarm, people will run away! The 9v batteries last about 6 months or longer, we replace them every 6 months. We've had these a couple years now. The clip that holds the cover closed on the sensor gets brittle and breaks due to exposure to the weather. You can figure out another way to close it easy enough duct tape even. Would suggest pointing the sensor slightly down to avoid traffic and the water problem others mention. If you have wildlife or stray dogs in the area, the sensor will pick it up, and you might as well unplug the receiver if it's really windy. Overall, we are pleased with the motion detection.
    THOMAS -- lake orion, MI   1/15/2012
    Easy to set up and works excellent. Just what I wanted!
    MICHAEL -- fowlerville, MI   1/3/2012
    Good flexible product. Hit and miss on the detection... not sure if it is a range issue at 150', line of site / no obstructions...
    MARSHALL -- chilmark, MA   11/17/2011
    like volume control
    GEORGE -- rosemount, MN   10/28/2011
    Unit received as advertised, but range is severely below 600 ft advertised. At 300 ft without any intervening structures or other obstacles unit functions only on an occasional basis. Not worth the money.
    STEVE -- langham, SK   9/23/2011
    Works great! (better than expected). Very easy to install. Motion sensor range was much better than expected and had to adjust a little because it was picking up traffic going on roadway 100'+ away. Well worth the price paid. Highly recommended.
    Dan -- cincinnati, Oh   8/10/2011
    I have two units; one used as a driveway alert, placed 500 ft. from the receiver,that works perfectly. other than the occassional deer setting it off. Have another transmitter in my garage approx. 200 ft. from my house and it picks up anything that moves. These units provide a great sense of security. I'm in the process of ordering one to give as a gift to my aging in-laws.
    MARSHALL -- havana, FL   7/18/2011
    Easy to install. Great range. I feel alot safer knowing when someone in pulling into my driveway.
    KAREN -- bosque, NM   6/6/2011
    very happy but we have high winds with dust and it activates the alert. Need to find a way so that it does not pick up the motion of the dirt flying around
    SAM -- murphy, NC   4/22/2011
    Installed with ease but had to reposition transmitter to stay in touch with receiver brcause of false alarms. Since then it seems to work good.
