  • Unless you make several trips to and from your mailbox every day, or sit by the window watching for the delivery person to arrive, it is next to impossible to know when you have mail...until now! The Smarthome SELECT Wireless Mailbox Reminder and Mail Alert System is an easy to install sensor (transmitter) and receiver that lets you know the instant your mailbox has been opened. This simple alert system will free you up from wasted trips to the mailbox and time spent looking outside, and allows you to get on with your daily routine. It is also a great solution for those with health problems or physical limitations and as security notification device to avoid stolen mail and possible identity theft if the mailbox is accessed during non-delivery hours.

    No Tools Required - Double-sided high temperature 3M adhesive strips with Velcro are pre-installed on the sensor. Simply install two AAA batteries (sold separately) into the sensor and stick it to the inside of your mailbox according to the directions and turn the sensor on. Then connect the power adapter to the receiver, plug it in, and you're ready. A screw and nut is provided if you wish to attach the sensor to your mailbox with hardware.

    Wireless Communication - The sensor and the receiver communicate wirelessly via radio frequency. The sensor identifies when the door has opened from its normal position and sends a wireless signal to the receiver, which then emits and audible and visual alert. Under typical conditions this communication will reliably work on distances up to 300 feet. Please keep in mind that several factors can bring this distance down including a high number of walls, outside radio interference, trees, thickness of metal used on mailbox, etc.

    Audible Indicator - When the sensor transmits a signal to the receiver that the mailbox door has been opened, a distinct audible beep will go off a few times letting you know that the mail has arrived. This can also be a great security tool if you are having problems with people tampering with your mailbox, as you will know the instant it is opened.

    Visual Indicator - Along with an audible indicator, the receiver will also display a flashing blue LED light when the mailbox is opened. If you happen to be outside or miss the audible Indicator or if you are hearing impaired, this light is an easy way to see that you have mail or that your mailbox has been accessed. A convenient reset button is located on the receiver to turn the LED light off.

    * Important Note: This product works on almost all curbside, wall mounted, and slot type standard mailboxes with horizontal hinges that allow the mailbox to open up or open down. It WILL NOT work on mailboxes with vertical hinges that allow a mailbox to open from side to side like a door on your home. Heavy metal mailboxes will also affect performance of this product (as it would most any wireless device) and it is not recommended for use in this instance.

    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

    • Question: Is the Mailbox Reminder compatible with any home automation system such as INSTEON or Z-Wave?
    • Answer: No. The Mailbox Reminder is not intended to be a home automation device, rather it is a convenient, simple, reliable solution for letting you know when your mailbox has been opened.

    • Question: Does each Mailbox Reminder have a unique ID so that I don't get my signals crossed with my neighbor's?
    • Answer: Yes. Each Mailbox Reminder has been pre-programmed with different codes to prevent this issue.

    • Question: Will the antenna on the sensor stick out of my mailbox?
    • Answer: No. The antenna is only 3 inches in length so you can position your sensor accordingly and/or the antenna can be bent very easily to fit inside the mailbox.

    • Question: How do does the sensor mount in the mailbox?
    • Answer: The sensor comes with a pre-installed Velcro strip. Simply clean the door of the mailbox well, dry it thoroughly, peel back the protective strip on the adhesive and securely fasten it to the mailbox door according to the instructions. The Velcro Strip now attaches with double-sided high temperature 3M adhesive strips to withstand extended exposure to heat.

    After a few weeks the mail alert worked intermittently. I solved this problem by taping the remote batteries securely in place. It has worked well for over a year with no sign of the original barreries weakening.

    Love my wireless mailbox reminder. Has a loud alarm which can be heard all over my house. Since I live on an acre it's a pretty long walk to the mail box...this sure makes the trip worthwhile.
