Our driveway alarm systems are excellent solutions to alert your home or business when a visitor has arrived! Perfect for long or hidden driveways, or to allow you just a little extra warning before guests (or intruders) arrive. We offer motion based (PIR); magnetometer (detects metal only), or pneumatic (rubber hose) kits and accessories. There is not one product that fits every scenario, but depends on many important factors :
-Do you want to identify ALL movement or only vehicles?
-What is the distance from the transmitter to the receiver?
-Do you have metal, concrete, stucco, hills or a heavily wooded area? (These factors will decrease the range of a wireless system).
It never hurts to have extra eyes and ears on your home or business, and there is no better way to add that extra layer of protection than to have a driveway alarm system installed. This alarm has a motion sensor that lets you know when cars, people or even animals are approaching- depending on how sensitive you adjust your system to be.
Long before the invention of alarms, people have relied on their senses or their farm animals or guard dogs to alert them to possible intruders on their property. Over time, this process of alarm was changed, and manufacturers introduce electrically based system that was connected to doors and windows. Because of its success and through evolution, we have since been improving the design to change with both the times and our needs.
There are wireless as well as wired systems that can be bought and used. The benefit of having a wireless driveway alarm is that it is easy to install and use right away. There is no longer need to have a professional do something that you can easily do yourself. Basic knowledge is all that is required to have your system up and running in no time. With a wired system, there is the added hassle of having to connect wires to control panels and hide wires in walls, ceilings or floors. Wireless is a much simpler solution.
As far as reliability, there is no difference between a wireless versus a wired system, which is why it makes more sense just to go with wireless to avoid the trouble of dealing with wires, maintenance and repair or upkeep.
Besides saving you money on installation costs, these wireless systems work on batteries. In a power outage, your protection, will not be affected, and your home or business will always be safe from harm. All you have to do is replace the batteries periodically, but this is about the only maintenance that would need you need to do. Best of all, if you are moving, uninstalling is a breeze, and you just take your system with you to your new home or business.
You will only need a couple of tools for installation. These tools are easy to obtain and are usually a screwdriver and drill. Most of the receivers would be installed inside the house to keep it protected from the weather if it your model is not water or weather resistant. You also want to make sure that it is somewhere can hear if you are using the alarm with audible tones, bells or chimes included in the configuration and setup.
The way it works is that the transmitter or sensor gets signals and sends the receiver the interpreted information so that the receiver can let you know what is going on. Drivewal alarms have one of 4 sensors: Passive Infrared, Magnetic Probe, Pneumatic, and Break-Beam. The Passive Infrared senses heat and movement. The Magnetic Probe, uses a magnetic coil to detect moving metal. The Pneumatic sensor triggers when air pressure changes are detected (car runs over hose). The Break-Beam sends a beam between the sensors and triggers with movement.
Because of the level of sophistication newer alarm systems have, you can be alerted by many different ways like through an audible noise, and email or even an SMS text message, all of it can be customized to your preference.
What is also great about wireless driveway alarms is that it can also be connected to other security systems that either have already installed or will install in the future. You can also integrate it to work with lights so that walkways or driveways are light when it detects motion.
In order to get the best one for you, there are some factors to consider before purchasing. As you read earlier, some sensors are more sensitive than others so you have to have an idea of what kind of things you want detected. For example, if you own a business with heavy traffic, you may only want the front door to alert you when a person walks in the door. Iif you own a house, you may want to be alerted when vehicles, as well as people, approach the driveway or the back door.
You also will want to consider what kind of range you would like between the transmitter and the receiver. Most models have a more standard six hundred feet range. Some models, however, have distances of a few thousand feet which mean that that this up to how far motion can be detected so that you can be alerted much sooner about approaching vehicles, animals, or people. When determining the distance you want, you have to consider the trees or walls that may interfere with the signal between the transmitter and the receiver.
So you may find that you need more than one driveway alarm for the same property, especially if it is large or has multiple driveways or multiple restricted areas. The wireless alarm makes it easy to reconfigure more transmitters and sensors to the system you already have in place.
Alarms can be used not just for driveways or door entrances; it can also be used for swimming pools, gated areas used for pets or children, doggy doors, garages, and even equipment. Pretty much any areas that have limited access to others can utilize the driveway alarm.
Remember that the alarm is not going to prevent a car or a person who can be an intruder from coming onto your property. It only serves as a notification tool to let you know what is going on. It also doesn’t have just to be about protection. For example, restaurants with drive-thru windows use the wireless alarm to let the cashier know when a car has approached so they can serve their customers.
Regardless of what your needs are, the wireless driveway alarm system is versatile to do just about anything you want to do and gives you the added comfort of knowing that your property is safe.
The need for a reliable home security system has escalated in the last few years. Today, with a good home security system in place, you can step out of your home with much needed peace of mind that your belongings or loved ones are safe. While there are many ingredients which come together to make the perfect home security system, monitoring and securing the property itself is often overlooked. With a small investment, you can have the peace of mind to know when a person, an automobile, of virtually anything enters your property. Driveway monitoring systems alert the user about the presence of a visitor/intruder on your driveway or property, and can prove to be extremely effective in the prevention of crime.
Driveway sensors: Driveway sensors are devices that detect the presence of a vehicle or intruder and relay this information back to the monitor in the house. Your choice of a driveway sensor may depend on your individual needs. While some people only prefer to be notified about the presence of a vehicle and can opt for the hose or the magnetic probe, there are others who look for more from their driveway sensors. The PIR based driveway sensor can detect the presence of both vehicles as well as movement of any kind. Driveway sensors differ in their transmission capabilities. While basic models have a transmission range of 600 feet and are for average sized homes, advanced models have a range of almost 3000 feet and are ideal for larger properties. There are many factors which may affect the performance of driveway sensors (objects in the line of sight, the construction of your home and the presence of an electrical fence close by).
The Metal Detecting probe is one sensor that detects the presence of large metallic objects (vehicles). You will never have to worry about a false alarm triggered by a stray animal ever again if you use a metal detecting probe. Similarly, the motion sensor based alarm uses PIR (Passive Infrared technology) to detect human presence or any movement at all on the premises. These systems may also be integrated with other security devices like intercom systems and lighting controls further to strengthen your home security setup.
Unlike wired systems, which require wires (usually with conduits) installed from the driveway to the house, wireless driveway alarms are easy to install and use. The range and the features of the system will vary from one model to the other. Basic models have an intercom like system where the sensor detects the intrusion or the presence of a vehicle and the alert is sounded inside the house either in the form of a per-recorded message or an alert tone. There are integrated alerts that can trigger lighting controls, CCTV cameras and other security systems upon detecting an intrusion. One thing that you must keep in mind is that its performance will be affected by the number of obstructions (trees, metallic objects) in its line of sight. A clear line of sight means a clear signal and peak performance. Choose from our extensive offering to meet your individual security requirements.
Our number one selling system is the Driveway Informer, Di2000S-A by Security2020. This product has an incredible range of up to 3,000 feet from the transmitter to the receiver. The transmitter is a PIR based wireless motion detector that will detect any movement within the detection zone. When a sensor detects movement, the transmitter sends a wireless signal to alert you. We have offerings that will only detect cars and some with a wireless range of up to several miles. So not only does a doorbell or door chime add to your home security, with a solid alarm, you can now be alerted when someone or something enters your property.
