A Reliable Wireless Driveway Alarm Made in the USA!
Wireless driveway alarms, like the Di2000S-A, will keep you informed and safe by alerting you when a car, person or animal enters your driveway or any area you would like to monitor. The system works by sending an alert when the passive infrared motion sensor detector is triggered.
The Sensor/ Transmitter Used in this Alarm Kit:
The Di2000S-AG uses a state of the art passive-infrared (PIR) sensor to detect any movement within the detection zone. When the sensor detects motion it transmits a wireless signal up to 1,000 ft. away to a plug-in receiver. When the receiver receives the alert, it emits a chime sound in order to notify you of any movement.
The sensor/transmitter sends out an invisible beam that is approximately 2” x 2” at one foot away from sensor to approximately 2′ x 2′ feet at 40 feet away from sensor. Essentially, the beam sends out a conical shape for a detection zone. If anything with a heat signature moves within this detection zone, the transmitter is triggered and will send a signal to the receiver, making it chime. The sensor is powered by 2 “AA” batteries (not included) and mounts with the supplied mounting bracket and mounting screws. Inside the transmitter are dip switches which allows you to pair it with other transmitters and receivers, and to determine the chime sound the receiver will play when triggered.
The Plugin Receiver in this Kit:
The receiver supplied in the kit plugs into a standard wall outlet. The front of the receiver features a counter that allows you to track the number of entrances through the detection zone. On the back of the receiver is a volume control knob that allows you to adjust the volume according to your preference. Also on the back of the receiver/speaker are two terminal screws; one is to power an external speaker, allowing you to hear the chime sound in another room or location. The second terminal screw is for a live 12 volt output, which can be used to power a variety of accessories such as strobe lights, sirens, counters, X10 interfaces, and virtually any product powered by 12 volts.
The transmitter in this kit is an outdoor rated PIR (passive infrared) motion based sensor. Passive-infrared requires the combination of movement with a heat signature to trigger. Although only a tiny amount of heat is required to trigger it, this helps cut down on false triggers by things such as falling leaves, shadows, etc.
Simply mount the transmitter to a pole, mailbox, or tree and when the sensor is triggered, the sensor will send a wireless radio signal up to 1,000 ft. to the receiver.
Transmitter dimensions: 5”L x 3.5”W x 2.5”H.

Customer ReviewsWrite a review
excellent product. Works as advertised no more surprises.
The system has been installed about a month and has worked very well. It sounds off every time and has given no false alarms. The ding-dong can be heard throughout the house. Customer Service phone support has been friendly and very helpful.
Placed the transmitter on the side of a tree 42 inches from the ground so that small critters wouldn't set it off, and it is about 150 feet from the receiver. Deer still trigger the alarm occasionally, but that was expected.
The transmitter could be offered in different color options in addition to green. Tan, brown, black, and even a camo pattern could improve the unit's concealment in different environments.
The screws for the transmitter mounting bracket and housing were very difficult to turn initially. Once removed, a little silicone grease on the threads fixed that.
Only two screws hold the transmitter housing together, leaving a slight gap on the screw-less sides. Four screws could hold the assembly more tightly together all around.
The volume control's location and small size underneath the receiver makes adjustments a little inconvenient. A top-mounted control would improve accessability.
The Driveway Informer is a very good system...USA made...and one that should last for many years. Very nearly a five-star rating.
shipped fast and very easy set up. It's been raining and the unit has been working flawlessly. Very loud alarm also! I called a number of times and a very nice and informative person named Marlieen always answered my question quickly and she was knowledgeable of all the units
We have purchased driveway alarms from here previously and they have always worked great. This new one works great as well. Only negative is the green color of the outside unit of our new driveway informer. Our old one was black and we liked that much better as it did not show up as much.
Excellent customer service. All questions answered with clarity and patience. The driveway protection devices were easily installed and they work well. The transmitters seem waterproof and I’m interested to see how they survive the winter however I believe they will do extremely well. I will be adding more for additional protection. I highly recommend 1800doorbell for their service and support.
