Description

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 Di2000S-A 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 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.

Highlights of the Di2000S-A

  • High quality American Made product
  • Reliability that you can depend on
  • Amazing range, sending a wireless signal up to 1,000 feet away
  • Expandable: four zones (each plays separate chime sound) by adding additional receivers and additional transmitters (sensors)
  • Long battery life of transmitter, estimated 5,000,000 rings

These are just a few of the reasons why this wireless driveway alarm has been, and continues to be our number one selling monitoring system.  Although this is a best in class system to monitor your driveway, it has many uses beyond that.  We have customers who mount transmitters/sensors along fence lines to monitor movement along a property line..  We even have a customer who uses the Di2000S-A  to monitor when his cows break through his fence line–no kidding!

    I have been buying these driveway alarms (and installing) then for my customers for years. The manufacturer’s published range on this driveway alarm is actually 1,000 feet but I have installed it for customers who have gotten close to 3,000 feet range.rnrnAs a side note, we also use this as an outdoor entrance alert product. The only reason I am giving it a 4 is b/c nothing is perfect..I wish there was a portable receiver with this.

    I purchased the Driveway Informer/Alarm several weeks ago and it has met my needs for the entrance to my property. I am aware that someone has entered the property before they come to the door. It is a well-made product and easy to install.

    The driveway informer possibly saved our life on Dec. 8, 2010 when intruders approached our home at 4AM. I held a gun on the two thugs until Sheriff’s Dept arrived. One had three warrants and was a reg. sex offender. The Driveway Informer can be your life-saver!

    The driveway alarm works well. We have it about 500 ft down our driveway from the house so we know when someone is approaching the house. It is a good product for the price. We tried a cheaper version that was rated for up to 1,000 ft but would not work at 500 ft.

    Purchased 2 alarms and an extra sensor. One alarm was to alert me if my 96 yr. old Mom had unexpected visitors when I was next door at my home. Her dementia prevented her from using good judgement and I couldn’t stand every minute watching the house to see who called. Brother installed and darn thing worked so great every vehicle using our deadend road was announced! Yep, the 4 AM news carrier! That got fixed quickly! The second unit and extra sensor went to my brother’s house. His worked too good also, but both are adjusted now and are fantastic. Only took about 15 min. to install. Have never felt so secure!

    Works great – even around a bend and through the trees – all the way to grandma’s house!rnJust wish it had the option of a longer chime (maybe 8 dongs instead of 4). Not disappointed at all, would recommend to others!!

    Directions were not real clear as to WHERE the screws were located to open but generally was easy to set up and use.rnwas VERY sensitive during a recent rain and kept going off until I had to turn volume to almost nothing. Today seems to be ok. LIKE the counter on the receiver!! Great idea to keep track!!

    I purchased the driveway monitor in 2011 after much research I found this product to meet my needs. I also purchased another driveway monitor in 2015. The only thing that I think needs to be addressed: Over time being outside the rain water leaked into the inside of the transmitter around the antenna. I chose a quick fix by applying some rubberized tape around the antenna. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who is tired of throwing away money on all the other products that don’t last more than a few months at best. The company is very proactive in helping their customers with the products that they sale. Very pleased !!!!

    I’ve had other motion sensor driveway alarm systems, but nothing works as good as this one. I have two transmitters. The front is over 1000 feet and it works every time. Ive had it installed now for three weeks, picks up every car and person entering my property. The receiver has a volume control which is nice. It also has 4 different sounds to choose from. Excelant device!

    hugs and kisses. I bought and personally installed 2 outside sensors and 2 inside receivers and they work very well. My wife loves them and thinks I am a genius. Maybe I exaggerated a little but she definitely loves the alarms when someone enters our gate which is 1000 feet from the house.

    Love it works great, so great when my husband mows close to sensor I hear every swipe. Have not had animal set off yet…had to move receiver closer to sensor when wouldn’t work one morning as husband leaving for work & raining it didn’t go off…moved the closest it can possible be so hope it does work better during rain. Although it’s on the loudest it can be can’t hear when I’m at far end of house. Anyone have any suggestions? Will update as time goes by.

    I was looking for a driveway alarm that would not get set off by tree movement or shadows. So far it does a good job just picking up people, vehicles, and animals. A few times it picks up birds. The only thing I do not like is the tone. It is not a clear crisp sound, it almost sounds muffled. Then there are only 4 sound options and most of them are way too long. I only have it set to the one single tone. Would like something that does not sound like a muffled doorbell. The distance that the signal reaches from the sensor to the receiver seems to be very good. I have not tried it at our furthest point yet.

    Only up a couple weeks. Set up approx. 75 yards from house. Seems to work when it should. Would give 5 stars if had more experience with the unit.

    Very impressed haven’t had any false alarms. Also I have a lot of trees and bushes that the signal has to pass through or around and problem.

    First driveway informer I purchased came from you. This is my 3rd. It has stood up well in normal weather. The only time I’ve had to purchase again is during an extreme weather situation. The quality is good and price is in range. Living in a country setting with burglaries & home invasions, It’s a safer feeling knowing I can see who is coming in so I can be prepared. Several friends have gotten information from me on these informers.

    Without a doubt this is the best driveway alarm on the market. Wish I would have found this unit sooner before wasting my money on less expensive units. Just one problem, the transmitter bracket which is made out of a VERY thin aluminum will create problems when snow plowing. The bracket is too weak to keep the transmitter stationary when snow hits it.
