The ERA-DSDCR 4,000 ft. Range Best Performing Driveway Alarm is Simply the Best Choice Available!

1800doorbell set the industry standard for a reliable, long-range wireless driveway alarm over 20 years ago with the debut of the popular, Driveway Informer, Di2000S-A.  Now we would like to introduce a new Long Range Driveway Sensor Alarm Kit, the ERA-DSDCR.

We Guarantee the ERA-DSDCR Driveway Alarm Will Work or Your Money Back!

We've seen other models and brands come and go over the years, but the Di2000S-A has always proven itself to be the most reliable wireless alarm for driveway  that we have found...until.  We are dubbing the ERA-DSDCR as the Driveway Informer 2.0. 

With more reliability (hard to believe), more setting to control the driveway sensor, and with a transmission range of up to 4,000 ft., it's the best Long Range Driveway Sensor Alarm kit we have to offer at

Safeguard Supply has leveraged the popularity of the ERA-DCRX and designed a sensor/transmitter, the ERA-DSTX, with the features their customers ask for, to create a best in class driveway monitoring system guaranteed to work--or your money back.  Just like they do with all their ERA products, they stand behind their guarantee.

Common Uses of the Long Range Wireless Alarm for Driveway

Use as a Long Range Driveway Sensor Alarm?

The most obvious use of the Driveway Informer Pro (ERA-DSDCR) by Safeguard Supply is as a Long Range Wireless Alarm for Driveway.  By mounting the sensor outside and aiming the sensor across the driveway, or other entrance, you will get an immediate notification when a car, or person, passes through the monitored zone.  The sensor (ERA-DSTX) can be placed up 4,000 ft. from the receiver, which is typically placed in your home.

Use as a notification alerting device for your office

Another common, but less obvious use of this driveway alarm kit is to alert warehouses workers when delivery drivers enter your delivery area.  As an example, at our offices we have several commercial delivery companies drive up to our facility daily.  Fedex, UPS, and the post office deliver daily.  We have the driveway sensor/transmitter mounted to a tree, shooting across the parking lot area the delivery trucks would approach.  When the do approach and pass through the sensor's invisible beam, an instant alert is triggered in the office.  That provides our warehouse manager additional time to get the packages ready and the door unlocked for the delivery team.

Use with Other Products in the Safeguard Supply ERA Line of Products

The sensor in this kit is the ERA-DSTX driveway sensor/transmitter and it's fully compatible with all other products in the ERA family.

ERA-DCRX - this is the receiver featured in this kit.  Additional receivers are available to expand the notification, listening areas to other rooms of your home and office.  There's no limit to the number of receivers you can add.  Pair up to 12 different sensor/transmitters to each DCRX receiver.

ERA-VPRX -Is an optional portable receiver that plays a melody and vibrates when it receives a signal from a compatible ERA transmitter.  The receiver ships with an installed rechargeable batter and charger, with a standby time of up to 6 days.  Stick it in your pocket or sit it on your desk to ensure you never miss a delivery or alert.

ERA-UTX - The ERA "Universal Transmitter" may be used as a door/window contact or a push button.  Rugged and outdoor rated, with a range from receiver of up to 4,000 ft., this transmitter is rock-solid reliable.

ERA-PIR- This is an indoor rated pir, passive infrared motion sensor, used to monitor a door way or hallway.  Easily mounted using the included bracket, this product is a great customer service tool.  Mount over a door entrance to signal whenever a customer enters your store.

Easy as Pie

Hooked everything up in a short afternoon. I did connect some aftermarket lights to the receiver. They were also 12v. No big deal. Now I have an entire shop that lights up when someone comes into the office. Just what I needed.

Wow! Love our new chime system. We put up sensor at entry door... drug aisle... candy aisles. During slow times allows my staff and myself to step away and do other tasks. Then our new "little helpers" let us know when customers have arrived or need extra attention in other areas of the store. Super easy install... I am also going to install a few of the stand alone sensors in other areas that may need our attention. Thanks again for a great product. Scott... Owner.

This unit works extremely well in a LARGE warehouse in Elgin, IL. Installed one unit with Bell at loading docks and another at the complete opposite end of the building approx
325ft distance away, (era-dcrx with bell and stobe) . Signal must pass thru concreete exterior wall and fully stocked warehouse, purchasing another unit for the shop manager to install in his office. Great product hope it has longevity
