A Driveway Monitor Kit with a Motion Activated Outdoor Sensor and Long Range Receiver Featuring a Bright Flashing Strobe Light

The ERA-DSDCR by Safeguard Supply is a state-of-the-art driveway monitor kit that includes a long-range driveway motion sensor and a desktop (or wall-mounted) receiver. With a range of up to 4,000 ft. from the passive-infrared outdoor sensor to the receiver, you won’t miss another visit through your driveway or parking lot.

We have coupled the ERA-DSDCR with a bright strobe, with your choice of color, so you now have a visual indicator to accompany the melody that plays when the sensor is triggered.

If you have a loud warehouse, shop, or garage, the flashing strobe light is a great way to add a visual indicator to an alert. Mounted on the wall, you’ll see the strobe flash for 5, 10 seconds, 1, or 2 minutes depending on the setting of the receiver, the ERA-DCRX. Like all products in the ERA series, you can add as many receivers such as the ERA-VRPX portable vibrating receiver, the ERA-RXPG plugin receiver with strobe, or an additional ERA-DCRX.

The receiver in this kit will work with up to 12 different ERA sensors such as the ERA-PBTX push button, ERA-UTX door/window contact, and the ERA-PIR indoor motion sensor.

More About the ERA-DSTX Outdoor Driveway Motion Sensor

The outdoor motion sensor in this kit is the ERA-DSTX. It uses passive-infrared technology to instantly trigger when the combination of motion & heat are detected through the monitored zone. With a variety of settings and long-range capability (4,000 ft.), you’ll never miss a visitor again.

Set up & mounting are easy. The sensor includes a mounting plate & swivel mount enabling you to turn & adjust the sensor to maximize & fine-tune the monitored zone to meet your specifications. The sensor is powered by a 9V alkaline battery (not included) and is long lasting. When the transmitter’s battery is low, it will make the receiver play the selected melody twice in a row.

Available Settings of Motion Driveway Sensor

  • Range: three settings of low, medium, & high sets the monitored zone size of the sensor, from 25 ft. to 100 ft.
  • LED: Off/On. When set to on, a small red LED will light for 2 seconds when transmitting to the receiver.
  • Filter: This adjusts the sensitivity of the sensor. OFF for indoor use, ON for outdoor use.
  • Rest: This will set the minimum reset interval between alarm activations, 120 seconds to 10 seconds.

Specifications of the ERA-DSTX PIR Outdoor Driveway Sensor

  • Powered by 9V alkaline battery (not included). Depending on usage and weather conditions, the battery should last 1-2 years. The receiver will play the selected melody twice (when triggered) to indicate the battery power level is low.
  • The ERA-DSTX (and all other ERA transmitters) will work with as many ERA receivers as needed. For example, add multiple receivers throughout your home, office, shop, or warehouse to ensure the alerting sound isn’t missed.
  • The sensor includes an operating manual, mounting-plate & swivel mount, & screws.
  • Outdoor rated works on raining or sunny days, with a temperature range of -30F to 120F.
  • The minimum zone size is 25 ft. to a maximum of 100 ft.
  • 4,000 ft. range from the sensor to a compatible receiver.

Extremely Pleased with 1800 Doorbell!

My daughter, grand daughter and I, owners of a three generation female-owned business, installed two kits of 2 receivers, 2 transmitters and 2 accompanying strobes in no time at all. The installation was a cakewalk for 3 mediocre-tech-savvy ladies! We were so satisfied with the outcome of our initial order that we ordered an additional compatible item. The customer service was exceptional and the order was received in 2 days.

To the 1800 Doorbell Team I want to say THANK YOU for building a perfectly designed product. I can't say enough good things about it. It is a quality product in every way and performed better than advertised. It was crystal clear, very loud, easy to install and just a joy to work with! Excellent!!

A. (Thomasboro, US)

I bought this remote doorbell kit and a second receiver. The installation was quite simple. I would recommend this device to anyone who wants to add a flashing light and sounder to their existing doorbell chime.

Love the Doorbell

The doorbell is just what we needed. We couldn't hear clients coming to the door that is far from the office. The bell was pretty easy to install. Thank you.

Between the sound and strobe light this is an excellent product!

D.W. (Lubbock, US)
Great Product

We installed this unit in a detected gym at an elementary school. The staff loves the fact they can see the strobe while they have kids in the gym playing. Easy to install.

R. (Georgetown, US)

Easy to install. Works fine. Liked the fact that it builds on the existing system rather than replacing it.

M.A. (Milwaukee, US)

This was so easy to install. It really does go through cement walls. I highly recommend it!
