There is a product that we carry that would be the perfect solution to your problem and that is the LRA-EX1000 Doorbell Extender by Safeguard Supply. To see this product, view that answer to the question below.
- Open the cover of the receiver
- Hold down the "zone selector" button (the left button) for approximately 3 seconds until zone 1 starts to flash. Stop pressing the button. If you are deleting memory from zone 1, move to step 3.
- Push the left button again to scroll to the zone where you want to delete memory. The zone number will flash.
- Simultaneously, hold down the zone selector button (on the left) and the melody button (on the right) for approximately 3-5 seconds until you hear a short tone sound. The short tone sound means the memory has been deleted in that zone.
Typically there are two reasons why the sound may not be coming out of your LRA-DCRX long range receiver.
First, check the selector switch on the side of the unit. There are three modes you can set the receiver to a) strobe only, b) sound only, and c) strobe and sound. Often times when there's no sound it is because the selector switch is on sound only.
Second, check the volume control selector. Open the front cover of the receiver and locate the volume adjustment dial. Use a small screwdriver to adjust the sound level.
Take a look at this illustration to get an idea of where the selector switch is located.
The LRA-C1000 is a long range entry alert product designed for businesses, shops, warehouses, and larger homes.
The kit has two components, a transmitter/sensor (LRA-DCTX) and a receiver (LRA-PBTX). When the sensor is triggered, it transmits a radio signal up to 1,000 ft. to the LRA-PBTX receiver.
PLEASE NOTE: whenever a manufacturer provides you with a range, in this case, 1,000 ft., it is derived by an algorithm. Sometimes you get a little more range, but in most cases you get less range because of interference from environmental factors.
What this means to you is that if you need exactly 1,000 ft., or very close to it, you might have to look at another product like the LH-2500 (entry alert kit with a range of 2,500 ft.) There is also a range extender that works with our long range doorbell/alert products, the LRA-RPX.
This product, the LRA-C1000 has an additional challenge in that it is mounted on the door and the door frame. In commercial environments that usually means a metal door and or a metal door frame. This will cut down on the projected range of this product.
If you know you have the product programmed correctly, but it isn't working, try moving the receiver closer to the transmitter. If it starts working, it is a range issue. If it is a range issue, there are three things we can do:
- Try placing double-sided tape, a cardboard shim, or something that will provide some separation between the transmitter and the metal or concrete on the door frame.
- Get the LRA-RPX to extend the range up to an additional 1,000 ft.
- Upgrade to the LH-2500 long range doorbell entry alert kit.

The LRA-DR1000 is a long range wireless driveway monitoring kit that consists of two pieces, the LRA-DSTX (sensor/transmitter) and the LRA-DCRX (receiver).
The transmitter has a passive infrared (PIR) sensor that will detect a combination of motion and heat and when triggered, will send a wireless signal up to 1,000 ft. to the receiver.
For programming, we have a video that walks you through pairing the driveway alarm transmitter to the receiver.
