Driveway alarms typically come in two flavors.  The sensor/transmitter is usually an outdoor rated Passive Infrared Sensor (PIR) or a Magnetometer Probe.

What’s the difference?

PIR sensors are the most popular.  These sensor will detect a combination of heat and movement to trigger.  A magnetometer will detect large metallic objects moving through the monitored zone to trigger.

Which one should I choose?

Ultimately, it comes down to the a) type of sensor you need, and b) how far it is from the transmitter/sensor to the remote receiver.

Driveway Alarm Systems are typically kits made of sensors and receivers.  The driveway sensor, or motion sensor is a motion detector that uses a passive infrared photocell that detects motion.  When a car enters your driveway, the sensor found in most driveway alert systems alerts and sends a wireless signal to a receiver.  These sensors are only triggered when there is a combination of heat and movement at the same time, eliminating false alarms caused by a standard motion sensor.

Many families and businesses in the USA have sensors to detect activity in their home, but neglect to add security alarm products outside there home.  There is no better peace of mind than to have a driveway monitoring product that alerts you when someone, or something, enters your driveway.

Driveway Alarm Systems are excellent solutions to alert your home or business when a visitor has arrived!

Perfect for long or hidden driveways, or to allow you just a little extra warning before guests (or intruders) arrive. We offer motion based (PIR); magnetometer (detects metal only), or pneumatic (rubber hose) kits and accessories. There is not one product that fits every scenario, but depends on many important factors :

  • Do you want to identify ALL movement or only vehicles?
  • What is the distance from the transmitter to the receiver?
  • Do you have metal, concrete, stucco, hills or a heavily wooded area?  (These factors will decrease the range of a wireless system).

Because of the level of sophistication newer alarm systems have, you can be alerted by many different ways like through an audible noise, an email or even an SMS text message, all customized to your preference. Remember that the alarm is not going to prevent a car or a person from coming onto your property. It only serves as a notification tool to let you know that the alarm has detected something.

Regardless of your needs, the wireless driveway alarm system is versatile enough to handle most situations and gives you the added comfort of knowing that your property is monitored.

Types of Alerts

It never hurts to have extra eyes and ears on your home or business, and there is no better way to add that extra layer of protection than to have a driveway alarm system installed. This alarm has a motion sensor that lets you know when cars, people or even animals are approaching- depending on which system you choose.
Our wireless systems work on batteries.  However, rest assured that in a power outage, your protection will not be affected, and your home or business will always be safe from harm. All you have to do is replace the batteries periodically.

The system works by sending a wireless signal from the transmitter to the receiver. Driveway alarms have one of 4 sensors: Passive Infrared, Magnetic Probe, Pneumatic, or Break-Beam.

Installation & Set up

The monitoring kits we offer are true do-it-yourself security products and are cost affordable. Setting up or installing this kits at a basic level is simple. As a matter of fact, kits like the Di2000S-A and DCMA-2500 installs in a manner of minutes. The most "difficult" part to install is the sensor/transmitter. The PIR (passive infrared sensors) are mounted using the supplied mounting bracket, while the magnetic probe versions are buried next to the driveway or area you want to monitor.  Also note that these products are robust enough for integration with other devices. The C-relays and live 12V DC output on many of the receivers allows integration with a variety of other products and services.
