"We have airbnb guests check in and I was able to greet them on the porch and not worry about missing them! It gave me time to lock up the dogs before.
And it's solar!! We don't have electricity in the driveway so that is a great feature. It also works for longer driveways for up to 1/2 mile!!!
We definitely want to get one for our off-grid treehouse, which won't have power at all and has a long driveway! This would be great for that too!
So far 10/10, it has been working perfectly, and when adjusted to the right angle it doesn't go off just because, only when something truly passes by it, human or car.”
I have not received the alarm at 2189 c.r. 213 Durango Colo 81303
Works well so far
Instructions are a bit ambiguous but figured out that you start with all sensors on channel one then switch them after addressing them. Works great.
Really like this system. Has excellent range and works great. Customer service was very helpful when I had an issue. Recommend.
This driveway alarm is exactly what I was looking for! Tired of getting surprise visitors on my doorstep, I bought this amazing driveway alarm. It alerts me when I have a visitor before they get down the 1/4 mile long drive. Very easy to install and long lasting battery life! Weatherproof and nearly indestructible! You can also add multiple sensors to get full coverage on all areas of your property! Amazing product for under $50!
1. How does Wireless Driveway Alarm work?
The sensor has a passive infrared lens that activates when it senses both heat and motion. When the sensor is triggered by a person, car, or large animal, a signal is sent to the receiver in your home that will alert you with the sound you choose from the zones. The ideal maximum range between the receiver and sensor is 1/2 mile. The sensor has a maximum 30ft detection distance and the sensitivity is adjustable with low(approx 20ft.) and high(30ft.) mode. There's no wifi or monthly contracts required. Additionally, the system is weather-resistant and designed to work throughout the seasons. It works the same for day and night. It's perfect to be used to detect who's on your property, when the mailman arrives, and more, especially for rural areas with driveways.
2. How do I know which system works best for me?
All of our driveway alarm kits have 1/2 mile wireless long range for the sensor and receiver. eMACROS driveway alarm features solar and rechargeable sensors. The 4-zone kit has the 4-zone receiver(square and round option) which supports up to 4 sensors and the 7-zone kit also has two color options. The Hosmart driveway alarm has 4-zone kits (two color options) featuring a rechargeable sensor with better price.
3. Are the solar wireless driveway alarm and the rechargeable driveway alarm compatible with each other?
No, the sensor and receiver can only be paired if they're the extras from the same kit.
4. How are the wireless driveway alarms powered?
eMACROS wireless driveway alarms all include solar-powered sensors with solar panels and built-in rechargeable batteries. The receiver runs on 4AA batteries or AC adapter(included), Hosmart wireless driveway alarms include rechargeable sensor without solar panels but with built-in rechargeable batteries. The receiver runs on 4AA batteries.or AC adapter(included).
5. False alarm
If you're experiencing many false alarms, it could be due to a few different reasons. Firstly, examine your sensor's mounting position. Be sure your sensor is mounted around 4.5-6 feet off the ground to eliminate false alarms from smaller animals, and not facing direct sunlight. Your sensor is automatically set at the pick up distance of 30ft, so adjusting the distance down to 20ft by the low-mode sensitivity can help eliminate false alarms(see from the manual).
Obstructions such as metal, brick, trees, or inclines in your driveway can cause inference. They reduce the distance the signal travels. If you're not getting the sound from the receiver, the sensor may be too far away from the receiver to get a good signal under the interference condition. Adjust the position of the sensor and receiver to create a more reliable connection. Make sure the sensor is mounted around 4.5-6ft high.
7. What's the difference between the receivers of eMACROS 1/2 Mile 4-Zone Solar Driveway Alarm?
The square one is the classic version. The round one is a new version of design with higher quality. Both of them have the same function. 4 chimes on different zone and support up to 4 sensors each. Both run on the 4 AA batteries and have low-battery alert.
