Thanks. A very timely post for me. I have a driveway sensor that worked for over a year and now throws more false alarms than anything else.About anything? I just bought a driveway sensor from amazon, $80, solar power sensor, 1/2 mile range ( over Lake Michigan!), easy as pie, no downloads, no reconfigs etc.
My drive is 2600 ft through a jungle of rolling hills and it’s good for 1/3 of a mile. I was impressed..
Comes with 1 sensor but you can add up to 3 more. $$
For me, I have 6 Dakota Alerts covering 2 entrances and more than 1/2 mile of driveway/road. Some are close to ten years old and still working.Point being, I couldn’t test my new driveway sensor. If I drove the car, there was no one at home to hear sensor.. (dogs home)
I called my buddy, a real phone call, laid my phone on the receiver/alarm and asked him to listen. I drove up to the sensor and back and then grabbed the phone to ask him if it worked.
It did, 2nd try
At 2 am, it's nice to know that the dogs can go back to sleep downstairs or I need to join them as I let them out on the front porch, waiting with anticipation for some target practice.........God bless these United States..........Dennis
