The Ranch wireless driveway alarm arrived on the stated day, thank you. I ordered it as I run a B&B and I wanted a reliable alert system so that I know when guests are arriving. My previous driveway patrol alarm was a much cheaper version and proved intermittent and curiously selective, it would let me know a bluetit was trying to find a nest spot but not that a massive lorry backing was down my drive! So, we purchased yours and it is an excellent product, I haven't missed anyone since it's been up, it picks up the cars and pedestrians coming down my drive. I will say that it is very loud and I perhaps would have preferred an option of high/low volume. It does pick up my cat on one particular route she takes even though it's at the recommended height but I can live with that and she thinks it's great as I open the door to look and in she comes. All in all a great product and straight-forward to set up and efficient delivery from yourselves, thank you.

I have put this across my gated entrance and driveway approach. It warns me every time a car or someone comes through the gate and up the drive. I'm very inpressed with the way it doesn't seem to pick up animals so no false alarms! JN Carlisle

Ranch Wireless Driveway Alarm up to 300m Range Description
British made and incredibly reliable, simply position the sensor 2.5m from the ground and it will produce a Passive Infra Red signal in a narrow corridor shaped beam up to 40m away, so perfect for covering a length of driveway, boundary line, entrance path or gateway. Whenever the PIR senses heat and movement it sends a wireless signal to the small receiver Bleeper Unit in the house up to 300m away and because it issues a corridor shaped beam rather like a horizontal pencil torch beam, it is less likely to 'see' small animals beneath it.
The Alert Bleeper will sound for about 5 seconds every time the sensor picks up movement informing you of arrivals and deliveries etc. and you can even set the Alert Bleeper to only respond during the day or during the night or both.
In order to best determine range we have tested them in open ground using 'line of sight' but remember that each time a signal has to pass through an obstacle (wall or building for example) then the range will be decreased. As a guide, each time the signal passes through an obstacle you should allow a reduction of about 20 meters so, for example if the PIR is located the other side of an outbuilding, then the signal will have to pass through both walls of the outbuilding AND the wall of the house to reach the receiver unit reducing the effective range by up to 60 meters. Therefore it is imperative that you select the chosen location for the Motion Sensor & Receiver carefully bearing this in mind.
Fully recommended and reliable, we have these in use on farms etc. in Buckinghamshire after many years and still going strong!
