Steps To Choosing A Driveway Alarm

Are you someone who has recently moved into a new neighborhood and you are constantly worried about the safety of your loved ones? Are there multiple crime reports in your area every day? Do you find it difficult to focus on your work because of the constant worrying thoughts that come into your mind regarding the safety of your home? If the answer to any of these questions is yes then you certainly need to install a driveway alarm. Some of the readers might have already implemented these security systems while some might get introduced to it from this article. It’s worth reading even if you have a drive way alarm installed in your home or office as it will help you to tweak it and enhance its performance. In this article we will elaborate the steps you need to take in order to install a driveway alarm system in your home or office.

  • Determine the range or minimum transmission distance required:

If you have a small home then you don’t need to think much about it. But if you have a multi-storied home or an office in a big building then you certainly need to give this point due consideration. In simple terms you can think of this distance as the distance between the sensor in our driveway and the receiver in your home or office building. A key point to note here is that if you buy a driveway alarm system with a short range then there are chances that you will not receive an alert when an intruder enters the space of your driveway.

  • Decide on the type of alarm system:

Basically there are two types of alarm systems available in the market. The first one that will trigger an alarm when anything including a human or animal invades your driveway space. And the second one that will trigger an alert only when a vehicle enters it. Before purchasing a driveway alarm you must be clear about your objective of purchasing the driveway alarm system. If you have a busy but safe neighborhood then the former type can actually become a headache. On the other hand if you have a quiet but unsafe neighborhood then it’s better to choose the first category of driveway alarms i.e. the ones that can sense anything moving in your driveway.

  • Clear the obstacles:

If there are obstacles in the path of the sensor and the receiver then it can effectively minimize the range of your alarm system. In order to avoid this you should trim the trees in your lawn and remove any other obstacles that might interfere in the wireless communication.
