Essential elements of a driveway alarm and alert system:
Transmitter - This is often referred to as a sensor. Usually are found in three flavors:
- Pyroelectic Infrared Sensor (PIR) - The most common. Detects any kind of movement. This is the most versatile type of sensor available and may be deployed in many different types of situations.
- Magnetometer - Detects large metal objects. Great at detecting cars, trucks, etc.
- Pneumatic - Changes in air pressure trigger the sensor. An example of this is the old rubber hose deployed at old time gas stations. As a car rolls over the hose, the increased air pressure within the hose triggers the sensor,
Receiver - The chime, the doorbell, the speaker, etc. This is the part that receives the signal from the transmitter (sensor). Most products will receive the transmitted signal and process that signal via an alarm, chime, message, blinking light or other means.Driveway Alarm Systems such as the Driveway Informer, Voice Alert System 6 are movement based driveway alarm and driveway alert systems. These systems typically work through the use of PIR, infrared, based sensors such as the sensor used in the Di2000S-A Wireless Driveway Alarm System. These sensors are going to pick up any type of movement that crosses the path of the sensor. These driveway alarms system may be used to monitor a driveway but are also versatile enough to use in many other applications. For example, the PIR systems may be used to monitor movement around a pool, shed, or other places. Other Driveway Alert systems carried by Security2020.net are typically either based on a magnetometer which picks up movement of large metallic objects. An example of this is the Driveway Monitor Alarm System. Because this system detects movement of metallic objects, it is limited to applications where you will have movement of cars, trucks, or other automobiles.
