Details


    This driveway alert is part of a customizable doorbell and alert range. Additional motion sensors, gate alert sensors and door button units can all be connected to one portable receiver. The pack contains a PIR motion sensor and a receiver unit. We've received a number of product reviews telling us that the alerts are very loud, so we've updated the product description below to give you some more information. Thank you for everyone who gave feedback, all have been provided to our product development team to improve our range.

  • The receiver unit has 4 accessory input channels
  • One channel is dedicated to door buttons only and has a choice of 36 melodies.
  • The other 3 channels are for pairing to alarm sensors and have only one Alarm sound available per channel.
  • Each of the 3 channels has a unique sound, allowing you to know which sensor has been triggered in a particular area of your house or garden.
  • Channels 1 & 2 have a loud, alarm like sound. Channel 3 is a softer, more chime-like sound if you'd prefer that.
  • The volume of sound on all 4 channels can be adjusted between high, medium, or low by pressing the button on the back of the product.
  • You can also select silent mode where only the blue LED light flashes for times where you want peace and quiet.
  • False alerts can be minimised by adjusting the position & angle of the motion sensor.
  • Setting up your Driveway Alert

  • Connect in minutes with easy mounting, pairing & convenient wireless operation (uses 3 x AA batteries for Receiver & 3 x AAA batteries for Sensor - not included)
  • Position the PIR Alert Motion Sensor where you need protection near entrances, doorways, driveways, garages, shops, restaurants, cafes, reception areas, lobbies or anywhere activity occurs.
  • The Receiver unit emits an audible alarm & lights up when the Alert Sensor detects movement.
  • Enjoy the convenience of wireless with a long range up to 200ft/ 60m* from each Sensor to Receiver.
  • The PIR Alert Sensor detects motion up to 40ft/ 12m away with a weatherproof design for monitoring driveways & other outdoor locations, with the ability to adjust the position using the rotating mounting brackets.
  • Easy to use do-it-yourself wireless alert kit for home or business provides peace of mind without breaking the bank.

Love it
i have had Swann driveway alerts for several years. I have them all around the house and they are a great addition to our camera system.
When i bought mine years ago you could buy 6 or 7 different frequencies. At the time i only bought 3 and soon afterward i wanted the other frequencies but could not find them anymore. Are they still available.?

Peace of mind
It's a pretty good alert system. I've had others like this, but this one is more stylish and modern looking. But my biggest problem with it that the batteries has to be replaced a bit too often, because the light stays on for nearly three to five minutes after the alarm stops. I fixed the LOUDNESS by covering the speaker with a little masking tape
on the back. Over all, I'm glad I have it. I'm getting the Garage Parking Sensor next.

I love it!
Works exactly as stated. Yes the alarm is loud - I covered it with electrical tape and that helped. It has alerted us to the two times a prowler has been in our yard.

Has Issues...
As the other reviewers have mentioned this unit is far too loud. I mean it's put it in the refrigerator loud. It's so loud that I taped over the speaker on the back of the base and it's still obnoxious. The base has many alternate ring tones. Unfortunately, the manual doesn't describe how to set them to a sensor. No matter what the sensor defaults back to a LOUD klaxon sound. I'd look elsewhere for a motion alert.

Reply from Swann: Hi Paul, thanks for your feedback. We've updated our product description with more information to help you out. If I may suggest you try linking your alert to channel 3 on the receiver, which has a more subtle sound.

Alert is like a burglar alarm , instead of normal chime alert.
The product description is misleading . Driveway alert ? The alert is like a burglar alarm. I am very disappointed in the description.

drivewas alarm, nice.
easy to set up to work but too loud and can't change the alarm sounds. Only has one and can't change it. Reset and all still doesn't work. It does let me know when something comes up the drive was and the distance is well within my needs of at least 200 feet. Better instruction on setting alarms sounds would be nice.

If you can't hear this is for you
The 3 stars are generous. If it's made for people with poor hearing then ok. Its ridiculously loud on the lowest setting. My tone doesn't seem to want to change either which makes it stuck on the car alarm. How about a simple beep?

Love the chime choices
Would like instructions on paperwork on how to select chime. These seem to be missing.

Works great, too loud.
I have to ecco others it is extremely loud, and the alarm is only beeping. Would be great to be able to use the door bell sound. Easy installation and works great. Only complaint is the alarm sound and how loud it is.

undefinable
Works well over distance but the alarm is way to loud, the 3 settings would still wake the dead. Should be able to select one of the door bell settings as the alarm.

Great product
I have been looking for a wireless driveway alarm for awhile now. We live in the country back off of main road. Our home sits back in woods. Lots of times ive been working in my shop and missed people because they cant get a answer knocking on door. This little alarm will now tell me someone is arriving before they arive! I also work weekends 12-13hr days. I feel safer knowing my family has fair warning of anything or anybody entering our property. Thanks Swanns,

Top Quality, Top Performance, New Lifetime Customer
Quality, well built, easy to use and reliable product! Cant wait to get a proper alarm system from Swann when I have the cash. I needed peace of mind from a psychotic ex roommate immediately and found this exact product at Lowes. The alarm, is extremely loud and can buy you precious seconds to call 911 and prepare to defend yourself and your family i.e. Unlock your gun, grab your bat, whatever and hole up until cops arrive. Thanks guys for making a solid garage entry motion detection "chime" with the genius idea of throwing in a very loud alarm that would send anybody running. And the great video surveillance stickers you sent are fantastic. I mean, a garage alarm that I was forced to improvise with to protect my girlfriend, did and continues to make me feel safe in my home when we are most vulnerable. Like sleeping, showering, etc. A+++ product. Push the button its set. Push the button its off. So well designed. Has an array of business chimes, doorbells and others. This really isn't an alarm. Its a very loud motion detector which is super accurate by the way, that simply buys me seconds if I needed it God forbid. A 2 yr old can set this up, the design is slick and quality built and it works perfectly. For $25 you get every cents worth. Far too many products don't do the job on the cheap. Kudos Swann!

Can't change the alarm tone
Cant change alarm tone on the alert function. It has all these different tones available, but no way to change the tone from the high pitched alarm.

Reply from Swann: Hi, thanks for providing some feedback. You are able to select different channels on the receiver, take the batteries out and pop them back in again. Tip: The Alert Sensor comes paired out of the box to sensor channel 1 on the Indoor Alarm Receiver. You can easily pair the Alert Sensor to a different channel at any time. Sensor channels 1 and 2 produce blaring siren-like sounds while sensor channel 3 produces a gentle chime-like sound. Flip to page 11 of the product manual (available in the downloads tab) for full instructions.
