Our Top 3 Magnetic Driveway Alarms
Magnetic driveway alarm systems are the ideal choice when you want to detect just
automobiles. These models will not detect humans or animals like some others do, but vehicle detection is highly desired, especially in a commercial setting where false alarms will cost a business money.
When installed in the right area, these alarms are the best for vehicle detection. We have numerous models in stock to choose from, and our top 3 picks are listed below.
1. MURS Wireless Probe
One of the best in the world. The MURS wireless probe features a great coverage range and easy installation. This model is so well-liked because it does not provide false signals unless installed in an area where other metal objects are moving.
MURS has the following features:
- Zones: Expand your monitoring up to 4 zones for complete coverage.
- Range: A range of 2 miles.
- Alert: Voice recordings can be activated.
- Accessories: Relay outputs allow for accessories to be added to the unit.
- Cable Length: 50 feet
The burial cable must be put into the ground, and the ideal height of the transmitter will be 4 feet for best results.
