Know before they come to door…

Driveway Alarms are quite popular and let you know when someone has pulled up with a wireless alarm that emits a noise, shines a light or can alert you with a silent alarm. This is done with an infrared beam and because it is portable it can be placed anywhere you like besides the driveway. At a gate, Front Door or backdoor, its your call.

Speaking of Front and Back Doors…
