    Swann SWHOM-DRIVEA-GL reviews

    Driveway Alert Alarm is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works Within Limits This product brings to mind the old saying that you get what you pay for. It works but only if it is positioned correctly because the sensor effective field of vision is limited. I'm using mine inside my garage to let me know if there is any movement. What I found it that placement and angle of the remote sensor is critical: the sensor sees out horizontally pretty well but it has a significant blind spot when looking down. I first mounted the sensor seven feet up on a wall and I could walk around 20' away and it would trigger reliably. But if I walked back and forth while close to the sensor (six feet or less from the wall) it wouldn't see me. I finally lowered the sensor to about a four foot height so it looks across the garage more horizontally. If you want to mount it high, it needs to be angled down at the target area instead of looking out horizontally. My sensor is mounted inside so moisture isn't an issue. However, I have read reviews elsewhere that indicate that the manufacturer's water resistant claim is questionable. Food for thought.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SWANN DRIVE WAY ALERT The Swann Drive way alert system I purchased is actually being used as a Warning alert for my Walk way up to my front door. The Main Control Box is placed in the center of my home as the Motion Sensor is in Bushes outside about 45ft. away. This System has Worked Perfectly for My Needs. The Chime has two setting loud and louder but it is what I want so it grabs my attention easily. I will be purchasing another Soon and Recommend this unit if Your Wondering it's Abilities. Worth the Money.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It Works - too well I am having a hard time finding a place to mount the sensor unit. It picks up every quail or dove that crosses the driveway, and also goes off every time the yard lights switch on or off. Sensitivity is more that excellent.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too sensitive to the wind. I live in a windy location and the sensors were too sensitive to the wind. There was very little vegetation in the sensing area and they were still too sensitive. One must be careful as to placement of the sensors.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good for driveways - Great for living rooms Does not work outside where I need it. Works perfect inside the house where it is cool, but I don't get many cars in my living room.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great Very sensitive, so place it carefully to avoid false alarms. But works very well.
