I had the Wireless 1000 up and running for years. When I heard that Optex came up with a next generation model, I bought it up instantly. It works just as good as the older model, but with a greater range of 2000 feet!

  • The unit is programmed with more than 8 million transmission codes, which virtually eliminates the possibility of interference.

We bought this for driveway security and it ended up catching our son trying to sneak out of the house in the middle of the night. Very easy to use and it works great.

after having this alert for a year, using two eyes for two sections, I found that the battery life is good and aside from ants making a home in one of the sensors and setting off false alarms I am well satisfied.

This system does not work after dark or when it's raining. Sent it back to be checked and was told it works properly. If so, it's of no benefit to the homeowner.

I really enjoy the security of having the Wireless 2000 alert me when there is movement in my two driveways. I have to turn it off, however, when the weather conditions are windy! It is sensitive enough to pick up blowing leaves! Wildlife can set it off, as well. I know when a squirrel, deer, or bird crosses the path of the one in the farthest driveway. I highly recommend this system!

This is my second purchase of this item. My last one lasted about 17 years and then the transmitter began to fail. After I set up the new one I set the original receiver to new one and now I have two receiver that work fine. I recommend this to anyone needing a drive up alarm. One word of caution - Don't point it toward the evening sun. TCG I did not purchase from the Home Security Store, but after looking at their price. I should have. It cost me $22.00 dollars more at SmartHome.com Look around before buying. :-)

I purchased the optex 1000 from a local security service,who installed it and used it about 1 yr. I have a long drive comming to my house and placed the alarm at various distances 150ft. to 250ft. with the same poor performance. Sometimes it works and sometimes it dosen't. Tech support didn't have a good answer why it only works part time. I then ordered a optex 2000, thinking the improved distance would work better. There is no difference between the 1000 and 2000. I watch vehicles drive by and it might work and it might not. Still searching for a driveway alarm that will work.

Couldn't be more pleased with this unit. Clear signal even over a small hill on an 800 ft driveway. Easy set-up and programming. We've bought two more.

Set this unit up about 300 feet from the house/receiver. I don't know if the aluminum siding on my house has anything to do with it, but it seemed to work at first, then stopped all together. I tried several locations within my house, and it only seemed to work at a window directly in line with the transmitter. I have tried several different driveway monitors, with little or no success so far. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a version that is 100% wired..... I don't feel like digging a trench for it, but I would if I could be assured of it's dependability. I will try the MURS version in the near future, and if it doesn't work, I'll make up my own fully wired detector with a hose-type detector or similar... it's a shame considering the cost of these systems how "twitchy" they are.

Security Advisor Comment
Aluminum siding is a factor that affects wireless coverage. Other factors that reduce range and affect coverage area include metal studs in walls and foil-backed insulation inside walls.

The Optex Wireless 2000 lives up to it's predecessor the Wireless 1000! Optex kept all the great features and expanded it's wireless range to 2000 feet. This system was super easy to setup and install, I did it in less than an hour the day I got it and haven't had to touch it since! Home Security Store sales staff was really easy to deal with.

Purchased the system and extra eye. Works but not reliable. Car can pass through with no signal. Can't use in summer as the sun apparently makes the case expand and the alarm is constant. Hasn't worked for me. Even changed eye and second one did the same thing. Can use in the winter in Oregon.

I installed the Wireless1000 in 1983 at our vacation home in Turks & Caicos Islands. Used 3 transmitters that worked flawlessly for 8 years until the lens covers broke due to intense heat and UV rays from the sun. The only downsiide for the Wireless1000 was the range. The house is all masonry per building codes in hurricane areas, so the driveway transmitter was installed at its maximum range of 100 feet with 2 concrete walls in-between. I replaced the 1000 with the 2000 series. Love it, and now I have all the transmitters and the receiver located exactly where I want them.

Installed 6 mos ago. Works fine. Only problem it is not loud enough for me. My home is large and If I am not in the same room as the reciever I cannot hear it. Had the air sensor driveway hose before and it was loud. Went wireless due to snow covered driveway.

Last night we awoke to hear this driveway alarm sounding and when we looked outside we saw men with flashlights lurking around our vehicle. We called the police and they were quickly arrested and carrying a bag of stolen items for nearby cars parked on driveways who didn't have this driveway alarm. After showing the officer the alarm sensor mounted on the garage he remarked he was going to get one for his house. This is a great alarm that works!

I used this unit on my driveway which is about 150 feet from the receiver. It worked great ...for about 30 days when the the first heavy rain storm came. The transmitter unit just quit. I expect they'll send me a new transmitter, but it's a pain to have to ship it back and wait. We'll see how well this store honors it's warrantee.
