The Optex Wireless 2000 Alert Driveway Alarm System is one of the most highly rated and recommended perimeter awareness systems at HomeSecurityStore.com. An upgrade from the Wireless 1000, its covers ground on your property like no other and the long range capability from transmitter to receiver adds great convenience to your home or business monitoring.

This visitor driveway alarm's transmitter comes equipped with 2 different detection patterns. The first is a straight beam (invisible to the naked eye) that ranges up to 50 feet away from the transmitter. The second is a fan pattern that constantly scans for motion from left to right and vis versa for up to 17 feet. Both patterns are effective perimeter alerts for a home or business and add the convenience of choice to detect approaching vehicles.

There are no limits to where you can mount the transmitter (which is the size of a softball). With a 2000 foot long FR transmission range (open field/ line of sight- transmission performance ranges from 150 ft. around stucco/plaster construction and 100 ft. around reinforced construction), get alerts from virtually anywhere within your home or business. Beyond driveways, the reliability of this new wireless technology allows you to monitor shoplifting zones, dressing and fitting rooms, unauthorized exits, jewelry display boxes, drive up windows and more!

Use it as an entry or walkway chime, wireless doorbell or a warehouse delivery notification system. With 5 different sensitivity levels and 3 different chime tones you can get creative with your installation and be notified with alerts up to 80db loud.

Need to cover more than just a driveway? Up to 12 transmitters can be incorporated and if you add more, the receiver can identify which zones have been breached by certain tones.

Another advance in driveway alarm technology is the Wireless 2000's ability to trigger other security system devices. Easily programmed, the built-in weatherproof motion detector can trigger door strikes, lights, sirens and cameras. Today's technology at its best.

The Optex Wireless 2000 Alert Driveway Alarm System sets the standard for perimeter alert systems and ultimately helps turn a simple home security system into a powerhouse of capability.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. How loud is the chime?
    80 decibels, or about as loud as an alarm clock.

  2. Can you add more than 4 transmitters to 1 receiver?
    A total of 12 transmitters can be programmed in a single receiver.

  3. Where can you find a replacement power-supply for the receiver?
    The receiver uses any 9VDC adapter, which can be purchased at your local electronics supply store. Thus eliminating the need for an online order.

  4. What does the Repeater do?
    The Repeater allows the transmission range to be extended between the chime box and the transmitter. That way you can set the transmitter further away or in a place that is not within a clear line of sight, and the Repeater in-between will allow a signal to travel undisturbed. (Sold Separately)

  5. What is the handheld transmitter used for?
    The hand-held transmitter features a push-button which will send a signal to the chime-box. The handheld transmitter can be used as a location finder for the blind, or can be programmed to release door strikes or magnetic locks.
