Review: STI-34100 Solar Wireless Driveway Alarm System
Summary: The STI-34100 wireless driveway has a decent solar powered sensor that detects cars only. However, I recommend the Dakota 2500 because it has a higher quality motion sensor (accurate and no false alarms).
The Safety Technology International STI-34100 features a solar powered magnetometer sensor that will detect any moving large metallic (iron or steel) object.
The packages include 1 chime receiver, 1 receiver antenna, 1 solar powered motion sensor, mounting hardware, AC adapter and 2 AA rechargeable batteries.
How It Works
Whenever the solar powered magnetometer sensor will detect a vehicle, it will send a signal to the receiver. You will then be notified be notified by a chime and a flashing LED.
The sensor should be at least 25 feet away from roads in order to avoid false alarms
Mount the sensor in an area with partial or full sunlight
Do not install the sensor more than 3 feet away from the driveway
The STI-34100 wireless driveway alarm features a solar powered magnetometer sensor. In comparison to other alarms, the sensor does a decent job detecting cars. However, you will get false alarms every now and then. I recommend the Dakota 2500, which has a state-of-the-art motion sensor.
