I am looking for a driveway alarm but have no idea which one would be the best one for our situation. We live along a busy road and have determined through research that I do not want an alarm that is buried in the ground. Our house is 3/10ths of a mile from the road. I want the alarm to be at the end of the driveway near the road so I can hear the chime and have time to look out the window to see who’s coming. Can you suggest a couple models?
