CARSPOT DK4P Long Range Vehicle Sensing Driveway Alarm with Email and Text Alerts
Long Range Driveway Alarm Sends Text or Email Messages When Activated
CARSPOT-DK4P is a long range wireless driveway alarm system that uses a magnetic vehicle probe to accurately detect vehicles while ignoring people or animals. The probe is mounted underneath or alongside the driveway. The probe connects to a battery powered transmitter. The wireless receiver/chime provides local on-site notifications of moving vehicles. The probe transmitter can be placed up to 1 mile* from the receiver.
In addition it includes a WiFi interface that will send email or text notifications when triggered by the driveway alert.
CARSPOT is perfect for property owners and businesses such as greenhouse operations, farms, gas stations or large facilities where employees or owners need to know when a vehicle enters the driveway, filling station, yard or protected area.
When the probe senses a vehicle, it sends a wireless signal to the receiver which is placed in the home or office. The receiver will light up the built-in LED indicator and make an alert sound.
The included SWITCHSPOT WiFi adapter connects to the driveway alarm system wireless receiver, and your WiFi network. When the driveway alarm is triggered, the SWITCHSPOT communicates using the free SpotProtect Cloud service to send an email and/or text alert message!
* Inital setup requires a Windows PC/Laptop and is not compatible with macOS.
Users can also log in and view activation history as well as to make changes the message/recipients. The Spotprotect cloud service is free for one user ((1) email and (1) text ) with an optional upgraded version SP-1Y and SP-1Y-12 available.
*Note: Motion sensor will also detect large animals. Wireless range is open air, line of sight with no interference or obstructions. Interference and obstructions like walls or trees will reduce range. Wireless signals cannot pass through metal walls or metal structures.
