ReviewsI put one in 11 years ago, 1000' long. Over time gophers gnawed through the cable. I replaced the cable about six years ago and this time placing in conduit. No problems since. The alarm even picks up bicycles. My house is the only one on the road, so there are no nuissance alarms.Hooks in Texas
The best alert system on the marketI have had mine for at least 10 years and no problems other than I placed the sensor too close to the road. I buried the sensor about twenty feet from the road, but it picks up heavy trucks and real fast driving cars. There is a sensitivity adjustment, but my wife prefers to check for drive by's than miss a car in the driveway. I had tried a wireless system, but it was unreliable. You will have to add a louder alarm (Radio Shack), but that is not hard. Installation is moderately challenging, and will require a trencher. I buried mine in PVC conduit even though it is direct burial cable.
