(SC July-Aug ?5) Provides an audible and visual alert when a vehicle is detected in your driveway. It features an output to activate a mains switch to turn on lighting for a preset time. Uses magnetic field detection for reduced false triggers that are typical of ultrasonic systems. It can even detect vehicle direction and will play a different sound for arrivals and departures. Can also be used on farms for gate access monitoring. Outdoor unit is powered by a single AA battery. If the outdoor uni t is housed in a weatherproof box and is fitted with an AA NiMH rechargeable cell, a small solar panel (typically found in cheap garden lights) can be connected to power the unit from the sun. Indoor unit is powered by 12V DC plugpack (included).
