Motion sensors have long been popular with conscientious renters and homeowners. When coupled with an alert system, they can help you be prepared for all sorts of expected and unexpected visitors. Here are four scenarios when the wireless plug-and-play X10 Driveway Sensor/Alert Kit could prove especially useful.
1. It Can Detect Unwelcome Trespassers and Potential Intruders
When people think of motion sensors and alarm systems, safety and security is usually the first thing that comes to mind. When a trespasser steps onto your property and you have an X10 Driveway Sensor/Alert Kit set up, you’ll immediately be made aware of their presence by the sound of a chime as soon as they get within 20 feet of the motion sensing device. You can position the sensor on your porch, your garage, or anywhere on your property where you feel you could use monitoring.
2. It Can Alert You to Kids Sneaking Out Of the House
Though security from invasion is an important reason to consider installing the X10 Sensor and Alert Kit, keeping tabs on your kids is just as crucial. The National Runaway Service posted over 33,000 crisis connections for the year 2016. Even generally responsible young people can be influenced by their peers to make unwise decisions. They may not decide to run away, but they could try to sneak out of the house late at night to go to a wild party which you wouldn’t give them permission to attend. You can plug the X10 Driveway Sensor and Alert Kit’s Remote Chime into an outlet right inside your bedroom. The minute your child gets within 20 feet of the motion sensor, you’ll be able to catch them before they have a chance to get into serious trouble.
3. It Can Help You Prepare for Company
Have you ever been surprised by a sudden ring at the front door when you weren’t expecting company? It’s not a pleasant experience, especially on those days when you haven’t had a chance to make yourself look presentable yet. The X10 Driveway Sensor/Alert Kit can help. Rather than have to holler “Just a minute!” while frantically running around the house getting ready, only to reach the door and find a vacuum cleaner salesman on the other side, you can find out who is approaching your house before they ever reach your front porch. Then you can look out the window while they’re still at a distance and decide if the potential visitor is someone you want to invite into your home or someone whose knock on the door you’d rather not answer.
4. It Can Let You Know When You’re Going to Receive Mail or Packages
It can be extremely frustrating to have a delivery person come to the door with a long-awaited, signature-requiring package only to leave your porch before you even realized they were out there. Perhaps you’re out working in the garden and couldn’t hear the doorbell. Or maybe you’re down in the basement doing laundry and may not have time to catch the delivery person. Rather than have to drop everything and make a mad dash for the door at a break-neck speed, you can give yourself a little extra time by installing this handy motion sensor and alarm kit. You can move it from room to room with you and plug it into any outlet for added convenience.
The system is incredibly easy to use. Just mount the sensor and plug in the transceiver and alarm and you’ll be all set. Thanks to the X10 Driveway Sensor and Alert Kit, there’s no need for you to be caught off guard by someone approaching or leaving your property ever again.
