The sensor must be placed around 1500 ft from the base unit. The main thing is that, between the sensor and receiver make sure there is no electromagnetic or any metal interference. It will affect effective working distance of the driveway alarm and it will be shortened. And the sensor is ideal to use in extreme weather conditions and it has excellent waterproof property. And coming to the charging option, it can be charged by solar energy as well as by battery. It is recommended to be mounted on fuller sun light condition.

Make sure do not place the sensor to straight sunlight, the excess amount of heat from the straight sunlight causes false alarm. For better detection have to set the sensor 4.5-6ft above the ground. If it’s not charged properly, we have to check the battery whether it is defective and have to replace with new one. This is one of the best driveway alarms in the market right now.
