CarSpot Optex PIR Motion Sensing Driveway Alarm with Email and Text Alert

CARSPOT combines local driveway notifications with a text message or email alert! Be alerted when visitors, customers, delivery people or intruders enter your protected area even when you're away.

CARSPOT is perfect for businesses such as greenhouse operations where employees or owners need the flexibility and mobility to be anywhere on the property (or even away from the property!) but still be notified when a customer or delivery arrives.

The PIR motion sensor will detect moving people or vehicles and sends a wireless signal to the receiver that can be up to 2000 feet (clear line of sight) back to the reciever. The receiver will play one of three alert sounds.

The system includes a WiFi adapter that connects to your WiFi network and the driveway alarm receiver. It uses the FREE SpotProtect Cloud service to send a single user (1) email and/or (1) text message when triggered*. Users can also login and view the history of triggers as well make changes to programming.
