    A extra cheap but effective home security device for you guys..

    Amazon.com: Driveway Patrol Sensor and Receiver Kit: Patio, Lawn & Garden

    I have been using this one for about a year now and it's very nice. Works up to 400ft according to product description, but i haven tested that out. I use this mainly for my garage where my motorcycle is located. Motion sensor mounted on wall and receiver in my bedroom. Really works. Will pick up even critters moving and maybe high wind so i don't recommend it for outside. When put on "loud", it is loud enough to even wake up a deep sleeper.

    Personally I prefer claymore mines with tripwire. Easy and effective. Thanks to surplus military outlet stores in my neighborhood and what I brought back from overseas. Most effective home security to my thinking. I can sleep and still dispatch would be intruders. No warning needed. Most days I don't even need an alarm clock....I just wake up whenever. Taking care of business without getting out of bed is definitely a good thing. Sensors are for sissies. No sense playing games or warning intruders. Do it and be done with it before it can happen. Just remember the postman.

    My dogs don't require batteries and don't give false alarms

    Your dogs must be well-trained. I know of a lot of dogs that either sleep through the arrival of guests, or bark when nothing is there.

    If you're a DIY'er, just wire up the light circuit on a motion sensing security light to a cheapo doorbell. DING DONG, you're in my garage.

    I live a long way from anyone so they only bark at two things 1: Coyotes on the deck eating their food 2: Strangers

    They haven't been wrong yet

    I have 2 G.Shepherds(Jagger&Vltor) that have no other purpose but to protect my property,wife and kids when I'm gone,whether it be from 4 or 2 legged threats. They are more loyal to us than anything that could be used to replace them.They know their job and do it well.And they are so protective that we have a C.B.Y.C(call before you come) rule.They are a big help with unwanted guest.

    +1. No one gets by my dog with the exception of my immediate nearest neighbor and that is by design.

    I have one and it works well enough. I also have a German Shepard , but layered protection is never a bad idea.

    They sell them at Harbor Freight,I have one mounted on a tree near the street facing back towards my house high enough it doesn't pick up small critters,but anything over 3 ft tall is gonna set it off,anything moves between it and the house and I get a beep and it's time to arm up and peek out the peeky hole in the door
