Cartell Works with Short Driveways, Too!

Cartell driveway alarms is pleased to introduce its patented* short driveway dual-probe system

Cartell makes a driveway alarm system thatsd-6-drive makes homeowners aware every time a vehicle enters their driveway. Under normal circumstances, the sensor probe that detects the vehicle is buried beside and at the end of the driveway at least thirty-five to fifty feet away from cross traffic. If cross traffic is closer than this, Cartell will false alarm. This requires the driveway be at least seventy-five feet in length.

But now available is a dual probe system that only senses vehicles that turn into the driveway. Cartell’s sensing device can now be just fifteen feet away from cross traffic with virtually no false alarms. This means homes on small lots and with shorter driveways may now use Cartell.

The dual probe system (called DriveGuard S.D.) can be used with both of Cartell’s control units to offer a stand-alone system that will turn on lights, trip sounders, trigger cameras (and more) any time a vehicle enters the driveway. This means the home owner will be aware of all drive-up visitors before they reach the house or get out of their car; and when the house is vacant at night, Cartell will make it look occupied.

Cartell’s short driveway system also integrates seamlessly with any home automation, security and lighting system. With Cartell, a person does not have to wait to enter his home to enjoy security and automation. Such systems will be employed as soon as a vehicle enters the driveway. And now, all the benefits of a professional driveway alert system are available for short driveways with Cartell’s DriveGuard S.D. dual-probe system.
