We spent 27 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top choices for this wiki. There are few things more annoying than getting surprised by a visitor when you're in the middle of something important. These driveway alarms can provide you with at least a little heads-up when company arrives, as you can set the sensors at the edge of your property to alert you when anyone pulls in. They're fantastic for spotting intruders, too, whether they creep up on four wheels or two legs. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work.

Editor's Notes

December 28, 2018:

Users should take into consideration the best field-of-view for their particular needs before making a purchase. A longer sensor range isn't necessarily better, as it can increase the number of alerts to the point to where they're ignored. Adjustable sensitivity is also important, as any system will likely require some fine-tuning to perform at its best.

After getting his bachelor’s from the University of Texas, Quincy Miller moved out to Los Angeles, where he soon found work as a copywriter and researcher, specializing in health and wellness topics for a major online media brand. Quincy is also knowledgeable about home improvement, as he’s had extensive experience with everything from insulation to power tools to emergency room trips, sometimes in that order. Sharing a home with three dogs and a couple of cats has forced Quincy to learn as much as he can about pet supplies, animal nutrition and, most importantly, the best ways to tackle the mountains of fur that accumulate in every corner of your home.
