It’s an Unfortunate Fact: Home invasions are on the increase.
The Ultra-Safe wireless driveway alarm will alert you as soon as an intruder sets foot on your property, not when he’s INSIDE your home like traditional alarm systems
The Ultra-Safe is a stand-alone, wireless Do-It-Yourself early warning perimeter alarm system.
It uses one or more battery-powered Outdoor Detectors and a portable Base Station that is located inside your home. The base station sounds an alert tone if an intruder is detected outside.
If an intruder approaches your property, the Outdoor Detector sends a message to the Base Station. The Base Station sounds an alert tone that provides you with an early warning that an intruder is on your property.
Unlike older technology outdoor sensors, the Ultra-Safe will not false alarm due to animals, wind, and leaves (provided the simple installation guidelines are followed) so you can sleep safe and sound knowing that you’ll only be alerted if an intruder is approaching
It’s very good.
You have taken away the intruder’s best weapon….
…..the element of SURPRISE!
You know he’s on your property
You know where he is – the Base Station can play a different alert tone for each outdoor detector
And he is still outside!
Awake, alert and able to assess the danger and make an appropriate response.
Consider the alternative…..
The intruder approaches your home.
He forces a window and stealthily makes his way inside trying to make as little noise as possible.
Maybe he opens a squeaky door or bumps into a chair…would you wake up?
Even if you were to wake up, then what? Do you get up and grab a weapon to investigate?
No matter what happens next, the fact is you only became aware of the intruder…
…. after he had entered your home!
It’s a frightening prospect, but one that’s happening more frequently.
Even if you have an alarm system it won’t trigger until the intruder is INSIDE YOUR HOME!
The intruder has the advantage!
The driveway alarm’s Base Station will alert you if someone is prowling around outside. Low cost and effective way to protect way to protect:
The Ultra-Safe Wireless Alarm is simple to install. It comes with a detailed instruction manual in plain English.

" I now sleep better at night knowing that I have my bedroom windows monitored at night. As a bonus it also lets me know when visitors arrive at my front door
The Outdoor Sensor can detect an intruder 15 metres away. The wireless range between the outdoor sensor and the base station is 150 metres (line of site).
A system with 1 x Base Station and 1 x Outdoor sensor can be installed and set up in about 15 minutes.
Allow 10-15 minutes for each additional Outdoor Sensor.
The system comes with a user manual so set up is simple. And you can always send us an email if you have any questions regarding set up.
The Outdoor Sensor runs for around 2 years on 4 x ‘AA’ batteries.
The batteries are included.
The Base Station plugs into any standard power point.
It can also run from 4 x ‘AAA’ batteries if required, so it can be completely portable.
These batteries are not included.
A screwdriver is needed to screw the Outdoor Sensor to a tree, post or wherever you choose to mount it.
You may need an electric drill and a small (3mm) drill-bit if you’ll be screwing into hardwood or similar.
You’ll need a hammer drill if you want to mount the sensor on a brick or concrete wall.
The Base Station has 2 outputs:
1 – a change-over relay with dry contacts
2 – an output that switches to 12 volts DC when activated.
These outputs can be used to connect to lights, cameras, sirens, etc.
An electrician should be used to connect any device that runs from 240 volts AC.
Other components, such as a heavy duty relay may be required to switch devices that draw more current than permitted by the outputs on the Base Station.
Maximum current available from 12 volt relay: 200 mA
Maximum current that the relay can switch: 300mA
An auxiliary power supply may be needed to run some devices that you wish to use.
Please request the Application Notes PDF that shows various examples for connecting devices to the Base Station
Talk to any home security company and ask them to tell you about their perimeter security products.
You’ll probably be offered a range of different sensors including:
That’s been the approach to perimeter alarms for homes from as far back as 1981 when I started as an apprentice with Guardmaster in Nunawading. (Other, expensive options have always been around for large outdoor areas for high-risk properties such as defense sites and warehouses filled with tobacco products or expensive alcohol products etc. This article deals specifically with home security)
And up until recently, they are the same detection devices I was offering our customers if they wanted perimeter protection.
It seemed to be an effective solution.
You could arm the system at night, go to bed and have peace of mind that if someone tried to get into your home, you’d be alerted by the alarm and the intruder would run off.
With traditional perimeter alarm systems…
Why? Let have a quick look at how these detection devices work
1 – The Reed Switch detects the opening of a door or window, therefore the alarm isn’t triggered until the door or window is open
2 – Glass breakage detector. It ‘listens’ for the sound of breaking glass, therefore the alarm is not triggered until the window is already broken!
3 – Vibration sensors detect the vibration caused by brute force when a window or door is kicked in.
It really is a false sense of security.
Lets return to our break-in scenario …
Now, because a window or door has been opened, or smashed the alarm sirens are sounding (inside and outside) waking you from a deep sleep.
What would your response be in that situation?
You’ve just been jolted awake by a 110 decibel siren at 3am!
Would you race out to the codepad and turn the alarm off because you don’t want to upset the neighbours?
Would you grab a weapon and walk through the house looking for an intruder?
Or perhaps you’d call the police.
The best you could hope for is that the intruder is driven away by the unwanted noise and the attention it will bring.
But fortunately, there is a better way
Early Warning Perimeter Alarm
If someone is prowling around outside home or trying to break into your car, an early warning system offers the best defense.
When an intruder is detected you are woken by a low-level, adjustable alert tone by not ear-piercing alert tone long before the intruder is at the vulnerable doors and windows of your home.
Now you’ve got options.
You can turn on your lights, activate the panic alarm on your home alarm system, call a friend, neighbour or police.
The key difference is that now you have a degree of control – you won’t be taken by surprise.
That’s real peace-of- mind.
The best alarm systems for residences are designed for perimeter protection; to prevent the intruder from entering the premises.
Systems that rely on interior protection alone present two potential problems. First, they allow the criminal to enter the home before the alarm is sounded. When there are occupants in the home, the danger is obvious. Secondly, due to the nature of the component parts of these systems, they cannot be used without limiting normal family activity within the home.
Most important, however, is the simple fact that perimeter protection emphasizes personal safety, while interior protection primarily protects property.
From a practical standpoint, however, probably the greatest degree of protection is afforded by a system that combines perimeter protection with one or more interior “sensors” that can be turned on or off independently of the perimeter devices.
Since no system is fool-proof, this procedure provides “backup” protection in the event an intruder succeeds in violating the perimeter.
In addition, it makes practical the design of a “limited” perimeter system – one that protects the most vulnerable accesses but not every means of entry through the perimeter.
Care should be exercised in such situations to utilize devices that practical in terms of freedom from accidental activation and which blend with the family’s life style
