Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jack27 short Cable - odd tone
So far it seems to work ok - but as mentioned in other reviews, the cable is WAY to short. If you are comfortable splicing you can use cat5 to extend it to the length you need - we used direct burial cat5 (gel filled) and telephone button splices (also gel filled) to add 15' to the line. Most installations don't require that much, but you'll find you wish you had at least 3-4 more feet. Cable does have a standard USB plug on the end, but keep in mind, USB is not water tight, so you cannot just add an extension and bury the connector without some creative thinking.
The tone is just plan odd. It's defiantly not a "happy" tone, and it's not a chime other - honestly I would have given this 5 stars if I could change the tone - as the splicing Idid above was not an issue for me.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Santa Wireless Driveway Alarm! Love it!
This was so easy to install! Works perfect. Wished I would have bought one of these years ago. I highly recommend this alarm.

I bought one last week I installed it and at first it wasn't working and constantly going off every two seconds. Then I whipped out the manual after I tried a few other things on my own witch didn't work.
First off my driveway is a eighth of a mile long but I wasn't placing it at then end just down from the house to where I was comfortable putting it. Well I seen it had the range on 400ft. depending on obstacles in the line of sight. So I went and measured and I was at 1,200ft. Way over the limit. So I measured to the 400ft then back10ft and placed it so I'm at 390ft. That's going thru two walls and some trees. From then on it has been working great and I have had no problems. Very easy to setup and to get going.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bob M Very weak transmitter
The first one I had sent all kinds of false alarms and many times I had people show up at my door, and there was their car in my driveway, but no alert!
The replaced it so now this detects and alerts about 1 out of four times. And I have done everything to a "T". The ONLY time it worked like it was supposed to I had to take the receiver outside and plug it in.

yes easy to install but it said it had a 400 ft range if I move it more than 200 ft it did not work so pay more and get something that works.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Degan Works pretty well
My Mighty Mule has been installed for a couple of months now and is performing its job very well. The only difficulty I've experienced is not being able to hear the receiver if I don't happen to be close by when the alert tone sounds. The tone is fine if you happen to be in the same or adjacent room with the receiver, but otherwise, you still won't know if a vehicle is approaching. It would be very helpful to have multiple receivers and/or other options (perhaps WiFi) for communicating the alarm to other areas. Amazon lists extra receivers for $50, which seems high since I only paid $60 for the complete kit. I might do better to install a second alarm and use the same pin settings on both.

easy to install, takes a few minutes with a shovel. not sure how long the AAA batteries will last. No false alarms, will pick up riding mower to large delivery truck. easily turned on/off whenever necessary. inside house.
Follow directions.. TEST BEFORE YOU BURY UNIT.. am in the country so no danger of picking up neighbors and am way off highway. You can turn up/down sensitivity (outside sending unit) and volume up/down from receiver inside house .
So far great investment.
This is much better than the infrared sensors, had nothing but trouble with those.
