Answer: 
No, it does not. The transmitter works up to 400 ft. away from the receiver. It senses magnetic disturbances & does not need to be in a line of sight with the receiver.

Answer: 
I'd say no, because it works upstairs in a back bedroom where there is no line of sight from one to the other. Hope that helps. My transmitter is in a bush, which has been cut back. This summer I am going to find out if it needs to be trimmed down again or if the bush doesn't affect it.

Answer: 
no , very easy to install. Just bury the small probe and line under the ground next to your driveway so you don`t hit it with your mower. Plug in the control box in at your house and your ready to go.

Pdgreer,
The Mighty Mule Wireless Driveway Alarm does not offer the feature you are referring to. You could simply unplug the indoor base station before you left your property, so the alarm would not go off. Thank you,

Customer Reviews

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 214 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Driveway Alarm This unit is very limited in range. 400 feet doesn't mean much if you have to have a clear unobstructed view. By the time a car triggers the unit it can already be heard and seen coming up the driveway. May be useful in some situation. Save your money and buy a similar unit on line that has a half mile range. Works much better. The price is more, but less expensive than buy one that doesn't work well and then buying the other one. The unit does not have additional outputs for a relay or additional alerts. July 12, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Returned it Returned after 2 weeks. Have a long treed driveway and the receiver must be in view of sensor.. It worked great for two days then it stopped working July 24, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Driveway alarm Does not work... all the fixes recommended do not work. It just alarms for no reason. Would not recommend to buy July 5, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good item. Working well so far, wish the cord was longer. Tone is loud enough to hear well. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by one of my best purchases ever this product is really good. if this one ever quits, i will immediately purchase another one... follow the directions to install and it works like you want it to.... June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Effective Driveway Alarm When you live back in the woods, it can be scary to hear a surprise knock at your door when you are not expecting company. Now that I have this driveway alarm, I can be alerted when they pull up and be ready for them before they even get to the door which is awesome! The sensor it about 150ft. away from the house and has worked 100% of the time (that I know of) with no false positives. The only thing that I would recommend changing about this product is that the alarm is not a pleasant sound. It sounds a bit like a smoke alarm and would be nice if there was a setting for a nice chime similar to a door bell. May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Alert We live in the countryside with a 400'+ long driveway. The house is situated such that the most used rooms do not have a good view of the driveway. The sensor is placed more than 150 feet from the house. The sensor picks up entry of any vehicle. It gives us an audible alert that can be heard anywhere on the main floor of the house. It gives us a sense of security and warning of someone entering the property. We hid the transmitter in bushes, so it is not visible, even if anyone would know what it was. November 7, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works well enough Works almost all of the time. My sensor is about 200ft from the receiver and it senses vehicles about 90% of the time. There are a couple of walls in the way. If there was a direct line of sight I would expect it to work all the time. The volume for the chime can get pretty loud, so we can hear it throughout the entire house when someone arrives. I'm glad to have found a magnetic sensor as opposed to a motion sensor since all I care about is knowing when vehicles arrive and leave through my driveway. June 1, 2016
