Try turning down the sensitivity - it's located on the transmitter. Also, make sure you have a good battery.

We had an issue with it going off at 5 am. Turns out our neighbor liked ours so much he installed one as well and we were being chimed when he left for work. We changed our dips switches to another setting and it solved the issue

Answer: 
This might be a stupid question, but did you change the batteries in the transmitter? Also, has the ground been disturbed around where you buried the sensor recently due to heavy rain or landscaping?

Answer: 
After I installed mine it would go off a lot with out a car passing over it. I adjusted the sensor down a little and it has worked great ever since. I don't get any false alarms anymore. You might want to change the battery too. I'm sure the stock battery that is sent may not be the best on the market. Good Luck!

Answer: 
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,

Answer: 
Hello Ah,
Thank you for posting your question. You do not need internet for this item to work. The electromagnetic sensor detects vehicles in motion and sends a signal to the indoor
receiver. The indoor receiver will chime when it receives the signal, letting you know someone has just come on your property.

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 239 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. September 27, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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 1.0 out of 5.0 by Waste of money Worked for about twelve and one-half months and started not working after the warrantywas up. August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This is one of the best 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. July 18, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 31, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by no not buy 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. August 5, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great gate alarm The alarm was easy to install, works like I expected. It detects large metal objects like cars and does not respond to things like animals, birds or blowing leaves. I purchased this one as a replacement for one we've been using for three years. The transmitter stopped working. Possibly due to the excessive rain we've been experiencing. We used the full extender poles provided with it this time to lift it higher off the ground. October 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great, long range, long battery life I bought this a year ago and immediately installed it. Using the manufacturer's specs, I wasn't hopeful that it would work near the end of our drive -- about 350 feet but direct line of sight. I installed the sensor very shallow, about 2-3" deep right next to the driveway. I zip tied the transmitter to a shrub as high as possible. I am on the original set of batteries (Duracell) and it has been working very well. It has not gone off maybe once or twice. We live on the end of a cul-de-sac and if someone swings wide close to our driveway when turning around, we sometimes get an alert. My wife was very skeptical at first but now she loves it. Very happy with it. Now I am about to hack into it and run the beeper leads to a Wemo Maker so we can automate it. Should be a fun experiment with home automation. September 9, 2016
