This is a review of the Voice Alert System-6 Wireless Annunciator driveway alarm system. The Voice Alert System-6 Wireless Annunciator can also be used as a perimeter security defense system as well. The system sells on Amazon for around $125 dollars and ships from Amazon directly. I have a property that is surrounded by trees and is rather large. The best type of defense is to know ahead of time when someone is on your property.
You could install cameras all around on your property, but then you would need to have a system to monitor the cameras. Those systems are possible but their one limitation is nightime use. You have to have some decent cameras for that option to work. So another option is to have a permiter defense system that lets you know when someone is around. More importantly than that, you need to know what area of your property the person is on so that you can be ready.
This alarm system helps you do just that by providing an alert and a message associated with that alert so that you know what area of your property is being intruded upon. I had to do a little bit of adjusting with the sensors because I have several dogs. You can put in a small addon on the sensor which blocks out the lower portion of the sensor. Combine that with mounting the sensor high, and you should have few false alarms.
Now, when you are purchasing this, here is one thing to consider. The transmitter sensors are around $60 a piece. The alarm system includes one so you can mount that somewhere. You should have around 4 to cover the different sides of your house. That’s $240 plus the $125 cost for the base system. It’s good to consider all of those costs before your purchase the system, but it’s worth the money though.
One night I was sitting watching a baseball game and one the sensors went off indicating it was on the back area of the property. I had the dogs inside and didn’t want to let them go out by themselves until I checked things out. I got the flashlight and went outside. It was the shed area. As I was walking I heard some running through the woods. It turned out to be a couple of teenage boys who were trying to get into my shed. Thanks to the sensor, I knew they were there. That probably saved me more than the cost of the system. Who wants what is in a shed anyway. It would have been nice if the boys would have mowed my grass. All in all, this is a good system and I would definitely purchase it again.
