Driveway sensor system sends pictures to your phone & email without setting off alarmpublished in Totally Wired winter 2009-2010 edition
When Atronic Alarms’ Operation Manager Todd Harrison learned about recent vandalism near his alpaca ranch in Blue Springs, his mind really kicked into overdrive.
“I was concerned about some equipment I had recently purchased and for the well being of my animals,” Todd said.
So he talked with a security manufacturer and sent Curtis Mayes, commercial installation supervisor, and Steve Kort, technical programmer, on a mission.
“I had the idea and the equipment,” Todd said, “Steve and Curtis got it to work. I knew if we could pull this off, Atronic Alarms would be one of the first security companies in the area to offer this type of system.”
“The Design for each job should be well thought out.
The placement of the motion detector and the camera
in relation to each other must be precise. ”

Harrison explained that the driveway sensor system sends a text and an email message telling you something crossed into your driveway, and then sends photos of the event.
“You can also go online and see the nine-second video if you want,” he said.
The catch? It is still a part of your security system, but it does not contact the monitoring station.
“I also have a chime that goes off in my house when I am home to alert me to activity in the driveway,” Todd said. “It works exactly how we envisioned.”
