The Hosmart Solar Wireless Driveway Alert Sensor Complete Review and Recommendation
In today’s review, we’re looking at the Hosmart wireless solar motion alert sensor, sometimes referred to as a driveway alert sensor. This is probably the best driveway alarm for detecting any pedestrians, vehicles or animals approaching your property.
It gives you an alarm sound when the person or object is on your property within a defined radius of 30 feet away from the sensor. One of the most common uses we have seen with this sensor is that of using it at night to protect cars. However you’re not limited to this as you can use it to protect your home, work site, or business premises.
So if you’re looking for a day or night time motion sensor that sends an alert when something is approaching and within the range, we recommend you spare a couple of minutes to read this review or watch the video embed and get informed. If you have any questions, please use the comment form and we’ll get back to you within 72 hours. Thank you.
It usually comes with 4 sensors, with the base, in a box for the price listed. However, you can order just one sensor and the base.
You also get the Hosmart driveway alarm user manual and I must mention they have a 90 day money back guarantee and also a 3 year warranty on the product so really good.
Lastly you get the receiver which has four numbered channels ready to connected with the each of the sensors. On the bottom of the base you have the power button and also the volume adjustments.
Setting Up the Hosmart Driveway Alert Sensor Unit
Setup is very easy. The sensors obviously have to he stationed outside of the your home or premises where you want the detection. It can detect motion from 30 feet away from where it’s positioned, and can be positioned up to 1500 feet from the receiver for all weather conditions. I have not tested it this is true for walls. The receiver can be hanged on a wall inside your home or positioned at any place convenient for you.
The video below demonstrates the set up process rather well.
Here is a summary of the steps involved if you’re not able to watch the video now.
Step 1: Charge your sensor battery
When the product arrives, the battery is probably discharged and you will need to charge it before setting the Hosmart solar driveway alarm up, for about 6-10 hours. Connect the USB power cable to source at home. On the bottom of the PIR unit, lift the rubber and connect the charger cable to the sensor. Charge for 6-10 hours. Once the unit is plugged in, a blue light comes on and stays on till the battery is completely charged.
Step 2: The back of the sensor is not screwed in because you have to connect the lithium ion battery first. First thing you need to do is to connect the lithium ion is to plug it in. Keep the wires away from the screw holes by keeping the wires straight. Set the detection range and the sensor selector.
Step 3:Test the sound for the different sensor channels and select which sound suits you best. you have the two wall paneled sides you want to put that on the side of the battery just clip it in right there now they give you screws so they give you four long screws and four short tiny screws.
Step 4: Screw the back on to the sensor and put on the back swivel mount. The swivel mount allows you tilt the sensor up and down or sideways to focus on a different direction as needed.
Step 5: Cover the sensor with the rain/weather protection. The swivel mount can then be mounted where you want it.
That’s about it for the setup of the Hosmart rechargeable driveway alarm.
Now if you’re in a well-lit area you can use the solar panel on top to maintain the connection. However if it’s under a cover and not getting a lot of sunlight or during winter, you can use the included AC Adapter and USB charger to ensure power supply to the sensor is good. However the full battery’s drained within a week so it’s better to actually have it plugged in. How long does the lithium ion battery last? It’s good for about 1 week in my experience. So if it’s possible, have the receiver unit always plugged in.
