On Wireless Distance:The maximum distance of this system has been tested in an open field with no obstructions. Any obstruction in direct line-of-sight range will degrade the reliability and range of the wireless signal.
THE RECEIVER APPEARS TO BE PORTABLE BUT THE SPECS REQUIRE THAT IT BE PLUGGED INTO A 120V RECEPTICAL THAT WOULD NEGATE PORTABILITY. MUST THE RECEIVER BE PLUGGED IN? CAN THE SYSTEM BE DISABLED AT THE RECEIVER FOR THOSE TIMES THAT THE PROPERTY IS PHYSICALLY SECURE? WILL THE SYSTEM SUPPORT MORE THAN ONE RECEIVER?
The receiver does need to be plugged in. The receiver can be turned off when you do not want to receive alerts. The system does support multiple units, but we do not sell the units for this brand individually. You can purchase them through the manufacturer, STI.
In the description of the STI SOLAR POWERED METAL DETECTING DRIVEWAY ALARM, it states: "Light flashes on sensor when triggered, continues to flash until turned off". Does that mean that every time I drive into my parking lot I have to go turn off the sensor light?
The light on the sensor will flash, but it is turned off from the receiver inside.
How close to the pavement does the buried pipe need to be? I'm concerned about the snowplow hitting it in the winter time.
The sensor on this system has a 12 ft detection radius. As long as the passing vehicle is within 12 feet of the sensor, it will be picked up.
