    vehicle sensor

    We have a remote property that is accessed by a track that we dont share with others. I am looking for a very basic vehicle sensor that will a) let me know when a car/ van etc is on its way up the track by sounding an alarm/ bell and b) trigger a stills camera to record the vehicle.

    My motivation is partly to increase security (like everywhere there has been a markled increase in things going walkies off of farms) and partly s simple thing to give me a bit of warning when someone is coming to visit - we can only see the end of the track from the buildings.

    Any ideas?

    I thought of those strip things that sense the pressure of wheels going over them that the coucils use fir counting vehicles etc but I thought that there might be a smarter method.

    Cheers

    We have movement sensors in our yard and these trigger a pre recorded message informing third parties that they have entered an unauthorised area and the police have been called. there are motion detection cameras inside buildings and these set a siren off outside and also call us and/or direct to police control. Very expensive set up though and lots of cabling but not had a break in since (touch wood)

    Would the above do?
    How far away from the track are you. You say "remote"

    We use one of these - only picks up metal - so not set off by animals or wind blowing trees etc.

    Not sure if you could set it up to work a camera though.

    Give them a ring - very helpful people - we have our driveway and all our buildings alarmed up using a variety of their products all linked up to work together.

    That looks exactly what I was looking for. Ill give them a ring. We are about 300m up the track (by the crow flies rather than the distance on the track which is more like 450m) so this is well within range. The only issue is there are a lot of trees that arent so good for radio signals.

    You've probably already spoken to them by now, but, we found the best thing to do was to set the receiver up in the house, then go down the lane with the sensor - keep testing it to see how you go whilst still receiving the signal.
    Then mount it permanently on a post or something behind the hedge.
    Nothing worse than mounting it first to find it's out of range!:lolk:

    Have lots of interesting items, the range may be an issue in this instance though.
