Resolution Products RE204 - Driveway Sensor Reviews
Submitted on 12/13/2019 Alarm Grid
The Resolution Products RE204 is a 345 MHz driveway sensor that works with Honeywell and 2GIG Systems that support wireless sensors. It is used for letting the system know when a vehicle has entered its coverage area. The device works by detecting the change in the Earth's magnetic field that occurs when a vehicle comes into a specific area. A car or truck entering the sensor's coverage area will shift the magnetic field around it and activate the sensor. We think that the sensor is perfect if you want to know when a vehicle has entered a specific area. We give the RE204 a 5 Star rating.
There are many things we like about the RE204. Its detection method means that only vehicles will set it off. You won't experience false alarms due to people or animals coming within the sensor's coverage area. This is great if you want to know specifically when a vehicle has entered the coverage area. The device is fully weatherproof, so you won't need to worry about leaving it outside. The sensor has a pretty long battery life, as it uses a single C battery that gets three (3) to five (5) years on average. The device offers three (3) different sensitivity levels, which are low, medium, and high.
There are some downsides to consider when using the RE204. For one, it is discontinued, and you can no longer purchase new models from Alarm Grid. The device should not be used within 24 feet of the street because of the possibility of false alarms caused by passing vehicles. The sensor can only be used to detect vehicles. If you want to use it to detect people or animals, then it will not work for you. However, this is a positive if you are only wanting it to detect vehicles. Overall, we really like the RE204. It gets 5 Stars from us.
Good: No False Alarms By People or Animals, Weatherproof, Long Battery Life, Three Sensitivity Settings
Bad: Should Not Be Used Within 24 Feet of the Street, Only Detects Vehicles
Bottom Line: 5 Stars
