The Driveway Patrol Provides a Visual Alert of Visitors
That's why I was excited to see this post on Unplggd about the "Driveway Patrol," which consists of a sensor placed at the end of your driveway - on a post like your mailbox - and a portable receiver inside which chimes and visually alerts you when someone passes the sensor. So, it would alert you to package deliveries, the mail delivery, surprise visitors, maintenance people, and anyone else entering your driveway. It has a 400 foot range, so depending on the size of your house you can even go into the backyard with it.
The best thing about it? The device is only $20 from Solutions, plus the cost of batteries. This (or a similar product) is one of those things I'll definitely add to the shopping list when we get a place of our own again.
