Cartell driveway alarms and gate openers expanding internationally
By Anthony Capkun
September 10, 2013 – Preferred Technologies Group, a U.S.-based company and manufacturer of Cartell driveway alarms and gate openers, says it is now accepting distributorships around the world to sell its products.
The Cartell line of products has been manufactured in the States since 1975 and sold exclusively through distributors. Initially introduced in the security industry, it has since been sold in the home automation, electrical, lighting and other distributorships.
Cartell alarms detect vehicles as they enter the driveway; homeowners are alerted to approaching vehicles when Cartell turns on lights, cameras and/or audible devices. There are five driveway alarm systems available, including stand-alone systems or those that integrate with any security, home automation or lighting system.
All systems are based on magnetometer technology; only vehicles are detected, eliminating false alarms caused by animals, wind, blowing leaves, etc. The sensor is buried beside the driveway, hidden and vandal-proof. All Cartell gate openers are universal voltage (vAC or vDC), accepting any 12V power supply from any electrical source.
