Has anyone got any recommendations for a wired driveway audible alert? A friend has a large drive and wants a PIR to turn brick lights on upon vehicles coming up the drive and also an audible alert at the same time.

I doubt there is a device that does both so probably a separate PIR and then something to alert them of a vehicle coming up the drive.

Any suggestions?

You probably just need the PIR to operate a 230V doorbell as well, possibly through a time on relay so it is not ringing for 10 mins.
 
You could also fit a autodialler to send you a txt or ring his phone and set the ringtone as something else

You would have to consider small animals on the audible side, maybe limited by a timer .

There used to be a simple lighting system with just this setup, a simple slider selected what function you wanted, lights, lights and beeper etc. the PIRs were 12V. Not sure if they are still made though. The unit fitted a standard double box.

That would be ideal

I was in a house last week with that system. It’s a 4 zone fits a 2G box and each zone has ability to turn lights on and buzz inside separately or together

Can’t recall brand.
