The Reporter Wireless Alarm is also known as the Chamberlain Wireless Pedestrian and Vehicle Alert System. The alarm alerts you with a sound as well as a flashing green light if motion is detected within its 30-foot range. The base station can be placed up to 100 feet away from the sensor, and can be programmed to work with up to four sensors.
