Mighty Mule FM231 Wireless Driveway Alarm is rated 2.7 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cable is WAY too short!!! Not cool that the cable between the transmitor and magnet is so short that the transmitor has to be right in the grass. Have to mow around it because it won't reach over to any shrub or post.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from short Cable - odd tone So far it seems to work ok - but as mentioned in other reviews, the cable is WAY to short. If you are comfortable splicing you can use cat5 to extend it to the length you need - we used direct burial cat5 (gel filled) and telephone button splices (also gel filled) to add 15' to the line. Most installations don't require that much, but you'll find you wish you had at least 3-4 more feet. Cable does have a standard USB plug on the end, but keep in mind, USB is not water tight, so you cannot just add an extension and bury the connector without some creative thinking. The tone is just plan odd. It's defiantly not a "happy" tone, and it's not a chime other - honestly I would have given this 5 stars if I could change the tone - as the splicing Idid above was not an issue for me.
