• Cars are coming up the driveway
• Children go inside your tool shed
• Intruders approach the front or backyard
• Someone enters your garage
• Visitors are walking to the front door
• Your parked boat or motor home has been boarded
• Kids or pets are trampling your flowers...
...then you need the Voice Alert System-6.
Voice Alert System-6 is a new annunciator system featuring wireless PIR sensors transmitters and a remote receiver/speaker base unit. Users record their own alert messages and are then notified with their own voice message when activity in a monitored area is detected. Key applications include:
• Wireless Driveway Alarm • Residential and Small Business Security • Child Monitoring and Pool Safety • Home Automation
Voice Alert System-6 allows a maximum of six user recorded messages. Each message is specific to one zone. For instance, zone one could be for a driveway alarm -“Car coming up the driveway” while zone two could be for a sensor monitoring the back yard- “Alert! Child by the pool!” Perhaps a third sensor guards a side entrance against intruders. However, when this PIR detects movement, the base unit plays “Intruder on patio” and triggers a floodlight using one of four relays included on the base unit. System-6 can monitor all three zones simultaneously and still have three additional zones available when needed. Users can alter their messages and place the wireless sensors wherever they wish.
Voice Alert System-6 sets up in minutes and can be completely customized to fit their individual needs. The wireless PIRs feature: all weather protection, adjustable mounting and sensitivity, and can send a signal 300 feet through walls and up to 1000 feet in open space.
- Testimonials and Product Review
This is a great product!
Originally I had doubts about a 'wireless' product, but not anymore! My wife and I love the Voice Alert. It's so easy to setup and record our own messages. Sometimes we change them for fun, like last Halloween. Now we are notified when someone is coming up our walkway, enters our garage, or comes around the backyard. This is a great product!

Have your own Testimonial or Product Review? Send them in. We'd love to hear from you.
You may add transmitters (VA-6000T) to cover as many areas as you want.
Includes the base unit and a wireless sensor.
These transmitters connect to sensing devices such as smoke alarms, motion and CO detectors, window/gate/door contacts, door bells, water level indicators or pressure pads. When the sensing device is triggered, the transmitter signals the Voice Alert System. The TXPCBB-V also has a vibration sensor that will trigger if the transmitter is bumped or moved. Can be used in conjunction with VA-6000T transmitters.
Can I make a different recording for every transmitter? Yes. If you put one in your garage and one in your backyard, the recording for the garage transmitter could be something like, "There's someone in the garage." and the back yard could say, "There's someone in the backyard." This is how you would be notified if someone trespassed into those areas.
Is the Sensor/Transmitter waterproof?
The Sensor/Transmitters can be used indoors and outside. They are designed to withstand weather including rain and snow but are not designed to be submerged in water. When installed outside the Sensor/Transmitters do best when in a covered area and not in direct sunlight.
How does the Sensor/Transmitter work?
The Sensor/Transmitter is a passive infrared receiver (PIR). It detects movement by the change it causes in background temperature and then transmits a radio signal to the Receiver/Speaker that movement has been detected.
How far will the Sensor/Transmitter send a signal to the Receiver/Speaker?
The Sensor/Transmitters will transmit a signal in an open area up to 1000 feet to the Receiver/Speaker. Through walls the Sensor/Transmitters will transmit a signal to the Receiver/Speaker up to 300 feet.
Will tree branches trigger a false signal?
It is possible for branches to cause a false trigger. The best location to install the Sensor/Transmitter in an area where tree branches and bushes will not be blown by a wind in the detection zone of the Sensor/Transmitters.
Will birds or dogs or cats trigger a false signal?
The Sensor/Transmitters are designed to ignore small animals under 40 Lbs. To reduce the possibility for a false trigger caused by movement of a small animal it is recommended that the Sensor/Transmitters be mounted at a height of 7 1/2 feet above the ground. The lower the Sensor/Transmitters are mounted the higher the chance of picking up a small animal.
How often will the Sensor/Transmitter send a signal?
The Sensor/Transmitter has two modes for sensing movement and sending a signal. The (setup) mode that is set at the factory identifies all movement and transmits each detected movement to the Receiver/Speaker. The battery saver mode will detect movement every 3 minutes and then transmit to the Receiver/Speaker. Removing the jumper in the Sensor/Transmitter will setup this mode.
Will the system work through walls of my home?
The system is designed to function through the interior walls of a home and exterior walls of a home. The Sensor/Transmitters have difficulty transmitting a signal through aluminum siding or metal surfaces and are best located on a window in that situation.
How many Sensor/Transmitters will the system recognize?
There is no limit to the number of Sensor/Transmitters that can be installed with a system. There are 6 voice messages that are available for the Sensor/Transmitters to activate.
How long will the Receiver/Speaker work off the battery?
The Receiver/Speaker is designed to function as a power back up in the event of a power outage. The Receiver/Speaker battery will function for up to 2 hours depending on the amount of speaker activity.
Can a Sensor/Transmitter be recognized by more than one Receiver/Speaker?
The Sensor/Transmitter can be set to activate an unlimited number of Receiver/Speakers.
Will the Sensor/Transmitter recognize a small child?
The Sensor/Transmitter is intended to identify children of about 40 Lbs or larger when the Sensor/Transmitter is installed at a height of 7 1/2 feet above the ground. If it is desired to identify smaller children then the Sensor/Transmitter will need to be installed lower to the ground. When animals are present they may create a false trigger.
Will the Sensor/Transmitter work in the dark?
Yes, the Sensor/Transmitter will work in the dark or in full light.
How long will the battery last in the Sensor/Transmitter?
The battery in the Sensor/Transmitter can last up to 1 year depending on if the Sensor/Transmitter is set to battery saver mode. Temperature can also affect the life of any battery. Operating a battery at cold temperature will reduce its life.
How large of an area do the Sensor/Transmitters monitor?
The Sensor/Transmitters are designed to monitor a 40-foot by 40-foot area when they are installed at 7 1/2 feet above the ground and there are no obstructions.
Where can I get additional Sensor/Transmitters?
Additional Sensor/Transmitters are available on this web site.

Make sure there are no obstructions or moving objects (tree limbs etc) in desired detection pattern.
Sensor/Transmitters should not be installed where they will face direct sunlight or oncoming automobile headlights. (indirect light through a window will not cause a trigger)
Avoid installing Sensor/Transmitters on metal surfaces such as aluminum siding or metal doors.
Do not drop any of the VOICE ALERT components as doing so may damage them
Voice Alert System-6 - Self Defense Article
When Dr. Ron Caro's wife wanted to leave their apartment after their new mountain bikes were stolen from their balcony facing the alley, Dr. Caro installed a security system that has caught and prosecuted more than 14 perpetrators in the past two years.
Dr.Caro lives in an upscale neighborhood in Whittier, California, in an apartment directly above the complex's carports adjacent to the alley. Two year's ago, after his bikes were stolen, Dr. Caro purchased four bullet cameras, a time-lapse video recorder, and a quad to monitor the activity in and around the carports, alley, and patio. The week after installing the system, a neighbor had a break-in, so Dr. Caro reviewed the tape to see what happened. He found the incident and gave the tape to the police.
"The police took a report and told me that unless I knew where the suspect lived or who he was there was really no way to catch the guy," Dr. Caro explained.
So Dr. Caro added Voice Alert, a wireless notification device, to his system. The Voice Alert system combines wireless infrared sensors with a speaker/receiver that allows the user to record up to six individual messages. When a sensor is triggered by activity, a signal is sent to the receiver/speaker and it plays the corresponding message to alert the home or business owner that an incident has occurred.
Dr. Caro installed three Voice Alert sensors in the carport and positioned them so that the infrared beams intersected to detect anything that entered the carport. Less than a week after he installed Voice Alert, the receiver speaker sounded at 4 a.m. playing the message "Someone's in the carport!" and waking Dr. Caro.
He turned on his monitor and saw the same guy who robbed his neighbor a week earlier in his carport. The time-lapse video recorder was recording and Caro, a former Marine Corps Officer, held the suspect until police arrived. Dr. Caro gave the time-lapse recording to the police, providing enough evidence to prosecute the suspect. That same scenario, with different suspects, has occurred numerous times over the past two years. Each with the same outcome, the suspect gets caught and prosecuted.
"One police officer even mentioned that more people should have a system like mine," said Dr. Caro. "As far as I'm concerned, surveillance without sensors is not effective. You need to catch them in the act."
Dr. Caro looked at other notification systems and found Voice Alert to have the best wireless range and the best price. "It's a great piece of equipment," said Dr. Caro.
It would be nice to believe that nothing will happen to you, but the reality of it is that an ounce of protection could be worth more than a pound of cure. What is Worth Protection to you? Your
belongings? Your family? Your personal well-being?
