Summer is here, which means long afternoons in the backyard, weekend getaways, even multi-week vacations. And that means keeping an eye on your home is more important than ever, whether you want to hear the delivery driver arrive when you're out back or protect your property from intruders while you're away.

The problem? Professional alarm systems can be expensive and overcomplicated. The solution? The Guardline Wireless Driveway Alarm. The weatherproof, motion-detecting powerhouse has a 500-foot range — that's a lot of coverage!

And it's massively on sale. Right now you can grab it for just $51 (with on-page coupon) at Amazon, down from $150. To say it's popular is an understatement — over 4,000 reviewers have found peace of mind with their Guardline alarms.

Sensitive to both heat and motion and designed to work during the day or night in a variety of environmental elements (we're looking at you, snow, rain, sleet and fog), the Guardline is perfect for everyday homeowners with an outsize concern for safety. It's super easy to install and can be plugged in via an AC adaptor or powered with AA batteries (they'll last for up to a year). This set includes one sensor and one receiver, but you can expand and customize your coverage with 16 more sensors and unlimited receivers. Set up alarms throughout your property, and have receivers in your bedroom, office or patio. Choose from 32 alert melodies!

Passersby won't even know it's there. "I spent hours pouring over reviews for products like this, ultimately deciding on this particular brand/model," says one clever customer. "I love the receiver — it looks nice, sounds good, has adjustable volume, etc. The transmitter is not the prettiest thing, but I think it helps to make it not so conspicuous. So I screwed mine to a plank and screwed that to a tree, then covered the housing with camouflage tape so it's really not that visible." He adds an all-important detail: "False alarms? None."

"Worked perfectly right out of the box," another happy shopper testified. "It has a couple dozen different tones, from police siren to lullabye to single chirp. Loud enough at full volume that I have it in the basement and I can hear it well enough upstairs."

So get going on those summer getaways — your home will be just fine.
