I bought mine at Northern Tools, paid a little more but had more led's. Fasten to a 10' conduit stuck over a fence post. It worked great, had to set up at night to get the motion sensor in the right angle.
Also used a wireless motion sensor alarm, like one used for driveways, to wake me up when the hogs came in.

What's the range on the wireless motion alarm?

Added some red lens tape, unsure if it will make a difference to the pigs, but it definitely cut the brightness down drastically

The range on the motion sensor is the 30-40 feet, the device that alerts you is good for 100 yards or better. This is for the driveway alert system from Northern Tool.

Awe, that makes more sense... I was thinking 30-40yrds isn't much .....ironically our camp is about 100-110 yards away from where I'm setting this up so it may work perfect

Yes, had to wrap a cloth around the receiver to keep noise low. Bought a extra transmitter for two locations around feeder it has different tone, same receiver.

I bought one like that from harbor Freight. Works pretty well. range 100 to 400 yards depending line of sight. Has a high and low on the receiver as far as sound.
