driveway alert -app?

Is there a driveway alert system that will notify your phone ? A good amount of these systems have alerts you install in your home and it makes a noise to notify you if something enters your driveway. I would rather make the notification a little more subtle. Ideas???

There are camera systems that will send alerts to smartphones.

Amazon Blink XT can do what you want and it is reasonably priced. It runs on battery (can also run on USB) and requires WiFi connection. The motion detector works best for motion across the field of view so it should be mounted at the side of the driveway, not looking down the length. The notification comes when the camera stops recording so for driveway notification you would set the clip recording length to the 5 second minimum for "immediate" notification on your phone. The service is cloud-based but there are no fees.
