Suggestions for PIR driveway alert to my Android phone


I'm looking for a PIR motion detection device that will alert my Android phone when somebody is coming up my driveway.
I'm not bothered about video, I just want to be warned somebody is coming, and ideally filter out animal false alerts & run off batteries.
It doesn't have to be a main brand, any cheap Chinese knock-off is fine.

I'm struggling to find a outdoor suitable PIR sensor that will connect via WIFI to an Android app.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,

I have two of these that I use to activate security/welcome lights, they will also notify my phone if I wanted that. There work via the Android Smart Life app. Although not rated for outdoor use, a strip of tape around the joint does the trick. I've been using them for over 2 years. Batteries last 9-12 months depending of how active they are. They cannot determine between a cat or a person, but careful positioning could overcome that.
Possibly as cheap and cheerful as it gets.

Thanks Hyperfish but no link or product name came through on your message.
What do you have two of?

There should be an Amazon link to this.
