A driveway alarm can be that extra layer of home security that you need! For those of you who already have an alarm system in place, a driveway alarm protects the parameter of your home and will instantly warn you of unwanted intruders. It can be useful for reasons beyond security too, as the driveway alarm can also give you that extra time to greet an approaching guest or to answer the door.
The new DCMT-2500 Dakota Alert Duty Cycle Motion Transmitter is similar to its successful predecessor, the WMA-3000, in that it is used to monitor remote locations and detect people, vehicles, or large animals entering your property. What sets the DCMT-2500 truly apart from the WMA-3000 and other driveway alarms, however, is that the signal between this transmitter and the receiver can range up to an impressive 1,500 feet! The weatherproof transmitter operates on a single 9-volt battery and is easily mountable on a tree or post near the driveway.
How It Works:
The DCMT-2500 is used with the DCR-2500 - Dakota Alert Duty Cycle Receiver. The DCMT-2500 uses a passive infrared detector to detect people, vehicles or large animals at the monitored location. When the transmitter detects an object, it will send a signal to the receiver, which will sound one of four different tones (Classical, Westminster Chime, Ding Dong or Whistle) for a few seconds.
The DCR-2500 - Dakota Alert Duty Cycle Receiver will receive a signal from the DCMT-2500 - Dakota Alert Duty Cycle Motion Transmitter, which can be placed as much as 1,500 feet away from the receiver. The DCR-2500 requires no license to operate and features four chime tones to choose from.
The DCR-2500 receiver comes with 4 form "C" relay outputs and 1 12V output which can be programmed to activate for:
- 1 seconds
- 10 seconds
- 60 seconds
- 10 minutes
Moreover, the DCR-2500 receiver also features a brand new "Reminder" Feature. What this means is that you can choose to allow the unit to flash small LED lights and/or have it sound an audible "Beep" every 15 minutes after an event is triggered in case you missed it.

PLEASE NOTE: The Dakota Alert 2500 series alarms DO NOT work with the Dakota Alert 3000 series.
