Dakota Alert's MURS Alert Probe Sensor is a wireless vehicle detection driveway alarm whose range and connectivity offers the ideal solution for business owners attempting to monitor customer traffic, farmers monitoring vacant farm sites, or even real estate and home developers who would like to monitor their various remote lots but cannot necessarily afford to provide physical security.
With a range of up to several miles, the MURS transmitter sends wireless alert signals to either your M538-BS or M538-HTtransceivers upon detecting approaching vehicles. And with its reliable and sophisticated detection-technology you are free from worrying about approaching or passing animals setting off any false-alarms, which saves you the time, money and effort it can take to perform the often-tedious task of inspecting your properties.
Reliability and safety go hand in hand, and Dakota Alert has taken every precaution to ensure your system will not fail you. As listening to the radios in our cars have taught us, wireless signals can be marked by interference. But your fear of crossing signals can be laid to rest, as the MURS Alert Probe Sensor gives you 5 distinct channels and 38 sub-channels to choose from, eliminating the risk of interference from other user signals. Furthermore, the system requires only 6 AA alkaline batteries with a battery life of six to twelve months under most conditions.
How It Works
Probe is connected to transmitter box with 50' of direct burial cable. Place probe in driveway and when MURS Alert detects vehicle, signal is sent to receiver in spoken English and twice repeats the phrase "Alert Zone One," "Alert Zone Two," "Alert Zone Three," or "Alert Zone Four." The four alert messages are easily selected at the transmitter, so that up to four different zones can be monitored simultaneously.

THE BAD - Lightning sets them off like crazy - and I mean lightning that you can see, but is so far away there's not even audible thunder! Tech Support at Dakota Alert said I could try grounding the shield on the sensor wire, but that's going to be beyond the scope of the average homeowner. (I'm a ham radio operator, and had no problem doing that, but lightning still sets them off.)
To the person who cut his cord with the lawn-mower... It's not magic cable! It's just "direct-bury sprinkler wire" with a shield - Home Depot sell it all day long. You do NOT need to buy another unit. Just solder the wires back together and heat-shrink it... You coulda fixed it for a couple dollars!!! (Posted on 6/6/12)
