A quality driveway alarm can profoundly enhance your home or business security system. When an intruder encroaches upon your property, you want to be alerted as quickly as possible, preferably before the invasion can even occur. With the Dakota Alert WMA-3000 Wireless Motional Alert 3000 Driveway Alarm, you'll receive instant wireless alerts whenever your security is breached, and you can even incorporate additional transmitters to secure your entire perimeter.

The WMA-3000 kit contains two components: a weatherproof, high-powered transmitter and a multifaceted receiver. The two devices work together for flawless security, and are extremely simple to configure.


Transmitter

The wireless transmitter runs on a standard 9v battery and projects an invisible PIR (Passive Infrared) beam up to 80 feet away. When a human being or vehicle passes through the beam, the transmitter instantly sends a radio signal to the receiver, up to 600 feet away. The transmitter is weatherproof, so you can easily mount it to any tree, post or wall and ensure that it remains in top working condition no matter what the climate.

Features

  • Used with the Dakota Alert WR-3000 receiver
  • Uses passive infrared (PIR) detector to detect people, vehicles or large animals at the monitored location
  • Sends a signal to the receiver, which then sounds one of four different tones to alert you of a potential security breach
  • Is also useful for sheds, patios, backyards and even pool gates, where children might wander unsupervised.

Receiver

The receiver plugs into an electrical outlet can either stand on its own or be mounted to a wall. Whenever the transmitter detects activity, the receiver immediately chimes with one of 4 pre-selected tones, so you'll never be taken by surprise. You can arm your home security system to prevent an invasion, or greet a guest in the driveway before they even exit their car.

Features

  • Can be used with any Dakota Alert 3000 series transmitter (WMT-3000, WPT-3000, WHT-3000)
  • Plugs in to any standard wall outlet and can be placed on a tabletop or mounted to a wall
  • Choose between 4 different tones
  • Volume control

More Than Just a Driveway Alarm

Don't let the name fool you. While this WMA-3000 is great for driveways, it also has myriad other applications. You can secure your garage, side yards, backyard and more. Each receiver can manage up to 4 transmitters, and assign a different chime to each one. For instance, you might assign the Classical chime to your driveway transmitter, the Westminster chime to your patio transmitter, the Ding Dong chime to your pool area transmitter, and the Whistle chime to your garage transmitter.

With cutting-edge technology, you're getting more than just a driveway alarm with the WMA-3000. You're getting a 24/7 pre-alert to any and all activity on your property. Order yours today from Home Security Store, and take advantage of the amazing value that you'll only find right here.


Frequently Asked Questions

  1. How much will the signal cut down through walls?
    *The signal can reach the receiver from up to a couple hundred feet through walls and terrain. Flatter and less obtrusive terrain will allow the signal to reach a remarkable 600 feet.
  2. How loud is the sound?
    The sound reaches approximately 80 decibels, which is the equivalent of a ringing telephone.
  3. Is there an on and off switch?
    Yes, the on/off switch can be found on the side of the WR-3000 receiver.
  4. What can the relays be used for?
    The relay can be used to connect the base station to other existing systems, such as alarm panels or doorbells.
  5. Will animals set it off?
    The WMA-3000 uses a passive infrared beam meant to detect people, vehicles, and/or large animals. An average sized house pet will likely never set off the alarm, but those living in wooded areas where bears or large deer roam freely will find the unit's animal-detection properties beneficial.
  6. Will falling leaves, rain etc. trigger the sensor?
    No. The unit is completely weatherproof, which means that it both sustains against the elements without becoming damaged, and is equipped with sophisticated technology able to decipher between natural events and large objects in motion.

My driveway is about 500 yards long and lined with trees. We have tried several other driveway doorbell systems and have been disappointed. We love the fact that we get consistent notification everytime someone comes down our driveway. If you set it too low to the ground, small animals such as dogs will set it off. I have been very happy with this purchase!

I have had this alert since 2002 and it works great. Every once in a while it will alert when a bird flies by it or once in a while a car will not register but that is not very often. Also a dust storm rarely makes it go off. Freezing rain will cover the sensor and not let it go off if the wind is blowing in the right direction or the same thing with snow, but that doesn't happen very often.

Purchased this unit with the portable receiver in 2008 and have been very satisfied with the performance. I have replaced the 9v battery in the transmitter only once in 4 years and only re-charge the receiver about every other month. It has worked flawlessly for us and we're thinking of purchasing another unit.

I purchased this product over 7 years ago and would give it 5 stars if updated models would work with older models. Economical and easy to install. Long lasting and reliable. False alarms are minimal and consist of wild/tame animals. Made in USA.

I have used my wma 3000 for 6 years, trouble free, and always gave my family a safe feeling. I am now in the process of ordering a second one. Thanks

Seems to be a very good unit. I was confused trying to select the alarm -- the 8 dip switch panel is in the box UNDER the battery compartment in the transmitter. The manual didn't make that clear (at least not to me.) Easy to select the alarm when you know where to look. :o)

The first six months were great, couldn't be better. Then the transceiver decided not to work all the time. I changed the batteries still not working, talked to Tech Service and they had me send it back and they sent me a new one. Same thing, worked 6-7 months and then when ever it felt like it. Such a shame as when it works it's wonderful as I never had to worry about someone showing up unannounced.

We had this system for about 7 years and then it quit. Could not find the problem with the transmitter. Reciever still works fine. This goes approx 650 ft up a hill and thru the old farm house. In the heat we have here, it has done very well. Getting ready to order another transmitter or two. Texas

Wish I had read reviews first. We have a 1400ft driveway. With the receiver mounted 7ft off the ground on the porch, and the transmitter straight ahead with no trees, glass, walls, or any other obstructions, the best range we could manage was 363ft. unfortunately for us, there is nothing near the driveway to mount it to within that range.

I recommend this to anyone needing a driveway alarm. It is extremely easy to set-up and the outdoor sensor holds up to bad weather.

I purchased this unit after trying some of the lower-range systems. With lots of trees and a long driveway they did not work. This one works great.

Just installed today using the birdhouses for outdoor use. So far the tests show the system works as advertised and it really could not have been any easier to install. TB in KY

Having had several systems in the past, I tried every possible combination to get accurate detection. This system still misses 30% of vehicles passing within 15 feet of it.

I have had this system for three years. Worked great at first but now it is very unreliable. Sometimes it activates; sometimes it doesn't. Can't find reason although I have changed batteries, height, location. Just doesn't reliably signal.

Had the unit for five years plus. Installed the sensor on or about 800 feet from my home. Until recently, the system has performed very well meeting all my expectations. Currently, when triggered, the receiver sounds off multiple times until the power is disconnected. Not sure if it is the sensor or receiver and am still testing. Weather has been veriable with warm and cold, dry and wet. I will post the outcome as soon as I determine which end is malfunctioning. 01/03/12
