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.
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.
- 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.
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.
- 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

Frequently Asked Questions
- 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.
- How loud is the sound?
The sound reaches approximately 80 decibels, which is the equivalent of a ringing telephone.
- Is there an on and off switch?
Yes, the on/off switch can be found on the side of the WR-3000 receiver.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
