The WPA-3000 is an extremely reliable driveway alarm that is used to detect vehicles only. The transmitter operates on ONE 9-volt battery and has 50' of direct burial wire connecting the probe to the exterior case. The probe is buried parallel to the driveway, and will detect vehicles passing by within approximately 10-12 feet. The direct burial cable can be run to a tree or post nearby, where the transmitter box is located. When a vehicle drives by, the transmitter will send a signal to the WR-3000 receiver up to 600 feet away. The WPA-3000 is ideal in locations where there may be deer or other large animals that would cause false signals with a motion detecting system. Also, because the probe is buried underground, it will be the least noticeable of our wireless systems. The transmitter is weatherproof and meant for exterior locations. Up to FOUR zones can be monitored with additional transmitters. The transmitters can be programmed so they will each sound a different tone at the receiver.
The WPA-300 includes the WR-3000 receiver and WPT-3000 transmitter.
The WR-3000 receiver can be used with any of the Dakota Alert 3000 series transmitters (WMT-3000, WPT-3000, WHT-3000). The WR-3000 plugs in to a standard wall outlet and can be placed on a table or mounted on the wall. When the receiver gets a signal from the transmitter one of 4 different tones (Classical , Westminster Chime, Ding Dong, Whistle) will sound for a few seconds. There is also a volume control so you can set the sound to the desired level. The receiver is also equipped with 4 form "C" relays (one for each zone) and one 12 VDC output terminal that will activate for several seconds when a signal is received. The receiver can be user programmed so the 12VDC terminal and one relay will activate for 10 minutes if this is desired. The tones will still sound for several seconds.
The WPT-3000 transmitter is used with the Dakota Alert WR-3000 receiver. The WPT-3000 transmitter uses a magnetic probe and 50 feet of direct burial cable to detect vehicles at the monitored location. When the transmitter detects a vehicle it will send a signal to the receiver which will sound one of 4 different tones (Classical , Westminster Chime, Ding Dong, Whistle) for a few seconds. The transmitter can be used to monitor driveways, drive-up windows, etc.
