Details

If you want to monitor the parameter of your property and know who is coming or going then Dakota Alert is the way to go. The WRH-3000 is part of Dakota Alert’s Wireless 3000 Series. Dakota Alert has been distributing and manufacturing driveway alarms for over 20 years, making the WRH-3000 one of the most reliable, time tested, and least problematic driveway alarms on the market today.

The WRH-3000 kit includes two parts – a transmitter with a 25 foot rubber hose and a receiver. The concept is simple. Lay the hose across your driveway, or the area that you want monitored, and any time a vehicle enters or leaves, the hose will be squashed sending air pressure to the transmitter which in turn will send a radio signal to the receiver and prompt an audio alert. The transmission range is 600 feet and it should be a clear, secure one with over 250 possible transmission code combinations.

The system is easy to install and easy to code. An 8-page owner’s manual will walk you through the process. You can mount the weather-proof transmitter box to hang on a wooden post or tree next to the driveway. (Please note you should mount the transmitter box about three to four feet above the ground. Furthermore, avoid using steel posts as this may interfere with the radio signal.) Meanwhile, place the receiver inside the home or property and plug it into a standard wall outlet. The receiver can lay flat on a table or it can be mounted on a wall. When the receiver is triggered it will sound one of four different tones (Classical, Westminster Chime, Ding Dong, or Whistle) for a few seconds. In addition, each receiver comes with volume control.

The transmitter operates off a 9-volt battery (not included) which should last 6 to 12 months. The rubber hose is black and is about a quarter of an inch in radius. The operating range of the rubber hose transmitter is from -30°F to 120°F. Several transmitters can be used with one receiver, making the system great for properties with two driveways.

You can also have extra receivers for additional locations such as a barn or shop. Each receiver is equipped with four form relays (one for each zone), and one 12-volt DC output terminal that will activate for several seconds when a signal is received. The receiver can be user-programmed, so the 12-volt DC terminal and one relay will activate for 10 minutes, if desired. The tones will still sound for several seconds. The WRH-3000 has a one year manufacturer’s warranty

All Dakota Alert 3000 Series accessories are available to be used with the WRH-3000 receiver (WR-3000) and can be seen on the accessory page.

• Please note that for maximum range between the transmitter and receiver, it is recommended that the receiver be mounted horizontally on a wall and as high off the floor as possible.

I have had the 3000 for 4 years now. I love it. I got it for my mom after my dad passed away so that she would know when some one is in the driveway. I find that it will use a lot of batteries. So I just go ahead and put a new battery in on the 1st of each month and that way it works fine. I do have a problem with the hose they last about 1 year then start popping cracks in the hose that have to be repaired or the alarm will not work. The bad thing is that you can't buy just the hose. I had to buy a new 3000 kit just so I have spare parts. I did have a problem with the radio transmitter I called the tech. Support and they ask me to send it to them so they can fix it or replace it. I sent it to them and less then 2 weeks I had it back like new and free of charge. As long as my mom is alive there will always be a Dakota Alert WRH-3000 in her driveway!!!! (Posted on 6/9/13)

This is terrible. we first set it up about 300 feet away with little scrubs and it did not work. Then 100 feet, no scrubs or trees or walls or anything. Nothing. We got to about 10 feet and it finally worked but only about 2/3 times. DO NOT BUY THIS! (Posted on 7/20/11)

I got my Alert 3000 for my mom after my dad's death. I find that it works just fine! I do have to put a new 9V battery in every 30 days but that is a small price to pay for something that works as great as the 3000 has for me. I got my 3000 in Aug.It is now Jan. 2011.

I am getting ready to finally order a replacement unit. I have had my first and only one for almost 10 years, across my driveway. The transmitter is tucked in a cement block and ha endured every kind of weather. The hose has held up after may times being driven over by Trucks, farm tractors and the snow plow. Got a slice in it and just used duck tape and it back to working perfectly. It is the best investment ever. My drive is 900 feet and only one way in or out. I work nights and sleep late, so it is soooooo helpful to know that someone just drove in and I better get up, find my robe and meet them at the door. I live on a farm, often get UPS deliveries and find the alarm of great value. (Posted on 7/28/10)

I mounted this device on a utility pole along a 2000 foot driveway. I found the device to have about a 350 foot range line of sight. However, I could not make the device work when mounted vertically. It would trigger normally if laying horizontally and after a call to the manufacture they suggested "screwing down" the air contact screw to make it the contacts closer. This worked somewhat. Also, it is CRITICAL that the hose does not bend in any way. It works sometimes, but I would definately put out the extra money for a better device with more range. I found one that specs out at 2000 feet with IR a couple of IR sensors for 50 bucks more. (Posted on 11/9/09)
