Dakota 1/2 Mile Driveway Alert Kit-Product Review

The Driveway Alert Kit(shown here) is a new tool for home security. When a vehicle drives over the rubber hose an alert signal is sent to the DCR 2500 receiver up to a half a mile away. The DCRH 2500 is a very reliable and easy way to install a driveway alarm. The transmitter works on one 9 V battery and has 25 feet of 3/8 inch diameter external hose that lies across the driveway. The transmitter is weatherproof and meant for exterior locations.

Up to four zones can be monitored with additional transmitters. When the receiver gets a signal from the transmitter one of four different tones will sound for a few seconds. There’s a volume control and four forms “C” relays, one for each zone. The receiver can be user programmed so the 12 volt DC terminal and relays can be set to activate for one second, 10 seconds, 60 seconds or 10 minutes.

They can operate in temperatures from -30° to 120°F. Three additional receivers can be used for this kit.
