Think of the days when the weather is so bad that you simply don’t wish to go out and check your mailbox only to discover that the mail has not arrived yet! This alert is ideal for long driveways and saves time and energy spent in checking the mailbox, especially if you are expecting an important letter.

With the Dakota Alert mailbox sensor alarm kit, you can know instantly when your mail has arrived without repeatedly checking the mailbox.

The adjustable swivel sensor works on a 12 volt battery and installs easily on the door of any mailbox with a top or bottom hinge. It instantly sends an alert to the receiver each time the door is opened. The receiver accepts up to 4 separate Dakota Alert sensors (see Accessories). You can choose from 16 different alarm tunes for each sensor, and the receiver has 4 marked indicator lights that show which sensor was accessed.

The receiver has a wireless transmission range of up to 1,000 feet and operates on 3 C batteries (not included).

What's Included

  • One (1) 12V battery for sensor

"While I never expected it to work up my 800+ foot long driveway (uphill, through trees) it does work at an acceptable range of 200+ feet. I simply installed the receiver in front of one of my wired driveway cameras and know when my mail arrives. Having it work at 6V versus 12V is a little unusual, though. I have DOZENS of old transformers/power supplies and not one of them work at 6V. I have 12V, 9V, 5V. So I run 12V to a step down transformer and power it through the same wire as my camera."

"I no longer have to wonder if mail is here. Though I have a long driveway I always know as soon as the mail arrives. No questions as to did the mail come or did I get anything. No more walking out to the box to find it empty. You just cant miss!"

"Like many others my mail delivery is very erratic. While my mailbox is not that far from my house it is still inconvenient to have to constantly check to see if my mail has arrived. This device eliminates that inconvenience. This is not the first mail alert system I'm purchased but it is the most substantial and versatile. The sensor that comes with the unit has, according to the specs, a range of to a 1000 feet (305m). The base unit can either operated using 3 "C" sized batteries or with a 6v adapter. The batteries and adapter are not included. The instructions that come with the unit look rather daunting but if one follows the instructions step by step setup is quiet easy. In the beginning of this review I indicated this alert system is very versatile. What makes it so is the fact one can purchase additional sensors that are designed for other functions, one being a wireless door bell. Up to 3 additional sensors can be programmed into the base station. Additionally, the alert system can play a melody (which can be changed), light a light or do both at the same time. The only negative thing I would have to say is that the strip used to attach the sensor to the mailbox door it is too substantial. Once applied it is virtually impossible to remove. I removed that strip from the sensor and replaced with Velcro strips which allows for much easier removal. "

"We have a huge hill as a driveway. Our mail comes at different times so we purchased this so we know when it has come. Installing it shortly...can't wait."
