The Dakota 1 Mile Vehicle Alert Kit is the perfect product to use to detect vehicles in your driveway. Other signaling systems falsely detect animals passing by, but the Dakota 1 Mile Vehicle Alert Kit is much different. A probe is buried parallel to your driveway and will detect only cars within 10 to 12 feet. A direct burial cable is then run to the transmitter box, which can be placed on a post or tree. The transmitter functions on four (4) included CR123A batteries and has 50 feet of burial wire. One of four (4) available alert tones will sound when the DCR-4000 receiver gets a signal. Tones include classical, ding dong, Westminster chime, and whistle. The receiver features a five-minute delay and has a reminder beep that will sound until it is turned off. A counter function will keep track of how many times that signal has been triggered. The product's LED screen will flash the number of times the receiver was triggered throughout the entire day. A 12VDC plug is included and can be plugged into any wall outlet. Four (4) form "C" relay outputs can be paired with the other products in Dakota Alert's 4000 Alarm Series (not included).

  • One (1) receiver with DC output plug

We like it

I like it. This is the third one we got. One someone messed with, one the plow got., and now this one. Wish it still had just the beep/tone. The door bell sounds to much like our door bells, the themes, now we have the coo-coo sound, it’s ok. Let’s us know if someone is coming down the drive.

Installation was a breeze except for burying the wire. Works great and reaches from the end of a long driveway to the house.

This is my third one of these. I have line of site for about 1/4 and they work great. This one is a spare in the event lightning takes either of my other two.

Good product. instructions are easy to follow and the unit works as advertised. Especially like the 5 minute depart delay as I leave early in the morning and don't want to wake the whole house.
