Look good, a little expensive for what it is, but I didn’t have to build it. Slides right over the transmitter box. Cider smells good. Will have to see if the bugs make nest in it. Should have screens over the holes. Let’s see how it holds up over the year.
I have purchased several Dakota Alert Covert Transmitter Boxes for use with my Dakota Alert PIR Transmitters--and, frankly, in my opinion and experience the transmitters should not be used without them. They are unobtrusive and appear to be simple "bird boxes", concealing the fact that a security perimeter is in place. Why tip off a potential thief or worse that there is anything there (the transmitter) which will detect their presence? Another great product!
The box is inexpensive, and the quality reflects the cost. Even so, the first covers, which I coated with polyurethane, lasted several years. I've just applied timber oil to the new ones, and I'll be interested to see how it works to protect against rain and snow. The boxes look enough like birdhouses that they never draw any attention, which is the whole point.
