The Dakota Alert 2500 Duty Cycle series of Driveway Alarms have an incredible 2500 foot wireless range! This wireless probe alert driveway alarm system will detect vehicles entering your driveway or passing by where you have the Dakota Alert probe alert sensor positioned. The alarm will then send a wireless signal 2500 feet back to the Dakota Alert Duty Cycle Receiver (DCR-2500). The Dakota Alert Duty Cycle Probe Alert system will only detect moving metal so you will never have false alarm signals from large animals, dogs etc..
The Dakota Alert DCPT-2500 uses 4 3V Batteries, the batteries typically last approximately 12 months depending on uses, climate etc.. You will receive a low battery warning when the battery is getting low.The vehicle sensor probe will detect vehicles up to about 10 feet away from the probe. If your driveway is one car width wide you can bury the probe beside it, however if your driveway is two or more car widths wide we recommend burying the probe in the middle of the driveway, or if this is impossible; burying two probes, one on each side of the driveway.
The Dakota Alert Duty Cycle Receiver comes with built in volume control, four form "C" relay outputs and one 12V output which can be easily programmed to activate for 1 seconds, 10 seconds, 60 seconds or 10 minutes. The new Dakota Alert driveway alarm receiver also has a new reminder feature, you can choose to have small LED lights flash and/or have an audible beep every 15 minutes after alarm events in case you missed the initial chime!
