    For more significant properties, the DCMA-4000 Dakota Driveway Alarm is a great long-range driveway monitor, a complete driveway monitoring system that’s reliable, high-powered, and budget-friendly based on the performance range.  Like most wireless kits, it works when the transmitter/sensor detects movement and sends a wireless signal to the plug-in receiver.  

    The driveway sensor/transmitter emits an invisible laser beam, creating a detection zone of up to 50′.  When the combination of heat and movement enters this detection created by the driveway monitoring zone, your chime/receiver will sound, alerting you that movement has been detected.

    This product is similar to the ERA-DSDCR driveway alarm kit by Safeguard Supply.  The ERA-DSDCR features 4 x 12V DC outputs and a C-Form relay to add sirens, strobes, and other accessories, whereas this driveway monitoring system, the DMCA-4000 by Dakota Alert, does not.

    Reasons to Choose the DCMA-4000 Driveway Monitor:

    DCR-4000 Dakota Alert Receiver for use in DCPA 4000 Dakota Alert Drive Over Driveway Alarm
    DCAMA- 4000 Dakota Alert Driveway Monitor
    • A range of 5,000 feet (transmitter to receiver) works great for large properties or where environmental factors interfere with shorter-range alarm systems.
    • Small transmitter blends seamlessly into the environment to avoid detection.
    • Expandable product – add more receivers, transmitters, or other helpful accessories

    This Dakota driveway alarm, the DCMA-4000, ships with two components, the DCMT-4000 and the DCR-4000, which are a sensor/transmitter and a receiver/speaker, respectively.  If you have more than one drive way, or area, you would like to monitor; you can expand the system with additional driveway monitoring alert transmitters.  You can also add more receivers to the system. 

    The Dakota driveway sensor is a small, compact device powered by a 9-volt battery.  To monitor your driveway – or any area – mount the outdoor driveway motion sensor perpendicular to the area you want to monitor.  The transmitter has a detection zone of roughly 50 feet, and when it detects movement, it transmits a wireless signal to the plugin receiver/speaker. 

    For example, if you want to monitor the driveway, simply mount the sensor next to the driveway with the beam shooting across it.  At our offices, we use the transmitter to notify us when a delivery truck approaches the loading door.

    • The sensor detection zone emitted from the sensor is approximately 50 feet. The beam comes out small and tends to fan out the further you move from the sensor.
    • The sensor will transmit a wireless signal up to one mile (depending on environmental factors).  This is the distance from the transmitter to the receiver.
    • A 9-volt battery powers the wireless sensor.   Battery life, in normal conditions, is approximately 1-1/2 years.
    • The receiver plugs into a standard wall outlet.
    • Operates with all Dakota 4000 products.
    • The receiver has a volume control knob.

    *Please note the video below demos the DCMA-2500 by Dakota Alert, which has been discontinued. The upgraded model is the DCMA-400 which increases the driveway monitor alarm distance by up to 5,000 ft. from the driveway sensor to the driveway chime receiver.
