We needed a driveway alarm for people who need a super range product.  Something that could alert them whether they are in their home or office, or working hard on their ranch.  Dakota delivers!  The MAPS-BS-KIT Driveway Alarm Detects Cars from Miles Away!

This extended range wireless driveway alarm perfect for situation where the driveway is a very long distance the house (or office) or where there are environmental factors that interfere with other driveway alarm models.  The radio service used to transmit the wireless signals on this unit make it ideal for terrain, woods, hills, etc. that tend to limit other models.

Stucco, metal, concrete, are all elements this system deals with better than some of the other units.  If handheld walkie-talkie can communicate from your driveway to the inside area where you would place the receiver, then this unit would work as well.

The “MAPS” system will detect large metallic objects and won’t trigger on movement from animals or people.  The MURS driveway alarm products will pick up any movement but the MAPS system will only detect automobiles.

These KITs are a long range wireless driveway alarm by Dakota Alerts. This driveway alarm system using Multi Use Radio Service to transmit a wireless signal to the receiver/speaker.

The MAPS wireless driveway alarm system uses a probe that is buried in the ground.  From the probe, there's a wire that connects to a wireless transmitter, which will send the wireless signal to the transmitter.

The transceiver in the MURS BS Kit is the M538-BS.  You simply plug the transceiver into a standard wall outlet.  There is also a handheld receiver, the M538 HT available.  The kit with the handheld transceiver is the MAPS-HT-KIT.

Driveway alarm

Great product, Great Service

This is the second system I tried.

This is the second system I tried. You pay a bit more, but it is worth every penny. rnrnThe installation is simple, the reliability, at least to now, very high. There is an occasional false alarm, but it has to be lightening and thundering for that to happen.rnrnI am very satisfied with the system. It also allowed me to avoid repair of a damaged built in system that would have cost thousands.rnrnRicardo.
