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 is perfect for situations where the driveway is very long from the house (or office) or where environmental factors interfere with other driveway alarm models.  The radio service used to transmit the wireless signals on this unit makes it ideal for terrain, woods, hills, etc., which tends to limit other models.

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

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

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

The MAPS wireless driveway alarm system uses a probe buried in the ground.  From the probe, a wire connects to a wireless transmitter, sending the wireless signal to the transmitter.

The transceiver in the MURS BS Kit is the M538-BS.  You 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.

I received my order very quickly. I reviewed the instillation instructions and they are quite clear. I have not as yet installed my product.

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.
