The MURS-BS Kit is a long range driveway alarm that uses analog, “Multi-Use Radio Service” to transmit a signal from the long-range driveway sensor to the transceiver up to several miles.  If you live on a farm or ranch, have a large piece of property, or environmental factors such as concrete, steel, etc. are present, this product is a great solution for a long distance driveway alarm. This MURS driveway alarm kit is available with a desktop receiver (shown below) or a hand-held portable receiver.

Why Use the Dakota Alert MURS-BS Long Range Driveway Alarm Over Other?

If the distance from the entrance of your driveway to the receiver is over 4,000 feet, this is just about the only product on the market that can meet these demands.  The product uses the MURS analog radio service to transmit alerts several miles away.  This is the analog frequency that common handheld walkie-talkies will use. 

The base station that receives the message in this kit, the M538 Base Station, is a transceiver meaning it can send and receive radio communication.  As with other products in the MURS Dakota Alerts family, multiple transceivers can communicate.  Just as you can expand the system by adding more transceivers, you can also add additional transmitters like motion- and probe-based sensors.

  • Range of up to several miles*
  • The transmitter uses 6 AA Alkaline batteries
  • Under most conditions, battery life should be one year
  • Detects any movement within the detection zone
  • The base station plugs into a standard wall outlet
  • Base station capable of four zones to enable you to determine which sensor (if you have more than one) has been triggered
  • The transceiver (receiver) will play voice alerts such as “alert zone 1.”
  • There is no limit to the number of transmitters and receivers you can use with this system.
  • The handheld version transceiver is supplied with six rechargeable batteries with a charger. You should get up to 10 days per charge.
  • The FCC also allows you to use MURS without a license. Although other radio services require a license, MURS is license-free.

*Actual range will vary depending on the local terrain

Dakota Alerts has produced another winner.  The MURS BS Kit features a PIR-based movement detection sensor and a plug-in transceiver speaker.  This combination provides an outstanding range of up to several miles.  This is achieved through “Multi-Use Radio Service,” the frequency the set uses to transmit.

The transmitter detects movement through PIR technology.  Powered by batteries, it transmits a wireless signal to the base station transceiver when movement is detected.

The transceiver and transmitter feature an antenna connected to the base with a BNC connector.  If you need additional range over the published “several” miles, you could run a coax cable and connect one end to a large antenna and the other to the base.

Additional transceivers and/or additional transmitters may be used.  Also available is the M538-H, which is a handheld transceiver.

I Only Want to Detect Cars with a Drive Way Alert

As outlined above, this kit features a motion sensor for a long-range driveway sensor. Any object moving through the detection zone will trigger the MURS driveway alarm receiver. This may be precisely what you are looking for; however, if you only want your driveway alert kit to detect metallic objects (cars & trucks) then you may want to consider the following two products:

  • MAPS-BS-KIT: this is very similar to this product except for the sensor. The MAPS kit features a magnetometer sensor that detects motion only. With a range of up to 3 miles, this may or may not better suit your needs.
  • DCPA-4K-PLUS: this is the newest addition to the Dakota driveway alert product line. This kit also features a magnet probe sensor but has the newest Dakota Alert receiver. With a range of up to 5,000 ft., it does not have the range of the MAPS-BS-KIT but has several factors you may want to consider.
