Remember the days when you pulled into a gas station or through the dry-cleaners drive thru, over the rubber hose to hear the ding sound?  Although the technology of rolling over a rubber hose has been around a long time, it continues to be a very reliable form of a driveway alarm.  A heavy object rolling over the rubber hose triggering the sensor eliminates false alarms by things like animals, falling leaves, etc.

Couple that reliability with the power of a 5000 ft. wireless range and you have a beautiful marriage.    The Dakota Alert DCRH-4000 is pneumatic (rubber hose) sensor based driveway alert system that will transmit a wireless signal up to 5000 ft. (line of sight).  The kit comes with 25 feet (3/8” diameter) of rubber hose connected to a transmitter box.  The transmitter is powered by  1 x 9V (not included) battery. When triggered (car rolling over hose) the transmitter sends a wireless radio signal up to 1 mile away to the included chime receiver.

The receiver will play the selected melody (12 to choose from) when triggered.  You can purchase additional receivers (DCR-4000) to distribute the sound throughout the area where you want to  hear the sound.  The receiver features a volume selector button and may located up to 1 mile from the rubber-hose transmitter.
