Product Description

Dakota Alert MAPS-BS-KIT Wireless Driveway Alarm System

The Dakota Alert MAPS BS Kit provides real-time monitoring in a residential driveway or commercial service station. Simply bury the MURS Alert Probe Sensor in the center of the driveway. Placing the probe and 50-feet direct burial cable in a 2-inch Schedule 80 PVC pipe protects the wires from any damage. Whenever a vehicle drives over the probe, the transmitter box (mounted inside your home or shop) will transmit an alert signal to the paired M538-BS Transceiver. Because the probe only detects moving metals, MAPS will not send a false alarm if an animal crosses over your property.

The M538-BS MURS Base Station uses a low-power, short-range service. It can operate in Very High Frequencies (151.820~154.600 MHz) but doesn’t require an FCC license. The Multi-Use Radio Service (MURS) was created by the US Federal Communications Commission and complies with their strict regulations.
