Don't get caught off guard when vehicles approach your home or business. Perfect for protecting driveways, drive thru, service centers, farms and property entrances. The Dakota Alert DCPA-4000 driveway alarm system uses a magnetic probe that senses the change in magnetic field caused by large moving metal objects like cars, trucks and heavy equipment. The magnetic vehicle probe is buried along side or under the driveway and a wire is run to the wireless transmitter that can mount on a wall, tree or pole. When a vehicle drives through the detection area, the wireless transmitter will send a signal to the receiver which will play a sound and light up the LED indicator light. Get creative and use the sensor to alert you to garbage trucks, farm vehicles or even moving garbage bins and lids for commercial garbage bins. The DCPA-4000 has a long wireless range of up to 1 mile from transmitter to receiver.
The included DCR4000 receiver offers 12 different sounds to choose from:
- Ding Dong (high)
- Ding Dong (low)
- Fur Elise
- Coo Coo Clock
- Bird Chirping
- Twinkle Twinkle
- William Tell
- Cannon in D
- Toreador March.
Note: The DCPA-4000 replaces the DCPA-2500 with up to double the wireless range, but it does not have any relay or 12VDC output. 4000 series devices are not compatible with 2500 series products.
