More About the 2500 ft Range Deluxe Driveway Alarm

The Dakota Alert 2500 ft.* Range Wireless Driveway Alarm System is the next step in the evolution of the driveway alarm. It detects and reports human or vehicle motion near any security-sensitive location such as driveways, business entrances, garages, and barns. This remarkable outdoor motion detector and alert system is perfect for extra-long-range areas and can also be used to monitor boats, RVs, trucks, mailboxes and much more.

The Dakota Alert Driveway Alarm Security System and Driveway Monitor includes one motion sensor and one receiver. This system is compatible with our 2500 ft. Infrared Motion Sensor as well as our 2500 ft. Probe Sensor. You can also purchase an unlimited number of additional 2500 ft. receivers and set the motion sensor to alert multiple receivers simultaneously. Do not settle for lesser-quality imitation driveway alarms and motion detectors.

How it works: Supply power to the devices, match coding and mount. When a person or a car passes by, their heat triggers the sensor which will then communicate to the receiver. Your receiver will play the tone and light up the zone you assigned, letting you know someone has passed by your sensor. The 12 volt relay allows you to have additional bells or sirens and can be programmed to have an output duration of up to 10 minutes. The five minute delay temporarily pauses the receiver, allowing you to slip out of the house without waking your housemates. Set the reminder beep to notify you if someone was there while you were away. Sensor has adjustable detection range, as well as light option.  Please see Features & Specs for more information.

Important: Although line-of-sight is not required, the maximum range is based on optimal conditions with minimal interference. Wireless range is affected by objects such as walls, trees, electronics etc. Actual range may vary, depending on environment.

  1. Great range, easy setup 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Nov 2015

    I've tried other products but was not satisfied. This one has great range, and easy setup. I purchases a scone one for my dad who is 78 and he had no issues with the setup or operation. He lives on 10 acers and the house is setback about a acre and a half. Reception is great. I would recommend this product.

  2. Works very well 5 Star Review

    The driveway alert was easy to install and setup. The receiver even picked up the signal in the basement.

  3. Fabulous Product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Nov 2014

    This product is great..... I believe the persons name helping me was Kevin, he was very knowledgable and very helpful. We decided on this one the DCMA-2500 and I am so happy with it. It has worked 100% perfectly since installing it. There have been "NO" false signals at all and it was so easy to install. The directions are very straight forward and easy. I have tried several motion type driveway alerts with horrible results because I live by a big power line and kept getting false alerts. This one is so different. It has several different frequencies to choose from so there is no interference from the power lines as with the other products we tried. I completely recommend this product and this website. Excellent customer service. Thank you Kevin. I am a very Happy Customer! :)

  4. Effective Remote Home Security Device 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Oct 2014

    I just installed the Deluxe Driveway Alarm on my back patio to monitor uninvited intruders daytime or night. The tests prove promising; however, I wish the infrared beam on the transmitter had a more broad (side to side)field of detection. The receiver is located centrally in the house and audible from all rooms. I would recommend the system for its' convenience and portability.

  5. Great security product. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Aug 2014

    The wireless Deluxe Driveway alarm was easy to install. We live in the desert with a long driveway. The wireless driveway alarm allows us the security of knowing when some one drives in or even walks in and not being on the drive way.

    Great Product.

  6. From San Luis Obispo 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Jul 2014

    Not bad. Placed with screws 1000 feet away onto large tree aimed at rural driveway with a good crown on roadway.

    It still did the job as indicated in instructions. Note: if you have deer it will set it off, so think about this. Also, place against something that will not move with the wind.

    Can’t live without it, neighbors, friends and solicitors don’t surprise you ever again. Great alert. Buying a wireless camera to go along with this item.

    Very happy with this alarm, I set it low to the ground to let me know if my 2 dogs walk down the driveway, also built my own bird house to put the censor in, works 100%

  8. From Corrigan, TX 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Jul 2014

    The 2500 ft. driveway alarm I recently installed exceeded all my expectations. It was so simple to install, I almost thought I surely must have done something wrong. The people I spoke with on the phone before I made my purchase were knowledgeable and helpful with my concerns. I have referred several friends to this website and when I purchase again, I’ll come back!

  9. From Ridgefield, CT 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Jul 2014

    Great product. Doesn’t work 100% of the time but will readjust when the snow disappears (hopefully before summer)

  10. From Georgetown, CA 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Jul 2014

    Very simple to set up and activate. Was hoping to gain some distance on transmission of signal but best I can do is about 300 feet due to uneven terrain. Oh well, price of living in Paradise I guess.
