More About the MURS Driveway Alarm with Underground Probe

The MURS (Multi-Use Radio Service) Alert offers the ability to monitor activity at remote locations. The MURS Alert sensor utilizes passive infrared sensor technology that will send an alert signal to the MURS hand-held radio receiver in order to notify you that someone has entered a monitored area. If you purchase additional sensors, each MURS Alert sensor is capable of sending four different alert messages to the hand-held radio receiver so that separate zones can be monitored at the same time. When an alert signal is received from the sensor, the hand-held radio will sound with the voice of the alert signal and will also display an alert icon as a visual indication that an alert signal has been received.MURS Alert gives you real-time monitoring of remote locations up to four miles away.  The MURS Alert can be used by security guards, small businesses and hunters monitoring game trails: any scenario that requires immediate notification when someone or something enters a monitored location.

Authorized by the FCC, MURS is a license-free service that allows the user to transmit voice and data. MURS also allows a maximum of 2 watts of output power, providing greater range than other license-free radio services. The MURS Alert Driveway Alarm Security System and driveway monitor includes one motion sensor and one hand-held radio receiver. An unlimited number of additional infrared motion sensors can be purchased and added to each receiver, allowing you to cover multiple locations at once. The receiver can be set to sound four distinct beeps so you know which area is detecting motion. You can also purchase additional hand-held radios or base stations and set the motion sensor to alert multiple receivers simultaneously.

How it works: Just provide power, select a channel and bury probe about 1 foot deep. When a car drives within 14 feet of the probe, it will send a signal to the receiver which will notify you with "alert zone" and the zone number associated with the sensor. The 12 Volt relay allows you to have additional bells or sirens and can connect with other N/O systems. 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.

    Our alarm is at a distance of about 1300 feet, as the crow flies, with good line of sight from the power line cut. Installation was easy. I thought the probe was strictly a metal detector, but I’m not so sure. With the only metal on me being some tooth fillings and the bases’s sensitivity set in the center, the alert sounds when I get within a couple of feet of the probe. This was while testing the system indoors. I installed the remote components with the same sensitivity setting. That night the alert sounded 4 times. I assume the culprit was a critter of some sort because I checked a couple of times from a spot I can see headlights (where the probe is buried) but saw nothing. After burying the probe and turning down the sensitivity, we have not had any true false alarms where the alert will sound. However, we do get the occassional static squawk at the base station. We may just need to turn down the sensitivity further, but it should be noted that while we live in a very rural area with lots of wildlife, the remote components are installed inside a fence corridor that has pretty low traffic. The quality of the hardware appears to be very good.

    We also purchased a MURS handheld radio, which works very well communicating with the base station. We reviewed that product as well, if interested.

    The unit works well for what we are using it for. The quality is very good and the setup was reasonably simple. My only comment is that when I moved the sensitivity level from factory settings of 11 o’clock to 12 o’clock, as the instructions recommended, and leaving channel 1 (factory settings)we picked up the truckers communication on the highway, which is about 1/4 of a mile from the 1st probe and 1/2 mile from the console. We corrected the problem by changing to channel 5 and now the unit works great. No false alarms like we got with the less expensive Dakota probe systems. I would recommend this system if you need something with longer range and more power.

    I am very pleased with the Driveway Alarm w/ underground Probe. The only thing that I did notice was that the closer to the driveway that you position the wane the better detection you receive. My distance from my transmitter to the house is about a 1/2 mile and I get very good reception at that distance. I am ordering the mobile unit for my ATV to see how it will work.

    I ordered the 4 mile radius MURS system, with an extra base station and hand held reciever. Excellent product for our purpose. Extremely easy to install (5 min) and works great. We have heavily wooded property and system works in spite of blockage. Only picks up vehicles, and we have no false alarms due to animals and other interference. I highly recommend this product. We received prompt accurate service from gadgetshack and will definitely use them for future purchases.
