Wireless Motion Alert 3000
WMA-3000 • 3,000' range*
Includes one transmitter and one receiver
The WMA-3000 is the next step in the evolution of the
driveway alarm. We have taken our years of experience and created the ultimate in wireless systems. The
transmitter operates on one 9-volt battery and is easily
mounted on a tree or post near the drive. The transmitter uses a passive infrared (PIR) beam to detect people
or vehicles to a distance of up to 80 feet, then sends a
radio signal back to the WR-3000 receiver up to 3,000
feet away*.
The transmitter is weather proof and meant for exterior locations. Up to four zones can be monitored with
additional transmitters. The transmitters can be programmed so they will each sound a different tone at
the receiver.
The WR-3000 is the receiver for the WMA-3000 system. The WR-3000 plugs into a standard wall outlet
and can be placed on a table or mounted on the
wall. When the receiver gets a signal from the transmitter, one of four different tones (Classical, Westminster Chime, Ding Dong, or Whistle) will sound
for a few seconds. There is also a volume control,
allowing you to set the sound to the desired level.
The WR-3000 is equipped with four form “C” relays
(one for each zone), and one 12-volt DC output terminal that will activate for several
seconds when a signal is received. The receiver can be user-programmed, so the 12-volt
DC terminal and one relay will activate for 10 minutes, if this is desired. The tones will
still sound for several seconds.
Operating Range: -30F to 120F
*Actual range will vary depending on the local terrain.
Note: Our 3000 Series products use the latest technology. Therefore, they are not compatible with our
earlier products.
Wireless Probe Drive Alert
WPA-3000 • 3,000' range*
Includes one transmitter and one receiver
The WPA-3000 is an extremely reliable driveway alarm
that is used to detect vehicles only. The transmitter
operates on one 9-volt battery and has 50' of direct
burial wire connecting the probe to the exterior case.
The probe is buried parallel to the driveway, and will
detect vehicles passing
by within approximately
10-12 feet. The direct
burial cable can be run
to a tree or post nearby,
where the transmitter box
is located. When a vehicle
drives by, the transmitter
will send a signal to the
WPA-3000 receiver up to
3,000 feet away*.
The WPA-3000 is ideal in locations where there may be deer or other large animals that
would cause false signals with a motion detecting system. Also, because the probe is buried underground, it will be the least noticeable of our wireless systems. The transmitter
is weatherproof and meant for exterior locations. Up to four zones can be monitored
with additional transmitters. The transmitters can be programmed so they will each
sound a different tone at the receiver.
The WR-3000 is the receiver for the WPA-3000 system. See opposite page.
Operating Range: -30F to 120F
*Actual range will vary depending on the local terrain.
Note: Our 3000 Series products use the latest technology. Therefore, they are not compatible with our
earlie r products.

Includes one transmitter and one receiver
The WRH-3000 is a very reliable and easy to install driveway alarm. The transmitter operates on one 9-volt
battery and has 25' of 3/8" diameter exterior hose
that will lie across the drive. When a vehicle drives
over the hose, a signal will be sent to the WR-3000
receiver up to 3,000 feet away*.
The transmitter is weatherproof and meant
for exterior locations. Up to 4 zones
can be monitored with additional
transmitters. The transmitters can be
programmed so they will each sound
a different tone at the receiver.
The WR-3000 is the receiver
for the WRH-3000 system.
The WR-3000 plugs into a
standard wall outlet and
can be placed on a table or
mounted on the wall. When
the receiver gets a signal from the transmitter, one of four different tones (Classical,
Westminster Chime, Ding Dong, or Whistle) will sound for a few seconds. There is also a
volume control, allowing you to set the sound to the desired level.
The WR-3000 is equipped with four form “C” relays (one for each zone), and one 12-volt
DC output terminal that will activate for several seconds when a signal is received. The
receiver can be user-programmed, so the 12-volt DC terminal and one relay will activate
for 10 minutes, if this is desired. The tones will still sound for several seconds.

Hard Wired Vehicle Sensor
Item #VS-50 • Vehicle sensor complete with 50' of wire
Item #VS-125 • Vehicle sensor complete with 125' of wire
Item #VS-250 • Vehicle sensor complete with 250' of wire
The hard wired vehicle sensor lets you know any time
a vehicle enters or leaves the driveway. The probe of
the vehicle sensor detects metal objects, such as moving cars, in a ten to twelve foot radius of the sensor.
The vehicle sensor probe should be buried parallel to
or under the driveway. Then the direct burial wire is
run back to the control box that is located in the
house. The probe will detect vehicles moving
by and send a signal through the line to the
control box, which will sound a whistle. The
probe and wire can easily be buried in turf
with a shovel or a lawn edger. If the probe
is to be buried in the middle of the drive, it
is best to have the probe and wire in a conduit to protect it from any damage caused by
heavy vehicles. If there are gophers, moles, etcetera, in the area, it would be best to have
the entire length of wire in a conduit.
The control box simply plugs into a 110-volt outlet, and has an on/off switch on the top
of the box. There is a set of contacts to connect the two wires from the probe, as well as
a set of 12-volt DC (500mA max) contacts. The voltage output can be used to operate
sirens, bells, or a light timer. Everything is color coded and labeled for easy reference.
The whistle and the voltage output are adjustable for 2, 4 or 8 seconds. The control box
can run up to three probes, and has a sensitivity control so that it can be custom tuned
to each application.
The probes for the vehicle sensor are available with either 50, 125, or 250 feet of direct
burial cable. We do not recommend splicing the wire if it can be avoided, but if you do
need to splice, make sure it is a water-tight splice.

MURS Alert™
Long Range Alert Systems
The new MURS Alert™ offers the ability to monitor activity at remote locations. The
MURS Alert™ transmitter utilizes passive infrared sensor technology to send an alert
signal to the MURS transceivers, letting you know that someone has entered a monitored area. The M538-HT and M538-BS transceivers can also be used for two-way voice
communications.
The MURS Alert™ transmitter is capable of sending 4 different alert messages to the
transceiver. The alert signals will be spoken English, and are easily selected at the transmitter so that separate zones can be monitored at the same time. MURS Alert™ will
give you real-time monitoring of remote locations up to several miles away.
The MURS Alert™ has many different applications; it can be used by security guards,
small businesses, and by hunters monitoring game trails — any scenario that requires
immediate notification when someone or something enters a monitored location.
Authorized by the FCC, MURS (Multi-Use Radio Service) 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. This means greater range than other license-free radio services.
About MURS
MURS (Multi-Use Radio Service) was authorized by the FCC in November of 2000 as a
private, two-way voice or data communications service for personal or business activities.
The five MURS channels are available on a shared basis only. No channels are assigned
on an exclusive basis, therefore it is up to the user to cooperate in the channel selection
to help avoid interference. FCC rules do allow for the use of external antennas with MURS.
Who Can Use MURS?
No license is needed. A person is authorized by rule to operate an MURS radio providing he or she is not a representative of a foreign government. Also, MURS can be used
anywhere in the United States except onboard an aircraft in flight.
Range
You will notice that we described the range of the MURS system as several miles. While
this might sound a little vague, we are not trying to deceive. The range will be dependent on your local surroundings. We have tested units here in South Dakota over flat
ground to ranges of about four miles. However, if you are in an urban area with many
tall buildings, your range may be significantly lessened.

MURS Alert™ Transmitter
Item #MAT
The MURS Alert™ transmitter is a revolutionary new trail
monitoring system. The MURS Alert™ transmitter is a passive
infrared sensor that can be mounted on a tree or a post to
monitor activity at remote locations. When the MURS Alert™
detects people, vehicles, or large animals, it will send an
alert signal to either the M538-BS or M538-HT transceivers.
The alert signal will be in spoken English, twice repeating
the phrase “Alert Zone One,” “Alert Zone Two,” “Alert Zone
Three,” or Alert Zone Four.” The four alert messages are easily
selected at the transmitter so that up to four different zones
can be monitored simultaneously.
The MURS Alert™ transmitter has five channels and 38 subchannels to choose from. This will help to eliminate interference
from other users. The MURS Alert™ operates on 6 AA alkaline batteries. The battery
life should be about one year under most conditions. The channels, sub-channels, and
alert zones are all easily selected by the user. In most instances, it should only take a
minute to make the changes.
The MURS Alert™ transmitter will have a range of up to several miles* back to the handheld or base station transceivers. This extended range will help monitor areas that have
been very difficult to monitor in the past. It will be of great value to businesses trying to
monitor customer traffic, security guards trying to monitor remote warehouses, farmers monitoring vacant farm sites, and hunters monitoring game trails. MURS Alert™ will
give you real time monitoring of any location that you choose.
*Actual range will vary depending on the local terrain.

radio services require a license, MURS is license-free.
When an alert signal is received from the MURS Alert™ transmitter, the BS will sound off with the voice of the alert signal,
and will also display an alert icon as a visual cue that a signal
has been received. In addition, the M538-BS is equipped
with a normally open (N/O) relay output. The relay can
be used to connect the base station to other existing systems such as alarm panels or doorbells. This has many different applications for small businesses, farmers, security guards or outdoorsmen. Anyone
who needs to have real time monitoring and two-way voice communication will benefit
from MURS.
The base station can also be used to communicate with the M538-HT hand-held radio.
This allows someone in the house or shop to be in direct contact with someone out in the
field. This allows a parent to keep track of the kids, or a supervisor to stay in touch with
their employees.
*Actual range will vary depending on the local terrain.

A Note on Cheap Systems:
“There is hardly a product of our culture that someone cannot make a little worse
and sell for a little less, and the one who puts price above all other considerations
is the natural prey of this man.”
John Ruskin (1819-1900)
Ruskin’s words were true in the 19th century, and they are equally true today.
We appreciate the time that you have invested in looking through our catalog.
You have probably looked at some of our competitors’ as well. You may have
noticed that there are some very cheap driveway alarms on the market right
now. Do not be confused. There is a great difference in quality between the
cheap systems and those by Dakota Alert. Many of the cheap systems are not
meant to be used outside, and will not hold up out in the elements. Many of
our current customers started out with cheap systems, but switched to Dakota
Alert after experiencing the frustration of having an unreliable system.
Dakota Alert is a leader in the driveway alarm industry. While there are many
Johnny-come-latelies out there, Dakota Alert is here for the long run. With our
new 3000 Series and MURS Alert™ technology, we will be setting the standard
for range and performance for years to come. We will not sacrifice quality in
an attempt to reduce price, and we do not expect our customers to settle for
anything but the best.
