The Dakota Alert DCMA-2500 features a passive infrared (PIR) sensor that detects people, vehicles and large animals.
The alarm kit comes with 1 motion sensor, 1 receiver, 1 transformer, mounting hardware and installation instructions..
How It Works
When the passive infrared sensor detects a moving object, it will send a signal to the receiver. The receiver will notify you by playing a chime (Classical, Westminster Chime, Ding Dong, or Whistle)
For best results, the transmitter should be about three to four feet off the ground, and about twenty feet from the side of the drive.
In order to avoid false alarms, do not point the transmitter at streets or roads
The transmitter should remain immobile, so avoid mounting it on small diameter trees that move in the wind
The Dakota Alert DCMA-2500 features a reliable passive infrared (PIR) sensor that detects people, vehicles and large animals. It comes with a lot of useful features, such as flashing LEDs, exit delay and the ability to add more sensors in order to monitor several areas of your property. The Dakota Alert DCMA-2500 is a great alarm but I prefer the Guardline GL2000 because it has a better motion sensor.
