Dakota Alert BBA4000 Beam Monitoring and Alert System

Simple to install and requiring absolutely no wiring at all, the Dakota Alert BBT4000 is a solar powered wireless infrared break beam (photo beam) sensor designed to warn you of incoming visitors! Designed to avoid detection of small objects such as falling leaves or birds, the break beam sensor is a point to point sensor and will not be activated by any motion outside of the monitored beams. The sensors are powered by lithium ion batteries being recharged through the solar panels during the day for 24/7 security.

Easily mounted, the sensors can be placed high enough to avoid detection of dogs or other small animals, plus they use 'dual' break beam technology. This means that both beams need to be broken simultaneously for an alarm signal to be sent, reducing false alarms.

When the beams are broken, the BBA4000 transmitter sends a wireless signal up to 1 mile or 5280* to the included wireless receiver. The receiver plugs into a wall outlet and will play your choice from 12 different alert tones. At the same time, an indicator LED will light up on the receiver.

Select from these available tones:

  • Ding Dong (high)
  • Ding Dong (low)
  • Westminster
  • Fure Elise
  • Alarm/Siren
  • Coo Coo Clock
  • Bird Chirping
  • Twinkle Twinkle
  • William Tell
  • Cannon in D
  • Morning
  • Toreador March

The Dakota 4000 system is totally expandable. Up to four different zones, each with its own alert tone may be set up with 16 transmitters per zone. Need to set up a larger perimeter to monitor? By adding more BBT400 sensor pairs, each beam can be spread up to 300 feet apart. You can also add any other Dakota Alert 4000 transmitters.
