Dakota Alert DCPA-4K-PLUS Magnetic Vehicle Probe Wireless Driveway Alarm with Relay
The DCPA-4K-PLUS offers the same great features as the DCPA4000 while adding a 12VDC output and two relay outputs that can be used to trigger strobes, sirens or additional remote chimes. Plus they can also be used to connect to an alarm system or the SWITCHSPOT WiFI email/text alert device.
Don't get caught off guard when vehicles approach your home or business. Perfect for protecting driveways, drive-thru, service centres, farms and property entrances.
The Dakota Alert DCPA-4K-PLUS driveway alarm system uses a magnetic probe that senses the change in the magnetic field (sensing range of approx. 10-12 ft) caused by large moving metal objects like cars, trucks and heavy equipment. The magnetic vehicle probe is buried alongside or under the driveway and a wire is run to the wireless transmitter that can mount on a wall, tree or pole. When a vehicle drives through the detection area, the wireless transmitter will send a signal to the receiver which will play a sound and light up the LED indicator light.
Get creative and use the sensor to alert you to garbage trucks, farm vehicles or even moving garbage bins and lids for commercial garbage bins.
The DCPA-4K-PLUS has a long wireless range of up to 1 mile (5280feet)* from the transmitter to the receiver.
