With this Wireless Probe Drive Alert 3000 alarm system say goodbye to false alarms that may be caused by intrusive deer, birds or dogs! This probe sensor has a long range wireless transmitter reaching up to 600’, and detects metal only. When the probe detects a vehicle a signal is sent to the wireless transmitter box, sending a wireless signal to the driveway chime receiver!
This probe sensor is capable of detecting vehicles within an approximate 10-12’ range! When vehicles or a vehicle pass by a signal is sent to the Dakota Alert WR 3000 Receiver where the built in chime tone is then activated. Designed for exterior locations and capable of monitoring up to four (4) zones with additional transmitters, this receiver is designed to notify you of incoming vehicles! Additionally, our receiver comes equipped with four (4) form “C” output relays and one (1) 12VDC output that will activate when a signal is received.

Installed this over 2 years ago. It's been great! Replaced an older wired system that would chime every time there was a storm. Probe/transmitter is about 650' from my house and it works every time. Never a false alarm unless the battery needs replaced. Battery lasts 6-7 months consistently. As usual, Absolute Automation has the best prices, and best service out there.

This really only detects cars as we have it beside my horse pasture and it never detects the horses. Poor range though..it says 600' but we had to move it to 175' from the house before it worked reliably..generally happy with it but I wish I had got the 1/2 mile system they sell.
