Dakota Alert BBA-4K-PLUS Beam Monitoring and Alert System with Relay Output
If you need to have an output from your break beam sensor system, to connect to an alarm, external siren, strobe or SpotProtect SwitchSpot, this is the system for you. The included wireless receiver has a Form C Relay and 12VDC output that both trigger when the break beam is triggered.
Simple to install and requiring absolutely no wiring at all, the Dakota Alert BBA-4K-PLUS 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 BBA-4K-PLUS transmitter sends a wireless signal up to 1 mile* / 5280 feet to the included wireless receiver. The receiver plugs in to 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.
The Dakota 4000 system is totally expandable. Up to four different zones, each with its own alert tone may be set up with 4 transmitters per zone. You can also add additional sensors to set up a larger perimeter to monitor by adding additional BBT4000 sensor pairs. These can be used in the same system and each beam can be spread up to 300 feet apart. You can also add any other Dakota Alert 4000 transmitters.
The included RE-4K-PLUS receiver has two form C relay outputs and one 12 VDC output. These outputs can be used to connect to external chimes, sirens, strobes, alarms or other systems.
