  • What's Included
  • Don't let unexpected visitors surprise you. The Wireless Probe Driveway Alert system sends instant alerts from the foot of your driveway when a car enters your property, but not large animals. Ideal for locations where there may be wildlife that causes false signals with a standard motion detecting system, the Wireless Probe Driveway Alert system includes a buried probe at the base of your driveway and sends a signal to the transmitter when a car is detected. The weatherproof transmitter operates on one 9-volt battery (sold separately) and is easily mounted on a tree or post near the driveway (mounting materials sold separately). The transmitter sends a radio signal back to the receiver, which can be placed in your home up to 600 feet away.



    The Wireless Probe Driveway Alert comes with 50 feet of direct burial wire connecting the probe to the exterior case. The probe is buried parallel to the driveway, and detects vehicles passing by within approximately 10 to 12 feet. The direct burial cable can be run to a tree or post nearby, where the transmitter box is located. When a vehicle drives by, the transmitter sends a signal to the receiver up to 600 feet away.

    The receiver plugs into a standard wall outlet and can be placed on a table or mounted on the wall (mounting materials sold separately). When the receiver gets a signal from the transmitter, one of four user-specified tones (Classical, Westminster Chime, Ding Dong, or Whistle) sounds for a few seconds. There is also a volume control, allowing you to set the sound to the desired level.

    Up to four different zones can be monitored by adding additional transmitters (sold separately). The transmitters can be programmed so they will each sound a different tone at the receiver. Extra receivers are available to be purchased separately — put them in several rooms in your house, so you'll always know the instant someone drives onto your property.

    A wireless alert system is also available with a motion detector. Its transmitter has an internal passive IR motion detector that can sense the presence of people or cars up to 80 feet away.

    Your description on the page I purchased it from said it had a 9 volt battery.
    This why I ordered this model.
    I have one like it all ready and was ordering one for my parents.
    When I received it is not the 9 volt variety.
    So your web page is wrong.
    Dakota Alert say they haven’t made the one with 9volt battery for over a year.

    We purchased this system a year ago, and are very satisfied. This new purchase was for a Christmas present for our son. Our friends also purchased a system, since we were so pleased with ours.

    The Driveway Alert works just fine. I get the Westminster Chimes alert sound which is very pleasant to hear.
    My neighbor, who is very handy with these types of Alert, in fact, he has one just like mine, installed the sensor underground. Compared to some of the other Alerts that I saw online, yours was very reasonably priced. I am satisfied with the Dakota Alert.

    This product was very easy to install, and it seems to be working great. It is expensive but worth it.

    This product was defective, so I called and received paperwork to send it back. I love this product when it works properly. This is the second one that I have purchased. My first one lasted 4 years and then just quit working.

    I installed this alert two years ago and it is working flawlessly. It is on its second 9v battery.
    It would be nice if the inside receiver/chime also had outputs to create scenes.

    This alert works as advertised and is easy to install.It could be better if the transmitter were a camouflaged color.The instruction pamphlet should explain better on using the dry contact,but someone with a little experience can see how to use it pretty easy.

    Installed this along with an EZsnsRF so it can talk to my ISY-99. Now when someone drives up while I'm at work I get a text message and if someone drives up at night the driveway lights turn on. Good stuff and simple to setup!

    The first Driveway Alert that I ordered did not work properly, and I had to return it. I was so glad that I tested it along side the driveway before burying the probe and wire. Smarthome was very good about the return and shipping out a new one. This one seems to be working fine. I find it hard to believe that these units are capable of the advertised range, but at shorter ranges they seem to work well.
