Dakota MURS Probe Sensor and Basestation Receiver Kit - MAPS BS Kit
The BS kit consists of one MURS Alert probe sensor and one M538-BS base station transceiver. This kit is ideal for use in fixed locations, such as homes, shops, or offices.
MAPS MURS Alert Probe Sensor
The MURS Alert Probe Sensor is a long-range wireless driveway alarm that will detect vehicles only. It combines the features of the vehicle sensor drive alert with our MURS Alert technology. The MURS Probe is very reliable and will not give false signals from large animals or other sources. When the MURS Alert detects a vehicle, it will send an alert signal to either the M538-BS or M538-HT transceivers. The alert signal will be in spoken English and twice repeats the phrase "Alert Zone One," "Alert Zone Two," "Alert Zone Three," or "Alert Zone Four." The four alert messages are easily selected at the transmitter, so that up to four different zones can be monitored simultaneously.
The MURS Alert Probe Sensor has five channels and 38 sub-channels to choose from. This will help to eliminate interference from other users. The MURS Probe operates on 6 AA alkaline batteries. The battery life should be about six to twelve months under most conditions. The channels, sub-channels, and alert zones are all easily selected by the user. The probe is connected to the transmitter box with 50' of direct burial cable.
The MURS transmitter will have a range of up to several miles to the hand-held or base station transceivers. This extended range will help monitor areas that have been very difficult to monitor in the past. It will be of great value to businesses monitoring customer traffic, security guards trying to monitor remote warehouses, and farmers monitoring vacant farm sites.
MURS Alert M538-BS Two-Way Base Station Radio
The M538-BS is a base station MURS transceiver that will receive alert signals from the MURS Alert transmitter and also can be used for two-way voice communications between other MURS transceivers. The BS has five channels and 38 sub channels to help you communicate with other users. The M538-BS is powered by a plug-in transformer. The BS is capable of communicating over distances of several miles.* The FCC also allows you to use MURS without a license. Although other radio services require a license, MURS is license-free.
When an alert signal is received from the MURS Alert transmitter, the BS will sound off with the voice of the alert signal, and will also display an alert icon as a visual cue that a signal has been received. In addition, the M538-BS is equipped with a normally open (N/O) relay output. The relay can be used to connect the base station to other existing systems such as alarm panels or doorbells. This has many different applications for small businesses, farmers, security guards or outdoorsmen. Anyone who needs to have real time monitoring and two-way voice communication will benefit from MURS.
The base station can also be used to communicate with the M538-HT hand-held radio. This allows someone in the house or shop to be in direct contact with someone out in the field. This allows a parent to keep track of the kids, or a supervisor to stay in touch with their employees.
*Actual range will vary depending on the local terrain.
