Long Range Wireless Driveway Alert System
MURS Alert Series Wireless Driveway Alarms
The M538-BS is a base station ( Driveway Announcer and/or 2-way radio) MURS transceiver that will receive alert signals from any MURS Alert sensor / transmitter and it can also be used for two-way voice communications between other MURS transceivers. The Base Station receiver 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 Base Station receiver is capable of communicating over a wireless distance 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 (activated by a magnetic Vehicle Detector or Driveway Motion Sensor), the Base Station receiver will sound off with the automated voice of the alert signal channel/zone, 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 wireless voice communication will benefit from MURS.
The base station can also be used to communicate with the M538-HT hand-held receiver / 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.
There are 2 sensor / transmitter combinations available which have a maximum rated visual point-to point wireless distance of 2 miles!
. You can choose from the Driveway Motion Detector, the Vehicle Detector (Magnetic Driveway Vehicle Sensor). A summary of these 2 sensor choices is described in the next paragraph.
Driveway Motion Detector
These sensors will detect vehicles, people, and if you are out in the country, possibly deer. The sensor and transmitter are combined into one device (unit). These detector / sensors are generally the least expensive and easiest to install. You will find this is the most commonly used driveway sensor alarm
; therefore greatest selection of driveway alarm systems.
This type drive way sensor will detect vehicles only (magnetic detector of metal vehicle passing by). The sensor lies (or is buried) on one side of the driveway and has a wire that goes to the transmitter box. Generally the sensor and wire are buried the distance where you station / put the transmitter box. If buried, the detector / sensor are not visible at the driveway entrance. This system takes more effort to install and is generally the most expensive driveway security alarm
