So far, so good. Our 1/2 mile rated Dakota Alert Driveway Hose type is working from 1800 feet.
Eddie,my personal experience I would avoid the guardline products.Good luck on whatever you choose..Thank you. I appreciate you taking the plunge and buying it. After reading some of the issues with the Guardline units, the Dakota hose type sounds like what I'm wanting to get.
Lots of happy customers with the 1/4mi range unit. My guess is they made some very good improvements from the 500ft model for those pushing the envelopes.
That's what I have, MURS with magnetic about 700' from the house (receiver). I have my MURS transmitter on a small solar panel. It's been in place for years with no problems. I let the ants get into the MURS box and they trashed out the small circuit board. I bought another one but this time put two small mothballs in the box and no more ants. Very reliable system. I did try the other Dakota system that says 2k feet or something but with all my trees it wasn't very reliable.I have used a Dakota alert for years on my driveway and it as placed about 1/2 mile away from the house. Mine is the type with the magnetic loop and it is placed under the driveway in a piece of conduit. Senses only metallic objects. Even alerted for a rifle carried over it when I first installed it. I could adjust the sensitivity.
It is not visible to people going over or near it and no false animal trips.
That is a true statement.I am only speaking from my OWN experience with my 2 units from guardline (5oo ft model and 1/4 mile model) from my conversations guardlineLots of happy customers with the 1/4mi range unit. My guess is they made some very good improvements from the 500ft model for those pushing the envelopes.
