Dakota Alert creates long range motion detection devices for indoor and outdoor security. Dakota Alert products primarily benefit users with large properties, such as farms, office buildings or other properties with lots of ground to cover. Their products have provided users exceptional security coverage over wide areas thanks to long range RF transmissions that have increased in strength and scale as newer iterations were released. Currently, Dakota Alert offers two distinct product series: the MURS series and the 4000 series.

The Dakota Alert MURS Series includes radio transceivers and monitoring devices that detect movement via IR motion sensors, metal detecting sensors, and pressure sensitive cables. All of their devices can transmit or receive RF signals up to 2 miles away, allowing for monitoring of multiple areas across expansive properties. Up to 5 transmitting sensors can pair with a single base station. The base stations also act as two way radios and can communicate with over 30 other radio transceivers by switching between different frequency channels.

The 4000 Series is the latest Dakota Alert product series and includes updated features compared to the MURS series at the cost of a shorter transmission range. Dakota Alert 4000 series transmitters can connect to receivers up to 1 mile away, and 16 transmitters can connect to a single receiver. 4000 series transmitters include new additions such as break beam transmitters and door/window sensors with wireless doorbell, along with updated versions of existing MURS transmitters.
