To select the proper channel, locate SW1 (#1 in image) and set it to the appropriate channel. B. Sub Channel (CTCSS) selection: To select the proper CTCSS, locate SW2 (#2 in image) and SW3 (#3 in image). SW2 […]
Often this is the case, but it’s also important to consider whether you need the most expensive system. The best example of this is with our wireless driveway alarm systems, the MURS units are generally the most expensive and have by far the longest wireless range. However in terms of reliability, sophistication etc. they are […]
1. Double check battery levels, each should be reading 3.0 or above. 2. Check and increase sensitivity at transmitter box. 3. Do “shovel” test as discussed, remember to leave approx. 30 second windows between activation’s (as indicated by LED in transmitter). 4. Every time the LED activates, the Basestations (as long as it has been […]
My MURS M538HT Radio is experiencing above average static and reads RX in the read out when the static is happening. How can I fix this?
One thing that could be happening with this unit is that it is picking up interference from another MURS unit in the area. This particular unit could be a little more sensitive than the other units and is picking up the carrier on a signal that is to weak to receive the full transmission. To […]
The Murs Basestation M538BS has a NO dry contact relay on it which can be set to close when the M538BS receives an alert signal from a MURS transmitter. For this to happen the M538BS and whichever MURS transmitter you are using both need to be set to Channel 1 Sub Channel 1.
I am looking for a driveway alarm but have no idea which one would be the best one for our situation. We live along a busy road and have determined through research that I do not want an alarm that is buried in the ground. Our house is 3/10ths of a mile from the road. I want the alarm to be at the end of the driveway near the road so I can hear the chime and have time to look out the window to see who’s coming. Can you suggest a couple models? Thank you for your help!
With that sort of wireless range (3/10ths of a mile so about 2000 feet) the only system I feel would have a powerful enough and reliable enough wireless transmission range for you is the MURSBSKIT – http://www.absoluteautomation.com/dakotaalert/mursir/ – it should work very well for you.
The Multi-Use Radio Service is a low power, short range VHF Citizens Band service in the 150 MHz band free to use without needing a license. All radios that operate on this band will work together.
My MURS Basestation and/or Handheld Receiver are playing static instead of the voice alert. What causes this?
The MURS Systems store the audible voice alert on the transmitter boards located inside the driveway SENSORS transmitter box. If every time the sensor is activated the receiver sounds static instead of the voice alert it is the sign of a weak wireless signal arriving at the receiver. The two most common causes of this […]
Please view the below diagram to see how to wire a siren to a (normally open) relay or a driveway alarm that has a DRY CONTACT (no voltage) output. This uses a plug-in power supply of the correct voltage, sufficient to power the siren. If you are using the voltage output of a driveway alarm […]
