"Because Dakota uses the same receiver for the PIR and Magnetometer based driveway alarm kits, I have a unique set up I thought I would share with you. I have a long driveway I want alerts for. I only want to detect cars coming into my driveway so I have the WPA-3000. I also have single pathway that leads down to a tractor and bard. I put the PIR based unit along the trail. Whenever movement is detected along the walk way, I get an alert sent to the same receiver as the driveway alarm unit. It works great and gives us some peace of mind." - John Q., Allen, TX
