Fall leaves will soon create a golden-brown blanket that covers our yard and more. As seasons have changed so has “On the House”. We have weathered a major remodel and a new addition! We moved our website to a new host because we want our site to work at peak performance and speed. Unfortunately, the remodel brought with it several glitches and much confusion. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you and want to thank you for your patience. We still have several more repairs and upgrades to complete, but the system should remain very dependable. Our addition is wonderful. We now have our very own app at the Apple iTunes Store. The “On the House” app is up and running and raring to go. We invite you to visit the ITunes store and download the app -- it’s free. It’s a gift meant especially for you. Let us know how you like it. A special note to all the families that have been impacted by Hurricane Irene: our thoughts are with you for a quick recovery.

   Dakota Alert is a family operated business with roots deep in the South Dakota prairie. Years ago, we were interested in being able to know when someone was driving up our lane. This search led us to produce several different types of driveway alarms, from wireless motion detectors, weight sensors and more. All of our products were designed and developed to meet the needs of our customers, including products such as the DCMA-2500. It sets the standard for long-range wireless driveway alarms. The battery operated outdoor sensor will detect people or vehicles up to 50 feet away and then send a radio signal back to the receiver in the house up to half a mile away.

   The past years have been very exciting at Dakota Alert. We have had a great time talking with all our customers on the phone and meeting some in person. As good as the past has been, we look forward to the future with great anticipation. We are always seeking to improve on our product offerings with superior wireless ranges and simple do-it-yourself installations; we are setting the standard for wireless driveway alarms. Our wireless alarms can be used on any part of your property. Dakota Alert can be a simple and cost effective addition your home safety and security system.



Why WOOD You?

As fall approaches, leaves descend and begin to fill rain gutters … how is your home being protected for the upcoming months of unpredictable and oftentimes harsh weather?

Wood products pose perhaps the greatest risk in that they’re susceptible to rotting, warping and discoloration. Wood alternative products, however, give the appearance of real wood without any of the disadvantages, not to mention the preservation of precious natural resources. Moreover, these products provide significant sustainability, endurance and strength against harsh conditions. So with these alternative products, why “wood” you choose anything else?
