The M538-HT is a hand held Wireless MURS transceiver that will receive alert signals from the Probe Vehicle Sensing and InfraRed MURS driveway alarm transmitters and also can be used for two way voice communications between other MURS transceivers. The HT has 5 channels and 38 sub channels to help you communicate with other users. The M538-HT is powered by a 6 rechargeable AA batteries (included) that will last for about 40 hours on a charge. The HT is capable of communicating over distances of several miles*. The FCC also allows you to use MURS without a license. Although other radio services require a license, MURS is license free.
When an alert signal is received from the Probe Vehicle Sensing and/or InfraRed MURS driveway alarm transmitters the HT will sound off with the voice of the alert signal and will also display an alert icon as a visual display that an alert signal has been received. This has many different applications for small businesses, farms, security guards, outdoors men. Anyone who needs to have real time monitoring and two way voice communications will benefit from MURS.
Murs Two-way Handheld Station
A handheld transceiver that can receive an alert signal from the MURS Alert™ transmitter as well as two-way communications from other transceivers. Operates on 6 rechargeable Nickel Metal Hydride AA batteries (included).
Here is an example of how the MURS long range Drive Alert could be used around your home.
Zone 1 could be a MURS Vehicle Detector on the front driveway to detect vehicles arriving.
Zone 2 could be a MURS InfraRed Sensor on your front walkway to announce a person approaching your front door.
Zone 3 could be another MURS Vehicle Detector on the rear or side driveway to detect vehicles approaching in these areas.
Zone 4 could be another MURS InfraRed Sensor used to detect people movement around your pool or yard.
Here is an example of how the MURS long range Drive Alert could be used around your business.
Zone 1 could be a MURS Vehicle Detector on the front driveway to detect customers and couriers arriving.
Zone 2 could be a MURS InfraRed Sensor at the counter area or front desk.
Zone 3 could be another MURS InfraRed Sensor in the warehouse to warn you of someone in a restricted area.

MURS (Multi-Use Radio Service) - Was authorized by the FCC in November of 2000 as a private, two-way voice or data communications service for personal or business activities. The five MURS channels are available on a shared basis only. No channels are assigned on an exclusive basis, therefore it is up to the users to cooperate in the channel selection to help avoid interference. FCC rules do allow for the use of external antennas with MURS.
Range - You will notice that we describe the range of the MURS Drive Alert systems as several miles. While this might sound a little vague, we are not trying to deceive. The range will be dependent on your local surroundings. We have tested units over flat ground to ranges of about 4 miles. However, if you are in an urban area with many tall buildings, your range may be cut down significantly.
Who can use MURS? - No license is needed. A person is authorized by rule to operate a MURS radio providing he or she is not a representative of a foreign government. Also, MURS can be used anywhere in the US except aboard an aircraft in flight.
