I remember Jack Spiraco (survival podcast) talking about motion sensors or the MURS radio system. It's been 5 years since I listened to his podcast, but it's somewhere to start.

Below is a link to the system that Jack Spirko has mentioned on his show. I have also seen articles on the SurvivalBlog about these sensors. I have not used them myself but I have heard and read a lot of good things about them. They make several sensors for detecting different types of activity such as motion or pressure.

Enjoy!

Very cool...looks like a lot of options.

Largely mixed reviews on quality by a quick browse. Probably a little heavy to lug out to a remote camp, but for a pre-stocked BOL or with suitable transportation those seem like a great thing to have.

Even just for monitoring game in the area they could be handy, let alone marauding cannibals.

a bit lower cost driveway alert system at Home Depot $59.95 Mighty Mule Model FM231WB

May have less features than the Dakota one linked in the previous post.

doesn't seem quite as useful, an IR motion sensor with a decent range that could transmit to an existing radio over a good distance seems ideal for a remote camp/BOL. at least one "driveway" unit could be very useful as well, but 400ft (advertised) range doesn't give you much heads up, although the Mighty Mule does seem to have overall better reviews then the Dakota ones.

Several reviews seem to report the devices in general have poor battery life, which isn't terribly surprising. Don't know if there is really anyway around that, except maybe to splice in an external battery, like an Anker or something.

Ideally you could have a case of different sensors that all talked to one base station, and someone could just seed them around your location when you stopped for the night/a few days.

There's space inside the Dakota Alert enclosure for additional batteries if you didn't want to use an external one, they'll operate in a range of about 7.5V to 14.8VDC so finding a battery/holder that's both the right size and puts out exactly 9V isn't mandatory. Or use an external one like you said, we've been running two of them off external 12V (automotive type) batteries for a couple years now without any problems.

If you're considering them there's an article here with a description of how they work, some tweaks/hacks, and how to troubleshoot problems with them. Modifying one to be trip wire activated is pretty easy and explained in the article for example.

Part of the range problem is the junky antennas that may be part of the mandated specs. These things operate on VHF MURS frequencies so replacing the base unit receive antenna with a higher gain model would be easy enough and should not violate FCC regulations. I've not read the regulations in detail but saw only max power and antenna height restrictions.

Image

MURS comprises the following five frequencies:

1 151.820 MHz 11.25 kHz N/A
2 151.880 MHz 11.25 kHz N/A
3 151.940 MHz 11.25 kHz N/A
4 154.570 MHz 20.00 kHz Blue Dot
5 154.600 MHz 20.00 kHz Green Dot


Blog article where author got 330 foot range http://modernsurvivalblog.com/security/ ... se-alarms/

Restrictions

Transmitter power output is limited to 2 watts.
The highest point of any MURS antenna must not be more than 18.3 meters (60 feet) above the ground or 6.10 meters (20.0 feet) above the highest point of the structure to which it is mounted, whichever is higher

The Mighty Mule (the FM231 model anyway) operates on 433.92 MHz, under FCC Part 15 for low power (re: a few milliwatts maybe) devices like key fobs, garage door openers, cordless phones, etc. https://fccid.io/I6HGTOFM231 100 yards or so range is about it.

Interesting! Thanks! The blog I referenced was getting just over 100 yards distance so it looks like the Mighty Mule meets expectations. Adding a higher gain base station antenna might be the trick since Part 15 limits changes to the transmitter antenna.

This is a low cost approach that can be tweaked for 433 MHz

Camp Alert Perimeter Security System & Survival Signaling System

CAPSS3 is a complete survival emergency system for hunters, campers, hikers, and fishermen. It works as a perimeter security system that will alert you if anyone or an animal wanders into your camp ground. The alarm module can be used as an audible emergency device to let passers-by know you need help. The alarm module has bright flashing blue LEDs that can be used as a signaling device at night. It also has a red LED flashlight built in for map reading that will not destroy your night vision. The CAPSS3™ kit comes with two APALS® (All Purpose Adhesive Light Strips). The APALS® have a polished aluminum front that can be used as a small signaling mirror in the daytime.
