If the sound was loud enough (such as a smoke detector) you would use a radio with voice activated capability (VOX) to broadcast the sound over MURS. You could also set the radio's time out timer to turn off the transmitter after 30 seconds so that it doesn't tie up your communications system during the whole incident. You also need to remember that any conversation close to the radio will cause it to transmit as well.

The Dakota Alert radios do not have VOX but the Puxing PX-777 PLUS radio does.

Great info. thanks Rob.
So this Puxing is the way to go then for that aspect of the system.  Its great it could pick up conversation-level sound too - putting one in an outbuilding then could inform me a few hundred feet away in the house of both a smoke detector going off and a break in there.  An intermittent sound like a smoke detector would still be picked up and be sent to another building/unit?
Is there a Puxing that is a base-station type of unit/not need batteries but could 'live' in the outbuilding and plug in? 

Thanks again...

If you set the VOX sensitivity high enough you should be able to hear any loud sounds in the vicinity of the radio.

Not yet but I am hoping to see more Puxing products receive their FCC certification so that they can be legally imported and used in the US. Right now only the PX-777 PLUS hand held is available.

I stumbled upon this a couple of months ago and found out that he had purchased his equipment from me.
