Our take on the Sensaphone® Temperature Alert

by Tara W.

Use this temperature alert with your Sensaphone remote monitoring system. It connects to the main unit using 22-gauge accessory wire (not included). Set high and low temperature limits by manually adjusting the built-in pointers — the Sensaphone system will call you if the temperature drops below or rises above the range you've specified. Connect multiple temperature alerts together to monitor more locations in your home or office.

Overview: The Sensaphone Temp Alert is a wall mount, mechanical temperature sensor used to detect if air temperature is too high or too low when connected to your Sensaphone monitoring system. The Sensaphone TA-1 Temp Alert has been designed for reliable monitoring of areas where high and low temperature limits are critical. Temp Alert measures temperatures from -30° to 130° F. You can set the temperature limits by selecting a high and low temperature setting and the Temp Alert will dial-out to your Sensaphone monitoring unit when the temperature reaches those limits. Alarm limits are adjustable from -30° to 130° F. The sensor will work with all Sensaphone products and many other alarm systems, telephone dialers, or remote warning devices.

Installation: The Sensaphone Temp Alert TA-1 should be mounted on a wall or other vertical surface in the area where temperature is to be monitored. Make sure it is clear of windows, doors, or heat source that could cause an inaccurate reading of air temperature. Connect the Temp Alert unit to your Sensaphone warning device by attaching an 18 gauge to 24 gauge single pair cable from the Temp Alert's front mounted terminals to an open zone on any alarm panel, telephone dialer, or wireless transmitter. More than one Temp Alert may be used on a single input of your Sensaphone monitoring system or other warning system. This is done by wiring the sensors in parallel. The Temp Alert does not come with wire for connection to your Sensaphone monitoring unit.

Note: When protecting a building against freeze damage, always install at least on Temp Alert on every level of the building. Do not use the TA-1 Temp Alert in a cooler or freezer. Frost build-up and moisture can cause the unit to malfunction.
