For property owners, small businesses, and more, the Sensaphone 400 offers an easy, inexpensive way to monitor a remote facility. It can be installed in any clean indoor environment to monitor a variety of applications. The FGD-0400 has a built-in ability to monitor for power failures and to detect high sound levels. There are also four external inputs that can be connected to a variety of sensors to monitor temperature, water on the floor, humidity, and much more. One of the four inputs comes with a temperature sensor for monitoring temperature where the FGD-0400 is installed. When an alarm is detected, the Sensaphone 400 can notify up to four people by making voice phone calls. It will continue to make phone calls until someone responds to the call. The voice messages can be custom recorded, so you get to describe each alarm message that it speaks in your own voice. The phone interface includes a line seize feature so that extension phones are automatically disconnected when it needs to make an alarm phone call.
A built-in output relay is provided to switch an external device either automatically, or manually. You can use it to have a local light or siren trip when an alarm occurs, or even to set off a local alarm when the phone line is cut or unplugged. You can even use it to control a dual setback thermostat to change the temperature remotely. Also includes nonvolatile memory and a 24-hour battery backup with user installed batteries.
The default abilities of the FGD-0400 are:
- Can call to advise of a power outage
- Can call to advise of temperature extremes (you set an acceptable range and it calls you if the temperature goes outside of that range).
- Can call to advise of high-level sounds (as long as high sound is consistent for 5 full seconds)
- Unit can be called into for a status report at any time (unit recites time, current temperature, electricity status, alarm conditions, battery condition, sound level condition, and caller can listen to the room via the units built-in microphone).
- Detect temperature extremes in additional locations OTHER than where the Sensaphone is located (FGD-0100 for indoor, FGD-0101 for outdoor, basement, refrigerator, or freezer).
- Detect the presence of water
