Protect and monitor your vacation home, cabin or cottage, remotely with the Sensaphone 400. This device will detect potential disastrous problems and monitor environmental conditions, calling out up to four different numbers when there is a change or abnormal condition; it also allows you to remotely control devices via your telephone or cell phone. It is simple to install, program and operate; no changes to standard electrical or telephone service is required.
Three sensors are built-in to the Sensaphone 400 to detect temperature, loud noise and power failures. With four hardwired inputs available, additional sensors can be added to monitor such things as a water leak, changes in humidity, outdoor temperature, glass breaking, motion detection and opening windows or doors. You can even monitor environmental conditions such as wind, rain and freezing outdoor temperatures. The Sensaphone offers the added ability to customize the voice message you will receive to describe each alarm. For further peace of mind, if a phone was accidentally left off the hook, the Sensaphone has a line-seize feature which will automatically re-establish a dial tone to make an outgoing alarm call. A built-in microphone allows you to call in and listen for live activity at any time.
The relay output on the Sensaphone 400 allows you to connect your thermostat so you can call in and set the temperature hours before you arrive, ensuring that the house is comfortable and cozy from the moment you walk in the door. This device is INSTEON compatible so you have the freedom to periodically call in to turn on lights and appliances, giving your home that lived in look while you're away. If you want to grant entry access to trusted neighbors when you aren't around, connect and electronic door strike to remotely lock and unlock your front door.
The Sensaphone 400 comes with a plug-in AC power supply, however, six C batteries (sold separately) are required for calling out in event of power failure.

Optional Input Sensors for the Sensaphone
