Essential Info

The Sensaphone 2800 is a powerful monitoring, alarm, and event logging system. It can monitor equipment and environmental conditions using four inputs for hardwired sensors and the ability to connect four wireless sensors from up to 300 feet away; add a wireless repeater to go up to 4000 feet away. It can be programmed to dial out to eight telephone numbers with a user-recordable voice message and has a built-in telephone line seizure. A variety of hardwired and wireless sensors types are available including: temperature, humidity, power failure, motion detection and water sensors. In addition to the wireless sensors, there are also two Wireless Interface modules that allow you to connect to existing equipment or sensors and transmit their status back to the 2800. The Sensaphone 2800 has scalable range capability, built-in power failure detection, sound level monitoring, and one relay output for manual or automatic control of a device. On the front of the unit are LED indicators to show the operating status. With the Sensaphone 2800, you can remotely monitor critical conditions at remote locations on your property without running wires.


What's Included

  • Sensaphone 2800 Wireless Monitoring and Alarm Notification System
  • Power Adapter
  • 3.4Ah Sealed Rechargeable Battery
  • Owner's Manual
  • More Info

    The unit is programmed using the built-in keypad and voice response menus. All programming is stored in nonvolatile memory so that all programming is retained even without power. The unit is capable of performing alarm event logging of all eight Zones, power, and sound. The event logging (history) is also stored in nonvolatile memory. A battery-backed real-time clock is also included to time-stamp logged events. The alarm event history can be heard through the built-in speaker or remotely over the telephone. A complete status report of all monitored conditions can also be heard simply by calling the 2800.

    Place you Sensors Almost Anywhere
    Most of the Sensaphone Wireless Sensors run on batteries for up to 3 years. You can literally just place a sensor on the wall and start monitoring right away. The 2800 will scan, find the sensor, self configure and do most of the work for you. All you need to do is to record a custom voice message and fill in a few parameters.

    Just like the other Sensaphone products, the 2800 uses the reliability of a standard phone line to make phone calls to the appropriate personnel to announce alarm conditions. Each monitoring condition, both wired and wireless, can have a custom voice message attached to it. Each message is recorded in your own voice for easy alarm identification. Alarm notification will repeat out to eight people until acknowledged.

    Self Diagnostics
    The Wireless Sensor Network is always being watched by the 2800. In addition to looking for alarms from the sensor values, it is also looking to make sure that each wireless sensor is fully functional and its batteries are full. If there are any problems with the wireless sensors, the 2800 will initiate a diagnostic alarm and notify the appropriate personnel immediately.

    Backup Battery
    The Sensaphone 2800 includes a 6V 3.4AH sealed lead-acid gelcell rechargeable battery for system back-up in the event of a power failure. The battery will provide approximately 16 hours of backup time. Actual backup time will depend upon the temperature, battery age, dialing activity, and state of the relay output. The battery is located behind the main panel.

    Telephone Line
    Connect the 2800's phone jack to a standard 2-wire analog phone line. The unit dials using pulse or tone, with loop start only. The 2800 will recognize ringer frequencies from 16 to 60Hz and will operate with all standard analog telephone systems that accept pulse or tone dialing.

    Line Seizure
    Line seizure gives the 2800 the ability to "seize" the telephone line when it needs to dial out. For example, if an emergency occurs which puts the 2800 in alarm mode, the unit will be able to dial out even if a telephone has been left off the hook. To the right of the LINE terminals is another set of terminals labeled EXT. These terminals can be used to share the line with other devices (telephone, fax machine, modem) and to give the 2800 priority in the event of an emergency. To make use of this feature you must have all the extension devices originate from the EXT terminals. Whenever the unit must make an alarm phone call, the unit will disconnect any current phone calls and seize the line for its own use. The unit will continue to seize the line until the alarm has been acknowledged.

    Use the 2800 to monitor multiple greenhouses without wires, multiple barns, coolers, freezers, or a wide variety of remote equipment. The new Sensaphone 2800 can be used anywhere you would use our other Sensaphone products. The 2800 just makes installation and expansion faster and easier. Extend your reach and monitor your critical remote locations with the new Sensaphone 2800.
