Essential Info

The Minotaur Engineering IRF1 Precision Refrigerator Failure Sensor for INSTEON I/O Linc provides a way to sense inordinately high temperatures, when the door is left open or the early failure of a residential refrigerator. It interfaces to a standard I/O Linc device (purchased separately) and triggers INSTEON devices based on user settings. Simply place the sensor in your refrigerator and carefully extend the wire leads out the refrigerator door through the weather stripping and attach the wire leads to an I/O Linc. From there, you can have the I/O Linc module send out INSTEON commands to other INSTEON controlled devices such as a LampLinc or an ApplianceLinc to turn lights on in the event that the refrigerator's temperature rises to an unacceptable level. The Refrigerator Failure Sensor can also be used to trigger other devices on your INSTEON network.

This product is also available in a Freezer Failure Sensor and Outdoor Freeze Detector.

    I put in my garage refrigerator. Works fine. It looks identical to my old X10 one from Smarthome, but it doesn't require a wall transformer which is a plus. Appears rugged since I dropped mine to the concrete floor while installing and it doesn't seem to be damaged at all. Overall, solid sensor and doesn't false alarm which is a goal of the INSTEON line of devices.

    My second one of these and works great. As advertised.

    Works great. The switch from X10 sensors is made easier because these sensors do not require power transformers. I don't know how they work, but install was a snap and worked perfectly out of the box. Remember if you have already used the I/O Linc device previously, you have to reset it before setting up this sensor. Besides that, install is strictly a two minute affair and testing proved it was good right away. Anyway, 5 star.
