Essential Info

The Minotaur Engineering IFD1 Precision Freeze Detector for INSTEON I/O Linc provides a way to sense inordinately low temperatures, and turns devices off to prevent damage or on to protect important systems. It interfaces to a standard I/O Linc device (purchased separately) and triggers INSTEON devices based on user settings. Simply place the sensor in the area you wish to protect and extend 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 temperature drops to an unacceptable level. The Freeze Detector can also be used to trigger other devices on your INSTEON network to avoid ice, broken irrigation systems, broken pipes, interiors, roofs, water containers, sinks, toilets, plants, and uncomfortable temperatures.

This product is also available in a Freezer Failure Sensor and Refrigerator Failure Sensor

    I got this for a second home in a cold climate. Appears rugged and precise from what I have seen. It is the best Insteon sensor I have. Hook up was easier than the X-10 devices and did not need a power connection. No false triggers that I have noticed to date. I have a digital temp sensor there as well and they track very closely so I have confidence in it. I should get a finders fee from Smarthome, I have had several neighbors come by to see how I have done this....:-
