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.
