  • The HS-700 HomeSitter from Protected Home is the lowest cost multi-functional home monitoring system on the market! The HomeSitter will sound an audible alarm and call up to three telephone numbers to protect your home from damage caused by temperature extremes, water leaks or power failures. Set-up takes just a few minutes and there are no monitoring fees or installation costs! All you need is a phone line and a power outlet.

    The HomeSitter automatically calls out to notify you if there is a drop in temperature (below 45°F/7°C) or a rise in temperature (above 85°F/29°C). This temperature alarm feature can help you prevent frozen/burst pipes due to furnace failure or prevent mildew and humidity damage when an air conditioner stops working in the summertime heat.

    Included with the HomeSitter is a remote wired water sensor that can be placed in the basement, near a water heater, below the kitchen sink, washing machine, or inside your sump pump. Early detection of water leaks with a water alarm can save many thousands of dollars in property damage!

    The HomeSitter power failure alarm will also notify you of a power outage at your monitored property. Knowing the power is out enables you to take action before expensive consequences can occur. You can even select how long the power is out before the unit calls to avoid nuisance calls.

    The HomeSitter offers great peace of mind and protection for your home and requires no installation or monitoring fees! When the HomeSitter calls, it plays an easy to understand message, clearly stating what type of problem (temperature, water or power) is occurring at your monitored location. The HomeSitter will continue to call until the alarm is acknowledged and cancelled.

    The HomeSitter requires a standard telephone line or digital telephone service (digital cable phone service, VOIP, DSL phone service). Two (2) AA back-up batteries are required, but not included.


  • Power requirements:
    Two power sources: 110VAC power adapter voltage stepped down to
    6VDC, 200mA; 2 AA batteries for backup power (alkaline or lithium batteries, not provided) CHANGE BATTERIES after a prolonged AC power failure or yearly.
    Temperature monitoring (DIP switch selectable): Temperature drops below 45° F (7° C) or temperature rises above 85° F (34° C)
    Humidity: 95%
    Dimensions: 5.8in L, 3.5in W, 1.5in H (147.3mm, 88.9mm, 38.1mm)

    Excellent product.-- solved several problems for me Review by Charlie Schmid
    Excellent product.-- solved several problems for me
    Rating

    The HS 700 solves several big problems for me. My sump pump runs a lot so if a failure went unnoticed we could have a lot of water damage. I have a separate battery-powered backup pump but the battery will not last forever. Because we live in a northern climate the freezing of pipes is also a potential problem if the furnace should fail. The HS 700 will call my cell phone and two others to alert me to rising water in the sump (pump failure), a power failure, water under the water heater, a temperature lower than 45 degrees Fahrenheit in the house, or the need to replace the two AA batteries in the alarm itself.
    The sensor that comes with the alarm in which the circuit is closed by water connecting two contacts seems best suited for use near a water heater rather than in a perpetually damp sump. For the sump sensor I purchased separately a dual-float switch (part number: Float-DL) from Glentronics, the seller of the Basement Watchdog line of backup sump pumps, for $20 plus shipping. You see the switch advertised with a controller but if you call them they will sell the float switch separately. The wiring of both the sump and water heater sensors was extended with 18 gauge wire and spliced into the wire leading to the alarm with wire nuts. Be certain to get a float switch like the Float-DL in which the rising of the float closes the circuit so that current from the alarm can pass through; some float switches open the circuit as the float rises.
    I have tested the alarm for all possible failures except high temperature though the test of the water heater leak sensor was done with wire, not water. With respect to temperature you have to choose whether you want a high temperature or low temperature alarm – neither temperature is adjustable. There are other choices to be made as well. For example, while the alarm calls immediately when other failures are sensed, a power failure does not result in an alarm until after 15 or 60 minutes (you choose) so you are not bothered by momentary outages. The alarm has performed flawlessly in all tests. It calls with an easily understood message regarding each failure and has excellent features for interrogating and cancelling the alarm by phone.
    The alarm should be used with a surge suppressor. From my testing experience I suggest that battery life expectancy of 12 hours is overly optimistic. We'll see how it performs over time but it appears to be a superb product.

    Love the product. Terrific idea. I extended the water leak sensor wire by > 50 feet of speaker wire and it still works.

    Easy to install and use. Simple solution to frozen pipes caused by a malfunctioning boiler.

    Product has tested out to perform as promoted in all 3 failure modes. This includes dial-out operation over cable system with no problem. GREAT tool to give much comfort while away from home. Recommended to others.

    Just what we needed. Monitors basement sump pump tank for overflow, monitors electric failure at sump pump outlet, and monitors low temperature in case of furnace failure.

    You can set a DIP switch so that short power failures don't triger warnings - set ours to 90 minute electric failure before alarm. Shorter time can be set.

    Will dial three phone numbers until response and you can test dial each number.

    I ran a phone line from my DSL modem about 20 feet through some stick-on plastic conduit. Works great and looks great.

    I mounted unit at eye level on the wall in a $3 notepad wall holder. I think it is an excellent device, with the only "con" being no wall mount screw slot on the back.

    The water sensor cable length was more than adequate, the manual sys it is only 3' but mine was 10'-12' feet, and you can easily add wire to up to 100' in length.

    I think it is a great device!

    Sensor wires are so short you have to mount the dialer/controller within two feet of the floor to reach. System will not work when plugged into a cable modem for phone access. Great idea, but doesn't work well.

    Great idea but the unit did not perform as advertised. (High temp was 72 instead of 84 degrees resulting in false alarms.)
