Click n Dig ClickNDigF6 Item Finder

The F6 Item Finder includes one transmitter, three key ring receivers, and three thin receivers. Double-sided adhesive tape is included for attaching the thin receivers to remotes and other items. Batteries come installed in the transmitter and receivers and an extra battery set is included in each package.

This convenient and high quality gadget will beep the right device every time. Simply press and hold the color-coded button on the radio transmitter to find an item up to 60 feet away. The transmitter’s radio frequency penetrates through walls, cushions, and more, so the receivers will beep and flash whether they are in another room or lost deep under the couch. Now you never have to worry about losing your keys, wallet, remote controls, or cell phone again!

Send an Alert to Your Z-Wave Network Whenever Water, Freezing Temperatures, or a Low-Battery Condition is Detected

DynaQuip Controls ZWCFS1 Z-Wave WaterCop Wireless Water and Freeze Alarm

 

 

This Z-Wave enabled Wirelss Water and Freeze Alarm monitors your home 24-hours a day for leaking pipes, corroded water heaters, fixtures in bathrooms and laundry rooms, automatic water and ice dispensers, and other appliances that could cause water damage. Upon the detection of water or freezing temperatures, this device will send out a water leak alert on our Z-Wave nertwork. The ZWCFS1 sensors are much more effective at protecting your home against water damage when used with a WaterCop Z-Wave Automatic Shut-Off Valve (Sold Separately), but not needed. Using the ZWCFS1 that has not been included with a Z-Wave network will still notify you of leaks (audible alarm does not sound for temperature alerts) using the audible alarm. This unit is battery powered and will send an alert throughout the Z-Wave network at regular intervals when a low-battery condition, in addition, an audible “chirp” will sound to alert you of a low battery within the water and freeze alarm.

Built into this sensor is a 85 decibel siren. This siren will sound an 82 decibel audible alarm and will send an alert message to the Z-Wave network (If already included in a Z-Wave network). Pressing and performing a 2-second hold on the Program switch will clear the Water Alarm. When freezing temperatures are detected an alert message is sent to the Z-Wave network. No audible alert will occur. With a Z-Wave gateway or the appropriate web-enabled Z-Wave controller, you will be able to check the status of this sensor remotely as well as receive text message via smartphone or email messages whenever an alert is sent. Install this sensor under sinks, next to sump pumps, water heaters, laundry rooms, bathroom floor, storage area, garage, utility sink, vacation/recreation homes, boats, etc. Read More

I/O Linc - INSTEON Garage Door Control & Status Kit

Enhance the versatility of your INSTEON network using I/O Linc – INSTEON Garage Door Control & Status Kit to let you know if you accidentally left the garage door open and remotely close it if necessary. This kit takes advantage of the bi-directional capability of I/O Linc – INSTEON Low Voltage / Contact Closure Interface ( 1 In / 1 Out ), allowing it to send a command that indicates the status of your garage door and to receive a command that operates the garage door. Using INSTEON automation, you can link a button on a KeypadLinc as a status light to indicate whether or not your garage door is open and remotely open or close the garage door from other areas of your property using that button or another button on a KeypadLinc, SwitchLinc or RemoteLinc.

INSTEON: Receive an Alert When There is Excess Rain Build-Up

October 5, 2011 Leave a comment

I/O Linc - INSTEON Rain Sensor Kit
The rain sensor is designed for indoor or outdoor use in and around your home. The kit is great for monitoring rainfall and/or moisture levels in sensitive areas such as green houses, flower beds or lawns. Using the included mounting bracket and mounting hardware, the rain sensor can be placed anywhere where you would like to detect the accumulation of water. If you are using I/O Linc – INSTEON Low Voltage / Contact Closure Interface (4-Pack) to electronically control sprinklers via your INSTEON network, this rain sensor kit can trigger the sprinklers to automatically shut-off when it rains, saving water and money. Alternatively, it can be placed near the foundation of your home to help detect detrimental standing water and flooding; as soon as the accumulation of water starts, the rain sensor will trigger I/O Linc to turn any INSTEON controlled lights or appliances on or off, alerting you of the condition. Conserve water by having your sprinklers turn off automatically when it rains or stop catastrophic and expensive water damage as soon as it starts with I/O Linc – INSTEON Rain Sensor Kit; an easy-to-use solution for adding convenience and awareness to any INSTEON-controlled home.

How It Works
The rain sensor monitors the build-up of liquid (rain, water, etc.). When 5mm or more of liquid has been detected, the sensor triggers the included I/O Linc – INSTEON Low Voltage / Contact Closure Interface (1 In / 1 Out) to send an INSTEON signal. Simply link I/O Linc to a remote INSTEON device which can act as an alert for leaks. For example, you can have a KeypadLinc LED light up, have all the lights in your house flash, or activate a custom event in HouseLinc 2 – INSTEON Desktop Software to notify you of the concern.
