Autopage BPS-4 Four-Sensor Car Back Up Parking System
Our roads today are more crowded than ever before, and cars are being designed with higher trunk lids. It’s more difficult to see out of your car, and at the same time, there are more potential things to hit. Don’t accidentally run over Junior’s tricycle just because you know it was there – add this sensor system to your car or truck to let you know there’s something back there! Wired to your vehicle’s back-up light circuit so it operates only while reversing. There are both visual and audible warnings: LEDs blink more rapidly and audible beeps become longer as your car gets closer to an object, beginning at about 5 feet. When you’re down to only about 1.5 feet, the tone and LEDs are continuous. Requires making four holes in your bumper to mount the sensors. Control unit mounts in the trunk, display unit inside the vehicle where it can be seen in your rearview mirror. No external power necessary, as the system is powered by your car’s wiring. Read more

Gas costs too much to waste any. Plug this little display into the OBD II plug of your car and monitor in real time what mileage you are getting. You can use the instant MPG number to modify your driving habits, with the goal of getting your average to as high a number as possible. There’s also a graphical representation of recent fuel mileage so you can see at a glance how you’re doing. Become a hypermiler – see how high you can get your mileage.

Linear-Logic SGE ScanGaugeE Fuel Economy GaugeSave as much as 33% on your fuel bill
You will have a real-time, instantaneous display of the MPG you are getting as you drive, and you can use the graph function to make it easier to see. When you can instantly see how your driving can affect your mileage, you can make adjustments and form new habits.

Track your fuel cost
Enter the price and gallons each time you fill up and the ScanGaugeE will calculate miles-per-gallon, gallons-per-hour, trip fuel used, trip fuel cost, and today’s fuel cost.

Monitor your carbon footprint
Displays your carbon output in real time. View current CO₂, trip CO₂, day’s total CO₂, and total CO₂ for this tank.

Simple installation
Installs in seconds with no tools! Plug the cable into your OBD II port, plug the display to the cable, and stick it with the Velcro™ to your steering column, console, or dashboard. No external power is required.

Customizable backlight
Choose from 7 preset colors, or mix your own from more than 60 combinations. Choose high, low, or off for the light intensity.

Scan tool (Check Engine codes)
A simple button press will display any diagnostic codes that caused your Check Engine to go on. Look up the code number in a service manual or on the internet so you will know what needs to be fixed. After repairs, use the ScanGaugeE to reset the light. If you do your own repairs, this could save you more than the cost of the ScanGaugeE using it just one time! Read more

Be Alerted to Dangerous Smoke in Your HVAC Ducts

APC SL-2000-N Duct-Mounted Smoke Detector
Your heating and air conditioning system does a great job of moving air throughout your home – but what if there’s a system malfunction or a fire? You don’t want your HVAC system spreading the smoke and combustion gasses to other areas, you want the system to shut down and notify you. This in-duct smoke detector will do just that. Using a sampling tube, it constantly tests the air inside your HVAC system, looking for smoke and combustion gasses. When everything is normal, there’s a flashing green LED on the unit. When it detects these harmful elements, it lights a red LED and energizes its two relay outputs. One can be connected to a strobe light or siren, and one can be used to shut down your HVAC system.

  • Detects smoke, other products of combustion in duct systems
  • Multi voltage: 24, 115, & 230VAC, 24VDC
  • Two NO/NC, one NO relay outputs
  • One NO/NC trouble relay output
  • LED indicators
  • Effective even at low flow velocity

Don’t Heat Your Vacation Home if the Windows Are Left Open

Jackson Systems LW-1 Lodge Watch Wireless Energy Management System
Did you accidentally leave a window open at your vacation home? Your heater might run all winter! This system disables your HVAC system when a monitored door or window is left open. Wireless transmitters use a magnetic switch to sense when a window is open. An NC relay contact opens after a 2-minute delay, shutting down the heater and saving you money. You should have a system in place, like a Sensaphone, to alert you as the temperature drops, to alert you to the possibility of frozen pipes. Add up to a total of 10 Transmitters to protect all potential openings.

  • Wireless system for easy installation
  • Battery-operated transmitters
  • Receiver operates on 24VAC from your HVAC system
  • Saves money
