Doing so is made easy and convenient with the use of a Sensaphone 400. It is a monitoring system for your residence that is managed via your telephone. It will detect potential disastrous problems and monitor environmental conditions, calling out up to four different numbers when there is a change or abnormal condition; it also allows you to remotely control devices via your telephone or cell phone. It is simple to install, program and operate; no changes to standard electrical or telephone service is required.
There are three sensors built-in to the Sensaphone 400; these sensors detect temperature, loud noise and when there is a power failure. With four hardwired inputs available, additional sensors can be added to monitor such things as a water leak, changes in humidity, outdoor temperature, glass breaking, motion detection and opening windows or doors; you can even monitor environmental conditions such as wind, rain and freezing outdoor temperatures. The Sensaphone offers the added ability to customize the voice message you will receive to describe each alarm. For further peace of mind, if a phone was accidentally left off the hook, the Sensaphone has a line-seize feature which will automatically re-establish a dial tone to make an outgoing alarm call. You also have the ability to use a unique listen-in feature; a built-in a microphone allows you to call in and listen for live activity at any time.
