Help protect your property from damage with monitored low temperature sensors. These sensors can detect if the temperature within your home or business dips too low, giving you the opportunity to call a contractor to fix your heating issue before pipes start to freeze or burst. If you operate a food service or agriculture business, your sensors can let you know if the temperature in your fridge, freezer, greenhouse, or barn starts to deviate from the required level. Frequent testing is critical to ensuring that these sensors work when you need them.
Put your system on test mode by calling the monitoring station.
If your sensor is set to detect low temperatures, cool it down by either placing it in the freezer for a few minutes (if wireless) , or placing an ice pack against the sensor.
If your sensor is set to detect warm temperatures for example, if you use it to monitor a freezer, briefly remove it from the freezer to allow it to warm up (if wireless), or place a microwaveable heating pad on the sensor to speed up the test.
If your sensors are working, you should hear your siren or keypad sound an audible alert (however, if you’re set up for silent reporting, you won’t hear the alarm, so keep your smartphone with you to check for the app notification); if you don’t hear or see an alert, your sensor may need service.
Be sure to return your sensors to their original positions once you’ve finished testing them, and call the monitoring station to take your system off test mode.
