For customers who choose a traditional autodialer Sensaphone device that relies on a phone line to communicate and send alarms, an analog phone line—also known as “plain old telephone service” or a landline—may not be ideal. At first, the purchase of an analog phone line for your Sensaphone remote monitoring system seems to make sense: These lines are the standard support for phone, fax machines, and modems, as they have been for years. However, a landline can add a significant expense in addition to the up-front cost of purchasing your Sensaphone system.
Many Sensaphone customers have found that using wireless sensors to monitor a variety of applications can be much more convenient than going through the trouble of running wires to traditional hard wired sensors. However, successfully installing these systems can be tricky if you’re unfamiliar with how they work, so we’ve put together a list of tips and tricks to help your installation and usage of the system go easier.
If you own one of our remote environmental monitoring systems that depend on an Ethernet connection, you already know how simple it is to monitor and log data about crucial conditions in any location. Customers who wanted to monitor remote locations well out of reach of their Ethernet connection often had to get creative and run wires from the original Ethernet port to the location of choice, resulting in installation fees and the not-so-pretty sight of cables and wires snaking across a property. But thankfully, that’s changed.
Winter is upon us again, and it's time to gear up for the cold weather. Whether you love or hate the low temperatures, there’s something every homeowner should be concerned about: preventing frozen pipes.
Many businesses face the challenge of monitoring remote locations without access to a telephone landline or an internet connection. However, there are other options available for monitoring critical conditions at your facility.
Keeping electronics clean and dry is test best way to keep them working for years to come. Many consumer electronics such as a TV or radio wouldn't be expected to work for very long in many of the applications where Sensaphone devices are deployed. Sensaphone devices are designed to be rugged and reliable, but some models have limitations. That's why we suggest purchasing a model that is designed to work in your application.
