The TA-900 TempAlarm offers the best protection for your home, cabin or business and provides the convenience of remote temperature monitoring.-This device is able to call up to 3 different telephone numbers in the event that the temperature gets to be too low, too high, or even if the power goes out within your properties, as well as provide an audible alarm of 90 decibels which can alert building occupants or others nearby. This alarm is able to call up to three telephone numbers, so if you personally miss this important call others you know can be notified. If no one can be reached, the system will make repeated calls until the alarm is acknowledged, and can even leave voicemail and answering machine messages for those unable to pick up.
You can have full control of your system remotely, as its Quick Status Check feature allows you to check current temperature, power and back-up battery status with a quick phone call. All menu prompts and alarm messages are in English. Conveniently, the system also allows you to attach relay contacts, which means that the TA-900 can be connected to a visual alarm, security system, remote alarm, etc. So when the temperature goes out of range, the system will close those relay contacts and set off the integrated additional systems.
