The FA-B-CCA FreezeAlarm from Control Products, Inc. is the most affordable and reliable way to know about critical changes in temperature before it’s too late. Whether the mercury is dropping or rising, FreezeAlarm can help protect your home, cabin, business, greenhouse, and even the family pet.
Control Products has produced freeze protection products for over 20 years. Their basic Freeze Alarm is a top selling item and is trusted by tens of thousands of homeowners to monitor the temperature of their property while they are away. There is no monthly monitoring fee and set-up takes only a few minutes.
Here’s how it works - The FreezeAlarm (with temperature sensor inside the unit)will automatically call one telephone number when the temperature drops below 45°F (7°C) and play a factory recorded alarm message. The unit can call any number you choose such as a cell phone, voicemail, or answering machine. It will continuously call every 15 minutes or 2 hours (your preference) until you acknowledge the alarm by calling back. When the FreezeAlarm answers, you’ll hear a message play. When you hear the message, the unit will then stop calling you because it now knows you have acknowledged the alarm. If the temperature in the monitored location rises above 45°F (7°C) again, the alarm will reset and be ready to call you should the temperature drop in the future. (The number of rings the unit answers on is controlled by a switch setting in the device that is selected by the user during set-up.)
On the other hand, the FreezeAlarm can monitor for a rise in temperature as well. The unit is set to call you if the temperature rises above 85°F (29°C). This means you can protect elderly loved-ones or pets at home from rising temperatures when the air conditioning fails. You can also protect your computer equipment or greenhouse from the sweltering heat.
When it comes to installation, that is as simple as plugging in a phone line. The basic Freeze Alarm works on an existing, standard, single telephone line and on most new digital telephone systems such as DSL, VOIP, and cable. This will not interfere with your existing telephone service in any way.
