Many property owners being looking around for a way to be alerted to falling temperatures in their homes due to furnace failures or power outages this time of year. A freeze alarm or temperature alarm device is what is required to do this.
What is a freeze alarm?
A freeze alarm is a device that monitors the temperature in real time and alerts the user(s) if the temperature drops below a threshold, allowing the home owner to rectify the problem and save the property from freezing, pipes bursting etc.
What do I need to know when choosing my freeze alarm?
- What type of communication platform you’re going to have at your location. I.e. Landline, cellular coverage, Internet etc.
- How you want to be alerted. I.e. Phone call, text message, email. (This will in large part already be determined by the communication platform you have available.)
- Other conditions you may wish to monitor for now, or in the future. Examples are water leaks, intrusion, humidity etc.
