The Temperature Sensor triggers an alarm when your home’s temperature goes above or below the temperature range that you set. If the Temperature Sensor detects temperatures outside of the designated range your Base Station will sound the alarm. If you are subscribed to professional monitoring you will also receive a call from the monitoring company as well informing you of the change in temperature.

To install your Temperature Sensor remove the white battery activation strip hanging from the battery compartment. Next, remove the liner from the adhesive strip located on the Sensor’s bracket, and adhere it to the wall. Press and hold the Sensor for 30 seconds to ensure it is firmly attached to the wall. If you would prefer a more secure installation of your Temperature Sensor slide it up off of its bracket and use the included screws to permanently attach the bracket to a surface. Once you have finished, slide the Sensor back onto its bracket, and it is installed.

We recommend installing your Temperature Sensor near the thermostat so that it can keep tabs on the temperature in your home, or near plumbing that is prone to freezing.
