Customer Questions & Answers

Is there a temperature alarm which can be used with this system?

Asked by: Anonymous
It will alert you if the temp gets below 45 degrees where the unit is mounted. You can shut the temp control off if you prefer without affecting the water and power outage alarms. The water and power outage alarms cannot be shut off.

I want to monitor for low temperature. My phone is Vonage which uses cable modem. Will this work and is it difficult to hook up due to this?

Asked by: Guy1
This will work fine with a modem based telephone system. The connections are easy, the same as a standard telephone system. The only difference you should be aware of is that the warning system will not be able to call out if the power to the modem is out. The phone-out system has a battery backup but your modem may not.

I want to put this device in my living room to moniter temperature and

I also want to put a sensor in the basement for flooding. Do you have a sensor with a 14 foot long wire lead?
Asked by: Jaji
The remote water sensor is connected to the base unit with standard telephone style (RJ11) wire and connectors. If the included wire is not long enough you can use a telephone extension cord to make it longer (up to 100 feet).

How do i install since my phone is via cable said to buy a splitter??

Asked by: KAYKAY
Installation for a cable telephone connection is the same as a traditional land line. You can plug your telephone into the warning system base unit and plug the base unit into the wall jack or modem. All the cords are included, a splitter is not required.

Customer Reviews

Phone-Out Home Warning System with Water Sensor is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far, so good .... We experienced a water problem in our basement that caused $14K in damage. The reviews on water alarms w/ phone dial up are few and far between. I considered both the Reliance alarm and Ideal brand alarm. For no particular reason I went with the Reliance. The hook up took me so extra effort because we have no active phone line. Our phone is tied to our internet / cable line. I had not thought of this in advance. For my work around I used the RCA 940 wireless jack system. Both the Reliance and the RCA are working well so far. I have tested the system for water only and it works as described. I still want to test it to see if I can trigger it to dial the 2nd and 3rd contact numbers. I would recommend - I have not had long enough to rate excellent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked after only 3 days to let me know of a problem My brother in law has had the same Home Warning System for about 3 years and it has worked several times for him. I was surprised to find the same model number was still available. I installed the Home Warning Sensor on Tuesday and had a power outage on Friday night while were on vacation two states away and I got the call on my cell phone. I had my brothers number (who lives close to my house) for the 3rd contact so he could take care of the issue. Was very pleased that it worked as it was suppose to while away from home. When ordering on line, Home Depot had free shipping to home so I was able to get it to my house and installed before leaving on vacation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Dialer This dialer is an excellent choice for monitoring your sump pump as well as receiving notice that your home lost commercial electrical power. Works everytime. Once it senses high water or loss of commercial electrical power, it will out-dial in a matter of a few minutes to notify you. Also easy to install and program. Great product for any home with a sump pump and/or concerned about loss of electrical power!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from the call out low temperature feature gives me great peace of mind It was as advertised, easy to install and compact.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Is what I was looking for I have not tried the temperature alarm but the other two alarms work fine and so does the sequence of calling the three phone numbers. I did have a problem programming the phone numbers. I needed to hold the buttons till the indicated light response took place and not just listen for the tone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from If it works for a few years, I'll rate it higher We're gone from home months at a time and while our son checks on it, we recognize he can't be there every day. This seemed ideal. I ordered the unit online, had it sent to my son's business. He installed it with no problem & put both of our cell phone #'s in. I've never seen it so I can't send a picture but it sure seems like a great solution to our concerns

Rated 4 out of 5 by from freeze warning Don't know how it operates until a crisis occurs so, I hope it never happens. We have tested it and found it does the job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It is not as easy to install as I thought it would be. If you still have a desktop computer with DSL, The appliance has to be installed upstream of routers and computers. This limits where you place the controls.
