Chapter 1: Introduction
CHAPTER 1
INTRODUCTION
The Sensaphone model 4100 is an electronic watchman. It monitors specific environmental
and operating conditions at your business facility or remote property. The model 4100 is
equipped with sensors that automatically monitor the following conditions:
• AC electrical power—checks for power failure and records the total amount of time the
power was off.
• High/low temperature
• High sound levels—such as smoke or burglar alarms.
• Battery—the condition of its battery back-up.
Dry contact sensors can be wired to the inputs to monitor a variety of conditions including:
•
•
•
•
•
Intrusion into premises
Water leaks or floods
Temperature in remote locations
Humidity
Equipment operation
When an alarm condition occurs, the Sensaphone® Model 4100 will call out to 4 user-programmed phone numbers to advise key personnel of the condition. You may also call in to the
unit at any time to obtain a status report. The unit works with either pulse or touch-tone phone
systems. There is an output terminal on the 4100 that can be used in combination with the
FGD-0012 Output Controller to activate an alarm horn or light. Whenever an alarm condition
occurs, the alarm horn/light will be activated.
The Sensaphone Model 4100 has nonvolatile memory. When AC power and the battery
backup fail, the unit will still retain all of its programmed parameters, except for the time, the
security code, and the power-off time accumulator.
ABOUT THIS MANUAL
This manual describes the features and operation of the Sensaphone model 4100. It provides
explanations, illustrations, and examples to simplify its installation and programming.
Read this manual over at least once and experiment with the examples before starting your
actual programming.

Sensaphone® Model 4100 Instruction Manual
POWER SURGE PROTECTION
The Sensaphone® 4100 can be damaged by power surges and lightning through the
telephone line and the 110 VAC power supply. Although the Model 4100 has built-in
surge protection, we recommend that additional protection be obtained for the unit
and for any electronic equipment that is attached to your power supply and telephone
lines. Power surge protection is especially important if you live in a lightning-prone
area. The ISOTEL Surge Protector Model IB-4 is available through Phonetics. See
Appendix B.
POWER SUPPLY AND BACKUP BATTERY
The 4100 is provided with an AC power transformer. After mounting the unit, plug the
transformer into any standard 110 VAC outlet. The unit will say "Hello" and state any
present alarms.
The Model 4100 is equipped with a replaceable rechargeable 2.2 Amp-hour gel-cell
electrolyte battery. The battery is recharged whenever the AC transformer is plugged
into an outlet and the battery jumper is installed on terminals 15 and 16 (see below).
Complete recharge will take approximately 48 hours. During that interval, a status
report may give the "Battery Condition Low" alarm message.
BATTERY CONNECTION
A metal jumper is attached to terminal 16 (marked BATTERY) and the screw below it.
See Figure 2A. Remove the metal jumper and attach it to both BATTERY terminal
screws (terminals 15 and 16). See Figure 2B. This will connect the rechargeable
battery to the 4100. When the unit is in operation, this jumper must be connected to
terminals 15 and 16 to ensure battery backup during a power failure.

Chapter 2: Installation
TURNING THE MODEL 4100 ON
The ON and OFF keys on the Model 4100 keypad are used to activate and deactivate
the unit. To turn the unit ON, press the ON key. The system ON light will begin to
glow. The unit will say “Hello,” or beep if it is already on.
When the unit is ON, it is able to receive incoming calls and automatically dial out in
the event of an alarm on one of the monitored conditions. The red light will glow as
long as the unit is on.
When you press OFF, the 4100 will say “Have a good day,” and the system ON light
will stop glowing. All functions are disabled except the battery backup. The batteries
will still discharge if the AC transformer is unplugged from the 110 VAC outlet.
It is not recommended that the unit be turned OFF unless absolutely necessary. (See
”Disconnecting the Model 4100” later in this chapter.) Full power is still consumed by
the unit even though it cannot be programmed or interrogated. Also, the unit cannot
dial out with an alarm.
STRAIN RELIEF
A strain relief clamp is provided in the Model 4100 enclosure to prevent wiring from
being pulled from the circuit board or damaged when passing through the enclosure.
To use the strain relief, thread wires through the clamp and clear rubber bushing.
Position the bushing in the clamp and tighten the screws on either side so that the
wiring does not move. See figure 2:

Figure 2: Strain relief clamp
PHONE LINE INSTALLATION
The Sensaphone® Model 4100 will operate with all standard analog telephone systems
that accept pulse or tone dialing. The Sensaphone® Model 4100 cannot be used on an
extension line to dial its own telephone number. Also, it may not be installed on a
party line or pay telephone line.
Certain private telephone systems and public switching equipment may not accept
Sensaphone® dialing or may generate an unacceptable ring signal. In those cases, a
dedicated line may be required for the 4100. Consult the supplier of your telephone
system if you encounter problems.
7
Sensaphone® Model 4100 Instruction Manual
If you do not have a modular telephone extension at the Model 4100’s location, you
must contact your local telephone company to have one installed (there may be a
charge for this service). If you have four-pin jacks, adapters are available to convert
them to the modular plugs. Contact your local telephone company or electronics parts
store.
CAUTION: Never install telephone wiring during a lightning storm. Never install
telephone jacks in wet locations unless the jack is specifically designed for wet locations. Never touch uninsulated telephone wires or terminals unless the telephone line
has been disconnected at the network interface. Use caution when installing or modifying telephone lines.
The telephone line is wired to terminal screws 1 and 2 (marked PHONE) and threaded
through the strain relief clamp. To install the telephone line with your phone system,
plug the provided modular telephone jack into any standard RJ11 phone outlet. See
Figure 3:
Terminal connection
Strain relief clamp

Figure 3: Installing the telephone line
You may also use the 4100 on the same line with a telephone. To do this, simply
install a splitter in your RJ11 phone outlet and plug both the 4100 and the telephone
into it. It is not necessary to hook up a telephone for the Model 4100 to operate.
TEMPERATURE SENSORS
The Model 4100 is provided with one 2.8K Remote Temperature Assembly (25' wire)
pre-wired to the TEMP screw (#11) and COMMON (#10). It is used to monitor temperature. The Model 4100 evaluates the measurement to see if it exceeds the userprogrammed high and low limits. The temperature reading is also given in the status
report.

Chapter 2: Installation
THE MICROPHONE
The 4100 is provided with a microphone on a 25' cable to monitor high sound level at
your location. It is pre-wired to screw terminals 13 and 14. The microphone will
continuously listen for a high sound level that increases approximately 10 decibels
over the normal sound level at a frequency of about 1000 Hertz or more. (NOTE: The
sensitivity of the microphone can be changed. See Chapter 4, “Sound Alarm Monitoring Sensitivity.”) If this sound level exists for 8 consecutive seconds or longer (such as
with a smoke alarm or burglar alarm), the Model 4100 will dial out with an alarm
message.
NOTE: The location of the audible alarm in relation to the microphone is extremely
important. Normally, the 4100 and the audible alarm must be in the same room. The
maximum distance can vary considerably depending on the alarm, the acoustics, and
the size of the room.
During an alarm dial out, the microphone allows four 4-second intervals to listen-in to
the Model 4100’s location.
During a call in for a status report, the microphone allows you to listen to on-site
sounds for the user-programmed time interval.
ALERT INPUTS
The Sensaphone® Model 4100 can monitor up to 4 dry contact inputs. (The fourth
input is the AUX TEMP terminal. See page 11 for details). Each input connection
consists of two terminal screws. One marked: INPUT 1 (screw #3), INPUT 2 (screw
#4), INPUT 3 (screw #5), or AUX TEMP (screw #12). The other marked: COMMON
(screws #6, #10, or #14). See figure 4:

Figure 4: Alert inputs
An alert input can be used with any normally open (N.O.) or normally closed (N.C.)
device. Open is when there is no contact and closed is when a contact exists. The
Model 4100 will adapt to N.O. or N.C. sensors when the unit’s ID number is programmed (see Chapter 3,“Unit ID Number,” or Chapter 4, “Configure Input Normality”). You must determine what type of sensor will be connected to each alert input.
9
Sensaphone® Model 4100 Instruction Manual
NOTE: Before wiring, you may disable the input to prevent accidentally tripping an
alarm. See Chapter 4, page 25.
After you have selected the sensor, loosen the screw of the alert input and COMMON.
Two wire leads are used to connect any monitoring sensor. Fasten one lead to an input
screw and the other lead to a COMMON. Tighten both screws. See figure 6. If the
input was not disabled, the Model 4100 may recite its “Alert Condition exists” message
as you connect the sensor. If it does, just press any key to stop it. Re-enable the input
after wiring. See figure 6 for a diagram on connecting a sensor to an alert input.

Figure 6: Connecting a sensor to an alert input
Any N.O. or N.C. sensor can be attached to the Model 4100 using 22-gauge wire. The
sensor can be several hundred feet from the unit, as long as the total resistance of the
circuit is not greater than 50 ohms. Use wire appropriate for the application. Do not
use sensors, switches, or relays that supply any voltage or current to the Model 4100.
NOTE: Be aware of where you are placing the wires that lead from the sensors to the
unit. Avoid running the wires near electrical devices that use high voltage or current
such as motors, heavy machinery, etc. This voltage may be inductively coupled into
the sensor wiring and could result in damage to the Sensaphone®’s circuitry. Try to
place wires at least 6 inches from other electrical wiring or devices.
MULTIPLE SENSORS
The Model 4100 may have more than one sensor connected to the same alert input.
However, the normal condition for each sensor on the same alert input must be identical (either all N.O. or all N.C.).
To wire more than one normally closed sensor on one input, they must be connected
in series. Connect one lead from the first sensor to the screw of the alert input. Next,
take the other lead from the first sensor and connect it to one lead from the next sensor.
Continue connecting sensors end-to-end until you have connected all of your sensors.
Take the second lead from the last sensor and connect it to a COMMON screw on the
Sensaphone®. See Figure 7. Multiple N.C. inputs are typically magnetic reed switches
to monitor the security of windows and doors.

To wire several normally open sensors to one alert input, connect them in parallel. To
do this, take one lead from each sensor and attach it to the input terminal screw. Then,
take the second lead from each sensor and attach each to a COMMON screw. See
Figure 8.
Multiple N.O. inputs are typically TEMP°ALERTs to monitor the temperature in several
different locations simultaneously.

AUXILIARY TEMPERATURE / ALERT INPUT 4
The auxiliary terminal, marked AUX TEMP (screw #12) on the terminal strip, is a dual
purpose terminal. It can function as either a status-only temperature input, or as a
fourth dry contact input. If the AUX TEMP input is used as a temperature input, it is
only used in a status report and WILL NOT initiate a dial out process. If the AUX TEMP
input is used as a fourth dry contact input, it WILL initiate a dial out process.
To use the terminal as a status-only temperature input, wire one lead of the remote
temperature sensor (FGD-0005) to the AUX TEMP screw and the other lead to a COMMON. If you use the terminal with a remote temperature sensor, you cannot attach a
dry contact sensor.
To use the AUX TEMP terminal as a fourth dry contact input, wire any N.O. or N.C. dry
contact sensor to it as described in the previous “Alert Inputs” section. The Model
4100 will adapt to N.O. or N.C. sensors when the unit ID number is programmed. The
unit will dial-out with the message “Alert condition four exists.” If you use the terminal
as a fourth dry contact, you cannot attach a remote temperature sensor.

Sensaphone® Model 4100 Instruction Manual
OUTDOOR WIRING
When wiring sensors outdoors, DO NOT let your wiring run freely in open air. This
will surely damage your Sensaphone® during a lightning storm. Depending on how far
your outdoor wiring must travel, serious consideration should be given to using
shielded wire inside a metal conduit. The shield and conduit should both be connected to earth ground. This will prevent any lightning induced voltage from damaging
your Sensaphone®.
sensor
=
DISCONNECTING THE MODEL 4100 (FOR SEASONAL USE OR STORAGE)
If you plan to employ the Sensaphone® as a seasonal watchdog (i.e. only during the
winter or summer months), you must disconnect all wires from the unit completely to
avoid damage to the circuitry when the unit is not in use. If the unit is unplugged but
left in place with all the sensors still wired, the wires act as antennae that draw in any
stray “electrical noise” from such devices as fans, blowers, microwaves, etc.
To preserve your unit during the off season, simply remove the sensor wires at the
screw terminals (you may want to mark the wires to avoid confusion during rewiring),
unplug the unit, disconnect the battery jumper, and store in a safe place.
12
Chapter 2: Installation
FCC REQUIREMENTS
PART 68 - The Sensaphone® Model 4100 complies with Part 68 of the FCC rules. On
the inside cover of the unit enclosure there is a label that contains, among other information, the FCC Registration Number and the Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) for
this equipment. You must, upon request, provide this information to your local telephone company.
The REN is useful to determine the quantity of devices that you may connect to your
telephone line and still have all of those devices ring when your telephone number is
called. In most, but not all areas, the sum of the REN’s of all devices connected to one
line should not exceed five (5.0). To be certain of the number of devices that you may
connect to your line, you may want to contact your local telephone company to
determine the maximum REN for your calling area.
This equipment may not be used on coin service provided by the telephone company.
Connection to party lines is subject to state tariffs.
Should the Model 4100 cause harm to the telephone network, the telephone company
may discontinue your service temporarily. If possible, they will notify you in advance.
But if advanced notice is not practical, the telephone company may temporarily discontinue service without notice and you will be notified as soon as possible. You will
be informed of your right to file a complaint with the FCC. The telephone company
may make changes in its facilities, equipment, operations, or procedures where such
action is reasonably required in the operation of its business and is not inconsistent
with the rules and regulations of the FCC that could affect the proper functioning of
your equipment.
The telephone company may ask that
you disconnect this equipment from the network until the problem has been corrected
or until you are sure that the equipment is not malfunctioning.
PART 15 - This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a
Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed
to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is
operated in a commercial environment. This equipment generates, uses and can
radiate radio frequency energy and if not installed and used in accordance with the
instruction manual, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful interference in
which case the user will be required to correct the interference at his own expense.

Chapter 3: Communications Programming
TAD Compatibility stands for Telephone Answering Device Compatibility. This means
that the Model 4100 can be used on the same telephone line with telephone answering
devices, such as answering machines and modems. In normal operation (see NOTE
below), when your phone is called, the answering machine will always answer first
and take a message. The TAD feature provides a method for you to bypass the answering machine and access the 4100 when you call in for a status report. This feature is
used in conjunction with RINGS UNTIL ANSWER.
To use TAD:
1. Program the rings until answer (see above) to a greater number than the rings
until answer on your answering device. For example, 4100 rings = 5,
device rings = 3.
2. Press the SENSOR ON/OFF key
3. Press the TAD key
The 4100 will say “On.” (If the 4100 says “Off,” repeat steps 2 and 3.)
4. Using the above example, when you call in, let the phone ring twice and then
hang up. The 4100 recognizes that a call was made and activates a 3-minute
internal timer. This allows you 3 minutes to call back and get the unit instead
of the answering machine.
5. Call back within 3 minutes. The 4100 will override the answering device on
the callback and answer the phone on the first ring.

PRE-PROGRAMMED COMMUNICATIONS FEATURES
The following communications features are pre-programmed at the factory. The values
cannot be reprogrammed by the user.
CALL DELAY TIME - The call delay time is the length of time that the Model 4100 will
wait after an alarm is recognized before it starts the dialout sequence. The Model 4100
will wait 30 seconds after an alarm condition exists before it makes a phone call. This
time is only for the first call.
INTERCALL DELAY TIME - If the alarm is not acknowledged on the first call, the
intercall delay time is the amount of time that the Model 4100 waits before dialing the
next Phone number. The Model 4100 waits 1 minute before dialing the next Phone
number in the sequence if the alarm is not acknowledged.
VOICE REPETITIONS - The voice repetitions is how many times the Model 4100 will
repeat the alarm message per phone call when it dials out. The Model 4100 will recite
the alarm message 4 times per phone call.

ENABLE / DISABLE INPUTS
This function allows you to enable or disable an input (1-3, AUX TEMP) from dialing
out during an alarm. An enabled input will respond to an alarm and allow dialout. A
disabled input will not initiate a dialout. This command is useful while you are wiring
your inputs (see pages 9-10), or at any other time you would like the alarms to be
ignored. The default setting for all inputs is enabled (on).
To enable/disable inputs:
1. Press the SENSOR ON/OFF key
2. Press the number of the input to enable/disable (1, 2, 3, or 4 for AUX TEMP)
The unit will say “Off” to indicate disabled or “On” to indicate enabled.

CONFIGURE INPUT NORMALITY
Inputs must be configured as normally open or normally closed. The default for all
inputs is open. See Chapter 2, “Alert Inputs,” for further explanation on wiring inputs.
It is useful to disable inputs prior to wiring to prevent an alarm dialout. After this is
done, the Model 4100 must initialize the inputs as normal. Do this by programming
the unit’s ID number. When the ID number is set, the Model 4100 looks at the 4
inputs and establishes the present open/closed state as normal. Any change from that
is an alarm. The ID number is also (usually) the unit phone number. This number is
recited during a status report and alarm dialout report.
To set the status of the inputs as normal:
1. Disable the input
2. Wire the input
3. Program the ID#
4. Enable the input.
The inputs are now considered normal. If a normally closed input becomes open, an
alarm will occur. If a normally open input becomes closed, an alarm will occur.
Interrogating the ID number:
1. Press the WHAT IS key
2. Press the ID# key
The Model 4100 will say “Hello, this is ...” followed by a recitation of the
programmed ID number and a status report.

I.D.
See Chapter 5, page 34 for a more detailed description of the status report.
INPUT RECOGNITION TIME - The input recognition time is the length of time an input
must have an alarm continuously before the Model 4100 will recognize the condition.
If an alarm exists and then clears within the recognition time, it is never considered an
alarm. Inputs 1, 2, and 3 have a recognition time of 200 milliseconds. If the alarm
exists for 200 milliseconds, the Model 4100 will recognize it as an alarm and initiate a
dialout. The recognition time for the AUX TEMP/input 4 is 3 seconds.
TEMPERATURE LIMITS
The temperature limits are the high and low readings at the temperature sensor that will
cause the Model 4100 to dialout with an alarm message. The range of the temperature
input to measure temperature is -20° F to 150° F.

SOUND ALARM MONITORING SENSITIVITY
This command allows you to change the sensitivity of the sound monitoring feature.
This is useful to desensitize the Model 4100 if it is installed in an area with a relatively
high sound level, or where loud noises occur but are not associated with an alarm.
Also, this feature allows you to increase sensitivity in situations where you want to
monitor lower sound levels. The sensitivity range for sound alarm monitoring is 0 to
62 and is changed in increments of 2. The value 2 makes the microphone the MOST
sensitive to sound changes. (NOTE: The value 0 is invalid.) The value 62 makes the
microphone the LEAST sensitive to sound. The default value is 8.
To increment the sound alarm sensitivity by 2:

Chapter 5: Call-in Commands
CHAPTER 5
CALL-IN COMMANDS
The following two functions are call-in commands. This means that to utilize them you
must call the Model 4100 to execute the command. These features are: alarm acknowledgment and the status report. You may use either a pulse (rotary) or touch-tone
phone.
ALARM ACKNOWLEDGMENT
When the Model 4100 dials out with an alarm message, it will request acknowledgment before hanging up. Acknowledgment indicates to the unit that the alarm message
has been received. Upon acknowledgment, the Model 4100 will cease the dialout
sequence.
There are three ways that an alarm can be acknowledged: locally, by touch-tone
phone, or by callback acknowledgment.
1. Local acknowledgment: To acknowledge an alarm locally, press any key on the
keypad. Avoid pressing the OFF key because that will disable the unit.
2. Touch-tone acknowledgment: This method can only be used on a touch-tone
telephone. At the end of the alarm dialout message, the Model 4100 says “Indicate
you have received warning message ...” You have 5 seconds to enter the code “555.”
To do this, press the number key 5 on the touch-tone phone keypad three times. The
Model 4100 will say: “Warning message received by telephone number (last number
dialed).” The unit will then hang up and stop the dialout sequence.
If you enter the wrong code or did not enter it within 5 seconds, the 4100 will say:
“Dial telephone number (programmed unit phone number) within 60 seconds.” The
4100 will hang up. The alarm will not be acknowledged. You have 60 seconds to call
the unit back to acknowledge the alarm. Hang up, get a dial tone and dial the 4100’s
phone number.
3. Callback acknowledgment: This feature allows you to call in to the Model 4100
from a touch-tone or pulse phone to acknowledge the alarm.
To use callback acknowledgment, call the unit back within 60 seconds after receiving
the alarm call. If you have TAD enabled (see Chapter 3, “Rings Until Answer & TAD
Compatibility”), the Model 4100 will answer the phone on the first ring before the
answering device. If TAD is disabled, the phone must ring 10 times. This is a precaution against a random alarm acknowledgment. When the 4100 answers the callback, it
will give a status report, then say “Warning message received by ...” and recite the
telephone number that it last dialed. It will stop the dialout sequence for this alarm.
33
Sensaphone® Model 4100 Instruction Manual
STATUS REPORT
The status report feature allows you to call in to the Model 4100 and check the temperature, alarm and power status. The unit will answer after the programmed rings
until answer. If any alarm conditions exist, the alarm message will be recited. You can
also listen in to on-site sounds.
The following is an example of what the unit will recite during a status report:
Hello
This is telephone number 555-1234 (User-programmed unit phone number)
The time is 12:15 PM (Current time)
Alert condition OK (Alarm status. Other responses: 1 EXISTS, 2 EXISTS, 3 EXISTS, 4
EXISTS)
The temperature is 70 degrees (Current temperature)
OK (Temperature alarm condition. Other responses: The temperature is high/low.)
Two (Says this only if a remote temperature sensor is attached to the AUX TEMP
input.)
The temperature is 70 degrees (Says this only if a remote temperature sensor is
attached to the AUX TEMP input.)
The electricity is ON (Power status. Other response: OFF)
Battery condition OK (Backup battery condition. Other responses: Battery condition
low, replace battery.)
Sound level OK (Sound level status. Other response: HIGH)
NO NUMBER (Says this only if no dialout phone numbers have been programmed.)
Listen to the sound level for 10 seconds (User-programmed listen-in time)
The Model 4100 repeats the status report once more and then hangs up.
Have a good day.

Chapter 6: Output
CHAPTER 6
THE OUTPUT
The Model 4100 has one TTL, low current signal output. It is used to control a relay
device such as a horn or light and is primarily to be used for additonal local indication
or warning. The output can sink a maximum of 10 mA and source a maximum of 1
mA.
When the Model 4100 begins the dialout alarm sequence, the output will be switched
ON. When the alarm is acknowleged, the output is switched OFF. We recommend
that you use the Ouptut Controller (FGD-0012) that was specifically designed for use
with the Model 4100. The Output Controller provides one dry contact output and a
manual override switch for the output signal and LED stauts. See Appendix B for
accessory information.
WIRING THE OUTPUT CONTROLLER
To wire the Output Controller to the 4100:
1. Wire OUT on the Output Controller side terminal block to the OUTPUT terminal
(screw #9) on the 4100.
2. Wire G to COMMON (screw #10).
3. Wire 12VDC to the BATTERY terminals (screws #15 and #16).
WIRING AN OUTPUT DEVICE TO THE OUTPUT CONTROLLER
An output device can be wired to the Output Controller as either normally open or
normally closed. Wire a normally open device to the Output Controller terminals 1
and 2. Wire a normally closed device to the Output Controller terminals 1 and 3. The
relay can switch up to 2 A at 30 VDC or 1 A at 110 VAC. Two examples follow.

PROGRAMMING SUMMARY
After the Model 4100 has been completely installed, you are ready to begin programming the unit. The following is a recommended sequence for the programming
commands. Refer to the programming chapters 3 and 4 for explanation on how to use
each command. This section is intended to help you understand the commands and
organize your programming.
MONITORING FUNCTIONS
1. Disable inputs 1-3, 4 (AUX TEMP). This action will allow you to wire the dry
contact inputs without tripping an alarm dialout.
2. Wire inputs 1-4. See INSTALLATION.
3. Configure inputs as normally opened or normally closed. This command determines what will be the normal or alarm state for each input 1-4. When you set the ID
number, the present open/closed state of your sensors will be considered normal. For
example, if you have input 1 wired as a closed input, setting the ID number will make
it normally closed. If the input is opened, an alarm will result.
4. Enable inputs 1-4. The inputs are now operational and monitoring chosen conditions.
5. Disable high/low temperature inputs. This will allow you to set limits without
causing an alarm dialout.
6. Set high and low temperature limits. Be careful not to set the temperature limits too
close to normal room temperature to avoid dialouts for minor/temporary changes in
temperature.
7. Enable temperature inputs. The temperature inputs are now operational.
8. Enable or disable AC power monitoring. The Model 4100 is capable of monitoring
AC power failure. This feature is built-in, no external wiring is required. You can
enable or disable the power detection. When enabled, the Model 4100 will dial out
for a power failure. When disabled, the 4100 will not dial out if a power failure
occurs.
9. Power recognition time. This is the length of time a power failure must exist before
the 4100 considers it an alarm.
10. Enable or disable high sound level alarm. The Model 4100 monitors sound
through the built-in microphone. When the current sound level suddenly exceeds the
normal sound level, the high sound alarm causes the Model 4100 to dial out. When
disabled, the 4100 will not dial out for high sound.

11. Sensitize/desensitize sound monitoring. This command allows you to make the
microphone more sensitive or less sensitive to sound at the unit location. This helps to
eliminate false sound alarms if the sound level is normally high.
COMMUNICATIONS FUNCTIONS
The Model 4100 is now prepared for alarm monitoring. Next, you must program your
phone numbers and related dialing specifications.
1. Dialout telephone numbers. The Model 4100 can dial up to 4 phone numbers, 32
digits each. These phone numbers are dialed sequentially, so program the first number
you want called as Phone #1, the second as Phone #2, etc.
2. Tone or pulse dialing. The Model 4100’s phone numbers can be dialed out in
either Tone or pulse. This feature is programmed directly into your dialout Phone
numbers.
3. Special dialing. The 4100 is capable of dialing out to some special phone and
beeper systems that require pound (#) or asterisk (*) tones as part of the phone number.
Remember that each # or * counts as one digit toward the total of 32 digits.
4. Rings until answer. This parameter determines how many times the 4100 will allow
the phone to ring before answering. For example, if you set this to 4, the 4100 will
wait 4 rings and then answer when you call in. This feature is also used in conjunction
with the Telephone Answering Device (TAD) compatibility.
5. TAD compatibility. The Model 4100 can operate on the same phone line as other
telephone answering devices such as a modem or answering machine. Enable this
feature only if an answering device in on the same phone line as the 4100. See pages
18 -19 for more information.
6. The unit ID number. This 32-digit number should be programmed as the unit
phone number. Programming this number also establishes the normal condition of the
alert inputs.
7. Local voice mute. This parameter allows you to mute the local voice when the
Model 4100 dials out for an alarm or is called for a status report. When the mute is on,
the dialout alarm messages and call-in status messages will not be heard at the monitor
site. When the mute is off, the Model 4100 will repeat the message locally as well as
over the phone.
8. Time. This command allows you to set the 4100’s built-in clock.
9. Listen-in time. The Model 4100 allows you to listen in to sounds at the monitor site
through its built-in microphone when you call in for a status report. This parameter
allows you to determine the amount of time for sound monitoring.
10. Security code. You may program a 4-digit security code to prevent unauthorized
access to the 4100’s programming. The security code locks the keyboard for programming but allows interrogation.

Appendix A: Checking for Proper Operation
APPENDIX A
Checking your Sensaphone for Proper Operation
We recommend that you test your Sensaphone weekly to be sure it is functioning
properly. This will ensure that when a problem arises the Sensaphone will be ready to
alert the appropriate personnel.
There are several tests that can be performed:
1) Call the unit and listen to the Status Report. This will test the unit’s ability to
answer the phone and speak a message. It will also verify that all of the inputs are
reading properly, the alarm conditions are OK, the electricity is on, the microphone is functioning, and the battery is OK.
2) Create an alarm on each input and allow the unit to contact all programmed
telephone numbers. This will make sure that the Sensaphone is programmed
properly. It will also prepare personnel to respond appropriately when they
receive a call from the Sensaphone.
3) Test the battery by unplugging the AC adapter and making sure that the Sensaphone continues to function. Press WHAT IS, then STATUS on the keypad, and
listen to the status report. Make sure the report states that “the electricity is off”
and “battery condition OK”. Keep the AC adapter unplugged so that a Power
Failure alarm occurs. Allow the unit to dial all programmed telephone numbers
while running on battery backup. Plug in the AC adapter after the unit has finished dialing all of the telephone numbers.
4) If you are using your Sensaphone to listen for a smoke alarm, then be sure to test
the smoke alarm to make sure that the Sensaphone picks up the audible signal
and triggers a high-sound-level alarm. Allow the unit to dial all programmed
telephone numbers.

Solution
Incorrect tone/pulse selection
See Chapter 3.
Incompatible phone line
The Model 4100 must be hooked up to
a standard 2-wire analog phone line,
NOT a digital extension to a phone
system. If the unit won’t dial out and it
is not the two previous problems, try
hooking the unit up to a phone line that
you know is standard (such as a
residential or home phone). If it works,
then there is an incompatibility with the
other phone system. If this does not
work, call Phonetics Technical Service
Department.
Incorrect programming of rings
until answer
When used on a proper extension line,
some phone systems won’t let the
phone ring past 4 rings. If rings until
answer is greater than 4, you cannot get
to the unit. Try setting the rings to less
than 4 (see Chapter 3). If it still does not
work, then the phone line may be
incompatible (see below).
Incompatible phone line
The Model 4100 must be hooked up to
