IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Your Model 1108 has been carefully designed to give you years of
safe, reliable performance. As with all electrical equipment,
however, there are a few basic precautions you should take to
avoid hurting yourself or damaging the unit:
• Read the installation and operating instructions in this
manual carefully. Be sure to save it for future reference.
• Read and follow all warning and instruction labels on the
product itself.
• To protect the Model 1108 from overheating, make sure all
openings on the unit are not blocked. Do not place on or
near a heat source, such as a radiator or heat register.
• Do not use your Model 1108 near water, or spill liquid of
any kind into it.
• Be certain that your power source matches the rating listed
on the AC power transformer. If you’re not sure of the type
of power supply to your facility, consult your dealer or local
power company.
• Do not allow anything to rest on the power cord. Do not
locate this product where the cord will be abused by persons
walking on it.
• Do not overload wall outlets and extension cords, as this can
result in the risk of fire or electric shock.
• Never push objects of any kind into this product through
ventilation holes as they may touch dangerous voltage points
or short out parts that could result in a risk of fire or electric
shock.
• To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not disassemble this
product, but return it to Sensaphone Customer Service, or
other approved repair facility, when any service or repair
work is required. Opening or removing covers may expose
you to dangerous voltages or other risks. Incorrect
reassembly can cause electric shock when the unit is
subsequently used.
• If anything happens that indicates that your Model 1108 is
not working properly or has been damaged, unplug it
immediately and follow the procedures in Appendix F for
having it serviced. Return the unit for servicing under the
following conditions:

FCC Requirements
Part 68: The Sensaphone® Model 1108 complies with Part 68 of
the FCC rules. On the back of the unit 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 1108 cause harm to the telephone network, the
telephone company may discontinue your service temporarily. If
possible, they will notify you in advance. But if advance notice
isn’t 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. If they do, you will be notified in advance to give you
an opportunity to maintain uninterrupted telephone service.
If you experience trouble with this equipment, or you need
information on obtaining service or repairs, please contact:
PHONETICS, INC.
901 Tryens Road, Aston, PA 19014
610-558-2700 Fax: 610-558-0222
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.

Canadian Department of Communications Statement
Notice: The Canadian Department of Communications label
identifies certified equipment. This certification means that the
equipment meets certain telecommunications network protective
operational and safety requirements. The Department does not
guarantee the equipment will operate to the user’s satisfaction.
Before installing this equipment, users should ensure that it is
permissible to be connected to the facilities of the local
telecommunications company. The equipment must also be
installed using an acceptable method of connection. In some
cases, where the company’s inside wiring is associated with a
single line, individual service may be extended by means of a
certified connector assembly (telephone extension cord). The
customer should be aware that compliance with the above
conditions may not prevent degradation of service in some
situations.
Repairs to certified equipment should be made by an authorized
Canadian maintenance facility designated by the supplier. Any
repairs or alterations made by the user to this equipment, or
equipment malfunctions, may give the telecommunications
company cause to request the user to disconnect the equipment.
Users should ensure for their own protection that the electrical
ground connections of the power utility telephone lines and
internal metallic water pipe system, if present, are connected
together. This precaution may be particularly important in rural
areas.
CAUTION: Users should not attempt to make such connections
themselves, but should contact the appropriate electric inspection
authority, or electrician, as appropriate.
The Load Number (LN) assigned to each terminal device denotes
the percentage of the total load to be connected to a telephone
loop which is used by the device to prevent overloading. The
termination on loop may consist of any combination of devices
subject only to the requirement that the total of the Load Numbers
of all the devices does not exceed 100. For the Sensaphone®
Model 1108, the Load Number is 8.

2.3 Power Surge Protection
The Model 1108 can be damaged by power surges and lightning
through the telephone line and the 120 VAC power supply.
Although the Model 1108 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 Sensaphone. See
Appendix D.
2.4 Power Supply and Battery Backup
The Model 1108 is provided with an AC power transformer that
will plug into any standard 120 VAC outlet and a battery backup
(batteries not included) that enables the unit to continue
functioning if AC power is removed (due to electric power
disruption or failure). The Model 1108 uses six, D-cell alkaline
batteries. Do not use rechargeable nicad batteries.
NOTE
Be sure that the AC transformer is plugged into an
outlet before installing batteries.

Chapter 2: Installation
2.6 Run Mode and Standby Mode
Pressing the RUN/STANDBY key on the Model 1108 keypad will
alternately activate or deactivate the unit. If the unit is activated
and in RUN mode, the red LED (small red light on the upper right
of the unit's front panel) glows steadily. In STANDBY mode, the
red LED goes out, but will blink every few seconds to indicate
that power is still supplied to the unit.
In RUN mode, the Model 1108 is able to receive incoming calls
and to automatically dial out in the event of an alarm on one of
the monitored conditions. To enter STANDBY mode, press
RUN/STANDBY.
As soon as the Model 1108 enters STANDBY mode, it responds
with “Have a good day.” The red light immediately goes out and
then resumes with a blink every few seconds. While in
STANDBY mode, all functions are disabled, but programmed
memory is preserved. Upon exiting STANDBY mode, any
currently existing alert conditions will be announced.
NOTE
STANDBY mode is not equivalent to “power off”—
an electrical source, such as the 120 VAC, or the battery backup, continues to provide full power to the
unit. If the unit is placed in STANDBY mode,
unplugged from the 120 VAC outlet, and placed in
storage, the batteries will continue to power the
Model 1108, discharging until they fail.
Consequently, batteries should always be removed
from the unit following disconnection from any 120
VAC outlet, prior to storage.
Press the RUN/STANDBY key again to return to RUN mode.
Figure 2-3. The RUN/STANDBY Key
2.7 Telephone Line
The Model 1108 will operate with all standard telephone systems
that accept pulse or tone dialing. The Model 1108 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.
23
Artisan Technology Group - Quality Instrumentation ... Guaranteed | (888) 88-SOURCE | www.artisantg.com
Sensaphone® Model 1108 User’s Manual
Certain private telephone systems and public switching equipment
may not accept the Model 1108 dialing or may generate an
unacceptable ring signal. In those cases, a dedicated line may be
required. Consult the supplier of your telephone system if you
encounter problems.
If you do not have a modular telephone extension at the Model
1108’s location, you must contact your local telephone company
to have one installed (there is 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.
To install the telephone line, plug the modular telephone jack
provided into any standard RJ11 phone outlet. Refer to Figure
2-4.
Figure 2-4. Installing the Telephone Line
On the back of the Model 1108 is a female telephone jack. This
is provided so that a telephone or other answering device may be
used on the same line as the unit. It is not necessary to hook up a
telephone for the Model 1108 to operate.
2.8 The Microphone
The Model 1108 is provided with a built-in microphone which is
used to monitor high sound levels produced near the installation
site. The sensitivity of the microphone is configurable and will
detect a continuous as well as a pulsating alarm. Note that
24
Artisan Technology Group - Quality Instrumentation ... Guaranteed | (888) 88-SOURCE | www.artisantg.com
Chapter 2: Installation
beeping alarms that have a half-second or more of silence
between beeps will not be detected.
Other programming options that apply to the microphone include
setting the length of time before a high sound causes an alarm.
If this sound level exists for 8 consecutive seconds (default) or for
the programmed length of time, the Model 1108 will dial out with
an alarm message.
NOTE
The proximity of the audible alarm to the microphone
is extremely important. Normally, the Model 1108
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-second
intervals to listen in to sounds at the Model 1108’s location.
When calling for a Status Report, the microphone permits
listening to on-site sounds for a programmed time interval.
2.9 Alert Inputs
The Model 1108 can monitor up to 8 inputs (represented by the
numbered terminal screws shown in Figure 2-5, below). Two input
terminals share the same ground.
Figure 2-5. Alert Inputs
Inputs are configured as either dry contact or temperature. An
input configured as dry contact can be used with any normally
open (N.O.) or normally closed (N.C.) device. Open refers to an
opened circuit path; if conditions cause the circuit to close, an
alert condition occurs. Closed refers to a continuous circuit path;
if a closed circuit is opened, an alert condition occurs. The Model
1108 determines the way inputs are configured by the type of
sensor connected to each alert input (refer to Chapter 5, Section
5.1).
An input configured as temperature is designed to evaluate a
range of settings. The Model 1108 will read the temperature at the
sensor’s location and compare that value to programmed high and
25
Artisan Technology Group - Quality Instrumentation ... Guaranteed | (888) 88-SOURCE | www.artisantg.com
Sensaphone® Model 1108 User’s Manual
low temperature limits. Temperature inputs must be used with a
Sensaphone Remote Temperature Sensor.
NOTE
Before wiring, it is advisable to disable the inputs to
prevent accidentally tripping an alarm. Refer to
Chapter 5, Section 5.2.
Important Note regarding Ultra-Low temperature freezers:
If you are connecting the Sensaphone to an ultra-low temperature
freezer (i.e. Revco, Thermo Forma, Fisher Scientific, etc...) be
aware that the the Sensaphone can only monitor temperatures
between -20 and 150 degrees Fahrenheit. As a result, you can
only monitor these freezers if they are supplied with the
appropriate alarm terminals/contacts. Please refer to your Freezer
owner’s manual for proper connection.
2.10 Installing the Sensor
After you have selected the sensor, loosen the screw of the alert
input and its corresponding ground. Two wire leads are used to
connect any monitoring sensor. Fasten one lead to the numbered
screw and the other lead to GND. Tighten both screws. If the
input was not disabled, the Model 1108 may recite its “Alert
Condition Exists” message as you connect the sensor. If it does,
just press any key to stop. Re-enable the input after wiring. Refer
to Figures 2-6 and 2-7 for connecting a sensor to an alert input.
Figure 2-6. Sensor Connected to an Alert Input
Any sensor can be attached to the Model 1108 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.

Chapter 2: Installation
Figure 2-7. Two Sensors Wired to Adjacent Inputs
Share the Same Ground Terminal Screw
NOTE
Do not use sensors, switches, or relays that supply
any voltage or current to the Model 1108. Be aware
of proximity to other electrical wires or components
when placing 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 the Model 1108’s circuitry. Try to
place wires at least 6 inches from other electrical
wiring or devices.
2.11 Multiple Sensors
The Model 1108 may have more than one sensor connected to the
same alert input, as long as the normal condition for each sensor
on the same alert input is identical (either all N.O. or all N.C.).
However, only one remote temperature sensor can be used on
each input.
When wiring several normally closed sensors on one input, they
must be connected in series. Connect one lead from the first
sensor to the numbered 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 the ground screw on the Model 1108.
See Figure 2-8. Multiple N.C. sensors are typically magnetic reed
switches to monitor the security of windows and doors.
27

Sensaphone® Model 1108 User’s Manual
Figure 2-8. Multiple Normally Closed Sensors
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 numbered terminal. Then, take the second lead
from each sensor and attach each to the corresponding ground
screw. Refer to Figure 2-9.
Figure 2-9. Multiple Normally Open Sensors
2.12 Outdoor Wiring
When wiring sensors outdoors, DO NOT allow exposed wires to
run freely in open air; under such conditions, the Model 1108 is
susceptible to serious damage during a lightning storm.
Depending upon the distance outdoor wiring must travel,
consideration should be given to use of shielded wire inside a
metal conduit. Both shield and conduit should be connected to
earth ground. This prevents stray voltage from entering the unit.

Disconnecting the Model 1108 for Storage or
Seasonal Use.
If you plan to employ the Model 1108 as a seasonal “watchdog”
for a few months during the year, 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 connected, the wires act as antennae that
draw in any stray “electrical noise” from such devices as fans,
blowers, microwaves, etc.
Additionally, it is important to remove the batteries, or they will
discharge until they fail.
Preserve your Model 1108 during the off-season, or when not in
use:
• Remove the sensor wires at the screw terminals
• Remove the batteries
• Unplug the unit and store in a safe place

2.
A VALID ALARM IS
CONFIRMED
An audible, on-site alarm message
begins and continues until the
alarm is acknowledged. (If the
Mute feature is turned on, there is
no on-site message.) Call Delay is
activated.
3.
DIAL-OUT BEGINS
Dial-out begins by calling
telephone number 1 to report an
alarm. If there is no
acknowledgment, the Model 1108
waits the programmed Intercall
Time before dialing subsequent
telephone numbers. Dial-out
continues in this manner, cycling
through the remaining telephone
numbers, for the programmed Max
Calls.
4.
THE ALARM IS
ACKNOWLEDGED
When the alarm is acknowledged,
the dial-out process is cancelled
and the audible, on-site alarm
message stops.
Programmable Feature
• Recognition Time
This is the programmed
waiting period to determine
if an alert condition has
persisted long enough to be
considered a valid alarm. If
the sensor returns to normal
within recognition time,
then no alarm will occur.
• Call Delay
This is the programmed
waiting period, before the
first telephone number is
called, to report an alarm.
• Intercall Time
This is the programmed
waiting period, in between
sequential dialing of
telephone numbers, to
report an alarm.
• Max Calls
This is the total number of
telephone calls that will be
dialed in response to any
valid alarm. Telephone
numbers are dialed
sequentially, and continue
to cycle until the maximum
number of calls is reached.
If no acknowledgment
occurs, then at the
completion of Max Calls,
all alarms are automatically
acknowledged.

4.6 TAD (Telephone Answering Device)
The TAD feature is especially useful because it integrates the
operation of the Model 1108 with your telephone answering
device in a way that retains the full flexibility of each system.
This allows you to have on-demand telephone access to the Model
1108, for obtaining a Status Report, or for issuing call-in
commands, while your telephone answering device is set to
receive outside calls. Programming for use with a telephone
answering device (TAD) is always used in conjunction with Rings
Until Answer, detailed in section 4.5.
NOTE
The TAD feature only applies to answering devices
connected to the same telephone line as the Model
1108.
4.6.1 TAD Enable/Disable
To enable/disable the TAD feature:
1.
Press SENSOR ON/OFF.
2.
Press RING/TAD.
The Model 1108 will respond: “On.” (If the Model 1108 says
“Off,” repeat steps 1 and 2 to reactivate TAD.)
4.6.2 Using the TAD Feature
1.
Make sure the TAD feature is enabled on the Model 1108.
(The default setting is disabled, so you must enable it first.)
2.
Determine the number of rings your telephone answering
device uses to answer the telephone. (Most answering devices
require 4 rings; others are selectable.)
3.
On the Model 1108, program Rings Until Answer to a greater
number than the number of rings set on your answering
machine.
Example:
Telephone answering device, rings = 4
Model 1108, Rings Until Answer = 6

Chapter 4: Communications Programming
Using the procedure just outlined, all incoming calls will be
answered by the telephone answering device, allowing it to
operate normally. With the programming just accomplished, the
Model 1108 can be accessed remotely, by telephone, to obtain the
Status Report.
1.
Dial the telephone number of the Model 1108.
2.
Let the telephone ring once and then hang up.
3.
Wait approximately ten seconds
4.
Call the Model 1108 back.
It will answer the telephone on the first ring.
Explanation: The pattern of one ring, followed by a second call
(within 30 seconds), signals the Model 1108 to answer your
incoming call, excluding the telephone answering device.
NOTE
Special Case: If the Model 1108 shares the same line
with a telephone answering device, and during certain
time periods, frequent, incoming calls are expected
on that line, then you may want to temporarily disable the TAD feature. If you leave the TAD enabled, it
will not adversely affect normal operation, but if two
outside telephone calls are received within the same
30-second time window, the Model 1108 will interpret this pattern as a signal to answer the telephone.
If this occurs, press any key on the Model 1108 to
hang up.
4.6.3 No TAD In Use
If a telephone answering device is not used on the same telephone
line as the Model 1108, make sure that the TAD feature is
disabled, or turned off. Only Rings Until Answer programming
will determine how incoming calls are answered. For example, if
you program Rings Until Answer to 3, incoming calls will be
answered in 3 rings.

4.12 Maximum Number of Calls (Max Calls)
The Max Calls feature controls the total number of repeated calling attempts by the Model 1108 in the event of an alarm. When an
alarm occurs, the dial-out process begins, and continues to cycle
through your programmed telephone numbers until a maximum
number of calls is reached. The Max Calls setting regulates the
number of calls that will be made as a result of any alarms; if
more than one alarm is detected at once, or if a second alarm
occurs during dial-out on the first alarm, the Max Calls setting
will start the calling process from zero, until the programmed
number of calling attempts are completed.
The default setting for Max Calls is 100, but it may be programmed
from 0 to 255 calls. Max Calls is cancelled when an alarm is
acknowledged. If the maximum number of calls is completed and
no alarm acknowledgement has occurred, the Model 1108 will
automatically acknowledge any alarm and stop the dial-out.
NOTE
If only one telephone number is programmed, the
Model 1108 will dial out a maximum of 15 times to
report an alarm.

programming parameters for the Model 1108. The code consists
of a 4-digit number you select and will effectively prevent
unauthorized changes to the Model 1108’s programming. When
the Security Code is activated, all keyboard programming is
inaccessible. The Model 1108 may be interrogated using the
WHAT IS key, but the keyboard must be unlocked, via the
Security Code, before any additional programming is possible.
4.14.1 Locking the Keypad
To program the Security Code:
1. Press SET.
2. Press CODE.
The Model 1108 will say “Enter security code.”
3. Using the number keys, enter 4 digits. The Model 1108 says,
“OK.” The keyboard is now locked.
If unauthorized persons attempt to set a parameter, an error
message, “Error 2,” is returned. Whenever any operation except
WHAT IS takes place without entering the security code first, this
error message occurs.
4.14.2 Unlocking the Keypad
To unlock the keyboard:
1. Press WHAT IS.
2. Press CODE.
The Model 1108 will say “Enter Security Code.”

5.1 Input Configuration
In preparing the Model 1108 to sense an alert condition, the
inputs must be configured as dry contact (either open or closed)
or as temperature inputs. The default setting for input 1 is
temperature; for inputs 2-8, the default is dry contact and open.
To configure input normality, sensors are first wired to the
terminal strip at the back of the unit. (Refer to Chapter 2, Section
2.9–2.12, for an explanation on wiring inputs.)
The configuration process directs the Model 1108 to initialize the
eight inputs and establish normal settings. Any change in the
status of an input (for example, from a normally open contact to a
suddenly closed contact) is recognized as an alert condition. In
the case of a temperature input, an alert condition is recognized
when established temperature limits are exceeded.
NOTE
Before starting keyboard commands to configure
input normality on the Model 1108, it is very important to check that the sensors you have wired to the
unit are set in their normal, non-alarm positions.
67
Artisan Technology Group - Quality Instrumentation ... Guaranteed | (888) 88-SOURCE | www.artisantg.com
Sensaphone® Model 1108 User’s Manual
For example, if a magnetic reed switch (a normallyclosed sensor used to detect unauthorized entry) has
been wired to the Model 1108, make sure that the
door or window to be monitored is shut before configuring the input. If a motion-detector is wired to the
unit, it is advisable to block all sources of motion
from the sensor before and during configuration.
5.1.1 Programming Input Configuration
1.
Press STANDBY to place the Model 1108 in Standby
mode.
2.
Wire sensors to the inputs to the back of the Model 1108 (see

4.
Press SET.
5.
Press CONFIGURE.
6.
The Model 1108 audibly recites the configuration for each of
the eight inputs:
• If the input is normally open, the Model 1108 recites the
number of the input and says “OK.”
• If the input is normally closed, the Model 1108 recites the
number of the input, followed by a “beep” and “OK.”
• If the input is configured as temperature, the Model 1108
recites the number of the input, followed by “Temperature.”
5.1.2 Verifying Input Configuration
Input configuration can be verified when interrogating the Model
1108 for a complete Status Report. Refer to Chapter 6 for a more
detailed description of the Status Report.

Chapter 5: Alarm Programming
5.2 Enable/Disable Inputs
This function allows you to enable or disable an input’s response
to an alert condition. An enabled input will respond to an alert
condition and allow dial-out. A disabled input will cause dial-out
to be suppressed, but any existing alert conditions will be revealed
during the Status Report. Enable/disable programming is useful
during wiring of inputs (see Chapter 2) or when a condition needs
to be monitored, but is not critical enough to be programmed for
dial-out reporting. It is important to verify input status after
performing any task that requires disabling. The default setting for
all inputs is enabled (ON).
If an alert condition exists when inputs are re-enabled,
Recognition Time will restart—refer to Section 5.3.
5.2.1 Changing Enabled/Disabled Input Status
1.
Press SENSOR ON/OFF.
2.
Press the number (1 to 8) of the selected input to
enable/disable. The Model 1108 says “Off” to indicate
disabled or “On” to indicate enabled.
5.2.2 Verifying Enabled/Disabled Input Status
1.
Press WHAT IS.
2.
Press STATUS.
The Model 1108 audibly recites the current status of every input.
In a Status Report, each input is first identified by its input
number, followed by a report that specifies parameters currently
69
Artisan Technology Group - Quality Instrumentation ... Guaranteed | (888) 88-SOURCE | www.artisantg.com
Sensaphone® Model 1108 User’s Manual
affecting that input. If an input is disabled, the word “Off”
immediately follows the number recited for that input.
For example, input 3 is configured as a normally open, dry
contact input. During the Status Report:
• If disabled, the Model 1108 recites:
“Number 3—Off—OK,” for input 3.
• If enabled, the Model 1108 recites:
“Number 3—OK,” for input 3.
In another example, input 2 is configured as a temperature input.
The current temperature is 76 degrees. During a Status Report:
• If disabled, the Model 1108 recites:
“Number 2—Off—76 degrees—OK.”
• If enabled, the Model 1108 recites:
“Number 2—76 degrees—OK.”
5.3 Input Recognition Time
The Input Recognition Time is the length of time an alert
condition must be present before a valid alarm exists and dial-out
is activated. This time period is programmable, from 0 minutes, 0
seconds (for immediate response) up to a period of 272 minutes, 0
seconds. If an alert condition begins and then clears within the
established Recognition Time, no dial-out will occur. When an
alert condition continues beyond the programmed Recognition
Time, the Model 1108 initiates dial-out. The default setting for
Input Recognition Time is 0 minutes, 3 seconds.

5.12 Exit Delay
When tripping an alarm is unavoidable, yet a true alert condition
has not actually occurred, the alarm response, including dial-out,
can be temporarily suppressed.
The Model 1108 is able to suppress and then reset its dial-out
function automatically through use of the Status Report. This is
especially convenient when an alert condition is created upon
exiting a monitored door, and there is no way to cancel from the
local keypad.
Example: You are planning to exit through a monitored door.
Prior to exiting, you initiate a Status Report recitation at the
Model 1108 keypad by pressing WHAT IS, followed by STATUS,
(key sequence shown below). This allows you approximately 30
seconds to exit without activating the Model 1108’s programmed
response to an alarm. At the conclusion of the status report,
normal alarm response is reactivated.
To use exit delay, initiate the Status Report.

Chapter 6: Acknowledgment,
Status Report & Remote Access
In addition to communication and alarm monitoring capabilities,
the Model 1108 will also respond to your instructions and provide
you with access to information on monitored conditions at all times.
By issuing commands to the unit, either at the installation site or
over standard telephone lines, the following features may be
activated:
• Acknowledgment of existing alarms
• The Status Report on all monitored conditions.
6.1 Alarm Acknowledgment
When the Model 1108 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 1108 will cancel the dial-out
sequence.
There are three ways* that an alarm is acknowledged directly:
•
•
•
Local Acknowledgment
Touch-Tone Acknowledgment
Callback Acknowledgment
™
* A fourth method of alarm acknowledgment is indirect. Refer
to Max Calls, Chapter 4, Section 4.12 for an example of
automatic alarm acknowledgment.
6.1.1 Local Acknowledgment
To acknowledge an alarm locally (directly at the installation site
of the Model 1108), press any key.
6.1.2 Touch-Tone™ Acknowledgment
This method of remote alarm acknowledgment works with a
Touch-Tone telephone.
Example: You receive a call from the Model 1108, reporting that
an alarm exists. The message concludes: “Indicate you have
received warning message.” Now, or at any time during this call,
you may acknowledge the alarm with the code “555” if you are
using a Touch-Tone telephone.
85
Artisan Technology Group - Quality Instrumentation ... Guaranteed | (888) 88-SOURCE | www.artisantg.com
Sensaphone® Model 1108 User’s Manual
• To enter “555,” press the number (5) key on the Touch-Tone
phone keypad three times. The Model 1108 will respond: *
“Warning message received by telephone number (last
number dialed).” The Model 1108 will hang up and the dialout sequence, including any further response to the alarm, will
be cancelled.
• If you enter the wrong code or do not enter it within 10
seconds following the conclusion of the message, the Model
1108 will respond: “Dial telephone number (the programmed
unit phone number) within (Intercall Time).” Then, the
Model 1108 will hang up. The alarm is still not acknowledged
until you call back. You have a period equal to the programmed
Intercall Time to call the unit back and enter the “555”
acknowledgment code. If you are calling from a pulse or
rotary telephone, refer to Callback Acknowledgment, Section
6.1.3, below.
6.1.3 Callback Acknowledgment
Callback Acknowledgement is a feature that allows you to
acknowledge an alarm without entering Touch-Tones. This
feature is disabled by default and must be enabled by entering the
key sequence below. When Callback Acknowledgment is enabled,
simply call the unit back and allow the line to ring 10 times. The
unit will then answer the call, give a Status Report, then say
“Warning message received by telephone number ...” and recite
the telephone number last dialed. This indicates that the alarm has
been acknowledged.
To enable or disable Callback Acknowledgement:
1.
Press SENSOR ON/OFF.
2.
Press PHONE NUMBER.
The model 1108 will say “On” to indicate that Callback
Acknowledgment is Enabled, or “Off” to indicate that Callback
Acknowledgement is Disabled. This method of remote alarm
acknowledgment works with any telephone: pulse, rotary, or
Touch-Tone.
86
Artisan Technology Group - Quality Instrumentation ... Guaranteed | (888) 88-SOURCE | www.artisantg.com
Chapter 6: Acknowledgment, Status Report & Remote Access
Example: The Model 1108 calls you with an alarm message. You
answer the call with a rotary or pulse telephone, and do the
following:
• Listen to the message and hang up.
• Then call the Model 1108 back on any telephone. You must
wait for 10 rings: This signals the Model 1108 to answer
your telephone call. (Make sure to call back within the
programmed setting for Intercall Time—refer to Chapter 4,
Section 4.11.)
When the Model 1108 answers your return call, it gives a Status
Report (refer to Section 6.2). Then it says: “Warning message
received by ...” and recites the telephone number last dialed. This
indicates that the alarm has been acknowledged.
NOTE
If you have the TAD feature ( telephone answering
device) enabled, the Model 1108 will answer the telephone on the first ring. If it is disabled, the telephone
must be allowed to ring 10 times. This serves as a
precaution against a random alarm acknowledgment.
Refer to Chapter 4, Section 4.6, for complete information on using the TAD feature.
6.2 Status Report
The Status Report allows access to complete information on all
monitored conditions either locally, from the keypad, or by
telephone, from any location. The Model 1108 will answer an
incoming telephone call following the programmed Rings Until
Answer (refer to Chapter 4, Section 4.5). Included with the Status
Report are messages related to alarm conditions, AC power,
battery backup and sound level. It also provides an opportunity
for listening to on-site sounds (refer to Listen-in Time, Chapter 4,
Section 4.7).

concludes the call, saying: “Have a good day.” (The Status Report
will not repeat if obtained at the keypad; “Have a good day,” is
also not recited.)
The phrase “no number” at the end of a Status Report indicates
that no dial-out phone numbers have been programmed.

6.2.2 Example: Status Report, Existing Alarms
Inputs 2, 3, 4 and 6 are configured as dry contact and inputs 1, 5,
7 and 8 are configured as temperature. An emergency situation is
at hand: a fire in a greenhouse has tripped a smoke alarm and
electrical power has been disrupted. In addition to high sound and
AC power alarms, separate alarms exist on inputs 5, 6, 7, and 8.
You happen to call in for the Status Report, which begins with,
“Hello, this is telephone number 555-1234; the time is 12:15PM.”
Following this introduction, the report continues:
“Number 1, 74 degrees, OK.”
“Number 2, OK.”
“Number 3, OK.”
“Number 4, OK.”
“Number 5, 105 degrees, HIGH.”
“Number 6, EXISTS.”
“Number 7, 110 degrees, HIGH.”
“Number 8, 98 degrees, HIGH.”
“The electricity is OFF.”
“Battery condition, OK.”
“Sound level, HIGH.”
“Warning message received by ...(last telephone number
dialed*).”
“Listen to the sound level for 10 seconds.”
The Status Report repeats once more and the Model 1108
concludes the call by saying: “Have a good day.”
* The “last telephone number dialed” refers to any
one of the programmed, dial-out telephone numbers
through which the Model 1108 was able to receive
alarm acknowledgment, prior to your call for a Status
Report; this could also refer to the Model 1108’s I.D.
Number (identification number), if the alarms are
acknowledged at the keypad by someone present at
the site.

6.2.3 Example: Status Report, Disabled Inputs
If an input is disabled, the dial-out feature for that input is
deactivated, but all other programmed parameters remain in effect.
In the example below, all 8 inputs are disabled, although inputs 5
and 6 are detecting alarms. AC power and Sound Level is also
disabled for dial-out. (Note that to indicate disabled status, only
AC power will return two audible “beeps,” rather than the word
“OFF.”) When you call the Model 1108 for a Status Report, you
hear the following:
“Hello, this is telephone number 555-1234.
“The time is 12:15PM.”
“Number 1, OFF, OK.”
“Number 2, OFF, 74 degrees, OK.”
“Number 3, OFF, OK.”
“Number 4, OFF, OK.”
“Number 5, OFF, 96 degrees, HIGH.”
“Number 6, OFF, EXISTS.”
“Number 7, OFF, 86 degrees, OK.”
“Number 8, OFF, 70 degrees, OK.”
“The electricity is (beep, beep) ON.” If the electricity is off, or the
AC adaptor is disconnected, you will hear: “The electricity is
(beep, beep) OFF.”
“Battery condition, OK.”
“Sound level OFF, OK.” If the sound level is high you will hear:
Sound level OFF, HIGH.”
“Listen to the sound level for 10 seconds.”
The Status Report repeats once more and the Model 1108
concludes the call, saying: “Have a good day.”
6.2.4 Battery Condition
During a Status Report, you may hear one of three possible
messages regarding battery power. The Model 1108 determines
the appropriate message by measuring battery voltage.
Depending upon the remaining voltage, it may respond:
• “Battery Condition OK,” if over 8.2 Volts.
• “Battery Condition low,” if between 7.2 and 8.2 Volts.
• “Replace batteries,” if below 7.2 Volts.

Chapter 6: Acknowledgment, Status Report & Remote Access
6.2.5 Remote Access by Touch-Tone™ Telephone
Calling the Model 1108 for a Status Report provides the
opportunity to access other functions, using Touch-Tone pushbutton commands. Remote telephone commands include:
• Disabling/enabling any input.
• Disabling/enabling High Sound Alarm monitoring.
• Disabling/enabling AC Power monitoring.
• Activation of Listen-In Time.
• Activation of the Status Report.
To issue commands by telephone, first dial the number of the
Model 1108 to access the Status Report. The Status Report will
be followed by the programmed Listen-In Time. If you remain on
the telephone, the Status Report will be repeated, followed by a 10
second waiting period and hang-up. During this 10 second waiting
period, or at any time during the call, other commands may by
accessed by pressing any push button on the telephone.
If a Security Code is in effect, the Model 1108 will prompt you
with: “Enter Security Code.” If no Security Code is set, then it
will say “O.K.”
• Enter your Security Code (4 digits) with the telephone push
buttons. If the code you enter is correct, the Model 1108 will
respond: “OK.”
• If you enter the wrong Security Code, the Model 1108 says,
“Error. Have a good day,” and hangs up.
Disabling/enabling inputs – If an input is set to detect an alert
condition, it can be disabled to prevent the Model 1108 from
dialing out, or re-enabled at any time.
This feature allows the convenience of disabling an input, even if
you are away from the site of the Model 1108. One such
application may involve an input programmed to detect
unauthorized entry. You are in another locale, but must allow
someone else temporary access to the area monitored by the
Model 1108. Using a Touch-Tone telephone, you can disable the
appropriate input (thereby disabling any alarm dial-out response).
The input remains disabled until you issue the same command,
which effectively returns it to its former, enabled state.

Chapter 7: Operation
After installation and programming is completed, the Model 1108
is fully operational. This chapter explains the sequence of events
that occur during an alarm dialout to illustrate how the Model
1108 operates.
7.1 Alarm Detection, Dial-out and Acknowledgment
Generally, an alarm event is structured in the following manner:
I. The Model 1108 detects an alert condition due to a change
at the sensor.
II. A valid alarm is recognized.
III. Dial-out begins.
IV. The alarm is acknowledged.
Often, an alarm does not proceed through all stages: either an
alert condition does not persist long enough to be considered
valid, or a valid alarm is cancelled.
The table on the following pages explains the alarm detection,
dial-out and acknowledgment features and lists important variable
factors affecting their operation.
93
Artisan Technology Group - Quality Instrumentation ... Guaranteed | (888) 88-SOURCE | www.artisantg.com
Sensaphone® Model 1108 User’s Manual
I.Model 1108 Detects a Change at the Sensor
• Model 1108 detects a change in the
monitored condition (from the sensor
wired to one of the inputs). This is
considered an alert condition, and does
not qualify as a valid alarm at this point.
• The condition continues throughout the
programmed Recognition Time. If the
condition (or sensor) reverts to its normal
state before the Recognition Time is
reached, no alarm will occur.
II. A Valid Alarm Is Recognized
• The condition must persist long enough to
meet or exceed the programmed
Recognition Time. When Recognition
Time has expired, but the alert condition
continues, the Model 1108 will determine
that a valid alarm exists.
• When a valid alarm is determined, Call
Delay is activated, forcing the Model
1108 to wait for a programmed period of
time before starting the dial-out process.
Call Delay applies to the period just prior
to dial-out, before the first telephone call
is made.
• Call Delay provides the opportunity to
cancel a valid alarm at the Model 1108’s
installation site, before dial-out occurs.
An audible voice message indicates which
of the inputs is in alarm. If on-site
personnel acknowledge the alarm within
the Call Delay time, the Model 1108 will
not dial out. (Local Voice Mute is
disabled, so that alarm messages can be
heard at the site.)

III. Dial-out Begins
Variable Factors
• The dial-out process is activated as soon as
the Call Delay time expires (if the alarm
has not been cancelled at the Model 1108’s
installation site.) The dial-out begins with
telephone number 1 and proceeds
sequentially, through the remaining
telephone numbers.
Call Delay:
Expired
• If the alarm is not acknowledged with the
first dial-out telephone call, the Model
1108 waits the duration of Intercall Time
before dialing the next telephone number.
Intercall Time is the programmed waiting
period in between each dial-out telephone
call.
Intercall Time:
Activated
• When the telephone is answered, the
programmed Voice Repetitions determine
the number of times per call the Model
1108 recites the alarm message.
Voice Repetitions:
Activated
• Call Progress, an automatic feature,
enables the Model 1108 to detect whether
or not the telephone call is answered. After
8 rings, or if a busy signal is encountered,
the Model 1108 will hang up, wait the
programmed Intercall Time, and proceed to
dial the next telephone number.
Call Progress:
Activated
• If no telephone calls are answered, the
Model 1108 dials out sequentially, through
the remaining telephone numbers and
continues to cycle until the programmed
Maximum Number of Calls is reached.
Max Calls:
Activated
• When the telephone is answered, the
Model 1108 will immediately begin
reciting a message that indicates which of
the inputs is in alarm. At the same time,
the alarm message is repeating at the
Model 1108’s installation site. The Model
1108 will request acknowledgment, if it
has not yet occurred.

IV. The Alarm Is Acknowledged
• At any time after a valid alarm is
determined, the alarm may be
acknowledged at the Model 1108’s
installation site, by pressing any key.
• When the Model 1108 dials out and the
call is answered via Touch-Tone
telephone, any alarm may be instantly
acknowledged by pressing “555.”
• If the alarm message repeats for the
number of programmed Voice
Repetitions, and “555” has not been
entered, the Model 1108 will say:

Chapter 8: Model 1108 Special Editions
The Sensaphone Model 1108 also comes in three editions with
additional special features: the CottageSitter, BusinessSitter,
RemoteControl, and Model 1118 Line Seizure models. If you have
purchased one of these versions of the 1108, please refer to this
chapter for additional information specific to the operation of your
unit.
8.1 Sensaphone 1108 CottageSitter Edition
The Sensaphone 1108 CottageSitter allows you to monitor and
check on the status of your cottage or cabin from any cellular or
ordinary telephone. The Sensaphone 1108 CottageSitter also allows
you to turn a device on or off using the 1108 keypad or using your
touch-tone telephone. You can also inquire about the status of the
device during a voice status report.
This Sensaphone contains a relay contact on the rear of the unit (see
Figure 1). The relay contact supports both a normally open and a
normally closed contact, commonly referred to as a “double throw”
relay.
When the Sensaphone relay is turned ON, a connection is made
between the ON and C (common) terminals and the connection to
the OFF terminal is disconnected. When the Sensaphone relay is
turned OFF, a connection is made between the OFF and the C
(common) terminals and the connection between the ON and C
(common) is disconnected (See Figure 1). When the Sensaphone
unit is put in standby mode, the relay remains in its last known
state. If the Sensaphone is completely shut down by removing the
batteries and unplugging it from power, the relay returns to an OFF
state, connecting the OFF terminal to the C (common).
The Sensaphone relay is a low voltage relay. Only voltages less than
30 volts AC 2AMPS, or 30 volts DC 2 AMPS may be switched. For
higher voltages, an additional high-voltage relay would be required.
Always enlist the services of a licensed electrician when working
with high voltages. Improper wiring can cause harm to you or
your property.
NOTE: For safety reasons it is highly recommended that
the unit only be used to switch low voltage signals (30
volts or less). If you intend to control higher voltages you
must install the unit in an NEC approved electrical panel

8.1.3 Heating up your Cottage or Cabin Remotely
If you keep your cottage or cabin open all year around, or if you
do not drain your pipes and antifreeze your plumbing, you likely
keep your furnace active when you are away but at a very low
temperature. The Sensaphone will provide an invaluable service to
you by keeping you updated to any change in the status of your
furnace operation. Prior to your arrival at your cottage or cabin,
you can remotely use your phone to instruct the furnace to
increase the heat.
Most furnaces use a typical 4-wire (heat/cooling) or 3-wire (heat
only) thermostat. The Sensaphone can easily control these types
of thermostats. If your heating source consists of high voltage
electric baseboard heaters, you should consult a qualified
electrician or heating professional for proper installation of the
Sensaphone remote control facility. Electric baseboard heaters
may utilize either a low voltage (2-wire) thermostat or a direct
control high voltage thermostat. Only the low voltage thermostat
may be directly connected to the Sensaphone.
8.1.4 The Dual Thermostat Concept
When a three or four wire low voltage thermostat is used, it is
easy to connect the Sensaphone to your furnace with the addition
of a secondary thermostat. One thermostat is set to your preferred
“away” temperature and the other thermostat is set to your
preferred “home” temperature. With your Sensaphone
CottageSitter, you will be able to switch between these two
thermostats.
Ideally, the “away” thermostat would be in your pump or furnace
room. Remember that your “away” thermostat will be the only
thermostat that keeps your cottage or cabin at minimal heat while
you are away. It should not be located near a window or where
direct sunlight might warm it, near a furnace radiator or vent, or
any heat source such as a pilot light.
101
Artisan Technology Group - Quality Instrumentation ... Guaranteed | (888) 88-SOURCE | www.artisantg.com
Sensaphone® Model 1108 User’s Manual
The second thermostat, the one pre-set for your preferred
temperature when you arrive at your cottage or cabin, should be
located in your normal living space. This would likely be your
existing thermostat, already located in a suitable location by your
heating professional at the time your furnace was installed.
By connecting these two thermostats together in a parallel
fashion, and by passing the low voltage supply through the
Sensaphone (See Figure 1), you can remotely or locally decide
which thermostat is in control of your furnace.
It is recommended that the “away” thermostat be connected to the
OFF terminal while the “home” thermostat be connected to the
ON terminal of the Sensaphone. This way, it’s easy to understand
which state your furnace is in: ON = Home and OFF = Away. The
supply voltage from your furnace (typically the wire labeled R or
24VAC), should always be connected to the C (Common) terminal
on the CottageSitter.
Figure 1: Dual Thermostat Setup
Note: This is a typical configuration when using
standard single-zone heat/cool thermostats. For easeof-use it is recommended that both thermostats be the
same model. Note also that all thermostats may not
be compatible with the dual-thermostat wiring
diagram. Consult your heating/cooling professional
for installation assistance.

Chapter 8: Special Editions
8.1.5 Controlling Lights or other devices
Using X10 technology, you can remotely activate any electrical
device or appliance in your home through your Sensaphone. X10
technology is a suite of control modules that plug into your
existing electrical outlets and transmit coded signals to lamps,
lights, and appliances to turn them on or off (See Figure 2).
Figure 2: X10 Lighting Control Setup
Sensaphone supports these devices through use of the popular
X10 Powerflash relay interface. To learn more about this
technology, consult X10 products on the web at www.x10.com or
visit your local electronics shop such as Radio Shack.
Such applications may include turning on a lamp or exterior lights
remotely from your cellular telephone when arriving at your
cottage or cabin late at night. Or you can use the X10 Powerflash
Module (set to momentary contact) in conjunction with the X10
Universal Module to remotely control your electric garage door
opener over the telephone—an ideal way of letting in your cottage
or cabin service personnel without being on-site. You may also
use the X10 technology to send the ON/OFF signal to a furnace
or heater if your thermostat is not easy to wire directly.
Finally, in addition to remotely controlling devices, X10
technology lets you extend the reach of certain Sensaphone
sensors such as door contacts, motion sensors, or water sensors.
This of great benefit where it is impossible to wire directly from
your sensors to your Sensaphone. Consult a qualified electrician
or your heating professional for assistance with locating your
remote sensors or contact your Sensaphone dealer.

8.2 Sensaphone 1108 BusinessSitter Edition
The Sensaphone 1108 BusinessSitter allows you to monitor and
check on the status of your facility from any cellular or ordinary
telephone. The Sensaphone 1108 BusinessSitter turns a device on
when an alarm occurs. You can also inquire about the status of the
device during a voice status report.
This Sensaphone edition contains a relay contact on the rear of
the unit (See Figure 3). The relay contact supports a normally
open relay.
When the Sensaphone detects an alarm condition, it closes this
relay, which then activates the device attached to the relay. The
relay remains closed throughout the alarm process, even while the
Sensaphone is making its alarm-response telephone calls out to
you. Reset of the alarm relay may occur either locally or remotely
via the telephone. This is discussed further in following sections.
The Sensaphone relay is a low voltage relay. Only voltages less
than 30 volts AC 2AMPS, or 30 volts DC 2 AMPS may be
switched. For higher voltages, an additional high-voltage relay
would be required.
Always enlist the services of a licensed electrician
when working with high voltages. Improper wiring
can cause harm to you or your property.
NOTE: For safety reasons it is highly recommended that the unit
only be used to switch low voltage signals (30 volts or less). If
you intend to control higher voltages you must install the unit in
an NEC approved electrical panel or enclosure and have wiring
performed by a qualified electrician.

between the ON and C (common) terminals and the connection to
the OFF terminal is disconnected. When the Sensaphone relay is
turned OFF, a connection is made between the OFF and the C
(common) terminals and the connection beetween the ON and C
(common) is disconnected (See Figure 4). When the Sensaphone
unit is put in standby mode, the relay remains in its last known
state. If the Sensaphone is completely shut down by removing the
batteries and unplugging it from power, the relay returns to an
OFF state, connecting the OFF terminal to the C (common).
The Sensaphone relay is a low voltage relay. Only voltages less
than 30 volts AC 2AMPS, or 30 volts DC 2 AMPS may be
switched. For higher voltages, an additional high-voltage relay
would be required.
Always enlist the services of a licensed electrician when working
with high voltages. Improper wiring can cause harm to you or
your property.
NOTE: For safety reasons it is highly recommended
that the unit only be used to switch low voltage signals (30 volts or less). If you intend to control higher
voltages you must install the unit in an NEC
approved electrical panel or enclosure and have
wiring performed by a qualified electrician.

8.3.3 Controlling Lights or other devices
Using X10 technology, you can remotely activate any electrical
device or appliance in your home through your 1108. X10
technology is a suite of control modules that plug into your
existing electrical outlets and transmit coded signals to lamps,
lights, and appliances to turn them on or off (See Figure 5).
Figure 5: X10 Lighting Control Setup
The Model 1108 supports these devices through use of the
popular X10 Powerflash relay interface. To learn more about this

technology, consult X10 products on the web at www.x10.com or
visit your local electronics shop such as Radio Shack.
Such applications may include turning on a lamp or exterior lights
remotely from your cellular telephone when arriving at your
cottage or cabin late at night. Or you can use the X10 Powerflash
Module (set to momentary contact) in conjunction with the X10
Universal Module to remotely control your electric garage door
opener over the telephone—an ideal way of letting in your cottage
or cabin service personnel without being on-site. You may also
use the X10 technology to send the ON/OFF signal to a furnace
or heater if your thermostat is not easy to wire directly.
Finally, in addition to remotely controlling devices, X10
technology lets you extend the reach of certain Sensaphone
sensors such as door contacts, motion sensors, or water sensors.
This is of great benefit where it is impossible to wire directly
from your sensors to your Sensaphone. Consult a qualified
electrician or your heating professional for assistance with
locating your remote sensors or contact your Sensaphone dealer.

8.4 Model 1118 Line Seizure Edition
The Sensaphone Model 1118 operates identically to the Model
1108 except for the “line seizure” feature. The following is an
explanation of the setup procedures unique to the Model 1118.
8.4.1 How Line Seizure Works
Line seizure gives the Sensaphone the ability to “seize” the
telephone line when it needs to dial out. For example, if an
emergency occurs that puts the Sensaphone into alert mode, the
Sensaphone will be able to dial out even if a telephone has been
left off the hook.
8.4.2 Hookup to the Phone Line
Programming and installation of the Sensaphone Model 1118 is
identical the Model 1108 except for the telephone line hookup.
On the unit there are two RJ11C phone jacks:
•The six-foot telephone cord with the male RJ11C jack on the
end is to be connected to the incoming line of your phone
service, ahead of all other phones or telephone extensions.
• The female RJ11C telephone jack on the back of the unit is
to be connected to all extensions.

Appendix A: Weekly Testing Procedure
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 batteries are OK.
2) Create an alarm on each input by tripping all connected
sensors.
Temperature sensors: Heat or cool the sensor.
Motion sensors: Have someone walk in front of the sensor.
Door/window sensors: open the door/window.
Water sensors: Apply a small amount of water beneath the
sensor or use a wet towel and touch it to the sensor probes.
Humidity sensors: Raise the humidity around the sensor by
holding a cup of very hot water beneath the sensor.
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 batteries 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.

Sensaphone® Model 1108 User’s Manual
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 highsound-level alarm. Allow the unit to dial all programmed
telephone numbers.
5) Keep a log of your tests, noting the date and whether the 1108
passed in each category tested. An example of such a log is
shown below. (See “Test Log” at the end of this manual.)

or alarm acknowledgment.
Cause
Solution
e)
The Model 1108 is connected to an
incompatible telephone line.
The Model 1108 must be connected to a
standard (2-wire analog) telephone line, not a
digital extension to a phone system. If the unit
will not dial out and the factors previously
listed have been ruled out, try connecting the
unit to a standard residential telephone line.
a)
Rings Until Answer is incorrectly programmed.
Recheck programming of Rings Until Answer.
Refer to Chapter 4, Section 4.5.1.
b)
The Model 1108 is connected to an
incompatible telephone line.
Some telephone systems will not allow the
telephone to ring beyond 4 rings. If your
Model 1108’s Rings Until Answer is set at
more than 4 rings, you may not be able to
access the unit. Try setting the Rings Until
Answer to less than 4 rings. If this does not
correct the problem, it may indicate telephone
line incompatibility. In this case, try
connecting the Model 1108 to a standard,
residential telephone line.
