IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

Your Model 1104 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 1104 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 1104 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 1104 is not working properly or has been damaged, unplug it immediately and follow the procedures in Appendix D for having it serviced. Return the unit for servicing under the following conditions:

FCC Requirements

Part 68: The Sensaphone ® Model 1104 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 1104 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.

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 a designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:

• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.

• Increase the separation between the equipment and the receiver.

• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.

• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/television technician for help.

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 1104, the Load Number is 8.

2.3 Power Surge Protection

The Model 1104 can be damaged by power surges and lightning through the telephone line and the 120 VAC power supply.

Although the Model 1104 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, Inc.

See Appendix D.

2.4 Power Supply and Battery Backup

The Model 1104 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 1104 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.

2.5 Starting the Model 1104

When the AC power transformer is first plugged into the electrical outlet, the Model 1104 automatically starts in RUN mode. The red LED light will begin to glow. The unit will respond with,“Hello, this is Sensaphone 1104.”

2.6 Run Mode and Standby Mode

Pressing the RUN/STANDBY key on the Model 1104 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 1104 is able to receive incoming calls and to dial out automatically in the event of an alarm on one of the monitored conditions. To enter STANDBY mode, press

RUN/STANDBY.

As soon as the Model 1104 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 1104, 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.

2.7 Telephone Line

The Model 1104 will operate with all standard telephone systems that accept pulse or tone dialing. The Model 1104 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 the Model 1104 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

1104’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.

24

Figure 2-4. Installing the Telephone Line

On the back of the Model 1104 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 1104 to operate.

Chapter 2: Installation

2.8 The Microphone

The Model 1104 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 beeping alamrs 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 1104 will dial out with an alarm message.

NOTE

The proximity of the audible alarm to the microphone is extremely important.

Normally, the Model 1104 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 1104’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 1104 can monitor up to 4 inputs (represented by the numbered terminal screws shown in Figure 2-5, below).

GND

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 1104 determines the way inputs are configured by the type

25

Sensaphone

®

Model 1104 User’s Manual

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 1104 will read the temperature at the sensor’s location and compare that value to programmed high and low temperature limits. Temperature inputs must be used with

Sensaphone’s Remote Temperature Sensor.

NOTE

Before wiring, it is advisable to disable the inputs to prevent accidentally tripping an alarm. See 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 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 1104 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. Refer to

Figures 2-6 and 2-7 for connecting a sensor to an alert input.

NOTE

Do not use sensors, switches, or relays that supply any voltage or current to the Model 1104. 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 1104’s circuitry. Try to place wires at least 6 inches from other electrical wiring or devices.

2.11 Multiple Sensors

The Model 1104 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

27

Sensaphone

®

Model 1104 User’s Manual

have connected all of your sensors. Take the second lead from the last sensor and connect it to the ground screw on the Model 1104.

See Figure 2-8. Multiple N.C. sensors are typically magnetic reed switches to monitor the security of windows and doors.

2.12 Outdoor Wiring

When wiring sensors outdoors, DO NOT allow exposed wires to run freely in open air; under such conditions, the Model 1104 is susceptible to serious damage during a lightning storm.

28

Chapter 2: Installation

Depending upon the distance outdoor wiring must travel, consideration should be given to the use of shielded wire inside a metal conduit. Both shield and conduit should be connected to an earth ground. This prevents stray voltage from entering the unit.

Figure 2-10. Potential Sensor Damage from Stray Electrical Noise

2.13 Disconnecting the Model 1104 for Storage or

Seasonal Use.

If you plan to employ the Model 1104 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 1104 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

3.4 Summary of the Alarm Dial-Out Process

Action—Response

Programmable Feature

1. THE MODEL 1104 DETECTS AN

ALERT CONDITION

An alert condition is not the same as a valid alarm—the condition must continue for the programmed time period, or Recognition Time, before it is recognized as a valid alarm.

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 onsite 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 1104 waits the programmed

Intercall Time before dialing

subsequent telephone numbers. Dialout 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.

• 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.

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 1104 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

1104, 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

1104.

4.6.1 TAD Enable/Disable

To enable/disable the TAD feature:

1. Press SENSOR ON/OFF.

SENSOR

4.6.2 Using the TAD Feature

1. Make sure the TAD feature is enabled on the Model 1104.

(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 1104, program Rings Until Answer to a greater number than the number of rings set on your answering machine.

52

Chapter 4: Communications Programming

Example:

Telephone answering device, rings = 4

Model 1104, Rings Until Answer = 6

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 1104 can be accessed remotely, by telephone, to obtain the

Status Report.

1.

Dial the telephone number of the Model 1104.

2.

Let the telephone ring once and then hang up.

3.

Wait approximately ten seconds

4.

Call the Model 1104 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 1104 to answer your incoming call, excluding the telephone answering device.

NOTE

Special Case: If the Model 1104 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 1104 will interpret this pattern as a signal to answer the telephone.

If this occurs, press any key on the Model 1104 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 1104, 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.

4.7 Listen-in Time

The Listen-in Time is the amount of time you can listen to sounds from the Model 1104’s built-in microphone at its installation site.

When you call in for a Status Report, the Model 1104 announces

Listen-in Time at the end of its first round of status readings, saying, “Listen to the sound level for (programmed time entered).”

The programmable range is from 0 to 255 seconds (or up to 4.17

minutes). The default value is 15 seconds.

NOTE

The microphone is also used to monitor high sound level. See Chapter 5, Section 5.10 through Section

4.8 Call Delay

Call Delay is the programmed length of time the Model 1104 waits, following detection of an alarm, before it begins the dialout sequence. This applies only to the first call. (Delay time between calls is also programmable: refer to Intercall Time,

Section 4-11.)

The purpose for Call Delay is to allow time for personnel at the

Model 1104’s installation site to respond to and cancel an alarm before dial-out begins. During this time, the Model 1104 will audibly repeat its “alert condition” message (unless the Local

Voice Mute feature has been activated—refer to Section 4.9). The default for Call Delay is 30 seconds. Call Delay can be programmed from 0 seconds to 60 minutes (1 hour).

Time is activated only after alarm dial-out to the first telephone

number fails to be acknowledged. This period can be

programmed from 10 seconds to 60 minutes. The default intercall time is 1 minute.

If an incoming telephone call is made to the Model 1104 during

Intercall Time (in between its dialing of subsequent telephone numbers to report an alarm), it will answer the incoming call and immediately report any existing alarms. The manner in which the incoming call is answered depends upon whether or not TAD is enabled or disabled:

• If TAD (Telephone Answering Device) is enabled, Rings

Until Answer will be 1.

• If TAD is disabled, Rings Until Answer will be 10.

4.12 Maximum Number of Calls (Max Calls)

The Max Calls feature controls the total number of repeated calling attempts by the Model 1104 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 1104 will automatically acknowledge any alarm and stop the dial-out.

NOTE

If only one telephone number is programmed, the

Model 1104 will dial out a maximum of 15 times to report an alarm.

Chapter 5: Alarm Programming

This chapter explains the alarm programming and monitoring capabilities of the Model 1104, with specific instructions for the following features:

• Configure inputs as dry contact or temperature

• Enable/disable inputs

• Program alarm Recognition Time for each input

• Program high and low temperature limits

• Disable alarm response to high or low temperature

• Program temperature in Fahrenheit or Celsius scale

• Calibrate temperature

• Obtain current temperature

• Program AC power-failure Recognition Time

• Enable/disable AC power monitoring

• Program sound level sensitivity

• Program high sound Recognition Time

• Disable alarm response to high sound

• Use Exit Delay via Status Report

5.1 Input Configuration

In preparing the Model 1104 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 2-4, 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 1104 to initialize the

4 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 1104, it is very impor-

tant to check that the sensors you have wired to the unit are set in their normal, non-alarm positions.

67

5.1.2 Verifying Input Configuration

Input configuration can be verified when interrogating the Model

1104 for a complete Status Report. Refer to Chapter 6 for a more detailed description of the Status Report.

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.

The Model 1104 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 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 1104 recites:

“Number 3—Off—OK,” for input 3.

If enabled, the Model 1104 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:

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 1104 initiates dial-out. The default setting for

Input Recognition Time is 0 minutes, 3 seconds.

5.4.2 Disabling Alarm Response to High or Low

Temperature

To disable alarm response to either high or low temperature settings exclusively, enter the maximum temperature limit when programming the selected input. (The Model 1104 will not respond to temperatures encountered at maximum settings or beyond.) Begin by following the key sequence shown in Section

5.4.1, and when prompted to enter the high or low temperature value:

• Set high temperature to either +150º F or +65º C (high temperature limit) to prevent the Model 1104 from responding to a high temperature alarm.

• Set low temperature to either -20° F or -30° C to prevent the

Model 1104 from responding to a low temperature alarm.

5.10 Sound Alarm Monitoring

This feature allows you to program the level and duration of sound that will cause the Model 1104 to respond to an alarm and dial-out. It may be useful to desensitize the Model 1104 to sound if it is installed in an area with a relatively high noise level, or where a loud noise occurs frequently but is not associated with an alarm. In some applications, it may be desirable to increase sound sensitivity to low sound levels.

5.10.1 Programming Sound Alarm Sensitivity

The sensitivity setting for sound alarm monitoring ranges from 1 to 255. A value of 1 makes the microphone the MOST sensitive to changes in sound. The value 255 makes the microphone the

LEAST sensitive to sound. The default value is 32.

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 1104 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 1104 keypad by pressing WHAT IS, followed by STATUS,

(key sequence shown below). This allows you approximately 30 seconds to exit without activating the Model 1104’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 1104 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 1104 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 1104 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 1104), 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 1104, 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.

83

Sensaphone

®

Model 1104 User’s Manual

• To enter “555,” press the number (5) key on the Touch-Tone

™ phone keypad three times. The Model 1104 will respond: *

“Warning message received by telephone number (last

number dialed).” The Model 1104 will hang up and the dial-

out 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

1104 will respond: “Dial telephone number (the programmed

unit phone number) within (Intercall Time).” Then, the

Model 1104 will hang up. The alarm is still not acknowledged until you call back. 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, recite 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.

84

Chapter 6: Acknowledgment, Status Report & Remote Access

Example: The Model 1104 calls you with an alarm message. You answer the call with a rotary or pulse telephone, and do the following:

• You listen to the message and hang up.

• Then you call the Model 1104 back on any telephone. You must wait for 10 rings—this signals the Model 1104 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 1104 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 1104 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 1104 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).

Sections 6.2.1, 6.2.2, and 6.2.3 demonstrate two different Status

Report recitations. The Status Report starts with:

“Hello. This is telephone number 555-1234 (or the programmed

ID).”

“The time is 12:15

PM

(or the current time).”

The Model 1104 proceeds with a separate report for each input.

Each input identifies itself by reciting the input number.

6.2.1 Example: Status Report, No Alarms

Inputs 2, 3, and 4 are configured as dry contact and input 1 is configured as temperature. No alarms exist. The Status Report begins by saying, “Hello, this is telephone number 555-1234; the

time is 12:15

PM

.”

Following this introduction, the report continues:

“Number 1, 74 degrees, OK.”

“Number 2, OK.”

“Number 3, OK.”

“Number 4, OK.”

“The electricity is ON.” This refers to AC power.

“Battery condition, OK.” Other possible responses: “Battery

condition low” or “Replace batteries.” (Refer to Section 6.2.4 for additional information regarding battery condition.)

“Sound level, OK.”

“Listen to the sound level for 10 seconds.” In this case, the programmed Listen-in Time is set at 10 seconds. (This feature is not available when obtaining the Status Report on-site, directly at the keypad.)

The Status Report repeats once more and the Model 1104 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,and 4 are configured as dry contact and input 1 is configured as temperature. An emergency situation is at hand: a

86

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 1, 2, 3, and 4. You happen to call in for the Status Report, which begins with, “Hello,

this is telephone number 555-1234; the time is 12:15

PM

.”

Following this introduction, the report continues:

“Number 1, 110 degrees, HIGH.”

“Number 2, EXISTS.”

“Number 3, EXISTS.”

“Number 4, EXISTS.”

“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 1104 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 1104 was able to receive alarm acknowledgment, prior to your call for a Status

Report; this could also refer to the Model 1104’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 4 inputs are disabled, although inputs 1 and 3 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 1104 for a Status Report, you hear the following:

“Hello, this is telephone number 555-1234.

“The time is 12:15

PM

.”

“Listen to the sound level for 10 seconds.”

The Status Report repeats once more and the Model 1104 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 1104 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.

6.2.5 Remote Access by Touch-Tone™ Telephone

Calling the Model 1104 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 1104 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 1104 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 1104 will respond: “OK.”

• If you enter the wrong Security Code, the Model 1104 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 1104 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 1104. 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 1104. 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 1104 is fully operational. This chapter explains the sequence of events that occur during an alarm dialout to illustrate how the Model

1104 operates.

7.1 Alarm Detection, Dial-out and Acknowledgment

Generally, an alarm event is structured in the following manner:

I.

The Model 1104 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.

91

Sensaphone

Model 1104 User’s Manual

I.Model 1104 Detects a Change at the Sensor Variable Factors

• Model 1104 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 1104 will determine that a valid alarm exists.

• When a valid alarm is determined, Call

Delay is activated, forcing the Model

1104 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 1104’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 1104 will not dial out. (Local Voice Mute is disabled, so that alarm messages can be heard at the site.)

Variable Factors III. Dial-out Begins

• The dial-out process is activated as soon as the Call Delay time expires (if the alarm has not been cancelled at the Model 1104’s installation site.) The dial-out begins with telephone number 1 and proceeds sequentially, through the remaining telephone numbers.

• If the alarm is not acknowledged with the first dial-out telephone call, the Model

1104 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.

• When the telephone is answered, the programmed Voice Repetitions determine the number of times per call the Model

1104 recites the alarm message.

• Call Progress, an automatic feature, enables the Model 1104 to detect whether or not the telephone call is answered. After

8 rings, or if a busy signal is encountered, the Model 1104 will hang up, wait the programmed Intercall Time, and proceed to dial the next telephone number.

• If no telephone calls are answered, the

Model 1104 dials out sequentially, through the remaining telephone numbers and continues to cycle until the programmed

Maximum Number of Calls is reached.

• When the telephone is answered, the

Model 1104 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 1104’s installation site. The Model

1104 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 1104’s installation site, by pressing any key.

• When the Model 1104 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 1104 will say:

“Indicate that you have received warning message.”

The Model 1104 waits 10 seconds for the

Touch-Tone code “555” to be entered. If the code is entered within 10 seconds, it responds:

Warning message received by telephone number...(the dialed phone number).”

The alarm is considered acknowledged and the dialout concludes.

• If the Model 1104 does not receive the

Touch-Tone code within 10 seconds, it recites the following and then hangs up:

“Dial telephone number (gives the Unit ID

Number) within...(the programmed Intercall

Time.)”

The recipient of this message must call the Model 1104 back within the period programmed for Intercall Time, in order to acknowledge the alarm. If Local

Voice Mute is off, the unit will beep at the installation site while waiting for this call.

Chapter 8: Model 1104 Special Editions

The Sensaphone Model 1104 also comes in three editions with additional special features: the CottageSitter, BusinessSitter,

RemoteControl, and Model 1114 Line Seizure models. If you have purchased one of these versions of the 1104, please refer to this chapter for additional information specific to the operation of your unit.

8.1 Sensaphone 1104 CottageSitter Edition

The Sensaphone 1104 CottageSitter allows you to monitor and check on the status of your cottage or cabin from any cellular or ordinary telephone. The Sensaphone 1104 CottageSitter also allows you to turn a device on or off using the 1104 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 or enclosure and have wiring performed by a qualified electrician.

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.

99

Sensaphone

®

Model 1104 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.

100

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.

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 1104 BusinessSitter Edition

The Sensaphone 1104 BusinessSitter allows you to monitor and check on the status of your facility from any cellular or ordinary telephone. The Sensaphone 1104 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.

8.4 Model 1114 Line Seizure Edition

The Sensaphone Model 1114 operates identically to the Model

1104 except for the “line seizure” feature. The following is an explanation of the setup procedures unique to the Model 1114.

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 1114 is identical the Model 1104 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.

110

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.

111

Model 1104 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 1104 passed in each category tested. An example of such a log is shown below. (See “Test Log” at the end of this manual.)

If you require assistance, call Sensaphone Technical Support at

610-558-2700.

Appendix B: Troubleshooting

In the event that a problem is encountered, this section will assist you in determining the cause, so you can return the unit to its usual monitoring routine with minimal interruption.

Most problems with the Model 1104 are easy to identify and quickly corrected, and are found under the following general headings:

• Error Messages

• Communications/dial-out functions

• Temperature monitoring

• Sound level monitoring

• Other monitoring functions

If you have tried the solutions outlined in this section and are not satisfied with the results, call Sensaphone Technical Support at

610-558-2700, or follow the guidelines for shipping the Model

1104 to PHONETICS, INC. for repair (see Appendix F).

113

Error Messages

Problem

1. The unit says “Error 1.”

2. The unit says “Error 2.”

Cause

An invalid value has been entered or too much time has passed without entering a value.

Programming changes were attempted without unlocking the keypad.

Solution

Only enter values within the allowed programming range, and make programming changes in a timely fashion.

Unlock the keypad, then make programming changes.

Communications / Dial-out:

Problem

1. The Model 1104 fails to dial out.

Cause

a) The telephone number may be incorrectly programmed.

Solution

Recheck programming steps.

Refer to Chapter 4, Section 4.2.1.

b) Tone or pulse (the current dialing method) is not compatible with the telephone line on which the Model 1104 is installed.

Switch from the current setting: from tone to pulse, or from pulse to tone.

Refer to Chapter 4, Section 4.3.

c) Recognition Time is too long. An alert condition does not remain in effect long enough to become a valid alarm.

Reprogram Recognition Time. Set the

Recognition Time to the minimum duration required to create a valid alarm. If possible, test the new setting by deliberately creating an alert condition.

Refer to Chapter 5, Section 5.3.

d) Max Calls is set to zero.

Reprogram Max Calls. It is a good idea to set your Max Calls to at least equal the number of dial-out telephone numbers programmed.

Refer to Chapter 4, Section 4.12.1.

Communications / Dial-out:

Problem Cause

e) The Model 1104 is connected to an incompatible telephone line.

Solution

The Model 1104 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.

2. The Model 1104 will not answer the telephone when called for a Status Report or alarm acknowledgment.

a) Rings Until Answer is incorrectly programmed.

b) The Model 1104 is connected to an incompatible telephone line.

Recheck programming of Rings Until Answer.

Refer to Chapter 4, Section 4.5.1.

Some telephone systems will not allow the telephone to ring beyond 4 rings. If your

Model 1104’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 1104 to a standard, residential telephone line.

3. The Model 1104 will not answer the telephone for Callback

Acknowledgement.

You did not allow the telephone to ring

10 times. Note: If the TAD (telephone answering device) is disabled, the telephone rings ten times before the Model 1104 answers. If the

TAD is enabled, the telephone rings once before the Model 1104 answers the call.

When calling the Model 1104, and the TAD is disabled, allow the telephone to ring 10 times.

Refer to Chapter 6, Section 6.1.3, and Chapter

4, Section 4.6.3.

4. The Model 1104 recites the alarm message or Status Report over the telephone, but is silent at the installation site.

The local voice mute feature is in effect.

5. The Model 1104 dials out correctly but fails to audibly recite its alarm message when you answer the call.

Voice Reps is set to zero.

Deactivate local voice mute.

Refer to the programming steps in Chapter 4,

Section 4.9.

Reprogram Voice Reps to 1 or greater.

Refer to Chapter 4, Section 4.10.

6. The Model 1104 and telephone answering device (sharing the same line) answer incoming calls simultaneously.

The Model 1104’s number of Rings Until

Answer is set to equal the number of rings set for the telephone answering device.

Change the number of Rings Until Answer for the Model 1104.

Refer to Chapter 4, Section 4.5.

Temperature Monitoring:

Problem

1.

Can’t program temperature limits; or the unit won’t read the temperature sensor.

Cause

The input isn’t configured to read a temperature sensor.

2.

The temperature reading is -20° F or -30° C.

The temperature sensor has been disconnected or has broken wires.

Solution

Press SET and CONFIGURE to program the input. (See Section 5.1.1 for more information on configuring inputs.)

Examine the wires to temperature sensor and connect or replace wiring.

3.

Temperature reads 150° F or 65° C.

Temperature sensor wires are touching or have shorted.

Verify and correct wiring.

4.

Temperature reading is inaccurate.

a) Temperature sensing may be affected by a source of ambient heat (ie., direct sunlight, or heat duct proximity).

Try moving the unit to a different location.

b) Temperature may require calibration.

c) The unit is using the wrong temperature scale (Fahrenheit vs. Celsius).

After moving or placing the unit away from ambient heat sources, the temperature may be calibrated to offset inaccurate normal reading by several degrees.

Refer to Chapter 5, Section 5.6.

Verify temperature scale.

Refer to Chapter 5, Section 5.5.

5. False high temperature alarms from freezer.

6.

The Sensaphone calls with a high/low temperature alarm but recites a temperature that’s within the programmed limits.

Most freezers have a defrost cycle during which the temperature will rise considerably, thus causing an alarm to occur.

The Sensaphone recites the “current” temperature when it calls you, not the temperature at the time the alarm occurred. It is likely that the temperature has changed since the time the alarm was detected and has since returned to normal operating conditions.

Program an input recognition time longer than the defrost cycle.

Shorten the Call Delay or lengthen the Input

Recognition Time.

Sound Level Monitoring:

Problem

1.

False high sound alarms occur frequently.

2.

High sound does not cause an alarm.

Cause

The programmed sound sensitivity results in over-sensitivity to non-alarm sound as well as alarm sound.

Sound Recognition Time is too short.

Solution

Reprogram the sound sensitivity.

Refer to Chapter 5, Section 5.10.

The unit is not close enough to the high sound source, or the programmed sound setting results in a lack of sensitivity to high sound.

Lengthen the sound Recognition Time.

Refer to Chapter 5, Section 5.10.

Move the unit closer or reprogram the sound sensitivity.

Refer to Chapter 5, Section 5.10.

Other Monitoring:

Problem

1.

Alarm status of an alert input is incorrect.

Cause

Incorrect input normality.

Solution

Reconfigure the input.

Refer to Chapter 5, Section 5.1.

2.

False power out alarms Programmed Recognition Time is too short.

AC power is often subject to brief interruptions. To avoid frequent, false alarms, increase the power Recognition Time.

Refer to Chapter 5, Section 5.9.

3.

The Model 1104 does not recognize power failure.

a) Batteries are either incorrectly installed or drained.

b) Recognition time setting is too long.

To verify proper battery function, unplug the unit and verify continued operation using batteries only. If unit ceases to function, first try reinstalling the batteries. If this is not successful, replace the batteries.

Refer to Chapter 2, Section 2.4 for complete instructions.

Reprogram Recognition Time. Set the

Recognition Time to the minimum required before a valid alarm occurs. If possible, test the condition by deliberately creating an alert condition. Refer to Chapter 5, Section 5.9.

4.

The Model 1104 does not recognize any alarm. a) Inputs for alarm are disabled.

5.

The batteries drain prematurely.

Enable the inputs for alarm.

Refer to Chapter 5, Section 5.2.

b) Programmed Recognition Time is too long.

The unit’s AC transformer is unplugged or for some other reason, full AC power is not available to the unit.

Reprogram Recognition Time. Set the

Recognition Time to the minimum required for a monitored condition to become a valid alarm. If possible, test the condition by deliberately creating an alert condition.

Refer to Chapter 5, Section 5.3.

The batteries will take over powering the unit when the AC transformer is unplugged from the 120 VAC outlet. When storing the unit, be sure to remove the batteries.

Refer to Chapter 2, Section 2.4.

Be sure to use alkaline batteries—do not use rechargeable nicad batteries.

If the solutions offered above do not appear to correct the problem, apply the following steps, in the order shown.

• Remove the batteries.

• Unplug the unit.

• Wait one minute for the Model 1104 to completely power down.

• Plug in the unit’s AC adaptor into a standard 120 VAC outlet.

• Replace the batteries.

Refer to Chapter 2, Installation, for additional information on batteries and installation procedures.
