IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Your Model 800 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 800 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 800 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 800
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:
iii
Sensaphone® Model 800 User’s Manual
1. The power cord or plug is frayed or damaged.
2. Liquid has been spilled into the product or it has been exposed to water.
3. The unit has been dropped, or the cabinet is damaged.
4. The unit doesn’t function normally when you’re following the operating instructions.
• Avoid using a telephone (other than a cordless type) during
an electrical storm. There may be a remote risk of electric
shock from lightning.
• Do not use the telephone to report a gas leak in the vicinity
of the leak.
CAUTION
To Reduce the Risk of Fire or Injury to Persons, Read and Follow
these Instructions:
1.Use only the following type and size batteries:
Alkaline, size C.
2.Do not dispose of the batteries in a fire. The cell may
explode. Check with local codes for possible special disposal
instructions.
3.Do not open or mutilate the batteries. Released electrolyte is
corrosive and may cause damage to the eyes or skin. It may be
toxic if swallowed.
4.Exercise care in handling batteries in order not to short the
battery with conducting materials such as rings, bracelets, and
keys. The battery or conductor may overheat and cause burns.
5.Do not mix old and new batteries in this product.
iv
FCC Requirements
Part 68: The Sensaphone® Model 800 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 RENs 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 800 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:
SENSAPHONE
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.

Sensaphone® Model 800 User’s Manual
Part 15: This equipment has been tested and found to comply
with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part
15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide
reasonable protection against harmful interference 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 800, the Load Number is 0.3.

Chapter 2: Installation
2.3 Power Surge Protection
The Model 800 can be damaged by power surges and lightning
through the telephone line and the 120 VAC power supply.
Although the Model 800 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 800 is provided with a DC 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 800 uses six, C-cell alkaline
batteries. Do not use rechargeable batteries. Connect the DC
power transformer into the jack on the back of the unit and plug
the adapator into a 120VAC outlet
NOTE
Be sure that the DC transformer is plugged into an
outlet before installing batteries.

2.5 Starting the Model 800
When the DC power transformer is first plugged into the
electrical outlet, the Model 800 automatically starts in RUN
mode. The System On light will begin to glow. The unit will
respond with,“Hello, this is Sensaphone 800.”
2.6 Run Mode and Standby Mode
Pressing the RUN/STANDBY key on the Model 800 keypad
will alternately activate or deactivate the unit. If the unit is
activated and in RUN mode, the system on light glows steadily.
In STANDBY mode, the system on light goes out, but will blink
every few seconds to indicate that power is still supplied to the
unit.
In RUN mode, the Model 800 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 800 enters STANDBY mode, it responds
with “Goodbye.” The system on 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 alarms 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 800, 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.

Chapter 2: Installation
2.7 Telephone Line
The Model 800 will operate with all standard analog telephone
lines that accept pulse or tone dialing. The Model 800 cannot be
used on an extension line to dial its own telephone number. Also,
it may not be installed on a party line, pay telephone line, or
digital telephone system.
Certain private telephone systems and public switching equipment
may not accept the Model 800 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
800’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 one end of the modular cord
into the “line” jack on the back of the model 800 (as shown) and
plug the other end into any standard RJ11 phone outlet.
Refer to Figure 2-4.

Figure 2-4. Installing the Telephone Line
On the back of the Model 800 is an extra female telephone jack
labeled “EXT”. This is provided so that a telephone or other
answering device may be used on the same line as the unit.
25
Sensaphone® Model 800 User’s Manual
(It is not necessary to hook up a telephone for the Model 800
to operate.) This extension jack features Line Seizure which
means that it will disconnect the extension jack when the Model
800 needs to make a telephone call. To ensure that the unit has
priority over any other device on the line, you must connect all
extensions to this jack. (see figure)
On the unit there are two RJ11C phone jacks:
•The RJ11C jack labeled “LINE”is to be connected to the
incoming line of your phone service, ahead of all other
phones or telephone extensions.
• The RJ11C telephone jack labeled “EXT” is to be connected
to all extensions.
2.8 The Microphone
The Model 800 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 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 800 will dial out with
an alarm message.
26
Chapter 2: Installation
NOTE
The proximity of the audible alarm to the microphone
is extremely important.
Normally, the Model 800 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 800’s location.
When calling for a Status Report, the microphone permits
listening to on-site sounds for a programmed time interval.
2.9 Alert Zones
Open the input/output wiring door located above the keypad.
The Model 800 can monitor up to 8 zones (represented by the
numbered terminal screws shown in Figure 2-5, below).

ZONES
Figure 2-5. Alert Zones
Zones are configured as either dry contact or temperature. A zone
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 800 determines the way zones are configured by the type
of sensor connected to each alert zone (refer to Chapter 5.)
A zone configured as “temperature” is designed to evaluate a
range of settings. The Model 800 will read the temperature at the
sensor’s location and compare that value to programmed high
and low temperature limits. Temperature zones must be used with
Sensaphone’s 2.8K Remote Temperature Sensor or weatherproof
sensor.
NOTE
Before wiring, it is advisable to disable the zones to
prevent accidentally tripping an alarm. See Chapter 5.
27
Sensaphone® Model 800 User’s Manual
Important Note regarding Ultra-Low temperature freezers:
If you are connecting the Sensaphone to an ultralow temperature
freezer (-80° C) and the freezer is equipped with alarm terminals/
contacts you can connect these directly to one of the zones on
your Sensaphone (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
zone and its corresponding common (c). Two wire leads are used
to connect any monitoring sensor. Fasten one lead to the numbered
screw and the other lead to C. Tighten both screws. If the zone
was not disabled, the Model 800 may recite its “Alarm Exists”
message as you connect the sensor. If it does, just press ALARM
CANCEL to stop it. Re-enable the zone after wiring. Refer to
Figures 2-6 and 2-7 for connecting a sensor to an alert zone.

NOTE
Do not use sensors, switches, or relays that supply
any voltage or current to the Model 800. 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 800’s circuitry. Try to
place wires at least 6 inches from other electrical wiring or devices.
2.11 Multiple Sensors
The Model 800 may have more than one sensor connected to the
same alert zone, as long as the normal condition for each sensor
on the same alert zone is identical (either all N.O. or all N.C.).
However, only one remote temperature sensor can be used on
each zone.
When wiring several normally closed sensors on one zone, they
must be connected in series. Connect one lead from the first
sensor to the numbered screw of the alert zone. 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 common screw on the Model 800.

2.12 Outdoor Wiring
When wiring sensors outdoors, DO NOT allow exposed wires
to run freely in open air; under such conditions, the Model
30
Chapter 2: Installation
800 is susceptible to serious damage during a lightning storm.
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.

2 .13 Disconnecting the Model 800 for Storage or
Seasonal Use .
If you plan to employ the Model 800 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 800 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

Step 4: Set Temperature Limits
High and low temperature limits can be separately programmed
for each zone that is configured as temperature. Limits can range
from –20° to +150° Fahrenheit, or from –30° to 65° Celsius.
Default settings are: 10° F for low temperature and 100° F
for high temperature. Do not set temperature limits too close to
normal room temperature, since minor fluctuations could result in
frequent and unnecessary alarm dialouts.

This concludes minimum programming to achieve normal
operation of the Model 800. In addition to the programming just
accomplished, default settings for many more features take effect
when the unit is first powered. You will be able to reprogram
most of these factory-set defaults to suit your application.
For a complete explanation of each feature (with illustrations of
keystrokes), refer to Chapter 4: Communications Programming
and Chapter 5: Alarm Programming.
To gain a basic understanding of how the alarm dial-out feature
works, refer to this chapter, Section 3-4. For extended information
regarding dial-out and related programmable parameters, refer to
Chapter 7: Operation.

Sensaphone® Model 800 User’s Manual
3.4 Summary of the Alarm Dial-Out Process
Action—Response
Programmable Feature
1. THE MODEL 800 DETECTS AN
ALERT CONDITION
• Recognition Time
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 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 800 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.
38
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.

4.1 Voice Messages
The 800’s digital speech recording feature allows you to
record custom messages for each of the eight Zones and an ID
Message. This means that when the 800 calls you during an
alarm, you will hear a personalized Voice Message identifying
the unit and telling you exactly what alarm condition exists. You
can record a separate message for each of the eight Zones. The
message can run a maximum of 5 seconds. The ID Message
can be a maximum of 8 seconds. You can shorten the message
length by pressing the ENTER key after reciting the message.
The ID Message is used to identify the unit. This could be a
particular building name, its location (address or city), or some
other identifier.

4.2 The Unit ID Number
The Unit ID Number is the identification number of the Model
800. This number is typically the telephone number where the
unit is installed, or it may be designated using any number that
best suits your application.
The purpose of the Unit ID Number is to immediately provide the
source of any alarm, especially when using multiple Model 800
units in a complex monitoring system. When the Model 800 is
called from a remote location, it always begins its message with
the identification number:
“Hello, this is (Unit ID Number).”

Sensaphone to send a numeric page, or dial a telephone number
+ office extension, or combine pulse & touch-tone dialing in
the same telephone number. Multiple codes can be used during
telephone number programming if required. See section 4.5.4 for
special instructions on dialing to a beeper or pager.
Code 1 Pager
When CODE + 1 is inserted as the first digit of the telephone
number, the Model 800 will make a pager call. This means that
the unit will expect the call to be answered by a paging service
provider, then it will send its ID number (using touch-tones),
followed by the digits that identify the zone(s) in alarm. The
unit will hang-up after it completes the call. See section 4.5.4 for
specific programming examples for dialing a pager.
Code 2 Wait-For-Answer
You can force your Sensaphone to Wait-For-Answer in the
middle of dialing a telephone number. This is useful when
calling a telephone extension that is initially answered by an autoattendant. By inserting the wait-for-answer code you can instruct
your Sensaphone to call the main number, then wait for an answer
by the auto-attendant, then dial the extension. The Sensaphone
will not speak it’s voice message until the telephone is answered
at the extension.

Code 3 Switch to Touch-tone
This command allows you to change from pulse dialing to touchtone dialing in the middle of dialing a telephone number. This is
useful when your telephone service only supports pulse dialing,
but you need to send touch-ones after connecting – such as when
dialing a numeric pager or navigating a voice menu.

Your Sensaphone can be programmed to send an alarm message
to a numeric beeper/pager. The message will include the
Sensaphone’s telephone number (ID number) and the Zone
numbers that are in alarm. For example, if zones 1 and 4 are
in alarm, the message on your pager would be: 8882227777-14, where 8882227777 is the unit’s ID number. A Sound alarm
will appear as alarm -9 and a Power alarm will appear as alarm
-0. To program a telephone number for Pager dialout, you must
enter Code 1 at the beginning of the telephone number. The
Sensaphone will say “Code one, Pager” when you enter the
command.
Follow the key sequence below to dial a numeric pager:
SET + PHONE NUMBER + any unassigned number key 1-8 +
CODE + 1 + pager telephone number + ENTER
To check your programming:
WHAT IS + PHONE NUMBER + assigned # 1-8
The Sensaphone will say “Pager”, followed by the programmed
telephone number.
To send a test page:
SET + TEST + assigned # key 1-8 + ENTER
The Sensaphone will let you listen to the dialout sequence
through its speaker and send you a message that includes the
Sensaphone’s telephone number (ID number).
Voice Prompted Paging Systems
If your paging provider is answered by a voice prompt which
requires you to enter one or more touch-tones to send a message,
then use the wait-for-answer code (4.5.1) in combination with
the Pause key and other number keys to navigate the voice menu
until you reach the message entry point. The Sensaphone will
automatically send it’s telephone number, Zone numbers, and a
pound (#) tone at the end of the number. For assistance contact
Sensaphone Technical Support at 1(877)373-2700.

4.8 TAD (Telephone Answering Device)
The TAD feature is especially useful because it integrates the
operation of the Model 800 with your telephone answering
device (e.g. answering machine) in a way that retains the full
flexibility of each system. This allows you to have on-demand
telephone access to the Model 800, 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 4.6.
NOTE
The TAD feature only applies to answering devices
connected to the same telephone line as the Model
800.

Chapter 4: Communications Programming
Example:
Telephone answering device, rings = 4
Model 800, 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 800 can be accessed remotely, by telephone, to obtain the
Status Report.
1. Dial the telephone number of the Model 800.
2. Let the telephone ring once and then hang up.
3. Wait approximately ten seconds
4. Call the Model 800 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 800 to answer your
incoming call, bypassing the telephone answering device.
NOTE
Special Case: If the Model 800 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 800 will
interpret this pattern as a signal to answer the telephone. If this occurs, press any key on the Model 800
to hang up.
4.8.3 No TAD In Use
If a telephone answering device is not used on the same telephone
line as the Model 800, 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.

4.9 Listen-in Time
The Listen-in Time is the amount of time you can listen to sounds
from the Model 800’s built-in microphone at its installation
site. When you call in for a Status Report, the Model 800
announces Listen-in Time at the end of its first round of status
readings, saying, “Listen 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
5.11.1.

4.10 Call Delay
Call Delay is the programmed length of time the Model 800
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 4-12.)
The purpose for Call Delay is to allow time for personnel at the
Model 800’s installation site to respond to and cancel an alarm
before dial-out begins. During this time, the Model 800 will
audibly repeat its “alarm” message (unless the Local Voice Mute
feature has been activated—refer to Section 4.10). The default for
Call Delay is 30 seconds. Call Delay can be programmed from 0
seconds to 60 minutes (1 hour).

4.14 Maximum Number of Calls (Max Calls)
The Max Calls feature controls the total number of repeated
calling attempts by the Model 800 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 the
alarm is acknowledged or until the 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 1 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 800 will automatically acknowledge any alarm and stop the
dial-out.
NOTE
If only one telephone number is programmed, the
Model 800 will dial out a maximum of 15 times to
report an alarm in accordance with FCC rules.

Chapter 5: Alarm Programming
Chapter 5: Alarm Programming
This chapter explains the alarm programming and monitoring
capabilities of the Model 800, with specific instructions for the
following features:
• Configure zones as dry contact or temperature
• Enable/disable zones
• Program alarm Recognition Time for each zone
• 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 Zone Configuration
In preparing the Model 800 to sense an alert condition, the zones
must be configured as dry contact (either open or closed) or as
temperature zones. The default setting for zone 1 is temperature;
for zones 2-8, the default is dry contact and open. To configure
zone 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 zones.)
The configuration process directs the Model 800 to initialize the
8 zones and establish normal settings. Any change in the status of
a zone (for example, from a normally open contact to a suddenly
closed contact) is recognized as an alert condition. In the case
of a temperature zone, an alert condition is recognized when
established temperature limits are exceeded.
NOTE
Before starting keyboard commands to configure
zone normality on the Model 800, it is very important to check that the sensors you have wired to the
unit are set in their normal, non-alarm positions.
69
Sensaphone® Model 800 User’s Manual
For example, if a magnetic reed switch (a normallyclosed sensor used to detect unauthorized entry) has
been wired to the Model 800, make sure that the door
or window to be monitored is shut before configuring
the zone. 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.

the zone, and says “normally closed.”
• If the zone is configured as temperature, the Model 800
recites the number of the zone, followed by “Temperature.”

5.2 Enable/Disable Zones
This function allows you to enable or disable a zone’s response
to an alert condition. An enabled zone will respond to an alert
condition and allow dial-out. A disabled zone 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 zones (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 zone status after
performing any task that requires disabling. The default setting
for all zones is enabled (ON).
If an alert condition exists when zones are re-enabled,
Recognition Time will restart—refer to Section 5.3.
5.2.1 Changing Enabled/Disabled Zone Status

The Model 800 audibly recites the current status of every zone. In
a Status Report, each zone is first identified by its zone number,
followed by a report that specifies parameters currently affecting
that zone. If a zone is disabled, the word “Alarm Disabled”
immediately follows the number recited for that zone.
For example, zone 3 is configured as a normally open, dry contact
zone. During the Status Report:
•If disabled, the Model 800 recites:
“Zone 3, the Alarm is Disabled” for zone 3.
•If enabled, the Model 800 recites:
“Zone 3—OK,” for zone 3.
In another example, zone 2 is configured as a temperature zone.
The current temperature is 76 degrees. During a Status Report:
•If disabled, the Model 800 recites:
“Zone 2, the alarm is disabled, it is now 76 degrees
fahrenheit—OK”
•If enabled, the Model 800 recites:
“Zone 2—76 degrees fahrenheit—OK.”
5.3 Zone Recognition Time
The Zone 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 540 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 800 initiates dial-out. The default setting for
Zone Recognition Time is 0 minutes, 3 seconds.

5.10 Sound Alarm Monitoring
This feature allows you to program the level and duration of
sound that will cause the Model 800 to respond to an alarm and
dial-out. It may be useful to desensitize the Model 800 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 160. A value of 1 makes the microphone the MOST sensitive
to changes in sound. The value 160 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 800 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 800 keypad by pressing WHAT IS, followed by STATUS,
(key sequence shown below). This allows you approximately 40
seconds to exit without activating the Model 800’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
Chapter 6: Acknowledgment, Status Report & Remote Access
In addition to communication and alarm monitoring capabilities,
the Model 800 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.
• Limited programming.
6.1 Alarm Acknowledgment
When the Model 800 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 800 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 4.13 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 800), press the ALARM CANCEL 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 800, reporting
that an alarm exists. The message concludes: “Enter
Acknowledgement code.” Now, or at any time during this call,
87
Sensaphone® Model 800 User’s Manual
you may acknowledge the alarm with the code “555” if you are
using a Touch-Tone™ telephone.
• To enter “555,” press the number (5) key on the Touch-Tone™
phone keypad three times. The Model 800 will respond:
“Alarm Acknowledged.” The Model 800 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
800 will respond: “Error, Enter Acknowledgement code.”
If you do not enter the acknowledgement a second time the
unit will say “error” then “goodbye” and 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, announce the alarm,
then say “Alarm Acknowledged.” This indicates that the alarm
has been acknowledged.
To enable or disable Callback Acknowledgement:
1. Press SENSOR ON/OFF.
SENSOR
ON/OFF
2. Press STATUS.
STATUS
The Model 800 will say “Callback Acknowledgement Enabled”
to indicate that Callback Acknowledgment is Enabled, or
“Callback Acknowledgement Disabled” to indicate that Callback
Acknowledgement is Disabled. This method of remote alarm
acknowledgment works with any telephone: pulse, rotary, or
Touch-Tone™.
88
Chapter 6: Acknowledgment, Status Report & Remote Access
Example: The Model 800 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 800 back on any telephone. You
must wait for 10 rings—this signals the Model 800 to
answer your telephone call. (Make sure to call back within
the programmed setting for Intercall Time—refer to Chapter
4, Section 4.12.)
When the Model 800 answers your return call, it announces the
alarm. Then it says: “Alarm Acknowledged.” This indicates that
the alarm has been acknowledged.
NOTE
If you have the TAD feature ( telephone answering
device) enabled, call the unit and let the phone ring
once, then hang up. Wait a few seconds then call the
unit back a second time. The model 800 will now
answer on the first ring. If TAD 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 4.7, 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 800 will answer an
incoming telephone call following the programmed Rings Until
Answer (refer to Chapter 4, Section 4.6). 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 4.8).
To initiate the Status Report:
1. Press WHAT IS.
WHAT
IS
89
Sensaphone® Model 800 User’s Manual
2. Press STATUS.
STATUS
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 555-1234 (or the programmed ID), (Custom ID
Message).”
“It is now 12:15pm (or the current time).”
The Model 800 proceeds with a separate report for each zone. Each zone identifies itself by reciting the zone number and it’s
associated voice message.
6.2.1 Example: Status Report, No Alarms
Zones 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 are configured as dry contact and
zone 1 is configured as temperature. No alarms exist. The Status
Report begins by saying, “Hello, this is 555-1234, this is building
M, third floor; it is now 2:30 pm.”
Following this introduction, the report continues:
“Zone 1, room temperature, 74 degrees, OK.”
“Zone 2, door alarm, OK.”
“Zone 3, ups alarm, OK.”
“Zone 4, water sensor, OK.”
“Zone 5, OK.”
“Zone 6, OK.”
“Zone 7, OK.”
“Zone 8, OK.”
“The sound is OK.”
“The power is ON.” This refers to AC power.
“The batteries are OK.” Other possible responses: “Batteries
are low” or “Replace batteries.” (Refer to Section 6.2.4 for
additional information regarding battery condition.)
“The output is off.”
90
Chapter 6: Acknowledgment, Status Report & Remote Access
“Listen to the sound 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 800
concludes the call, saying: “Goodbye.” (The Status Report will
not repeat if obtained at the keypad; “Goodbye,” 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
Zones 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 are configured as dry contact and
zone 1 is 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 zones 1, 2, 3, and 4.
You happen to call in for the Status Report, which begins with,
Hello, this is 555-1234; “this is the Sensaphone 800 at ACME
Greenhouse, 225 Oak Street”
It is now 8:45 PM
Zone 1, “Temperature in greenhouse”, 110 degrees Fahrenheit,
too high, acknowledged alarm exists
Zone 2, “Door alarm in greenhouse”, not OK, acknowledged

6.2.3 Example: Status Report, Disabled Zones
If a zone is disabled, the dial-out feature for that zone is
deactivated, but all other programmed parameters remain in
effect. In the example below, all 8 zones are disabled, although
zones 1 and 3 are detecting alarms. AC power and Sound Level
are also disabled for dial-out. When you call the Model 800 for a
Status Report, you hear the following:
Hello, this is 555-1234; “this is the Sensaphone 800 at ACME

Chapter 6: Acknowledgment, Status Report & Remote Access
6.2.4 Battery Condition
During a Status Report, you may hear one of three possible
messages regarding battery power. The Model 800 determines the
appropriate message by measuring battery voltage. Depending
upon the remaining voltage, it may respond:
• “The batteries are OK,” if over 8.2 Volts.
• “The batteries are 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
You can issue a number of commands to the 800 remotely using
a Touch-Tone™ telephone. This command mode can be entered
at any time during the status report. Simply press a Touch-Tone™

now in Touch-Tone™ command mode. Commands are available
to perform the following functions:
• Enable and disable zones, power monitoring, and sound
monitoring
• Recite/Set High and Low alarm limits
• Recite/Set telephone numbers
• Record/Play custom voice messages
• Recite/Set the relay output
• Activate the microphone for listen-in
• Recite status report
Note: If a security code is enabled, the 800
will prompt you with “Enter security code.”
Enter the four-digit keypad security code plus
“#” to enter touch-tone command mode. If
entered correctly, the 800 will respond with
“OK” and you can proceed to enter the commands. If entered incorrectly, the unit will give
you one more chance. If it is incorrect a second
time, the unit will say “Error, goodbye” and
hang up.

Chapter 7: Operation
Chapter 7: Operation
After installation and programming is completed, the Model 800
is fully operational. This chapter explains the sequence of events
that occur during an alarm dialout to illustrate how the Model 800
operates.
7.1 Alarm Detection, Dial-out and Acknowledgment
Generally, an alarm event is structured in the following manner:
I. The Model 800 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.
97
Sensaphone® Model 800 User’s Manual
I.Model 800 Detects a Change at the Sensor
• Model 800 detects a change in the
monitored condition (from the sensor
wired to one of the zones). 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 800 will determine
that a valid alarm exists.
• When a valid alarm is determined, Call
Delay is activated, forcing the Model 800
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 800’s
installation site, before dial-out occurs.
An audible voice message indicates
which of the zones is in alarm. If on-site
personnel acknowledge the alarm within
the Call Delay time, the Model 800
will not dial out. (Local Voice Mute is
disabled, so that alarm messages can be
heard at the site.)

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
800’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
800 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
800 recites the alarm message.
Voice Repetitions: Activated
• Call Progress, an automatic feature,
enables the Model 800 to detect whether
or not the telephone call is answered. After
10 rings, or if a busy signal is encountered,
the Model 800 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 800 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 800 will immediately begin reciting
a message that indicates which of the
zones is in alarm. At the same time, the
alarm message is repeating at the Model
800’s installation site. The Model 800 will
request acknowledgment, if it has not yet
occurred.

The Model 800 waits 10 seconds for the
Touch-Tone code “555” to be entered. If
the code is entered within 10 seconds, it
responds:
Touch-Tone
Acknowledgment:
Normal Code 555
“Alarm acknowledged.”
The alarm is considered acknowledged
and the dialout concludes.
• If the Model 800 does not receive the
Touch-Tone code within 10 seconds, it
recites the following:
“Error, enter acknowledgement code.”
If the Model 800 does not receive the
acknowledgement code a second time,
it says “error, goodbye” and hangs up.
The recipient of this message must call
the Model 800 back within the period
programmed for Intercall Time, in order
to acknowledge the alarm. If Local

are dialed sequentially, and this cycle
continues for the number of Max Calls
programmed. If no acknowledgment
occurs, then at the completion of
Max Calls, the alarm is automatically
acknowledged and the dial-out process is
terminated.

Chapter 8: Controlling the Output
Chapter 8: Controlling the Output
The Sensaphone 800 includes a relay output that can be used to
control a light, siren, or other device. The output is a Form-C
Normally Open/Normally Closed mechanical relay and is rated
for up to 30VAC/VDC 1A. A sample wiring diagram is shown
below:
Figure 1: Relay output connected to alarm
The output can be programmed to operate in one of 13 automatic
modes or it can operate in manual mode (default). The 13

8.3 Typical Applications
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 add antifreeze to 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 Sensaphone 800 to raise the
thermostat and 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
106
Chapter 8: Controlling the Output
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.
8.3.1 Single Thermostat Control
There are two installation methods that can be used to remotely
change the thermostat setting in your cottage or cabin; the
single thermostat method and the dual thermostat method (see
section 8.3.2 for details on the dual thermostat method). The
single thermostat method requires you to install a model with an
input to switch between two temperature settings. Sensaphone
offers a 7-day programmable thermostat and power supply which
has this feature (order part #’s FGD-0064 & XFR-0024). This
thermostat has been carefully chosen to work with the model 800
to allow remote control between normal or vacation mode. You
will need to replace your current thermostat, so if you are unsure
about performing this work yourself, please contact a licensed
heating/cooling professional for installation assistance. Follow the
manufacturer’s instructions for installing the thermostat.
The Model 800 will need to be wired to the thermostat to control
it. For a visually appealing installation you may want to locate
the Sensaphone close to your heater so that the cable follows the
same path as the one from your heater to the thermostat. An added
benefit of this location is that you can easily add a water sensor to
monitor for leaks around your hot water heater or other plumbing.
Typically the water heater is located near the heating and cooling
system.
Step 1: Install the thermostat.
Refer to the manufacturer’s instructions for installation. For
installation assistance, contact Aube Technologies at 1-800-831AUBE.
Step 2: Mount the Sensaphone 800.
Choose a location for your Sensaphone that allows for easy wiring
to the thermostat, such as near your heater/air conditioning system.
Mount the unit on a wall or flat on a desktop or table surface. Plug
in the power supply and connect the telephone line.
107
Sensaphone® Model 800 User’s Manual
Step 3: Connect cable from thermostat to Sensaphone 800.
This Sensaphone 800 has a terminal strip below the input/output
wiring door that will connect to the 12VDC power supply and X
& C terminals of the thermostat (See Figure 1). This connection
is required to switch the thermostat between normal and vacation
modes. Run a two-conductor cable from the thermostat to the
Model 800. On the thermostat, connect the red wire to the X (+)
terminal, and the black wire to the C (-) terminal. On the 800,
connect the red wire to the NO terminal. Connect the black wire
to the negative wire from the power supply. Use a wire nut to
complete this connection. Connect the positive wire from the
power supply to the “C” terminal on the model 800.

vacation modes.
Controlling the Thermostat
The operating mode of the thermostat (normal/vacation) can be
controlled at the Model 800 keypad or remotely via Touch‑Tone
commands. Both methods are described below:
108
Chapter 8: Controlling the Output
Keypad commands:
1) To enable Vacation Mode, press the [SENSOR ON/OFF] key,
then the [OUTPUT] key. The unit will respond by saying “ON”
to indicate that Vacation Mode is set. The Suitcase icon
will appear and blink on the thermostat LCD.
2) To enable Normal Mode, press the [SENSOR ON/OFF] key,
then the [OUTPUT] key. The unit will respond by saying “OFF”
to indicate that Normal Mode is set. The Sun
or Moon
icon will appear on the thermostat LCD.
TouchTone Commands:
Call the Sensaphone. When the unit answers, it will begin reciting
a status report. At any time during the call, press a Touch-Tone.
The unit will respond with “OK.” The Sensaphone is now ready to
accept Touch-Tone commands.
1) To enable Vacation Mode, press SRO (776). The unit will
respond by saying “ON” to indicate that Vacation Mode is set.
The Suitcase icon
will appear and blink on the thermostat
LCD.
2) To enable Normal Mode, press SRO (776). The unit will
respond by saying “OFF” to indicate that Normal Mode is set.
or Moon
icon will appear on the thermostat
The Sun
LCD.
3) To check the status of the ouput press WRO (976). The unit
will respond “OFF” for Normal Mode or “ON” for Vacation
Mode.
4) Hang up.
8.3.2 Dual Thermostat Control
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
109
Sensaphone® Model 800 User’s Manual
preferred “home” temperature. With your Sensaphone 800, you
will be able to switch between these two thermostats using the
relay output.
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.
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
NC (Normally Closed) terminal while the “home” thermostat be
connected to the N0 (Normally Open) terminal of the Sensaphone.
This way, it’s easy to understand which state your furnace is in:
Output ON = Home and Output 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
800.

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 .3 .3 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).

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 residence 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
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
111
Sensaphone® Model 800 User’s Manual
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.
112
Appendix A: Weekly Testing
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 zones 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 zone 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 power is off”
and “batteries are 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.
113
Sensaphone® Model 800 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 800
passed in each category tested. An example of such a log is
shown below. (See “Test Log” at the end of this manual.)

by a source of ambient heat (ie., direct
sunlight, or heat duct proximity).
Temperature sensor wires are touching or
have shorted.

6.
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.
Sound Recognition Time is too short.
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.
High sound does not cause an alarm.
Reprogram the sound sensitivity.
Refer to Chapter 5, Section 5.10.
The programmed sound sensitivity results in
over-sensitivity to non-alarm sound as well as
alarm sound.
1. False high sound alarms occur
frequently.
2.
Solution
Shorten the Call Delay or lengthen the Zone
Recognition Time.
Program an zone recognition time longer than
the defrost cycle.
Cause
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.
Most freezers have a defrost cycle
during which the temperature will rise
considerably, thus causing an alarm to
occur.
Problem
Sound Level Monitoring:
The Sensaphone calls with a high/
low temperature alarm but recites a
temperature that’s within the programmed
limits.
5. False high temperature alarms from
freezer.
Appendix B: Troubleshooting

122
Reconfigure the zone.
Refer to Chapter 5, Section 5.1.
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.
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.
Incorrect zone normality.
Programmed Recognition Time is too short.
a) Batteries are either incorrectly installed
or drained.
b)
1. Alarm status of an alert zone is
incorrect.
False power out alarms
The Model 800 does not recognize power
failure.
2.
3.
Recognition time setting is too long.
Solution
Cause
Problem
Other Monitoring:
Sensaphone® Model 800 User’s Manual
The Model 800 does not recognize
any alarm.
The batteries drain prematurely.
4.
5.
Be sure to use alkaline batteries—do not
use rechargeable batteries.
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.
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.
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.
Enable the zones for alarm.
Refer to Chapter 5, Section 5.2.
a) Zones for alarm are disabled.
