FCC Requirements
Part 68: The Sensaphone® Model 1108 complies with Part 68 of
the FCC rules. On the back of the unit there is a label that
contains, among other information, the FCC Registration Number
and the Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) for this equipment.
You must, upon request, provide this information to your local
telephone company.
The REN is useful to determine the quantity of devices that you
may connect to your telephone line and still have all of those
devices ring when your telephone number is called. In most, but
not all areas, the sum of the REN’s of all devices connected to one
iv
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.

telephone company. Connection to party lines is subject to state
tariffs.
Should the Model 1108 cause harm to the telephone network, the
telephone company may discontinue your service temporarily. If
possible, they will notify you in advance. But if advance notice
isn’t practical, the telephone company may temporarily
discontinue service without notice and you will be notified as
soon as possible. You will be informed of your right to file a
complaint with the FCC. The telephone company may make
changes in its facilities, equipment, operations, or procedures
where such action is reasonably required in the operation of its
business and is not inconsistent with the rules and regulations of
the FCC that could affect the proper functioning of your
equipment. If they do, you will be notified in advance to give you
an opportunity to maintain uninterrupted telephone service.
If you experience trouble with this equipment, or you need
information on obtaining service or repairs, please contact:
SENSAPHONE, INC.

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.

Chapter 1: Introduction
Chapter 1: Introduction
The Sensaphone® Model 1108 is a fully-programmable,
environmental monitoring system that offers extensive on-site and
remote monitoring capability to small businesses, private homes,
farms, greenhouses, computer rooms, and remote facilities.
Designed for desktop or wall mounting, the Model 1108 is simple
to install, program and operate; no changes to standard electrical
or telephone service are required. Connected to a telephone line,
it will respond to an alarm by dialing up to eight separate
telephone numbers. When the call is answered, an “Alert
Condition” message is delivered in digitized speech.
The Model 1108 features built-in sensors to monitor a variety of
conditions:
• High sound level
• AC electric power failure
• Battery backup
• Temperature*
*Note: While technically not a “built-in” sensor, temperature is factory installed on input 1, and if left
installed will limit your additional inputs as listed
below to 7.
1108 is equipped with 8 alert inputs. Additional sensors* can be
added to extend monitoring capabilities to include:
• Intrusion or unauthorized entry
• Water leaks and seepage
• Temperature
• Humidity
• Equipment operation
• Other conditions that may require unique monitoring
solutions
* Refer to Appendix C for information on additional
sensors (available separately from Sensaphone) best
suited to your application.
The status of each monitored condition is readily obtained at the
unit's installation site, or remotely by telephone. At the close of
every Status Report, time is provided for listening to on-site
sounds.

Chapter 2: Installation
Correctly installing the Model 1108 will ensure proper
functioning of the unit. Please read the entire chapter before
starting the installation process.
Within the packaging will be a Warranty Registration Card.
Please take the time to fill this out and mail. The One Year
Limited Warranty is explained in the back of this manual.
2.1
Operating Environment
The Model 1108 should be installed and operated in an area that
provides space for wiring sensors to the screw terminals, near an
AC power source and telephone line. Operating temperature
ranges from 32° Fahrenheit (0° Celsius) to +120° Fahrenheit
(+49° Celsius).
NOTE
The Model 1108 is a sensitive electronic device. Do
not install the Model 1108 near strong electrostatic,
electromagnetic or radioactive fields. Do not expose
to fumes or corrosive vapors.
2.2
Mounting
Flat Mount: Place the Model 1108 on top of a desk or other
horizontal surface.
Wall Mount: Mount on a wall with two screws using the
keyholes on the back panel of the unit. Place the screws or bolts
313⁄16" apart at the desired height from the floor. Hook the unit over
the screws and toward the floor. Refer to Figure 2-1.

Sensaphone® Model 1108 User’s Manual
2.3
Power Surge Protection
The Model 1108 can be damaged by power surges and lightning
through the telephone line and the 120 VAC power supply.
Although the Model 1108 has built-in surge protection, we
recommend that additional protection be obtained for the unit and
for any electronic equipment that is attached to your power supply
and telephone lines. Power surge protection is especially
important if you live in a lightning-prone area. The ISOTEL Surge
Protector Model IB-4 is available through Sensaphone. See
Appendix C.
2.4
Power Supply and Battery Backup
The Model 1108 is provided with an AC power transformer that
will plug into any standard 120 VAC outlet and a battery backup
(batteries not included) that enables the unit to continue
functioning if AC power is removed (due to electric power
disruption or failure). The Model 1108 uses six, D-cell alkaline
batteries. Do not use rechargeable nicad batteries.
NOTE
Be sure that the AC transformer is plugged into an
outlet before installing batteries.
To install the batteries, open the battery compartment hatch
located underneath the unit, align batteries according to the
diagram shown in Figure 2-2, and replace the hatch.

2.5 Starting the Model 1108
When the AC power transformer is first plugged into the electrical
outlet, the Model 1108 automatically starts in RUN mode. The red
LED light will begin to glow. The unit will respond with “Hello,
this is Sensaphone 1108.”
16
Chapter 2: Installation
2.6 Run Mode and Standby Mode
Pressing the RUN/STANDBY key on the Model 1108 keypad will
alternately activate or deactivate the unit. If the unit is activated
and in RUN mode, the red LED (small red light on the upper right
of the unit's front panel) glows steadily. In STANDBY mode, the
red LED goes out, but will blink every few seconds to indicate
that power is still supplied to the unit.
In RUN mode, the Model 1108 is able to receive incoming calls
and to automatically dial out in the event of an alarm on one of
the monitored conditions. To enter STANDBY mode, press
RUN/STANDBY.
As soon as the Model 1108 enters STANDBY mode, it responds
with “Have a good day.” The red light immediately goes out and
then resumes with a blink every few seconds. While in
STANDBY mode, all functions are disabled, but programmed
memory is preserved. Upon exiting STANDBY mode, any
currently existing alert conditions will be announced.
NOTE
STANDBY mode is not equivalent to “power off”—
an electrical source, such as the 120 VAC, or the battery backup, continues to provide full power to the
unit. If the unit is placed in STANDBY mode,
unplugged from the 120 VAC outlet, and placed in
storage, the batteries will continue to power the
Model 1108, discharging until they fail.
Consequently, batteries should always be removed
from the unit following disconnection from any 120
VAC outlet, prior to storage.
Press the RUN/STANDBY key again to return to RUN mode.
Figure 2-3. The RUN/STANDBY Key
2.7
Telephone Line
The Model 1108 will operate with all standard telephone systems
that accept pulse or tone dialing. The Model 1108 cannot be used
on an extension line to dial its own telephone number. Also, it
may not be installed on a party line or pay telephone line.
17
Sensaphone® Model 1108 User’s Manual
Certain private telephone systems and public switching equipment
may not accept the Model 1108 dialing or may generate an
unacceptable ring signal. In those cases, a dedicated line may be
required. Consult the supplier of your telephone system if you
encounter problems.
If you do not have a modular telephone extension at the Model
1108’s location, you must contact your local telephone company
to have one installed (there is a charge for this service). If you
have four-pin jacks, adapters are available to convert them to the
modular plugs. Contact your local telephone company or
electronics parts store.
CAUTION
Never install telephone wiring during a lightning
storm. Never install telephone jacks in wet locations
unless the jack is specifically designed for wet locations. Never touch uninsulated telephone wires or terminals unless the telephone line has been disconnected at the network interface. Use caution when
installing or modifying telephone lines.
To install the telephone line, plug the modular telephone jack
provided into any standard RJ11 phone outlet. Refer to Figure

Figure 2-4. Installing the Telephone Line
On the back of the Model 1108 is a female telephone jack. This
is provided so that a telephone or other answering device may be
used on the same line as the unit. It is not necessary to hook up a
telephone for the Model 1108 to operate.
2.8
The Microphone
The Model 1108 is provided with a built-in microphone which is
used to monitor high sound levels produced near the installation
site. The sensitivity of the microphone is configurable and will
detect a continuous as well as a beeping alarm.
18
Chapter 2: Installation
Other programming options that apply to the microphone include
setting the length of time before a high sound causes an alarm.
If this sound level exists for 8 consecutive seconds (default) or for
the programmed length of time, the Model 1108 will dial out with
an alarm message.
NOTE
The proximity of the audible alarm to the microphone
is extremely important. Normally, the Model 1108
and the audible alarm must be in the same room. The
maximum distance can vary considerably depending
on the alarm, the acoustics, and the size of the room.
During an alarm dial-out, the microphone allows four-second
intervals to listen in to sounds at the Model 1108’s location.
When calling for a Status Report, the microphone permits
listening to on-site sounds for a programmed time interval.
2.9
Alert Inputs
The Model 1108 can monitor up to 8 inputs (represented by the
numbered terminal screws shown in Figure 2-5, below). Two input
terminals share the same ground.
Figure 2-5. Alert Inputs
Inputs are configured as either dry contact or temperature. An
input configured as dry contact can be used with any normally
open (N.O.) or normally closed (N.C.) device. Open refers to an
opened circuit path; if conditions cause the circuit to close, an
alert condition occurs. Closed refers to a continuous circuit path;
if a closed circuit is opened, an alert condition occurs. The Model
1108 determines the way inputs are configured by the type of
sensor connected to each alert input (refer to Chapter 5, Section
5.1).
An input configured as temperature is designed to evaluate a
range of settings. The Model 1108 will read the temperature at the
sensor’s location and compare that value to programmed high and
low temperature limits. Temperature inputs must be used with a
Sensaphone Remote Temperature Sensor.
19
Sensaphone® Model 1108 User’s Manual
NOTE
Before wiring, it is advisable to disable the inputs to
prevent accidentally tripping an alarm. Refer to
Chapter 5, Section 5.2.
2.10 Installing the Sensor
After you have selected the sensor, loosen the screw of the alert
input and its corresponding ground. Two wire leads are used to
connect any monitoring sensor. Fasten one lead to the numbered
screw and the other lead to GND. Tighten both screws. If the
input was not disabled, the Model 1108 may recite its “Alert
Condition Exists” message as you connect the sensor. If it does,
just press any key to stop. Re-enable the input after wiring. Refer
to Figures 2-6 and 2-7 for connecting a sensor to an alert input.
Figure 2-6. Sensor Connected to an Alert Input
Any sensor can be attached to the Model 1108 using 22-gauge
wire. The sensor can be several hundred feet from the unit, as
long as the total resistance of the circuit is not greater than 50
ohms. Use wire appropriate for the application.
20
Chapter 2: Installation
Figure 2-7. Two Sensors Wired to Adjacent Inputs
Share the Same Ground Terminal Screw
NOTE
Do not use sensors, switches, or relays that supply
any voltage or current to the Model 1108. Be aware
of proximity to other electrical wires or components
when placing wires that lead from the sensors to the
unit. Avoid running the wires near electrical devices
that use high voltage or current, such as motors,
heavy machinery, etc. This voltage may be inductively coupled into the sensor wiring and could result in
damage to the the Model 1108’s circuitry. Try to
place wires at least 6 inches from other electrical
wiring or devices.
2.11 Multiple Sensors
The Model 1108 may have more than one sensor connected to the
same alert input, as long as the normal condition for each sensor
on the same alert input is identical (either all N.O. or all N.C.).
However, only one remote temperature sensor can be used on
each input.
When wiring several normally closed sensors on one input, they
must be connected in series. Connect one lead from the first
sensor to the numbered screw of the alert input. Next, take the
other lead from the first sensor and connect it to one lead from
the next sensor. Continue connecting sensors end-to-end until you
have connected all of your sensors. Take the second lead from the
last sensor and connect it to the ground screw on the Model 1108.
See Figure 2-8. Multiple N.C. sensors are typically magnetic reed
switches to monitor the security of windows and doors.
21
Sensaphone® Model 1108 User’s Manual
Figure 2-8. Multiple Normally Closed Sensors
To wire several normally open sensors to one alert input, connect
them in parallel. To do this, take one lead from each sensor and
attach it to the numbered terminal. Then, take the second lead
from each sensor and attach each to the corresponding ground
screw. Refer to Figure 2-9.
Figure 2-9. Multiple Normally Open Sensors
2.12 Outdoor Wiring
When wiring sensors outdoors, DO NOT allow exposed wires to
run freely in open air; under such conditions, the Model 1108 is
susceptible to serious damage during a lightning storm.
Depending upon the distance outdoor wiring must travel,
consideration should be given to use of shielded wire inside a
metal conduit. Both shield and conduit should be connected to
earth ground. This prevents stray voltage from entering the unit.
22
Chapter 2: Installation
Figure 2-10. Potential Sensor Damage from Stray Electrical
Noise
2.13 Disconnecting the Model 1108 for Storage or
Seasonal Use.
If you plan to employ the Model 1108 as a seasonal “watchdog”
for a few months during the year, you must disconnect all wires
from the unit completely to avoid damage to the circuitry when
the unit is not in use. If the unit is unplugged but left in place
with all the sensors still connected, the wires act as antennae that
draw in any stray “electrical noise” from such devices as fans,
blowers, microwaves, etc.
Additionally, it is important to remove the batteries, or they will
discharge until they fail.
Preserve your Model 1108 during the off-season, or when not in
use:
• Remove the sensor wires at the screw terminals
• Remove the batteries
• Unplug the unit and store in a safe place

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

4.6 TAD (Telephone Answering Device)
The TAD feature is especially useful because it integrates the
operation of the Model 1108 with your telephone answering
device in a way that retains the full flexibility of each system.
This allows you to have on-demand telephone access to the Model
1108, for obtaining a Status Report, or for issuing call-in
commands, while your telephone answering device is set to
receive outside calls. Programming for use with a telephone
answering device (TAD) is always used in conjunction with Rings
Until Answer, detailed in section 4.5.
NOTE
The TAD feature only applies to answering devices
connected to the same telephone line as the Model
1108.
4.6.1 TAD Enable/Disable
To enable/disable the TAD feature:
1.
Press SENSOR ON/OFF.
2.
Press RING/TAD.
The Model 1108 will respond: “On.” (If the Model 1108 says
“Off,” repeat steps 1 and 2 to reactivate TAD.)
4.6.2 Using the TAD Feature
1.
Make sure the TAD feature is enabled on the Model 1108.
(The default setting is disabled, so you must enable it first.)
2.
Determine the number of rings your telephone answering
device uses to answer the telephone. (Most answering devices
require 4 rings; others are selectable.)
3.
On the Model 1108, program Rings Until Answer to a greater
number than the number of rings set on your answering
machine.
Example:
Telephone answering device, rings = 4
Model 1108, Rings Until Answer = 6
43
Sensaphone® Model 1108 User’s Manual
Using the procedure just outlined, all incoming calls will be
answered by the telephone answering device, allowing it to
operate normally. With the programming just accomplished, the
Model 1108 can be accessed remotely, by telephone, to obtain the
Status Report.
1.
Dial the telephone number of the Model 1108.
2.
Let the telephone ring once and then hang up.
3.
Wait approximately ten seconds
4.
Call the Model 1108 back.
It will answer the telephone on the first ring.
Explanation: The pattern of one ring, followed by a second call
(within 30 seconds), signals the Model 1108 to answer your
incoming call, excluding the telephone answering device.
NOTE
Special Case: If the Model 1108 shares the same line
with a telephone answering device, and during certain
time periods, frequent, incoming calls are expected
on that line, then you may want to temporarily disable the TAD feature. If you leave the TAD enabled, it
will not adversely affect normal operation, but if two
outside telephone calls are received within the same
30-second time window, the Model 1108 will interpret this pattern as a signal to answer the telephone.
If this occurs, press any key on the Model 1108 to
hang up.
4.6.3 No TAD In Use
If a telephone answering device is not used on the same telephone
line as the Model 1108, make sure that the TAD feature is
disabled, or turned off. Only Rings Until Answer programming
will determine how incoming calls are answered. For example, if
you program Rings Until Answer to 3, incoming calls will be
answered in 3 rings.

4.8 Call Delay
Call Delay is the programmed length of time the Model 1108
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 1108’s installation site to respond to and cancel an alarm
before dial-out begins. During this time, the Model 1108 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).

4.11 Intercall Time
The Intercall Time is the programmable period of time the Model
1108 waits in calling subsequent telephone numbers. Intercall
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 1108 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 1108 in the event of an alarm.
When an alarm occurs, the dial-out process begins, and continues
to cycle through your programmed telephone numbers until a
maximum number of calls is reached. The Max Calls setting
regulates the number of calls that will be made as a result of any
alarms; if more than one alarm is detected at once, or if a second
alarm occurs during dial-out on the first alarm, the Max Calls
setting will start the calling process from zero, until the
programmed number of calling attempts are completed.
The default setting for Max Calls is 100, but it may be
programmed from 0 to 255 calls. Max Calls is cancelled when an
alarm is acknowledged. If the maximum number of calls is
completed and no alarm acknowledgement has occurred, the
Model 1108 will automatically acknowledge any alarm and stop
the dial-out.
NOTE

5.1 Input Configuration
In preparing the Model 1108 to sense an alert condition, the
inputs must be configured as dry contact (either open or closed)
or as temperature inputs. The default setting for input 1 is
temperature; for inputs 2-8, the default is dry contact and open.
To configure input normality, sensors are first wired to the
terminal strip at the back of the unit. (Refer to Chapter 2, Section
2.9–2.12, for an explanation on wiring inputs.)
The configuration process directs the Model 1108 to initialize the
eight inputs and establish normal settings. Any change in the
status of an input (for example, from a normally open contact to a
suddenly closed contact) is recognized as an alert condition. In
the case of a temperature input, an alert condition is recognized
when established temperature limits are exceeded.
NOTE
Before starting keyboard commands to configure
input normality on the Model 1108, it is very important to check that the sensors you have wired to the
unit are set in their normal, non-alarm positions.
61
Sensaphone® Model 1108 User’s Manual
For example, if a magnetic reed switch (a normallyclosed sensor used to detect unauthorized entry) has
been wired to the Model 1108, make sure that the
door or window to be monitored is shut before configuring the input. If a motion-detector is wired to the
unit, it is advisable to block all sources of motion
from the sensor before and during configuration.
5.1.1 Programming Input Configuration
1. Press STANDBY to place the Model 1108 in Standby
mode.
2. Wire sensors to the inputs to the back of the Model 1108 (see
Chapter 2, Section 2.10).
3. Press RUN. The red light glows when the Model 1108 returns
to Run mode.
4. Press SET.
5. Press CONFIGURE.
6. The Model 1108 audibly recites the configuration for each of
the eight inputs:
• If the input is normally open, the Model 1108 recites the
number of the input and says “OK.”
• If the input is normally closed, the Model 1108 recites the
number of the input, followed by a “beep” and “OK.”
• If the input is configured as temperature, the Model 1108
recites the number of the input, followed by “Temperature.”
5.1.2 Verifying Input Configuration
Input configuration can be verified when interrogating the Model
1108 for a complete Status Report. Refer to Chapter 6 for a more
detailed description of the Status Report.
62
Chapter 5: Alarm Programming
5.2 Enable/Disable Inputs
This function allows you to enable or disable an input’s response
to an alert condition. An enabled input will respond to an alert
condition and allow dial-out. A disabled input will cause dial-out
to be suppressed, but any existing alert conditions will be revealed
during the Status Report. Enable/disable programming is useful
during wiring of inputs (see Chapter 2) or when a condition needs
to be monitored, but is not critical enough to be programmed for
dial-out reporting. It is important to verify input status after
performing any task that requires disabling. The default setting for
all inputs is enabled (ON).
If an alert condition exists when inputs are re-enabled,
Recognition Time will restart—refer to Section 5.3.
5.2.1 Changing Enabled/Disabled Input Status
1. Press SENSOR ON/OFF.
2. Press the number (1 to 8) of the selected input to
enable/disable. The Model 1108 says “Off” to indicate disabled or
“On” to indicate enabled.
5.2.2 Verifying Enabled/Disabled Input Status
1. Press WHAT IS.
2. Press STATUS.
The Model 1108 audibly recites the current status of every input.
In a Status Report, each input is first identified by its input
number, followed by a report that specifies parameters currently
63

affecting that input. If an input is disabled, the word “Off”
immediately follows the number recited for that input.
For example, input 3 is configured as a normally open, dry
contact input. During the Status Report:
• If disabled, the Model 1108 recites:
“Number 3—Off—OK,” for input 3.
• If enabled, the Model 1108 recites:
“Number 3—OK,” for input 3.
In another example, input 2 is configured as a temperature input.
The current temperature is 76 degrees. During a Status Report:
• If disabled, the Model 1108 recites:
“Number 2—Off—76 degrees—OK.”
• If enabled, the Model 1108 recites:
“Number 2—76 degrees—OK.”
64
Chapter 5: Alarm Programming
5.3 Input Recognition Time

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

In addition to communication and alarm monitoring capabilities,
the Model 1108 will also respond to your instructions and provide
you with access to information on monitored conditions at all times.
By issuing commands to the unit, either at the installation site or
over standard telephone lines, the following features may be
activated:
• Acknowledgment of existing alarms
• The Status Report on all monitored conditions.
6.1 Alarm Acknowledgment
When the Model 1108 dials out with an alarm message, it will
request acknowledgment before hanging up. Acknowledgment
indicates to the unit that the alarm message has been received.
Upon acknowledgment, the Model 1108 will cancel the dial-out
sequence.
There are three ways* that an alarm is acknowledged directly:
•
•
•
Local Acknowledgment
Touch-Tone Acknowledgment
Callback Acknowledgment
™
* A fourth method of alarm acknowledgment is indirect. Refer

To acknowledge an alarm locally (directly at the installation site
of the Model 1108), press any key.
6.1.2 Touch-Tone™ Acknowledgment
This method of remote alarm acknowledgment works with a
Touch-Tone telephone.
Example: You receive a call from the Model 1108, reporting that
an alarm exists. The message concludes: “Indicate you have
received warning message.” Now, or at any time during this call,
you may acknowledge the alarm with the code “555” if you are
using a Touch-Tone telephone.
79
Sensaphone® Model 1108 User’s Manual
• To enter “555,” press the number (5) key on the Touch-Tone
phone keypad three times. The Model 1108 will respond: *
“Warning message received by telephone number (last
number dialed).” The Model 1108 will hang up and the dialout sequence, including any further response to the alarm, will
be cancelled.
• If you enter the wrong code or do not enter it within 10
seconds following the conclusion of the message, the Model
1108 will respond: “Dial telephone number (the programmed
unit phone number) within (Intercall Time).” Then, the
Model 1108 will hang up. The alarm is still not acknowledged
until you call back. You have a period equal to the programmed
Intercall Time to call the unit back in order to acknowledge the
alarm. Refer to Callback Acknowledgment, Section 6.1.3,
below.
6.1.3 Callback Acknowledgment
This method of remote alarm acknowledgment works with any
telephone: pulse, rotary, or Touch-Tone.
Example: The Model 1108 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 1108 back on any telephone. You
must wait for 10 rings—this signals the Model 1108 to
answer your telephone call. (Make sure to call back within
the programmed setting for Intercall Time—refer to Chapter
4, Section 4.11.)
When the Model 1108 answers your return call, it gives a Status
Report (refer to Section 6.2). Then it says: “Warning message
received by ...” and recites the telephone number last dialed. This
indicates that the alarm has been acknowledged.
NOTE
If you have the TAD feature ( telephone answering
device) enabled, the Model 1108 will answer the telephone on the first ring. If it is disabled, the telephone
must be allowed to ring 10 times. This serves as a
precaution against a random alarm acknowledgment.
Refer to Chapter 4, Section 4.6, for complete information on using the TAD feature.

Chapter 6: Acknowledgment, Status Report & Remote Access
6.2 Status Report
The Status Report allows access to complete information on all
monitored conditions either locally, from the keypad, or by
telephone, from any location. The Model 1108 will answer an
incoming telephone call following the programmed Rings Until
Answer (refer to Chapter 4, Section 4.5). Included with the Status
Report are messages related to alarm conditions, AC power,
battery backup and sound level. It also provides an opportunity
for listening to on-site sounds (refer to Listen-in Time, Chapter 4,
Section 4.7).
To initiate the Status Report:
1. Press WHAT IS.
WHAT

*
2. Press STATUS.
STATUS
CONFIGURE
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 12:15PM (or the current time).”
The Model 1108 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, 4, and 6 are configured as dry contact and input 1, 5,
7, and 8 are configured as temperature. No alarms exist. The
Status Report begins by saying, “Hello, this is telephone number
555-1234; the time is 12:15PM.”
Following this introduction, the report continues:
“Number 1, 74 degrees, OK.”
“Number 2, OK.”
“Number 3, OK.”
“Number 4, OK.”
“Number 5, 76 degrees, OK.”
81
Sensaphone® Model 1108 User’s Manual
“Number 6, OK.”
“Number 7, 86 degrees, OK.”
“Number 8, 70 degrees 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 1108
concludes the call, saying: “Have a good day.” (The Status Report
will not repeat if obtained at the keypad; “Have a good day,” is
also not recited.)
The phrase “no number” at the end of a Status Report indicates
that no dial-out phone numbers have been programmed.
6.2.2 Example: Status Report, Existing Alarms
Inputs 2, 3, 4 and 6 are configured as dry contact and inputs 1, 5,
7 and 8 are configured as temperature. An emergency situation is
at hand: a fire in a greenhouse has tripped a smoke alarm and
electrical power has been disrupted. In addition to high sound and
AC power alarms, separate alarms exist on inputs 5, 6, 7, and 8.
You happen to call in for the Status Report, which begins with,
“Hello, this is telephone number 555-1234; the time is 12:15PM.”
Following this introduction, the report continues:
“Number 1, 74 degrees, OK.”
“Number 2, OK.”
“Number 3, OK.”
“Number 4, OK.”
“Number 5, 105 degrees, HIGH.”
“Number 6, EXISTS.”
“Number 7, 110 degrees, HIGH.”
“Number 8, 98 degrees, HIGH.”
“The electricity is OFF.”
82
Chapter 6: Acknowledgment, Status Report & Remote Access
“Battery condition, OK.”
“Sound level, HIGH.”
“Warning message received by ...(last telephone number
dialed*).”
“Listen to the sound level for 10 seconds.”
The Status Report repeats once more and the Model 1108
concludes the call by saying: “Have a good day.”
* The “last telephone number dialed” refers to any
one of the programmed, dial-out telephone numbers
through which the Model 1108 was able to receive
alarm acknowledgment, prior to your call for a Status
Report; this could also refer to the Model 1108’s I.D.
Number (identification number), if the alarms are
acknowledged at the keypad by someone present at
the site.
6.2.3 Example: Status Report, Disabled Inputs
If an input is disabled, the dial-out feature for that input is
deactivated, but all other programmed parameters remain in effect.
In the example below, all 8 inputs are disabled, although inputs 5
and 6 are detecting alarms. AC power and Sound Level is also
disabled for dial-out. (Note that to indicate disabled status, only
AC power will return two audible “beeps,” rather than the word
“OFF.”) When you call the Model 1108 for a Status Report, you
hear the following:
“Hello, this is telephone number 555-1234.
“The time is 12:15PM.”
“Number 1, OFF, OK.”
“Number 2, OFF, 74 degrees, OK.”
“Number 3, OFF, OK.”
“Number 4, OFF, OK.”
“Number 5, OFF, 96 degrees, HIGH.”
“Number 6, OFF, EXISTS.”
“Number 7, OFF, 86 degrees, OK.”
“Number 8, OFF, 70 degrees, OK.”
“The electricity is (beep, beep) ON.” If the electricity is off, or the
AC adaptor is disconnected, you will hear: “The electricity is
83
Sensaphone® Model 1108 User’s Manual
(beep, beep) OFF.”
“Battery condition, OK.”
“Sound level OFF, OK.” If the sound level is high you will hear:
Sound level OFF, HIGH.”
“Listen to the sound level for 10 seconds.”
The Status Report repeats once more and the Model 1108
concludes the call, saying: “Have a good day.”
6.2.4 Battery Condition
During a Status Report, you may hear one of three possible
messages regarding battery power. The Model 1108 determines
the appropriate message by measuring battery voltage.
Depending upon the remaining voltage, it may respond:
• “Battery Condition OK,” if over 8.2 Volts.
• “Battery Condition low,” if between 7.2 and 8.2 Volts.
• “Replace batteries,” if below 7.2 Volts.
6.2.5 Remote Access by Touch-Tone™ Telephone
Calling the Model 1108 for a Status Report provides the
opportunity to access other functions, using Touch-Tone pushbutton commands. Remote telephone commands include:
• Disabling/enabling any input.
• Disabling/enabling High Sound Alarm monitoring.
• Disabling/enabling AC Power monitoring.
• Activation of Listen-In Time.
• Activation of the Status Report.
To issue commands by telephone, first dial the number of the
Model 1108 to access the Status Report. The Status Report will
be followed by the programmed Listen-In Time. If you remain on
the telephone, the Status Report will be repeated, followed by a 10
second waiting period and hang-up. During this 10 second waiting
period, or at any time during the call, other commands may by
accessed by pressing any push button on the telephone.
If a Security Code is in effect, the Model 1108 will prompt you
with: “Enter Security Code.” If no Security Code is set, then it
will say “O.K.”
84
Chapter 6: Acknowledgment, Status Report & Remote Access
• Enter your Security Code (4 digits) with the telephone push
buttons. If the code you enter is correct, the Model 1108 will
respond: “OK.”
• If you enter the wrong Security Code, the Model 1108 says,
“Error. Have a good day,” and hangs up.
Disabling/enabling inputs – If an input is set to detect an alert
condition, it can be disabled to prevent the Model 1108 from
dialing out, or re-enabled at any time.
This feature allows the convenience of disabling an input, even if
you are away from the site of the Model 1108. One such
application may involve an input programmed to detect
unauthorized entry. You are in another locale, but must allow
someone else temporary access to the area monitored by the
Model 1108. Using a Touch-Tone telephone, you can disable the
appropriate input (thereby disabling any alarm dial-out response).
The input remains disabled until you issue the same command,
which effectively returns it to its former, enabled state.
Press the following push-buttons on the Touch-Tone telephone to
execute the desired command:
* (asterisk), 1
...equal to Sensor On/Off, for input 1. To re-enable the input,
repeat the same Touch-Tone button sequence used for
disabling.
* (asterisk), 2
...equal to Sensor On/Off for input 2, and so on, for inputs up
to 8. To re-enable the input, repeat the same Touch-Tone™
button sequence used for disabling.
Disabling/enabling High Sound Monitoring –
* (asterisk), 9
...equal to SENSOR ON/OFF for High Sound Alarm
monitoring. To re-enable High Sound Alarm, repeat the
command.
Disabling/enabling AC Power –

Chapter 7: Operation
Chapter 7: Operation
After installation and programming is completed, the Model 1108
is fully operational. This chapter explains the sequence of events
that occur during an alarm dialout to illustrate how the Model
1108 operates.
7.1 Alarm Detection, Dial-out and Acknowledgment
Generally, an alarm event is structured in the following manner:
I. The Model 1108 detects an alert condition due to a change
at the sensor.
II. A valid alarm is recognized.
III. Dial-out begins.
IV. The alarm is acknowledged.
Often, an alarm does not proceed through all stages: either an
alert condition does not persist long enough to be considered
valid, or a valid alarm is cancelled.
The table on the following pages explains the alarm detection,
dial-out and acknowledgment features and lists important variable
factors affecting their operation.
87
Sensaphone® Model 1108 User’s Manual
I.Model 1108 Detects a Change at the Sensor
• Model 1108 detects a change in the
monitored condition (from the sensor
wired to one of the inputs). This is
considered an alert condition, and does
not qualify as a valid alarm at this point.
• The condition continues throughout the
programmed Recognition Time. If the
condition (or sensor) reverts to its normal
state before the Recognition Time is
reached, no alarm will occur.
II. A Valid Alarm Is Recognized
• The condition must persist long enough to
meet or exceed the programmed
Recognition Time. When Recognition
Time has expired, but the alert condition
continues, the Model 1108 will determine
that a valid alarm exists.
• When a valid alarm is determined, Call
Delay is activated, forcing the Model
1108 to wait for a programmed period of
time before starting the dial-out process.
Call Delay applies to the period just prior
to dial-out, before the first telephone call
is made.
• Call Delay provides the opportunity to
cancel a valid alarm at the Model 1108’s
installation site, before dial-out occurs.
An audible voice message indicates which
of the inputs is in alarm. If on-site
personnel acknowledge the alarm within
the Call Delay time, the Model 1108 will
not dial out. (Local Voice Mute is
disabled, so that alarm messages can be
heard at the site.)

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

IV. The Alarm Is Acknowledged
• At any time after a valid alarm is
determined, the alarm may be
acknowledged at the Model 1108’s
installation site, by pressing any key.
• When the Model 1108 dials out and the
call is answered via Touch-Tone
telephone, any alarm may be instantly
acknowledged by pressing “555.”
• If the alarm message repeats for the
number of programmed Voice
Repetitions, and “555” has not been
entered, the Model 1108 will say:
Variable Factors
Local, On-site
Acknowledgment
Touch-Tone
Acknowledgment:
Fast Code 555
“Indicate that you have received warning
message.”
The Model 1108 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
Warning message received by telephone
number...(the dialed phone number).”
The alarm is considered acknowledged
and the dialout concludes.
• If the Model 1108 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 1108 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.
• Callback: The Model 1108 waits 10 rings

continues the dialout sequence; it
waits the Intercall Time and proceeds
to dial the next telephone number.
Telephone numbers 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.

Appendix B: Weekly Testing Procedure
Appendix B: 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.

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.
