Sensaphone FGD-400 Features
Recordable Voice: The FGD 400 and FGD 800 have the added benefit of giving the user the ability customize the voice messages for each of the input alarms and the identification message. The messages are recorded by the user through the built-in microphone. This is a great new feature being added to the 400 and 800 products. Now that the two new desktop products have real voice programming, every Sensaphone product now supports recordable voice.
Output: Both the Sensaphone 400 and Sensaphone 800 models now include a relay output that can be programmed to operate automatically upon alarm, or manually from a remote touch-tone phone. It can be used to trip a local alarm, or used like the Sensaphone CottageSitter to control a dual setback thermostat.
Line Seizure: Line seizure is now a standard feature on the new 400/800. Previously this was an extra feature that was an additional cost.
Phone Line Monitoring: There is a new phone circuit in the 400/800 that monitors the integrity of the phone line. If the phone line is cut or disconnected, an LED will flash and optionally the output relay can be tripped at the same time for a local indication of a problem.
Batteries: The Sensaphone 400 and 800 have a 24-hour battery backup capability just like the previous models 1104/1108, but with slightly smaller C cells instead of D cells. Also, the batteries are changed from the front of the unit, so if it is wall mounted, you do not have to remove it from the wall to change the batteries.
Phone Test: Each dial-out phone number can be tested from the keypad. When the test is being conducted, the speaker will play the sounds that are occurring on the real phone line. This makes is very easy to determine if the user needs to first dial a '9' or an '8' before the destination phone number, or other special dialling sequences.
LED's: Additional status LED's are provided on the front of the 400/800 to show battery condition, alarm status, and phone status
Power: The power adapter for the Sensaphone 400/800 is a standard plug-in adapter, which makes it easy to feed through openings and easy to remove.
