Temperature and Flood Sensor
Forest Security’s Wireless Temperature and Flood Detector can be used in a variety of applications that help protect against harmful temperature fluctuations and flood conditions. Water and flood damage are the number one leading cause of home insurance claims so be sure to keep yours protected.
Forest Security’s Temperature and Flood Sensor can be programmed with up to four zones and serves as a temperature sensor, flood detector or both simultaneously. It has an internal temperature sensor that can detect cold, hot or warm temperature ranges. When combined with the Temperature Sensor Probe, it can monitor refrigerated or freezing temperatures and alert you if there is a refrigeration problem.It can also be combined with a Water Sensor Probe to monitor flood conditions and alert you if water is detected.
Forest Two-Way Transmitters
Two Way transmitters offer greater security by operating in the 905-924 MHz spectrum band offer numerous advantages over other products:
- Longer range due to less strict regulatory requirements for the 905-924 MHz frequency band in comparison with the 300-433 MHz band
- Support for more frequent sensor check-ins, increasing system reliability
- Spread-spectrum technology for greater reliability and protection from jamming
- Two-way communications for greater reliability
- Greater range with support for up to eight repeaters⋅ Shorter wavelengths are less likely to be blocked by new walls or other changes made to a protected area⋅UL approved for commercial fire installations
- Longer battery life for lower maintenance costs
900 MHZ SPREAD-SPECTRUM TECHNOLOGY
Forest’s wireless communication employs 900 MHz frequency-hopping spread-spectrum to ensure clear and accurate signal transmissions without interference in practically any environment. The spread- spectrum technology enables the system to use numerous channels within the 905-925 MHz band and to dynamically hop from frequency to frequency.
By using spread-spectrum technology, this virtually ensures that our wireless system cannot be defeated by jamming. With non-spread-spectrum systems that operate in a narrow frequency band, an intruder can use a wireless device to flood the area with transmissions at the same frequency used by the alarm system, thereby preventing alarm signals from reaching the receiver.
Every 32 milliseconds, Forest’s Two-Way Wireless hops to a new frequency across 53 frequencies. The order is random and determined by the house code of the panel.Although spread-spectrum technology uses frequencies that other systems use, and it will see interference from other systems, it is designed to overcome that interference inherently.
This is one of the main advantages of spread-spectrum wireless.If the device and receiver hop to a different channel and encounter a channel that has interference, it simply moves on, and the data acknowledgment will not be received, thus requiring the panel or sensor to resend that signal. This trying and re-sending will automatically occur until the message is sent and acknowledged. This self-healing system is very reliable.
