Freeze Alarm Monitoring FAQs
What is a freeze alarm?
A freeze alarm provides early warning when the temperature in your home or business is approaching a dangerously low level during the winter. When the temperature reaches a pre-set point, an alarm is triggered. This alarm generates an audible alert in the home or business, and also sends an alarm to the monitoring centre. The early warning allows you to address any issues and helps limit damages caused by freezing temperatures, such as plumbing issues.
What is the best freeze alarm?
Some freeze alarms come with a fixed temperature setting, while others are adjustable. With a fixed option, it is important to know what temperature will cause your low temperature sensor to trigger an alarm. The higher the fixed set point, the more time you will have to respond when a risk of freezing is detected. With an adjustable option, the trigger point will be programmed by your technician when the low temperature sensor is installed.
