Question about remote temperature monitors that work with cell phones.

Q:"What remote monitors does Safe Home Products sell that have bettery back-ups and do not require a land line. I have a Blue Tooth type cell phone I want to use. I need to monitor the temperature of my Florida home while I am up North. Thanks. Will."

Answer: There are two lower priced Sensaphone remote monitors that use 6 C cells (not included) as power back-up. The Sensaphone Desk Top Monitor FGD400 includes an internal programmable temperature monitor. For that you would need to purchase the Sensaphone FGD-0230 Bluetooth Interface for Cell Phone . That interface also works with the Sensaphone Desktop Monitoring System 800, 8 External Outputs for Sensors which also uses 6 C cells (not included) as power back-up. You can add additional sensors for moisture, humidity, intrusion, etc.

Currently these Sensaphone Models can use cell phones with the Bluetooth interface FGD-0230:
