Temperature Alarm

In August 2013, El Paso, Texas, a malfunctioning air-conditioner caused the deaths of 10 dogs that were being transported to West Texas. The handlers made the distressing discovery when not much could have been done to save the animals. It is not hard to imagine that had they known that the air conditioner wasn’t working properly, the dogs could’ve been saved.

It goes without saying that knowing drastic changes in the temperature can come in handy; can even save lives. Whether it is appliances or storage spaces that require a certain temperature to be maintained, a temperature alarm is a piece of equipment that can be of great help.

Types of Temperature Alarms

High and low temperature alarms are the two types available. These are simple to use gadgets and give you heads up in case of a change in temperature.

Why Install Temperature Alarms

Let’s look at the possible situations requiring installation of a temperature alarm:

  • As a result of a possible air conditioning failure, your home may suffer mold or mildew damage due to high humidity levels.
  • Protect elderly relatives or infants during an air conditioning failure
  • Prevent food spoilage in the fridge, in the event of a malfunction

Report published by the Minnesota Department of Health and the Minnesota Department of Agriculture, states that certain food items must be stored at specific temperature, or their consumption can cause health hazards. These food items include:

  • Meat and meat products
  • Seafood and seafood products
  • Tofu products
  • Sauces and gravies
  • Dairy Products
  • Cooked rice, grains and cereals
  • Cream or meat filled pastries
  • Pies

Foods need to be stored at 41 degrees Fahrenheit for cold products and 140 degrees Fahrenheit for hot products. If these food items are not stored accordingly, they will go bad. A temperature alarm can alert you from consuming such foods.

You May Do the Following with a Temperature Alarm

  • Monitor the temperature of a home or shelter
  • Keep a check on temperatures in greenhouses or other businesses where temperature deviation can cause damage to plants and materials such as paper, cardboard storages
  • Monitor temperatures in computer rooms and wine cellars

How It Works

Digital temperature sensors, that may come equipped with humidity sensors, are placed where you want to measure and monitor temperature. Humidity and temperature is detected by a small device called the microprocessor. This device sends information to a receiver or central thermostat in the home’s central security control panel. The homeowner has access to this data through a remote thermostat, by phone or the internet and through the central control panel of the house. The alarm goes off when the temperature or humidity goes out of a programmed range. This system can be connected to the main home security network. By doing this, the monitoring service keeps a check on the home’s temperature and could notify the homeowner in case of an emergency.

What Temperature Alarm System Do You Need to Buy?

Conventional wisdom expects that you buy a temperature alarm system, which best fits your needs. However, if you already have a home security system in place, you will need to look for options that are compatible with a temperature alarm.

The following may serve as a guideline for you to buy and install a temperature alarm at home or for your workplace:

  • Do you prefer phone or internet notifications on an alarm system?
  • Do you want the option of programming the temperature according to your needs?
  • Do you need an alarm system, which allows you to control the thermostat using a remote control?
  • Do you want round-the-clock monitoring?

Answer to these questions will help you identify the exact temperature alarm system you need. Instead of going out to buy the “best” system in the market, be sure to understand your needs and buy the alarm accordingly.



Q:On what temperature, this temperature alarm system works?

A:Temperature alarm systems are used in businesses such as cold storage, as well as homes. They can have a single sensor or multiple sensors to monitor temperatures in many different areas. There is no single temperature that is needed for the alarm system to work. The right temperature depends on the preferred settings of the user.
