    alarm notifier

    I would like to be notified on off hours if one of my boilers or AC units shut down. What do I need for this? No real DDC in building mostly timers. No guards or night or evening workers.

    I can vouch for Sensaphone. We had one at my last gig that monitored a blood freezer. If the temp went up or the power went off (the Sensaphone can still dial on battery power through an analog phone line) it would start calling the blood lab staff one by one until somebody answered.
    • Electricity makes refrigeration happen.
    • Refrigeration makes the HVAC psychrometric process happen.
    • HVAC pyschrometrics is what makes indoor human comfort happen...IF the ducts AND the building envelope cooperate.


    A building is NOT beautiful unless it is also comfortable.

    yupper them plasma coolers store many millions of dollars worth

    of blood (high antibody blood), temp needs to be -20 celsius

    you must also have plenty of redundant systems for when you have

    break downs, i got called out at christmas on 1 of those

    damn hp80 systems, had to fix a leak at the evaporator, the forklift can only

    stay in for 20 minutes at a time or it will freeze the hydralics, it is amazing

    the way things react in the cold environment.

    Telephone line... give me some time.

    If your building has a data room with a monitor (such as Liebert Universal Monitor) there may be a spare set of contacts you can use as well.
