Yes it does. After the alarm has been acknowledged, that same alarm will not trigger another dial out. However if the alarm condition is removed (I.e. water drained away, or the temperature rises back above the alarm point) than it the dialer will alarm again if an alarm condition occurs again.
The Uncle Albert can use an unlimited number of wireless sensors.
The placement of the sensors is really at the customers discretion. In a perfect world there would be a sensor everywhere water could be leaking but that may not be practical. The actual sensors should be placed slightly off the floor in most situations so that a damp floor or condensation does not cause a [...]
The water sensors can become sensitive to false alarming with dust, condensation etc. building up on the sensors over time. A very simple and effective method some customers have used to eliminate this problem is to simple cut the sensor off use the two bare wires alone as the sensor “prongs”. If water touches across [...]
No there is not.
Remember that this system was designed to be very sensitive, so the smallest amount of moisture will trip the alarm. Most problems experienced with this system are battery related. The battery used should measure 12 Volts using a simple volt meter. It is helpful sometimes to clean the ends of a new battery with rubbing [...]
