The detectors can be used simultaneously as a smoke/heat detector and freeze sensor - which alerts users if surrounding area temperature drops below a certain point. They feature a 10-year sealed battery and continually monitored operational status, providing a visual notification of network or unit failure. The units are compatible with the Interlogix Simon, NetworX, Concord and UltraSync alarm panels.
