security and saving made simple.
Protecting a cottage, cabin, shack, or any property that will be unattended for a length of time is important on many levels. Insurance companies are now stickier than ever when it comes to insurance claims based on water damage. Most companies now require a 48 hour check up on the property when the owners are away from the premise for a length of time. The Sensaphone cottage sitter will be one way to alleviate the insurance company’s persistence on checking the premise every 48 hours. For $150-$450, a DIY (Do It Yourself) tool such as a Sensaphone or Freeze Alarm will get you out of a potential big bill for the person checking every 48 hours, as well as an alert to the user’s cell phone or email at the time an alarm condition is met. The protection Sensaphone  offers will give the user peace of mind knowing they are covered in the event of a possible pipe break or freezing. The system contacts anyone linked to the device through telephone number, text, email, etc. The Sensaphone 400 Cottage Sitter itself has 4 phone numbers it can dial to at any one time. If the devices get upgrade to the Sensaphone 800, then 8 phone numbers are able to be called in the event of a problem. In the world of smart technology, these devices are a stop forward in the right directing. The user is able to not only get an alert from the Sensaphone at the time of a leak, but also allows the user to control the thermostat with their phone. That enables anyone to program or “set” the thermostat to be on a few hours before they get home. Cooling or warming the place will be done well in advanced if programmed properly from the persons phone.
