SAFEGUARD YOUR HOME/BUSINESS WITH HONEYWELL'S WINTER WATCHMAN!
I recently discovered a great device, manufactured by Honeywell which is guaranteed to provide you with peace of mind whenever you are away from your home or business for more than a few hours. The Honeywell Winter Watchman UPC#: 085267870511, is a freeze warning alarm. Winter Watchman turns on a light alerting neighbors of a cold, low temperature condition. The model number is S483B1002 and the cost is in the $25.00 - $30.00 range.
This device plugs into a home outlet and then you plug a lamp into it. Make sure the lamp is on before you plug it into the Winter watchman. I use a lamp with a red globe and place it in the front window. Then I notify all of the helpful neighbors of my warning system so that can call me,or my designee, if they see the red light on. One of the features of the Winter Watchman is the fact that you can set the warning temperature, ten degrees below the setting on the thermostat would be a good setting in that the warning light would activate but your home wouldn't be in danger of an immediate freeze of the water pipes. OTHER modifications you might consider would be:
1. plug a spot light with a red bulb and a flasher unit into the Winter Watchman to get everyone's attention.
2. Use more that one Winter Watchman, perhaps on the other side of the house so that multiple neighbors can be alerted.
