The 2GIG FT6e-345 is a wireless flood and temperature detector for 2GIG GC2e and 2GIG GC3e Systems. The sensor is notable for it being operated without the use of a leak detection probe. This makes it super easy for DIY users to set up. It offers both high and low temperature detection.
As both a flood and temperature detector, the 2GIG FT6e-345 is extremely versatile. It uses Loop Numbers when programming, and it will require three (3) system zones for full operation. It is important to note that the 2GIG FT6e-345 uses different Loop Numbers than the original non-encrypted 2GIG FT6-345 Sensor. For the 2GIG FT6e-345, the Loop Numbers are Loop 1 for flood and water leak detection, Loop 2 for high temperature detection, and Loop 3 for freeze detection. If there is a function that you do not wish to us with the 2GIG FT6e-345, you can simply skip programming for that Loop Number.
What is somewhat unique about the 2GIG FT6e-345 is that it does not use a detached probe for flood detection. Instead, it has built-in metal contacts on its top and bottom sides that are placed where leaks are likely be detected. The sensor is simply placed in an area where a leak is likely to occur and programmed with the system. Popular locations for flood sensors like the 2GIG FT6e-345 include behind toilets, underneath hot water tanks, under refrigerators, below sinks, and in basements where a sump pump may fail.
Other aspects about the 2GIG FT6e-345 that make it such an effective sensor include its water-tight housing and its sloping contacts that allow for faster leak detection. No screws or other tools are needed to install, making it perfect for DIY users. It just need to be placed in the desired area and programmed with the system. And as an encrypted 2GIG eSeries Sensor, the device is virtually impossible for others to hack or takeover wirelessly. This makes it an incredibly secure and dependable environmental sensor.
The 2GIG FT6e-345 activates its high temperature sensor upon detecting a temperature of 95°F or higher for three (3) minutes. Its freeze sensor activates at temperatures of 41°F or lower for three (3) minutes. The sensor has a range of roughly 350 nominal feet. It measures in at 2.4" diameter and 1.3" thick. It uses a single CR123A battery for power, and it has an average battery life of five (5) years. The sensor comes with double-sided adhesive foam tape for easy mounting. The sensor is for indoor use only.
