The Winland EA200 is an EnviroAlert dual zone digital environmental alarm that can be integrated with a security system for environmental protection. The EA200 requires power from an alarm control panel or it can be plugged into an outlet using a power supply (not included). Once powered, it can monitor temperature, humidity or water. The EnviroAlert EA200 has a 12VDC and 24VDC version. If you choose the 12VDC version, you will receive an EA200-12. If you choose the 24VDC version, you will receive an EA200-24. The EA200-12 is compatible with four different temperature probes, a humidity probe and two different water probes. The EA200-24 is compatible with all of the same probes except for the humidity probe.
The actual EA200 EnviroAlert digital environmental alarm is a dual zone device. It can monitor the ambient temperature of a room without any external probe and it can also be attached to a remote probe for temperature, humidity or water detection. The on-board temperature sensor uses the first zone and has a temperature range of 32 to 122° F. You can program a high and low temperature limit. Zone two can also be programmed to detect for low and high temperatures, certain humidity levels or the presence of water using an external probe. When using a remote temperature probe, the temperature range is -58 to 299° F depending on which probe you use. The humidity probe can detect 5 to 95% relative humidity. The water sensors are used to protect against flood conditions.
If you are using the Winland EA200 as a standalone environmental alarm, it can be connected to an audible alarm module so that a buzzer will sound whenever an environmental alarm is detected. You can also integrate the EA200 with an alarm control panel so that the alarm siren goes off when an environmental alarm is detected. As it can be integrated with a security system, you can use the EA200 with an alarm monitoring plan for remote monitoring purposes. If you use the EA200 EnviroAlert with the Self Monitoring plan, you can setup your Total Connect account so that you get an email and/or text message every time an environmental emergency occurs. You can also use the EA200 with a Basic Monitoring or Monitoring Plus plan so that our UL-listed central station can call your or your call list when an environmental alarm signal is received. Here at Alarm Grid, we don’t charge extra for monitoring environmental sensors so the Winland EA200 EnviroAlert is a good way to get added value out of your monitored security system.
When using the Winland EA200 with a Honeywell security system that has a wireless receiver, you can wire the EA200 to a 5816 wireless transmitter so that it acts as a wireless environmental sensor. You will need to wire the internal contact loop of the 5816 to the zone 1 or zone 2 output on the EA200. The EA200 would detect an environmental alarm using the integrated temperature sensor or a remote probe and that alarm would be transmitted back to your wireless Honeywell security system by the 5816 wireless transmitter. If you wanted to use both zones of the Winland EA200 EnviroAlert, you would have to use two 5816 wireless transmitters. One 5816 would be used for the integrated temperature sensor and the other 5816 would be used for whichever remote probe you connect to the EA200.
