The LintAlert® is a smart home safety device that monitors and displays the back pressure levels found in the exhaust conduit of the dryer. Pressure levels found in the dryer duct typically increase over time due to lint build-up, animal nests or vent hoods that become inoperable.
The LintAlert® features an innovative and responsive digital pressure sensor. Coupled with a programmable integrated circuit, the device can determine if your dryer is ON, and what levels of pressure exist. When the pressure reaches an unsafe level, the alarm state will activate, indicating maintenance is required. The alarm state is displayed as: LED light bar flashes on and off alternating with blue logo, with buzzer beeping. Prior to the alarm state, a slow progression of the LED Blockage Indicator will display fractional build-up.
Disguised as a simple night light and pass through plug, the LintAlert exhibits a steady blue light under normal operation.
The included tap fitting is installed in the dryers’ transition hose at or near the dryers exhaust port. The SmartTap™ fitting is connected to the alarm module by a 1/8″ tube and allows the pressure differential switch to monitor the pressure in the flex transition hose and the balance of the exhaust conduit.
Because electrical outlets are generally at a minimum in the laundry room, a convenient pass through terminal is provided and is sufficient to carry a maximum of 15 amps.
