What is a Warmup Watchdog and how is it used?

Warmup’s Watchdog is simply a continuity tester. When installed correctly to a heating cable and turned on, the Watchdog will continually look for a path for electricity to travel. If there is no path for electricity to travel, the Watchdog will sound an alarm indicating there is a break in the circuit.

The Watchdog installation is simple. Simply:

1. Connect the black wire on the heating cable to the black terminal on the Watchdog

2. Connect the other heating element (e.g., yellow or red wire on the heating cable) to the blue terminal on the Watchdog

3. Connect the ground wire to the green terminal on the Watchdog

4. Turn the unit on and keep it on during the installation process.
