Surefire Stove Sentry
Keeps the Home Fires Burning!
Backup power for your Monitor 422 heater or pellet stove,  The Surefire Power Backup will keep you 
warm during power failures!

The Surefire Stove Sentry is a back up power system utilizing RV batteries and an inverter to run kerosene and pellet stoves in the event of a power failure. The system automatically takes over when the power goes out, and recharges itself as soon as power is restored. Surefire is not currently available for the Monitor 2200 or 2400, as they requires a true sine wave to operate.

Surefire Stove Sentry backup 
power system

The Surefire Stove Sentry is designed to backup or replace utility power. When it it used with a common 90 Amp hour RV battery, it's highly efficient circuitry provides approximately 8 hours of operation from a pellet stove or 4 hours from a kerosene heater in the absence of electricity.

When electricity is present the Surefire Stove Sentry charges a battery or bank of batteries and monitors electricity levels to your stove or heater. At the instant that a power failure occurs, the Surefire Stove Sentry converts the energy stored in the battery to AC power, assurring operation of the pellet stove or kerosene heater without interruption during the absence of electricity. Additional batteries can be added to the system to increase the available power backup available.

When commercial power is restored, the Surefire Stove Sentry reinstates commercial power as the primary electrical source to operate the pellet stove or kerosene heater. The Surefire Stove Sentry automatically commences recharging the battery, to return it to full capacity for the next power failure.
