VARKAUS, Finland, January 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --Prompt notification of a power outage helps to avoid costly damage caused by power outages. With no need to commit to a monthly fee, iSocket customers can receive a cell phone alert that gives them time to take immediate corrective action.
iSocket Systems have introduced iSocket® for power outage monitoring to the Australian market. This plug-in device uses the Australian mobile networks and notifies the user immediately when power fails in a remote location. This allows people to take the appropriate action. The manufacturer does not charge for this service and claims that the cost of using iSocket can be as little as 9 cents a month. The product is fully certified for use in Australia and is unique on the market.
Australia's extreme weather regularly results in power outages. Farmers, boat owners, the fishing industry, frozen food suppliers, greenhouse owners, weather stations, data centres and everyday homes and offices stand to lose everything. Prompt reaction could reduce the collateral damage. With an immediate power outage alert, more time is given to take corrective action.
When asked why this is new for Australia, the PR contact for the company, Doug Lumley, said:
"For Australia this is a new product, because only we offer a plug-in product tailored for power outage monitoring with the Australian standard plug. This is not a case of DIY, it's a ready-to-go product - no wiring, no complicated configuration. Just plug it into a power point and send the message "ALERTME" to the device, and it's ready for action."
Regarding the technology, a FAE of a company, Tommi Haukka, says:
"This is not an audible alarm. Because it uses the mobile network, it's international - whether you're on a business trip or on the beach, you'll get the SMS and you can take action. We use a top quality li-ion battery that is sufficient to power a mobile module and send a power outage alert to several numbers, even after a break in the mobile network."
The product is available direct from local Australian stock via a new website https://www.isocket.com.au/ for a list price of AU $189, with a 30-day money back guarantee and 2 years' full warranty. The product will also be available from local dealers.
