Prompt notification of a power outage helps to avoid costly damage caused by power outages. Without commitment to a monthly fee customers get a cell phone alert that gives them time to take 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 the 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.
