Exactly what I needed Recently I suffered a power outage at home during a vacation. Back at home I had to throw away all the fridge content. So I found this brilliant app. It send me an sms when a power outage occurs and another one if the power comes back. I can set delays (to avoid getting an sms if the power outage lasts only a few seconds). And I can get periodic sms to alert me to recharge my phone credit. This last feature was fixed and improved very quickly after contacting customer support so this app deserves 5 stars without doubts.
Does the job Simple, no nonsense tool. Even better would be an option to send email via wifi so you can, like me, use an old phone no longer connected to the network as an audible alarm AND still have a remote warning. Wifi when there's an outage??? Well if you're installing this you may well have taken the precaution of also installing a UPS or be able to grab a public wifi hotspot. Hey presto, an alarm that doesn't need a SIM.
Works fine - Support brilliant Went for this app just in case we had a power failure and we were away for a few days. I had a problem installing this product. Nothing to do with the app, down to my android mobile. Just hung trying to install. Turned out to be the same with other apps. So did a factory reset of my mobile & downloaded the app fine. This happened on a Saturday evening. I reported the fault to SJB and had a response within an hour! So app brilliant & support even better.
Reliable power cut warning The recent update to have an audible alarm has turned an already good app into a great app. Now it can wake me up when I'm home as well as texting me when I'm away. This is a great use of my old android phone and well worth 99p. I even tested it when there was no phone signal and it sent a message when it got a signal back. It seems very reliable which is what you really need for an app like this to give you peace of mind.
Fantastic app - really easy to use I've just returned a power outage device which cost £130 - does the same thing excellent app
