We all know the inconvenience of running out of power or experiencing power outages when you least expect it. Whether you run a business, you’re on vacation or you just want to prepare a home-made meal after a long day – we can all agree that the best way would be to get a warning before any possible power outages and such times need preparation and alternative plans.
South Africans will not be part of that struggle for too long, thanks to Netshield who recently launched the Simple GSM Power Monitor PH1- a power monitor that sends you convenient SMS-based power status reports. All you need to do is simply insert a SIM card to the unit, register the number where notifications should be sent, plug it in to a power plug and you’re set to go.
“If you’re away on holiday, I’m sure you don’t want to worry about returning to a fridge or freezer full of off food, and if you are a business owner, for example, a shop owner with large freezers or a restaurant owner, knowing about a power trip could save you a lot of money. Farmers that pump water using electricity need to know that the process is running smoothly and hairdressers would greatly benefit from knowing about a power outage before it happens. This solution has many applications in businesses and consumer households,” explained Netshield South Africa CEO Inus Dreckmeyr.
The unit is easy to set up, includes a 3-pin plug, power detector and a GSM unit with a Micro SIM socket. It will only cost you R1499, which is quite reasonable considering that you will only need to buy it once.
