iSocket arrives to notify Kiwi businesses of power outages via text
iSocket Systems have recently introduced iSocket for power outage monitoring to the New Zealand market after launching the product in Australia.
Prompt notification of a power outage helps to avoid the costly damage they can cause. Without committing themselves to a monthly fee, customers get a cell phone alert that gives them time to take corrective action.
iSocket is a plug-in device that uses the New Zealand mobile networks and notifies the user immediately about power outages, however remote the location might be, allowing people to take appropriate action.
The product is fully certified for use in New Zealand. Farmers, frozen food suppliers, data centres, boat owners, the fishing industry, greenhouse owners, weather stations and everyday homes and offices can benefit from a prompt power outage alert, which gives more time to take corrective action.
“Farmers could restore power to incubators or cattle feeders before permanent damage occurs, boat owners can react quickly when they lose shore power, greenhouse owners can restore power to their irrigation systems,” the Finnish company says in a statement.
iSocket can send power failure alerts by text message to up to 10 pre-programmed numbers. The device is compatible with Vodafone, Spark and 2degrees mobile networks, covering almost all New Zealand territories.
It is operated by a SIM card from any operator, including mobile virtual network operators and suitable tariffs can be chosen from a wide range that are on offer, either on a contract or prepaid SIM cards.
