iSocket for power outages monitoring in the United States and Canada

 This is the greatest device anyone can have for keeping a remote eye on a out of town property that requires constant hydro supply for a sump pump, water detection in the event there’s a failure of the sump pump or even possible furnace failure. Extremely happy with this product.

A small cost for the peace of mind and comfort that iSocket gives you.

Remember, the cost of the damage from a power outage can be considerably more than the cost of a solution that will send you power outage notifications. And remember, power failure alerting is not the only feature iSocket offers you.

No power - no football. An equipment failure at the High Street substation caused a 34.5 kilovolt circuit breaker to open, which in turn de-energized a substation transformer resulting in the loss of power to two of the electric company's 13.2 kilovolt distribution circuits. Butler, Kinnelon, Bloomingdale, and small portions of West Milford and Riverdale were without electricity.
