iSocket for power outages monitoring in the United States and Canada

 This is a great product. It has saved us lots of headaches during natural disasters such as the most recent hurricanes in Louisiana. We have this in over four states and 30 offices that we support. The product works great and as advertised. We know when the power goes out, and therefore we can take remediating action much faster than waiting on the next time staff is in office. We look forward to engaging more of our management team in receiving these alerts and streamline communication about outages in our organization.
