Power Sentry for Android

Developer's Description

Low cost Power monitoring application designed for simple setup and use on inexpensive Android phones

The Power Sentry is a low-cost app for use on inexpensive used android cell phones. It watches 24/7 for power outages and notifies you when they occur and again when they are resolved. It is designed to be easy to setup and use, simply install the app, set some settings for your environment, plug in the phone and turn on the monitoring function. If you have equipment that is important to keep running with constant electric power, this app will save you money, save time and give you piece of mind. If the situation is urgent or remote you can be notified and let the power company know, go to the location to solve the problem or rent a portable generator. Power monitoring devices can cost hundreds, but this app is less than $5 to purchase and a cheap used android phone purchase along with a phone plan of around $5 a month and you are all set. See our web site or email us for where to find the phones and plans. When Wayne Newton had his yacht sink at the lake dock because a power outage caused his sump-pump to stop running, Im sure he would have appreciated having The Power Sentry app watching out for him! It can do the same for you regardless of the value of what you are protecting from loss.
