Monitors your electricity in case of a power outage and sounds an alarm if the power is gone. Useful if you need to be notified of a power cut right away, like if you have a burglar alarm, freezer, heater, aquarium or if it's just very cold outside!
It's extremely simple:
1. Connect your iPhone/iPod directly to a wall outlet via your USB power adapter. Do not connect via a computer USB.
2. Start the app. Your are now monitoring your electricity.
3. Place the iPhone/iPod on a table with the screen facing down. The screen will automatically be turned off and the monitoring continues in the background until you quit the app. If the power is cut you will be alerted by an alarm and vibration (iPhone only)
iPhone only feature: If you lift the iPhone, the screen will be turned on and you can see what time it is on the built in clock. Great as bedside clock.
The app also works as a simple anti-theft alarm if someone disconnects your device while it's charging.

Electricity? Life saver!
Let me start by saying I had no idea this type of app existed and thought how useful it would be if they made one... Well they do.
The reason for wanting this app is that I have 5 multiple thousand dollar aquariums and an older house with some pretty weak electrical. If my circuit breaker trips in the middle of the night I could literally loose thousands of dollars! Not cool.
I simply plug my phone into the charger as i do everynight, but now I have the piece of mind knowing that as I'm sound asleep, my investments are protected.
I would highly recommend this cheap app that could potentially save you thousands!
Not working on iPhone 6+
So here is my review one star this app used to run in the background so you could have other apps running while it was plugged in and using the phone with another bedside clock of your choice, and if the power went out it would alert you now you need to have it running in the foreground with your phone facedown makes no sense to me. And ever since the new update for iPhone 6 the app has stopped working, plug in the phone and try to open the app it just shuts down and when you go to the App Store and click on the app support it takes you nowhere for help. Want more stars fix it, and let it run in the background like it use to.
Absolutely amazing app! We have a sump pump and in an area where we lose power quite often. This notified us as soon as power went out we had plenty of time to go outside get our generator get it hooked up get it turned on before any water started coming out of the sump pump! Definitely a lifesaver saved our basement from being flooded lots of cleanup and dealing with insurance companies! I would definitely recommend this app!
