Fantastic Device
I was looking for a device to alarm me in case of a loss of electricity or dramatic spike in temperature in my wine cellar. This device fits the bill! The wireless device works through many walls and 50 feet away flawlessly. It texts me if certain triggers occur like a rise in temp over 60 degrees or a spike or fall in humidity.
