Description

I am a little app that reports any power outage or failure. Live, with alarm and email.

I can send you an email with useful details so to know what is happening, but first you need to make sure that an internet connection is live.

I live in iOS, meaning iPhones, iPads & iPods are my favourites! The oldest device I can live in is one with iOS 9.3.5, like an iPhone 4S. Just leave the device charging, set up your settings & press the blue thunder.

The rest, leave them to me. Happy to help!


IT’S FOR THE ONE WHO ::
• Has delicate electrical equipment that power failures might destroy them
• Has his/her equipment destroyed from power failures (e.g. fridges)
• Needs to be notified when power has failed
• Needs to know the duration of power failures
• Thinks safety is above all

WHY IS USEFUL ::
• Will wake you up when sleeping
• Will send you an email when power has failed
• Will send you an email when power has been restored
• Handy in areas with tornados or earthquakes (usually power fails before the tornado).

HOW IT WORKS?
Just insert the charging cable and press the thunder (electrical power symbol). The moment the power fails it gives you an audible & visual alarm. You will definitely be awake even if your sleep is deep. Press "TEST" it and see for yourself. Will also send you email notifications

And when the power is off, the flashlight is there in the same screen for your convenience, in order to navigate in the dark.

IDEAL OPERATION SCENARIO ::
• Found a device no longer in use
• Found a working charging cable
• Place it on my lab with the delicate equipment (fridges, incubator, dehumidifier, etc)
• Connect it to WiFi or 3/4G
• Enter my email
• Adjust the Detection Sensitivity if I want to avoid micro failures (less than 3 seconds)
• Turn off sound alarm
• Start monitoring power failures
• In case of power failure it will send me an email and take action

*be aware that the device is in good working condition (ideally hold power & home buttons until you see apple logo before operation)

Super simple but has one downfall

This app works great and with just a few selections you can customize the alarm and power duration that triggers it. The only reason it’s not 5 stars is that it only sends a notification on the Lock Screen when your phone is locked or charging and not right in your hand.
I wanted to use this while sleeping so I could be alerted to a power outage while my new chicks are under a heat lamp, but unless I wake up to the notification noise (unlikely) the alarm won’t work for me as the actual alarm won’t go off if the phone screen isn’t open.
I did fool around with my phone security/Lock Screen and notification settings to try to get it to work and wasn’t able to get the alarm to go off after the phone isn’t being actively used.

Developer Response ,

Thank you very much for the comments and your rating. Currently there is not a workaround on your issue as Apple does not allow battery monitoring when the device is locked. If in the future a workaround is found then I will add it.

Hope BlackOut is at great help for your business!

Saves our coffee truck from freezing

The app is working perfectly for our coffee truck. It alerts us if we have a power failure while our coffee truck is in storage. We can respond before the water lines freeze and before the temp in the fridge gets in the danger zone. I can now sleep at night when the temp drops below freezing. Thanks!

Excellent to hear that you saved your truck and that Black Out helped you out!

Just what I needed

With baby chicks under heat lights, a delay getting them warm after a power failure could be deadly. I needed something simple. I just need to know when the power goes out. Nothing more. In this remote setting, any time the weather changes, the power can go out. This app allowed me to sleep, knowing my chicks were warm and safe. Thanks!
