I am a little app that reports any power outage or failure. Live, with alarm, Telegram messages and emails.
I can send you a notification 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 natural habitat! The oldest device I can live in is one with iOS 10.3.4, like an iPhone 5. Just leave the device charging, set up your settings & press the blue thunder.
I will handle the rest. 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 play or 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" and see for yourself. Will also send you Telegram & email notifications, just set them up correctly first.
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 ::
• Find a device no longer in use (see list below for minimum)
• Find a working charging cable*
• Place it on your place with the delicate equipment (fridges, incubator, dehumidifier, etc)
• Connect it to WiFi and 3/4G
• Adjust the Detection Sensitivity if I want to avoid micro failures (less than 3 seconds)
• Enable & Setup Telegram
• Enter your email
• Turn off sound alarm
• Start monitoring power failures
• In case of power failure it will send you a Telegram message or email
• You can then take action as planned for power failures.
DEVICES SUPPORTED ::
• Any iOS device with iOS 10.3 or Newer
• iPhone 5 (updated to last iOS) (2012) or Newer
• iPod Touch 6th Generation (2015) & Newer
• iPad 4th Generation (2014) & Newer
• iPad Mini 2 (2014) & Newer
Check FAQ at App Support Webpage (Information Below)
* be aware that the device is in good working condition (ideally hold power & home buttons until you see Apple logo before operation)

Unfortunately does not work with iOS 9.3.6 😬
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!
Developer Response ,
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!
