[Android] Detect Power Outages

Hi everyone =D

 

I'm posting here a little application that I made because of my Reef Aquarium and I thought that I could share that application with everyone.

So for our aquariums be perfect ok we need electricity. The problem is that everyone have power outages, so we must know when we have a power outage at home to be able to go there and fix for a solution.

 

There are systems that do that for huge amount of money, but people can't afford to pay those systems.

So I made this application that warn's you when a power outage occurred. And that can make the difference between life and dead of the Reef aquarium.

The application it's free. (there is also a HD version :))

 

You only need internet connection at home and an Android phone.

For example if you have internet at home you will be notified when that internet connection is lost, and if that happens that means that you have no electricity or you have no internet connection, In any case is a useful information!

You don’t need any computer connected to the internet for the connection be established, so you don’t spend energy.

Hi, usually it also works with wifi. Try to disconnect and connect again to your wifi network and see on the browser if you can access to: http://automation.whatismyip.com/n09230945.asp and see your IP there.

That situation also happened to me once but I never understood why, because in a regular situaction it should work.

Otherwise type your IP and click on "2: Test connection" via wifi and/or carrer data.

I have been using the application so far for 1 month and has been very helpful.

I just improved it and share it for everyone on Google Play because i didn't find nothing equal on there.

The idea is give the ability to the user to know something about what's happening at home.

Hi everyone, I made a new video (the old one was messy) simulating a power outage and showing how the application detect and alert when the connection to the IP Adress is lost.

 

 

I hope it is noticeable =)

 

Greetings.
