213. IdeaSpark*: Phone-calling Alarm March 12, 2007Posted by Matt Fleming, PsyD in IdeaSpark*, Product, Service.
This weekend, as my wife and I were going through the inspection of our (hopefully) new home, we were told that the water heater could break at any moment, causing a small flood. We could get an alarm to detect the flooding water, but that will only help if we are around to hear it go off.
IdeaSpark*: an alarm that calls your cell phone when it goes off. This would be especially helpful when you are on vacation. So when you get a call indicating your house is flooding, on fire, or being burgled, you can call your neighbor or emergency personnel to check it out.
Also: Install this product in your car, so when your car alarm is activated, it alerts You (in addition to annoying everyone within earshot of your car).
