Has your GFCI outlet tripped and you didn't know it and your food spoiled in the refrigerator or freezer? What if you heard an alarm to warn you? Easy fix.
GFCI protection is vital to ensure electrical safety in both residential and commercial settings. A power interruption due to a ground fault provides important protection to people but can shut down freezers, sump pumps and other necessary equipment if left undetected. Often, however, GFCIs in garages, basements or large commercial kitchens may be located in an out-of-the-way place such as a back corner or storage area making daily visual checks for tripping unlikely. The new SmartlockPro Slim GFCI with Audible Alert is the smart solution.
When a condition exists causing the SmartlockPro Slim GFCI with Audible Alert to trip, users will be alerted by the sounding of an audible alarm. This audible alert indicates that power has been disconnected from loads plugged into or fed from the GFCI so users can immediately assess the reason and reset the device. The GFCI with Audible Alert offers all the outstanding benefits you expect from SmartlockPro products, including our patented reset/lockout feature. Plus, the slim profile is compact and easy to install in any wallbox, even shallow ones.
Think of it this way, wouldn't you like to know that your half a beef in the garage or basement freezer that you don't get into everyday, but just walk by is in danger of being a real mess just because the outlet tripped? I know what I am installing the next time I go to the big box store. I recommend that YOU call an electrician. It will still be cheaper than replacing the beef.
