iSocket – a useful gadget for your home

Power outage alarm device

iSocket is an intelligent device that plugs into a power point and can alert you of a power failure. This gives you peace of mind or informs you of a problem. Another useful feature is that you can connect any home appliance to iSocket and start or stop it remotely from anywhere in the world. You can turn on a refrigerator remotely, stop a pump remotely, reboot your router remotely and so on. You can do these operations with any appliance that is fitted with a plug.

FAQ

Yes. iSocket is certified for use in Australia and New Zealand. Our partner is the recognised Responsible Supplier.
You do NOT pay a subscription fee to us. All you pay us is the price of the iSocket. The cost of using it depends on which SIM card provider you choose. You pay your operator for the messages sent from iSocket. In addition, if you want to use the iSocket for remote rebooting or switching you can configure to do this for free – you call the device and it calls you back. There is no charge for that. Voice mail must be disabled if you want to use this feature. Please check the next questions for additional information about recommended SIM cards and coverage.
Coverage will depend on which operator you choose to use with iSocket – in the same way as with your mobile phone. But there is one positive difference with iSocket – you won’t be travelling around the country with iSocket, so you can choose to use any operator that has coverage in the place that the iSocket will be installed. This allows you to choose the best tariff. There are 3 major mobile networks in Australia: Telstra, Optus and Vodafone. Check the coverage map for each of them and see if they provide service in your area. You then need to choose a SIM card that works on the network that covers your area. When you choose a network keep in mind that iSocket only needs to send text messages and does NOT require data traffic until you decide to perform remote firmware update. If you wish to use a feature where you reboot remotely by a phone call, then you also need voice support from the network (usually it is avaialble together with SMS plans). Some operators (e.g. Telstra) have removed information about voice & SMS coverage from their map. But, to put it simply, if there is ANY coverage in your area, then it definitely means that you will be covered for all your iSocket needs.
iSocket comes with a slot for a micro SIM card. It could be a SIM card from your telco supplier or pre-paid cards from providers that resell SIM cards that work on the networks of major carriers. These resellers may offer a better price for service and simple online activation for their SIM cards. Remember to check with them which network they operate on. Your coverage will depend on the service offered by the upstream carrier. It is difficult to say that iSocket will definitely work with any SIM card, because there are so many specific offers on the market nowadays. Some SIM cards might be tailored to work with data traffic only and they will not work with iSocket, because iSocket needs messaging (SMS). But we can assure you that there are enough customers in Australia who have successfully tested iSocket with SIM cards from many different providers.
We would recommend using pre-paid cards with long or no expiry date. These allow you to pay only for messages that iSocket sends to you and not to be tied into a monthly charges. If a message costs 9 cents and a power outage alert has only been sent once, that will be the total cost to you for the month. We would also recommend that you buy SIM cards from providers who have a simple activation process for new SIM cards, because iSocket does not have a keyboard or a screen. One of the good options for Australia is Truphone SIM. This is a prepaid card with simple online activation, airtime does not expire and the cost of messages is low – only 9 cents. Check their current offers on the Truphone website. Truphone SIM works on the Optus network. Check if this network is available where you plan to use iSocket. Our customers have also tested iSocket with SIM cards purchased from SavvyTel, Amaysim, LycaMobile and a few others. These have lower startup costs, but a higher price for an SMS, a shorter expiry date and a slightly more complicated activation process.
If the SIM card you purchased requires activation through a mobile phone, you should use an UNLOCKED phone that accepts a micro SIM card, because iSocket does not have a keyboard or a screen. If you don’t have this kind of phone we would recommend that you either ask the provider's store to activate the card for you, or borrow a phone from someone. You only need a phone once - for the activation of your SIM card and for disabling the PIN code if the card has a PIN code. Alternatively, consider buying a SIM card from providers that offer online activation without a phone, e.g. Truphone SIM.
Yes, iSocket will send a message as soon as power is restored and the mobile network is available.
