I've seen a few apps out there but it seems like you must plug your iPhone into the USB that connects to an electrical outlet for the app to alert you of an outage. This is useless because I need to be notified where an alarm will go off on my phone when my property has an outage. I've seen apps that will send you a text message, but that will not suffice. My concern is when I am asleep, a text message will not wake me up. I need an alarm that will trigger my phone and alert me when I am asleep, and away from the property.
