The tornadoAlert is the first new generation warning device that you can easily keep in your home. tornadoAlert safeguards you and your family in three critical ways. Its advanced warning capabilities mean that it warns you sooner than any other similar device. This means you will have up to 30 minutes longer to get to a place of safety and its accurate 95% of the time. By contrast existing community-wide services are accurate only 25% of the time, tornadoAlert is ready to go to work for you and your family right out of the box. We call it Plug and Protect. Plug it in and within 60 seconds it’s scanning the skies and protecting you and your family. Although it’s only about the size of a coffee cup tornadoAlert packs a big punch. NASA proven principles and methodologies ensure that it is 24/7 vigilant: at night, during power outages and when other warning systems cease to function, tornadoAlert emits a strobe light and a 90 dB warning signal as loud as a jackhammer at 50 ft. You won’t sleep through it. In addition, tornadoAlert is also calibrated to detect incoming severe thunderstorms lightning is still the third biggest weather killer in the United States. Plug-it in. Protect your family now. Some things are too precious to put at risk.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Accurate, timely information about approaching severe weather - time to react The tornadoAlert was easy to set up and has already accurately detected approaching severe weather and lightning. It was at least 10 minutes ahead of local TV warnings. I especially like that it updates the distance of approaching danger every 60 seconds. January 6, 2015
