Eton announced the American Red Cross ZoneGuard weather alert clock radio and ZoneGuard+ weather alert clock radio system. Both new ZoneGuard products feature an AM/FM radio, NOAA weather alerts, S.A.M.E. (specific area message encoding) technology and an advanced visual and audio alert system.
The S.A.M.E. system enables users to enter their county code for local pending weather advisories, watches and warnings. Up to 25 individual locations can be programmed into the radio, ensuring users are up-to-date about pending danger in their surrounding area. Integrated LED lights will flash red for warnings, orange for watches and green for advisories issued in one of the set local zones; in conjunction, a loud audio alert will sound.
For those who may want to hear alerts in multiple rooms, the ZoneGuard+ (pictured above) includes a base station and two wireless, AAA battery-powered remote modules. The ZoneGuard+ system enables users to see color-coded alerts (warnings, watches and advisories) on the base unit and hear audio alerts on every unit. The remote modules blast S.A.M.E. audio alerts as the base unit in other rooms of the house simultaneously, so you’re always aware throughout your home. ZoneGuard+ Modules are also available for purchase separately to receive alerts in additional rooms. ZoneGuard+ also offers AM/FM radio, NOAA weather alerts and alarm clock with snooze.
Both ZoneGuard and ZoneGuard+ feature an elegant, compact design with stand and wall mount options, making each compatible with any room in the house. With the ability to stay powered via both AC adapter and AA batteries, ZoneGuard and ZoneGuard+ ensure you always have access to potentially life-saving information.
“Our goal at Etón is to educate and help the public be as prepared as possible before a disaster hits,” said Esmail Hozour, CEO of Eton Corporation. “With recent storms like Hurricane Sandy again showing us that time is of the essence when severe weather hits, we hope to continue to help families be as prepared and safe as possible in 2013.”
Continuing its long-standing partnership with the American Red Cross, ZoneGuard and ZoneGuard+ help promote the American Red Cross message of preparedness and a portion of each sale will go towards the organization.
