of the largest single food investments a family makes is in the their freezer. We buy hundreds if not a couple thousand dollars worth of protein. Then put it in a freezer and forget it, which is in the basement, garage, shed or spare room, basically somewhere that you rarely ever go, until you realize the plug tripped and you are out all that meat.
As someone who takes preparedness seriously and believes in preparing for the most likely events, a freezer or plug failure is one of those things. I picked up an Accurite Freezer Alarm a couple of years ago, it did the trick but I wasn’t happy with it from day one. The battery life was crappy, the range was not great and the only way you knew it was activated is if you were in the same room where the quiet alarm was going off.
It quickly became an alarm system that I didn’t’ use or pay attention to. The batteries would die quick and it would constantly lose connection to the base station, so yet again I went on the hunt for something better.
I decided if I replaced my old system I wanted something that interfaced with my smart phone so I could monitor it when I wanted to and if there was an issue I would know about it right away. Most of the sensors were Bluetooth only which meant I could only monitor them if I was in range, again not Ideal. Then one day I ran across a brand new Product the Govee Freezer Temperature Humidity Alarm. It had a feature no others I had seen yet had, built in WiFi support.
It literally only had a single review on Amazon at the time of ordering, but I took a chance got one, and loved it so much i picked up two more right away. In the three months since I got it, it now has 4.5 stars with over 1000 reviews, so they must have done something right.
The Govee Freezer Temperature Humidity Alarm lets me monitor my freezer from my smart phone, and will send me alerts if the temp gets above a certain level. It has a super easy app to use, the battery life is so much longer than the Accurite, because you can have it set to only send a singal once an hour. It is built well and just does what its supposed to do. This is one of the products that I took a chance on and was floored by how much better it was than I expected.
