Another tool for safety

I full time RV and this is on all the time. It is another layer of protection in addition to TV, phone and radio alerts. It has proven to detect tornado activity two times within 30 miles within the current year. It is NOT a lighting "Strike" detector. It detects cloud to cloud lighting intensity over specified periods of time to determine the likelihood of a tornado. Its track record of 95% accuracy is based on 10 yrs of study of the conditions required for a tornado and the results of unit testing. Understand, the announcement of a "tornado on the ground" will only be released when there is a human observation of it. At Night? That might be too late. Weather ADVISORIES cover broad areas and are based on wind and cloud formations observed by satellite and weather balloon results. This tool is designed to be more specific to your locale and to better identify the conditions during an active tornado or just prior to forming a tornado. In my experience it has gone off 10 minutes before the phone or TV does. Here's how I use it. It is on all the time and located next to a window, required for best performance, away from anything that produces radio waves or static from sparks, like an electric motor. You need to set it up on a clear day when there is no activity, NOT during a storm. Obviously you'll know if it's stormy outside. There are 5 levels of warnings. The first 3 are text only displayed on device. The first AUDIBLE alarm is level 4 when the storm is bad enough that conditions are right for possible tornado formation. I'm now alerted to start thinking about actions I may need to take. At this stage I silence the alarm as I am now aware. Phones, TV's and radios will begin going off soon as well. The next level alarm is 5 and is also audible plus adds a strobe light. Even if you silence alarm 4, 5 will still sound. Something is happening within 30 miles of you. At this point I start looking for visuals of an actual tornado, heavy lighting at night in a specific direction. Now is the time to take cover or at least be ready to go there at a moments notice. As stated at the top, this just is another tool to help you make an informed decision. It is NOT the be all end all solution. Below is the search text that will direct to the owner's manual of this great tool. tornado alert owners manual pdf Be safe out there.

Works well.

We have not had an actual tornado yet, but we have had a number of storms come through since we bought the Tornado Alert, and it did alert of lightening and other possible dangers. It seems to do exactly what it is supposed to do! Interesting technology!

Cool device that detects Sferics

This device works great. It detects sferics (electrical disturbances) in the upper atmosphere that are generated by severe storms. Just after setting it up we had a severe storm system blow through. The device triggered just before a tornado warning occurred over the weather radio network.

It really works

I bought three, one for my bonus daughter who lives in a trailer in a high tornado alley. One for the 40 acres we purchased by the lake that also has tornado's in Oklahoma. One for our home because I have no storm shelter and I have a cable network that goes out every time the wind blows. So we are very please with it, we had it at the lake on our land where were building a house and huge storms came up and we were able to get into shelter before the down pour, wind and lightening which hit several trees around us.

EASY SETUP

Very easy to set up, just plug it in and turn it on. It will tell you how the reception is OK or Not. Give it 10 minutes after turning it on to stablize the reception. Do not have your Cell phone turned on nearby. It will interfear with reception. Much much easier than our old weather set-up.
