Customer Question

Hello, Not sure if you might be able to help me with this question I have got a single consumer box in an out building wired to my house (3 Pin Plug) I was wondering if there was any sort of device or indicator or buzzer that can be wired towards the end of the cable so that if the trip trips out I know about it the second it happens Thank you

Welcome. My name is ***** ***** would be glad to assist.If the power plugs in for the connection, the below is what would work best to monitor the powerCLICK HERE for the best option which allows for many options with today's technology If that is too much for the application, will look for the simpler style with only local alarm, let me know the thoughts? Thanks

hi yes that would be great but a bit more expensive then i wanted to spend is there no other way
Expert:  AssuredElectrical replied 11 months ago.
Ok, understand.So much has the technology built into them today, usually first choices.How about the below, it plugs into any receptacle on that circuit to monitor powerCLICK HEREIt is simple but the alarm is only at the location unfortunately.Anytime you get into remote alarming to other locations, the cost will be about the same as the smart plug

ok but i need something that tells me if i need to reset the trip switch in the outbuilding without having to go out all the time
Expert:  AssuredElectrical replied 11 months ago.
ok,not sure of the statement.exactly how is the outbuilding getting its power?a cord plugs in at the house and feeds the power?how many receptacles are in the building?all are on the same power, correct?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
the out building is getting its power from a long mains lead and a 3 pin plug in the out building there are 2 plug sockets and both are used at all times and yes they are on the power coming from the single consumer unit
Expert:  AssuredElectrical replied 11 months ago.
Ok,If you have no open sockets power available, then the only option is to use the first unit and plug in the power to it to monitor.Or add a socket off the power just for the 2nd monitor.
