Cell Phone Alerts

By Cherie Parker
Published: April 1, 2007
Q:   I own a cabin in Vermont where we have electricity but no phone service. We have made it into a year-round cabin and leave the heat on all winter, but I’m afraid of boiler failure or electric outage and the house freezing up.

We do have cellular phone service. Is there any type of cellular/wireless alarm system that I can install that will phone me when the temperature goes below a certain point?
