E. quake Alarm / Earthquake Alarm

E. quake Alarm

Earthquakes are often not in the state of early warning, leading to people by surprise and cause casualties. For solving this problem and saving lives, I developed a unique product with App, called E.quake Alarm. Unlike traditional earthquake alarms, E.quake will connect to cellphone and automatically work on the App program to provide full seismic information and warn user by alarm and vibration. It also can transmit radio signals to outside for help when people are trapped, so the rescue team can detect the location. Today, earthquakes can become more severe, the E.quake would be a necessary equipment at home for saving our life.
