(Palo Alto, CA - April 23, 2013) – Etón Corporation, a leading creator of high-performance, eco-minded consumer products, announces the American Red Cross ZoneGuard weather alert clock radio. Building upon Etón’s successful line of preparedness products, the sleek new ZoneGuard features S.A.M.E. technology and an advanced visual and audio alert system to alert you to impending severe weather in your area. The ZoneGuard is now available for purchase at Radio Shack and Amazon.com.
Knowing that minutes can make all the difference in emergency situations, Etón combined AM/FM clock radio, NOAA weather alerts, S.A.M.E. technology and - for the first time - visual light alerts to create ZoneGuard. The S.A.M.E. system enables users to enter their county code for local pending weather advisories, watches and warnings. Up to 25 individual locations can be programmed into the ZoneGuard ensuring users are up-to-date about pending danger in their surrounding area. Integrated LED lights flash red for warnings, orange for watches and green for advisories issued in one of the set local zones; in conjunction, a loud audio alert will sound.
“Our goal at Etón is to educate and help the public be as prepared as possible before a disaster hits,” said Esmail Hozour, CEO of Etón Corporation. “With top forecasters predicting an above-average 2013 Atlantic hurricane season, the ZoneGuard comes at a crucial time to help consumers be more prepared than ever.”
The ZoneGuard features an elegant, compact design with a stand and wall-mount options, making it convenient to incorporate into any room in the house. With the ability to stay powered via both AC adapter and AA batteries, ZoneGuard ensures you always have access to potentially life-saving information.
Continuing Etón’s long-standing partnership with the American Red Cross, ZoneGuard helps promote the American Red Cross message of preparedness by giving a portion of each sale to the organization. The Etón and American Red Cross by Etón ZoneGuard is now available at Radio Shack and Amazon.com for MSRP $39.99.
