Power Outage notification by text


New member

SO, I just bought the Apex Gold package and am excited about my new controller as a controller virgin....

I am extremely disappointed about how hard it is to set this thing up for power outage notification! I would need to buy two UPS, a second 8outlet bar and who knows what else which is way over 130$.

I found this item and was wondering what you guys think:


Looks like it would send me a text if the power goes out? might be a cheaper option?

What do you guys think??
Can anyone give me a shopping list of good UPS to buy and everything else if I go the APEX route?
