PRLog - Sep. 5, 2007 - PORTLAND, Ore. -- Tualatin, OR - (September 5, 2007) – YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE! This is an alert from Hideki Electronics. The company today announced that its new Honeywell branded home weather stations are equipped with the NOAA Emergency Alert System with Specific Area Messaging Encoding (S.A.M.E.).
New Honeywell Emergency Alert Weather Stations
Available nationwide this month, three new Honeywell Emergency Alert Weather Stations that broadcast up to 62 different warnings, are products designed to keep the public informed of any potential or occurring hazard. National, regional and local alerts that range from icy conditions and tornado warnings to amber alerts and terrorist activity are all part of the alert system included within the base product of atomic time and wireless environmental conditions for temperature, humidity and many other features.
Jim Boyle, president of Hideki Electronics, said, “Knowledge is power. Having vital information, whether it is a major storm warning or a closed highway, our new Honeywell weather stations will let you know immediately so that you can make safe, conscious decisions. Particularly as hurricane season peaks for coastal areas, there isn’t any substitute for being well-informed prior to taking any action.”
The new Honeywell Emergency Alert Weather Stations (PCR507, RN507, and TN924) monitor numerous environmental conditions so that every member of a household can make choices about activities, safety and appropriate attire. The TN924 is the world’s most feature-rich semi-professional home weather station to date. While the product offers rain, wind, forecasting, atomic time, and up to eight wireless indoor and outdoor sensors that have a range up to 300 feet, the NOAA Emergency Alert system makes the product stand out as the most complete environmental monitoring product on the market. The RN507 has indoor temperature, atomic time aside from NOAA. The PCR507 allows for an automatic low-light projection of the time and temperature beamed in infrared on the ceiling or wall.
According to Boyle, adding NOAA was a top priority of Hideki, marketer of the Honeywell branded weather stations. “Hideki and Honeywell want everyone to know that we are committed to providing products that offer valuable information to enhance today’s busy lifestyle.”
About NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration):
NOAA Weather Radio (NWR) is a network of radio stations continuously broadcasting weather information directly from the nearest NWR office. NWR broadcasts official Weather Service warnings, watches, forecasts and other hazard information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Working with the Federal Communication Commission’s (FCC) Emergency Alert System, NWR is an "All Hazards" radio network, making it the single source for comprehensive weather and emergency information. In conjunction with Federal, State, and Local Emergency Managers and other public officials, NWR also broadcasts warning and post-event information for all types of hazards – including natural (such as earthquakes or avalanches), environmental (such as chemical releases or oil spills), and public safety (such as AMBER alerts (missing children) or 911 Telephone outages).
The Honeywell Home Weather Stations can be programmed to receive information specific to a certain area, using the S.A.M.E. feature, and can sound an alarm to alert users of approaching dangerous weather, natural and man-made hazard events as necessary.
For the TN924, a maximum of five separate channels of temperature and humidity readings can be wirelessly monitored too. “Temperature can be monitored upstairs and downstairs, inside or outside, in a baby nursery, wine cellar, in-law apartment, attic, garage… anywhere,” Boyle added.
