See full text

A system for monitoring and controlling the consumption of electrical energy and for warning a consumer of the status of their use including subsystem that produces three warning levels. The first warning is a visual signal while the second signal is an audio signal. The third signal is an audio signal louder than the second signal to warn a consumer that their supply of power will be interrupted in a given amount of time. The third signal also includes a timer to indicate that the power will be discontinued within a number of minutes. The system also includes an internal electric current restoration unit for reconnecting the supply of power when a preselected period of time has passed or power has been reduced to a preselected level before being interrupted.
