Ground-fault circuit interrupters (GFCI) are important life safety devices meant to stop harmful levels of electricity from passing through a person.
Most countries require these types of receptacles to be in all bathrooms, kitchens and garages, due to water posing the greatest risk. The problem, studies have found, is that on average 20% of GFCI’s nationwide are no longer functional and will not recognize that a person is getting electrocuted.
Amber Solutions has developed the world’s first solid-state GFCI, providing intelligence and connectivity for the first time ever. The products will alert homeowners of trips and unit end of life, increasing safety, reliability and effectiveness of a GFCI receptacle.
