DIY Backup Power for Home WI-FI

A simple tip to help ensure your home will always have access to the internet, even in the event of a local power outage is to install an uninterrupted power supply.

UPS Backup Battery Power Supply for Router and Modem

  • Basement Defender uses your home WiFi connection to send info and alerts about the condition of your sump pump system to you.
  • During power outages your modem and router will lose power and your WiFi connection will go down unless you have a backup power supply to your modem and router.
  • If you have a uninterrupted power supply (UPS) backup battery for your router and modem, Basement Defender will notify you of the power outage moments after it happens.
  • Without a UPS Backup Power Supply for your Router and Modem, Basement Defender can take up to 12 hours to notify you about power outages.
