How do I install Grillo?

It’s easy:

  1. Place on a flat surface such as a table, or fix on your wall
  2. Connect to a power socket with the included USB cable and adapter
  3. Download our free App for iOS or Google, and register your device
  4. The Grillo will make circular blue pattern with its LEDs to indicate it is working and ready

What happens when there is an earthquake?

You will only receive alerts for earthquakes you will feel. We do not disturb you if it is not significant.

The Grillo will make a loud sound and use the following colors:

  • GREEN means some light shaking will occur
  • YELLOW means some medium shaking will occur
  • RED means strong shaking will occur

In what countries do you ship?

We’re shipping in any place in Mexico and Chile, where we have existing sensor networks. If you live elsewhere, you may want to create your own network with a kit of 5 or more sensors – contact us!

How reliable is your earthquake detection?

Our algorithms are validated by top institutions and research centers (UNAM, Berkeley). We haven’t registered any false positives (ie. signals similar to earthquakes that aren’t actually earthquakes) in the last 2 years.

We have recently conducted an analysis on the detection speed of major Early Earthquakes Warning systems available on the market (private and public ones), and we’ve discovered that in 2018, on 25 earthquakes detected, we were the first ones to detect and announce it in 80% of the cases. We’re quite proud of that ?

I have an app on my phone! Why do I want this ?

Good question. Mobile apps are great (we have one too), but they have some problems:

  • Cellular networks can become congested. Local Wifi is more stable.
  • Apps use Push Notifications that sometimes arrive minutes after the event
  • You cannot put your phone in Do Not Disturb mode at night

What's the difference with SASMEX?

Grillo has a different alerting system to SASMEX:

  • SASMEX only covers a few cities in Mexico
  • SASMEX doesn’t tell you how you will feel the earthquake
  • SASMEX official radio device is expensive and doesn’t work in many locations indoors

This is awesome. But what do I do after an earthquake?

We have you covered! Our Grillo Pulse system monitors your building and tells you if its safe to enter again.
