WeatherCall@Home is a subscription-based service that registers your home or small business's location in our database, and constantly monitors that address for severe weather warnings issued by the National Weather Service which include this location. You may register up to 3 telephone numbers for each address, and ANY TYPE of phone can be called.
WeatherCall@Home costs $9.95 dollars per year. When you register, the system attempts to assign a precise latitude and longitude value to your location. If you enter a street address the system recognizes, your service BEGINS IMMEDIATELY. If there is a problem determining your location (for instance, a new housing development), there are easy steps to follow for you to locate yourself in the system.
WeatherCall@Home is the ONLY service of its type which VERIFIES that a user's location is correct and precise. Because it is so accurate, any error in the map location process can mean the difference in receiving a warning notification or not.
WeatherCall@Home is the ONLY service which calls your phone(s) AS MANY TIMES AS NECESSARY as a storm moves through the area. WeatherCall will notify you multiple times if changes or adjustments to the warning are made by the National Weather Service, guaranteeing you will have the most accurate and up-to-date notifications possible.
