Connected technologies offer a host of benefits, to be sure, but the Readi Smart Device recognizes that those same technologies come with inherent issues.

While all of our modern technological infrastructure is excellent when things are going smoothly, it wouldn't take much to knock those systems out of action. For instance, in the case of a severe weather event like a hurricane, cell towers often end up out of commission from overuse, making them inefficient as a means of distributing emergency information. However, an older technological innovation, the radio, is a more reliable outlet.

The Readi speaker looks like a stylish Bluetooth speaker ostensibly. However, on its underbelly it holds an AM radio specifically for picking up emergency transmissions.
