Grillo (Cricket) is the only receiver in the Mexican market that directly connects residents with the government's earthquake early warning infrastructure (SASMEX).

Up until now, people have relied on TV notices, 3rd party applications, or very expensive government sold receivers. Grillo is the first affordable, and easy-to-use device that can give up to 90 seconds warning before an earthquake.
