Grillo Active has developed a revolutionary $50 earthquake early-warning system to serve 1 billion people
It has the potential to save thousands of lives by alerting them that an earthquake is about to hit, giving them more time to prepare


  • Grillo (the Spanish word for cricket) is an early warning system
  • It is a very compact device that integrates with the frequencies that SASMEX operates on and passes that information to its users
  • Grillo devices come at an affordable cost of $50 compared to the SASMEX receiver which costs $330 and is out of reach for most people
  • With a more available device for a large population, the warning system will help reduce casualties from earthquakes
