Unplugged power causes freezer losses, are there warning systems?

Twice in as many weeks I have read of unplugged home freezers causing food losses. Are there inexpensive warning devices that alert to AC power failures?

Could not find a description or discussion but I did find one for sale at sixty bucks.

Here's an Indoor/Outdoor Thermometer with an temperature alarm for the "outdoor" sensor.

When set for upper & lower temperature set-points, it will sound an alarm whenever either set-point is reached.

(temperature is out of set limits)

-58F to +158F
-50C to +70C

Freezer upper = 10F
Freezer lower = -10F

Fridge upper = +50F
Fridge lower = +30F

example ...
Hot Water Heater (Boiler) upper +155F
Hot Water Heater (Boiler) lower +125F

Alarm will sound if not within those ranges.

Indoor/Outdoor Thermometer w/upper & lower temperature alarm $ 8.29 w/ free shipping
