Protect your home from water damage and leaks by using a wi-fi water leak and freeze detector.

Fire might be a homeowner’s greatest fear, but any insurance company will tell you that water is the far more common cause of property damage, even if you don’t live in an area subject to flooding. And it can come from many sources: A failing water heater, a burst pipe, a broken supply line under your sink, a clogged toilet, or even a split hose connected to your washing machine. Just as it’s essential to have a smoke detector in each of your home’s bedrooms and common areas, you’d be wise to install leak detectors in places where water damage could start. By catching leaks and freezes early, you have a better chance to avoid expensive repairs and loss of personal items. These detectors can be placed near trouble spots like sump pumps, water heaters, washers, and sinks. Each leak detector can be individually named and registered in an app you install on your mobile device. If a leak is detected or a pipe begins to freeze, the app on your phone will alert you – no matter where you are. Set up is simple and easy. The Home app offers step-by-step instructions for connecting and setting up the Wi-Fi Water Leak and Freeze Detector.

What Are Water Leak and Freeze Detectors?

A water leak detector will ensure you are aware of a leak or a frozen pipe before the leak becomes a flood, or the pipe bursts. As it is connected to your home’s Wi-Fi, it is able to notify you via your smartphone and the accompanying app wherever you are, meaning you have the power to do something about it before it gets out of hand.  The leak detector is battery-operated, with the battery lasting around two years and there is no need for a hub or base station for it to connect to your network either so everything is nice and simple. Installing a water leak detector means the chances of you coming home to a water-filled apartment are significantly reduced.

How Do Water Leak and Freeze Detectors Work?

A water leak detector identifies the presence of water, often by measuring the electrical conductivity of the water present and completing a circuit to send a signal. For installations that are not monitored by a professional alarm monitoring company, the sensor and its control module can send out a notification to the homeowner through an app that can be read on a smartphone. Your smartphone is command central. From here you can get alerts and turn your water on or off from anywhere in the world (assuming you’re connected). You can view your home’s water consumption, or even contact your plumber to have them come fix a problem. Even if you don’t have your phone with you, some water leak detection systems are smart enough to automatically shut the water off for you if something catastrophic is happening.

Should You Buy a Water Leak and Freeze Detector System?

The best way to avoid water damage is to prevent it. Water leak detection systems can identify and stop leaks before they get out of control. These systems also give you full transparency as to what’s happening in your house when it comes to water usage. Water leak detectors are designed to identify leaks and protect homeowners from experiencing catastrophes. If you want peace of mind when it comes to preventing leak or freeze problems, then we recommend purchasing a water leak and freeze detector system.
