Protect Your Home from Water DamageMay 22, 2018
Wherever water flows, you can be sure it sustains and finds life. That’s a good thing. But sadly, the damage caused by Hurricane Season 2017 has taught us too much water can be deadly.
Catching Leaks Before They Do Damage
Those who have lost their homes to flooding know all too well the havoc that too much water can cause. And while a flood sensor (a small sensor that detects moisture levels to monitor potential flooding) cannot give you weather alerts to warn of natural disasters, it can and does monitor the temperature in your home to protect against possible freezing, leaky pipes and broken appliances.
When a leak develops, your home can flood in just a few minutes. Vivint, a leading smart home technology provider, offers a flood detector that can notify you as soon as moisture levels begin to rise. Integrated with your home automation system, their flood sensor will send you a notification on your phone or tablet.
There are many flood detectors available. Here are just a few to check out:
Fibaro: Flood Sensor ZW3
Honeywell: Lyric Wi-Fi Water Leak & Freeze Detector
Samsung SmartThings: Water Leak Sensor
