Aside from the cost of the device, there is no additional monthly charge for this valuable service.
A flood sensor is a small device that utilizes two metal probes to detect the presence of water. Flood sensors, along with other devices such as smart water valves, sump sensors, and low temperature sensors can help prevent water damage to your home which could be incredibly expensive to repair.
How does a flood detector work?
When water comes into contact with the flood sensor, an alarm is triggered. The alarm generates an audible alert in the home or business, and also sends an alarm to the monitoring centre. The early warning allows for early intervention and helps limit damages caused by flooding.
Where do you place a flood sensor?
Flood sensors are often installed in several locations throughout a home or business. They are strategically placed near drains or appliances that may pose a flooding risk if they should happen to malfunction.
