April Showers Bring Water Leaks

Ah the old saying, "April showers bring May flowers"... but before the pilgrim jokes and Easter, what are we going to do about all that water? When you think of threats to your home, water damage probably isn't the first thing that springs to mind. But it's commonplace and costly.

 

 

Every year, water damage from leaks, burst pipes and broken appliances costs homeowners and insurers upwards of $9 billion . It's responsible for 23% of all homeowner property losses annually.

 

Why is it so costly?

Because there's never been a good way to detect leaks right when they happen. If you're fortunate enough to notice quickly, you might get away with just replacing a carpet. But given time, water ruins floors, furniture and drywall, and causes mold in the worst cases. The longer a leak goes undiscovered, the more expensive it's going to be. But there's finally a smart solution that makes you aware of a leak—so you can take action right away.

 

While traditional security systems protect you against intruders and little else, Smart Security guards your home against a wide range of threats, including the elements: fire, carbon dioxide, and now water damage.

 

In the event of a water leak in your home, our IQ Flood can detect the leak and immediately sends an alert to your smartphone so you can take action and prevent damage. It can even shut off your water supply automatically.

 

Detection

The solution uses water sensors to detect leaks. These small devices are easy to install and can be placed in your home's most vulnerable areas. You can place them under your sink, behind your washing machine, in the closet where your water heater is, or by your basement door. Once your sensors are installed and configured, your Alarm.com system will recognize where each one is, enabling it to instantly pinpoint the location of a detected water leak.

 

Awareness

The minute one of your water sensors detects a leak, your system will alert you on your smartphone. Right away, you can start fixing the problem. If you're home, you can immediately shut off your water supply and prevent the water from spreading. If you're not home, you still have options, especially if you have a smart lock on your front door. You can call a trusted neighbor and let them in remotely. You can also call your plumber, explain the situation, and have a unique door code set up for them by the time they arrive.

 

Automatic Response

For ultimate control, you can have an automatic shutoff valve installed on the water line coming into your home. These devices let you remotely turn your home's water on and off from your smartphone. When a leak is detected by the sensor Alarm.com will proactively shut the water off to your home. If you travel a lot, or have a second home, it's an ideal solution.
