In the cold winter months, freezing pipes and ice build up can cause serious damage in your home. Water leaks can spread quickly, unexpectedly and the worst part - the leaks typically take place out of sight. Water heaters in a tucked-away closet or pipes in your basement may not always be visible. This means it could take hours (dare I say, DAYS) before a leak is detected.
This is where the real damage can be done. Sitting water in an area of your home that isn't "frequented" can cause structural damage, and mold spores to build on organic surfaces.
Getting an alert on your smartphone the second water hits the floor will allow you to address the leak immediately. Keeping water off the floor, and out of your basement will help to maintain your home all winter long.
This year at CES, Alarm.com released a new piece of equipment that will work with the flood sensors SHUT YOUR WATER DOWN without needed you to run to the basement and find the main water shut off.
This new Smart Water Valve+Meter uses cutting-edge connected technology to detect leaks and shut them off automatically. As part of our whole-home Water Management solution, it can respond intelligently to drips and leaks in different areas of your home, and helps you use water more efficiently with monitoring and insights.
WATER MANAGEMENT & MITIGATION
Here's what makes this new technology a must-have for your home and your peace of mind.
Automatic Flood Shutdown
When a pipe or hose fails suddenly, your sole priority is: turn off the water. If you're home, and scramble to the water supply in time once you spot the leak, you'll avert disaster. By the time the mobile alert from Alarm.com hits your phone, the most important thing is already taken care of, likely saving you from hundreds to thousands of dollars in damage repairs and sparing your possessions from being ruined.
Whole Home Water Protection
Because your home's plumbing is hidden, leaks and drips rarely emerge in plain sight. Alarm.com's integrated Water Management technology spots problems that you can't, with wireless sensors that alert your security system to leaks behind washers, sinks, water heaters and other appliances.
The new Smart Water Valve+Meter will help you detect persistent leaks or running toilets that cause water bills to skyrocket over time. It can alert you to excessive water consumption at home or at a rental property. It can even alert you to low water temperatures if your pipes are at risk of freezing in winter.
Intelligent Responses, Easy Controls
Powered by smart home security technology, our Smart Water Valve+Meter will respond intelligently when it matters. We will be adding this piece of equipment to our inventory in early 2020, so be sure to ask your representative more about water mitigation.
