Flood Detector

Minimize the damage with early detection

(888) 805-5456

A flood detector is a smart device that can help prevent water damage to homes and buildings. These devices use sensors to detect water leaks and alert the homeowner or building manager of any potential problem. The market offers a range of options for flood detectors, with some offering additional capabilities such as temperature and humidity readings. These devices activate only if water touches them, and should be placed in areas where leaking water would pool. It is recommended to opt for a device with an alarm sound that is at least 80 decibels loud and has a stable connection to Wi-Fi to ensure alerts are received. Some devices may rely on a hub and can be linked with other devices for extra features such as voice alerts from smart speakers or the ability to trigger a light bulb. While flood detectors cannot entirely prevent floods, they can help reduce the risk of severe damage by alerting homeowners or building managers to any problems quickly.

Leaks are common. Extensive damage doesn’t have to be.

One of the most frequently made insurance claims is for water damage. However, the installation of strategically placed flood sensors can aid in the early detection of leaks. This may serve to limit water damage and lower the costs associated with repairs in areas where flooding is a regular occurrence, such as in regions with appliances connected to water lines or in basements susceptible to water seepage.

Quick notifications can help minimize damage

Floods and water damage are among the most common insurance claims in households. However, with the right flood detectors and monitoring systems, extensive damage can be avoided. Quick notifications can help minimize damage in case of a leak, and with flood detection, homeowners receive alerts as soon as water leaks are detected. Flood sensors are battery-powered and easy to install in hard-to-reach areas, such as basements, dishwashers, and clothes washers. Notifications are sent directly to smart devices, allowing for faster response times to prevent further damage and reduce the cost of repairs.

Help protect vacation or rental homes

Vacation or rental homes are valuable investments that require proper protection from potential damages, especially from water leaks. Water leaks can happen anytime and lead to catastrophic damage to floors, walls, furniture, electronics, and personal belongings. As such, it is necessary to have a flood detector installed to safeguard a vacation or rental home from water leaks. A flood detector, commonly known as a whole-house system, is a type of alert system that detects water leaks or drips and can shut off the main water supply line to prevent further damage. This system includes sensors placed in strategic locations such as next to appliances, in the basement, or attic where leaks are likely to occur.
