Leak Detection is an advanced combination of connected sensors and software. It delivers the peace of mind, security and connectivity consumers expect in their home regarding water leaks. It can simply be placed near a water source to monitor for issues and alert as needed. It’s engineered to detect a range of water levels, from pooling water to a few drips that can cause costly damage over time. Two concentric rings of conductive metal within the unit monitor for the presence of unwanted water. Should any water flow over the top or pool underneath the device, an electrical connection between the two rings triggers an automatic alert to a connected smartphone or tablet. For further assurance, an audible alert and flashing LED light will activate to notify those in the home as soon as a leak is detected. Designed to work with any water source in a home, including water heaters, washing machines, sump pumps, sinks and toilets. Each sensor requires three AAA batteries with an expected two-year lifespan. It is anticipated to be available nationwide in the second half of 2016.
