LeakSmart Advances Integrations with Control4
September 11, 2019
LeakSmart, one of the world's most intelligent leak and flood protection systems, has announced updates to its native integrations with Control4 Smart Home systems, a SnapAV brand, to create a fully integrated leak detection and protection solution for home, multi-family, hospitality and commercial applications.
LeakSmart is a whole home system that detects and protects from all sources of potential water leaks. Native integration with Control4 includes LeakSmart's Cut-In and Snap Valves as well as LeakSmart's reusable water sensors that are placed throughout the home to detect leaks.
"With Control4 smart homes, homeowners have made the investment of unifying their lighting, entertainment, comfort, security and communications for a whole-home solution. However, a devastating leak or flood could destroy that investment in seconds," said Larry Waxman, CEO of Waxman Industries, parent company of LeakSmart. "With LeakSmart, homeowners have peace of mind and confidence that their homes are protected from water damage."
"Water detection is a simple and effective feature that adds peace-of-mind to any smart home. Integrated into a Control4 system, LeakSmart products let homeowners actively protect their homes from water damage with smartphone notifications. As part of our diverse product ecosystem, LeakSmart integration is another option for home protection in Control4 systems, suiting homes, MDU, and commercial installations," said Noel Gouff, VP business and corporate development at SnapAV.
By adding LeakSmart, homeowners can equip their Control4 Smart Home with leak detection and monitor the devices remotely. With Smart Home OS 3, homeowners can even "favorite" their LeakSmart devices for a quick, at-a-glance status providing peace of mind that no unusual moisture levels have been detected.
"LeakSmart is a terrific solution for many Control4 channel partners, especially home builders, property managers, and hospitality operators. Unlike disparate smart devices, with LeakSmart, Control4 now has the capability to take action by notifying the appropriate person(s) and also restricting water flow – which significantly reduces the risk of property damage or loss," said Earnest J. Morgan, head of global residential construction and hospitality solutions, SnapAV + Control4.
LeakSmart is a leading leak and flood protection system with more partnerships than any other brand on the market and, in addition to Control4, also works with Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa and Google Nest, SmartThings and Wink. Homebuilders and homeowners alike are protected with LeakSmart's 5-year manufacturer's warranty when purchased and installed by a professional installer. LeakSmart has received several industry awards, including being named the Automation Device of the Year at CES, the world's largest consumer technology show, by the Consumer Technology Association and CE Pro magazine.
