LeakSmart now works with the Samsung SmartThings Hub, enabling homeowners to easily connect the LeakSmart system to their already connected home. The SmartThings Hub allows users to connect wirelessly with a wide range of smart devices to make them all work together.
LeakSmart detects and protects homes from all sources of potential water leaks. SmartThings currently integrates with LeakSmart’s Protect by LeakSmart Valve, as well as LeakSmart’s water sensors that are placed around the home to detect leaks.
By setting rules for the LeakSmart System via the SmartThings app, the system will automatically shut-off the home’s main water supply or homeowners can easily turn off their water if one of LeakSmart’s sensors detects a leak or pipe-freezing conditions.
“LeakSmart and SmartThings were both founded on the premise of protecting homes from devastating water damage – the second-leading cause of home insurance claims,” said Larry Waxman, CEO of Waxman Industries, parent company of LeakSmart. “Now, with LeakSmart, SmartThings homeowners can have added peace of mind knowing that their home, a second home or vacation property is protected.”
LeakSmart integrates with more industry leading platforms than any other leak detection system on the market. In addition to SmartThings, LeakSmart works with Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, Google Nest, Wink and Control4. Home builders and homeowners alike are protected with LeakSmart’s five-year manufacturer’s warranty when purchased and installed by a professional installer. LeakSmart has received several industry awards, including being named the 2019 Automation Device of the Year at CES, the world’s largest consumer technology show, by the Consumer Technology Association and CE Pro magazine.
