Many property owners only associate alarms with intruders. Water leak detection also plays a vital role in a complete security solution.

Water damage occurs as a result of a variety of events including a washing machine hose that splits, pipes that freeze and burst, an overflowing toilet, or a water heater that fails. The purpose of a water leak detector is to provide an early warning of a leak, which enables you to stop the water at the source or call for professional help. Water leak detectors are inexpensive additions to an existing security system. However, they can save a property owner from a host of expensive issues.

These detectors are handy for areas that are not in the line of sight or frequently visited. For example, a burst pipe in a vacation home could leak for days before the owner is made aware. In commercial applications, the damage could be much more significant. In multi-tenant locations, a cascading effect might occur when an overflowing sink ends up causing damage to several floors.

Our sales force encounters a wide range of security issues. On, in particular, was a hotel where a guest was washing a shirt in the sink. The clogged drain resulted in several thousand dollars of damage on multiple floors. Simple water detection could have prevented the issue.
