What are Flood Sensors and Do You Need Them?
Published on Thursday, May 28, 2020
Flood sensors are a small sensor that can detect moisture levels for a potential flood in your home or business. People in flood-prone areas will often purchase flood insurance, but what if you are not in a flood area? Do you still need a flood sensor? Absolutely! A flood sensor can act as its own insurance policy against all water damage resulting from burst pipes, internal leaks, clogged drain lines, faulty washing machine hose, or basement ground leaks.
Benefits of Installing Flood Sensors
Instant Notification - The sensor will give instant notifications if water is detected, resulting in faster response time and reducing potential damage. A leak can turn into a flood in just a few minutes, depending on the severity. Early detection could be the difference between $1000 of damage and $10,000 of damage.
Numerous Applications - Flood sensors offer excellent prevention for all homes and businesses. Some typical applications for homes are near washing machines, dishwashers, basements, bathroom plumbing, and water heaters. Companies should place them where their most sensitive assets are. Examples include data centers, warehouse areas, and areas most susceptible to water intrusion.
Easy to Install & Use - Flood sensors are easily integrable with current or new security systems. Our security experts will evaluate your home or business to determine the best placement of sensors. Flood sensors also have wireless connectivity and battery power, making them easy to place in water-prone locations.
One well-placed flood sensor could prevent a leak from turning into significant property damage and reduce the need for costly repairs or possibly save your home or business. Whether you already have a system, are looking to upgrade, or looking for a new security system, you can also benefit from having flood sensors installed!
