Why A Smart Water Shut-Off Valve

Smart Water Shut-Off Valves: 

Imagine you’re on vacation and your smart water monitor detects a leak. Even the best monitor can’t prevent the leak from causing damage if you’re not there. A smart water shut-off valve connects to your home water supply and temporarily shuts off your water at the source. This can also be helpful if your main water shut-off is hard to find or difficult to access. You can activate the shut-off valve remotely or pair it with a smart water monitor or smart leak detectors to create a more effective home leak protection system. Generally, shut-off valves are installed by a professional. Prices vary depending upon whether the smart water shut-off valve is part of a smart water monitor system or purchased separately.

Fulfill your Home Insurance Requirements:

During the normal heating season your insurer has provided you a promise, aka coverage (policy) in exchange for premium. Very common there are unread portion of your policy that states if you are away from your dwelling for a certain period of time even if the water is shut off you may be required to have a competent person check on your house every day (24-hour period). Although the frequency is variable, most Insurance companies require a regular “walk through” of the property while you are away. It is prudent to check with your insurance company to determine what their requirements are. With a Water-Protec system in place you can check with your specific insurer, but monitoring is always free and monitors your property 24/7 for water/freezing damages. Make sure you are following your insurance company’s requirements. Let us add Peace of Mind.

Combined Freeze Sensors: 

Like leak sensors, freeze sensors are designed to detect the temperature conditions contributing to freezing pipes. Sensors can detect when the temperature inside your home drops below a set temperature, usually around 41°F (5°C). The sensors can then sound an alarm, call your phone, use your Wi-Fi to send an alert or communicate with your smart water shut-off valve.
