After a father and his family are hit with a sewage backup during a thunderstorm, he sets up a foolproof water-detection solution using SmartThings, and it saves him from a second flood later that week. Read More
We know how devastating a minor leak can be if it goes undetected. Three years ago, SmartThings CEO Alex Hawkinson discovered that a leaky pipe had caused his entire vacation home to flood. By the time he and his family discovered the damage, his porch and basement were rotting, and his home had endured $80,000 worth of structural damage.
Had he been alerted as soon as his pipe started leaking, he could have saved his family’s home and personal belongings. To make sure this wouldn’t happen again, Alex came up with the idea for SmartThings.
Our brand-new Water Detection Kit is the easiest and most affordable way to prevent a little headache from turning into a major disaster. Simply place each of the two included SmartSense Moisture sensors in areas of your home susceptible to water leaks or water entry and receive an immediate alert on your smartphone at the first sign of excess moisture.
For less than $200 (a $9 savings versus purchasing the products individually) and fewer than 15 minutes, the SmartThings Water Detection Kit offers you invaluable peace of mind.
The Water Detection Kit includes:
• 1 SmartThings Hub
• 2 SmartSense Moisture sensors
