When water leaks happen, damage is inevitable and it happens with surprising speed. A water sensor and leak alarm can help notify the business or home owner when a flood or water leak has been detected. These water alarms will typically sound a local warning buzzer or siren. Plus a water alarm can also notify off site staff by telephone call, email or text alert in case no one is home or it's after hours.
Some water alarms are stand alone like the SpotProtect WiFi Water Leak Sensor. It requires only a WiFi network and internet in order to notify owners, occupants or staff during a water leak.
Others work as part of a larger stem with multiple water sensors and a central control unit that sends out the alert.
