Tips & Tricks: Flood and Freeze Sensor Combo
The Water and Flood Sensor and the Freeze Sensor are valuable sensors that anybody could find a use for. It’s never a bad idea to be prepared for the unexpected, and what’s more unpredictable than a leak, burst pipe or the environment?
Frozen pipes and leaks are serious threats during the winter. Frozen pipes can burst and fill your home with water in a matter of minutes, while leaks can be caused by anything from a faulty water heater to melting snow. The end result is usually an expensive repair bill, but it can be prevented by pairing a Freeze Sensor with a Water and Flood Sensor.
A Powerful Duo
Individually, these two sensors are very effective. However, use the Water and Flood Sensor and the Freeze Sensor in tandem and you’ll get an extremely powerful combo that can prevent costly damage to your home.
The Freeze Sensor detects lower temperature conditions in your home. When the temperature drops to 41 degrees F, an alarm will be triggered. This gives you time to shut off the water or another action.
In the unfortunate event a pipe bursts, or if your home is flooded by rapidly melting snowfall, you’ll have a Water and Flood Sensor to detect leaks and flood conditions early, before it gets too serious. The moment the detector piece senses water, the alarm will be transmitted.
A home alarm system with these two sensors will have you ready for whatever the winter brings!
