Many property owners associate alarms with intruders, but that leaves out alarms that protect against accidents, such as fire alarms, and water leak alarms.

Water leak detection also plays a vital role in a complete security solution. Water damage occurs as a result of a variety of events including a washing machine hose that splits, pipes that freeze and burst, an overflowing toilet, or a water heater that fails.

The purpose of a water leak detector is to provide an early warning of a leak, which enables you to stop the water at the source or call for professional help.

Water leak detectors are inexpensive additions to an existing security system. However, they can save a property owner from a host of expensive issues.

These detectors are handy for areas that are not in the line of sight or frequently visited.

For example, a burst pipe in a vacation home could leak for days before the owner is made aware. In commercial applications, the damage could be much more significant. In multi-tenant locations, a cascading effect might occur when an overflowing sink ends up causing damage to several floors.
