June 16, 2022

You figured out that you need a water leak detection system or were just told to do so by your insurance agent. Don’t be alarmed, it will save you a lot of money and frustration one day.

Here are a few tips on what to look for

(yes, we know, we are biased 😊)


you want your system to be there, on alert as the leak occurs. so, what does it mean? It has to operate on its own and not only on the external power supply and WIFI connectivity.

See all types of leaks

the invisible leaks that run under the floor, in the ceiling, or the walls are the most frequent. Be sure your system can detect them

High resolution

it’s very important to detect the leaks at an early stage. It saves a lot of time and money on repairs. Small leaks grow in time, treating them as they start is the best option.

True alerts

using a smart AI algorithm will make sure that you won’t be troubled by false alerts


knowing you have a leak is the first step, but if you don’t stop the water, you let the damage increase. So be sure you have the ability to shut off the water from afar


do you need to make any preparations? if so, don’t forget to add it to the price you are paying


after installation, what do you need to do to make sure your system is on guard? Does it have a daily checkup?

Easy to operate

have all the data on your app at first. Then look for:

  • Away mode – to increase sensitivity while you are not at home
  • Anti-freeze – let me know when the temperature is getting close to a freezing point so I should open the faucet
  • Managing your contacts easily
