From thermostats and cameras, to doorbells, door locks, alarms and more, home automation continues to connect homeowners. Nest, a leading home-automation products provider (and the preferred partner of Isaac Heating and Air Conditioning) introduced the ultimate in automated protection against a water catastrophe: LeakSmart.
Having a Smart Home with a LeakSmart device helps protect your home from water leaks. It automatically shuts off the water main in five seconds or less after detecting water.
We’ve all heard the horror stories of families who are away on vacation, only to come home to water-soaked kitchens, bathrooms, or basements, because a slow leak suddenly ruptured. Sometimes the damage can be catastrophic – not just from the water itself – but from the remnants of water damage. This can cause mold and other harmful home-safety issues.
LeakSmart is the perfect smart device to help you guard against a potential water disaster. The LeakSmart detection device, about the size of deck of cards, can be placed near your water heater, dishwasher, refrigerator, washer, toilet, and underneath the sink. In homes with attic air conditioning systems, it’s ideal to place near the emergency drain pipe, as well. This helps to avoid significant damage to your ceilings in case of overflow or leaks.
The LeakSmart System connects to your home Wi-Fi and is easily controlled by your smart phone. Simply download the LeakSmart app to receive push notifications, text, or email alerts in case a leak occurs. You can also integrate the LeakSmart System into your existing Nest app or engage the system with voice commands on Google Home or Amazon Alexa. If your Wi-Fi is down or your power goes out, the built-in rechargeable battery ensures that the LeakSmart System will continue working.
Not totally comfortable with Smart Home devices and smart phone apps? With LeakSmart, or any home-automation product Isaac installs, our technicians will take the time to train you and your family members on how to take full advantage of the many features these devices offer.
“The extension of Isaac’s business into home-automation technology is all about helping homeowners meet their increasing need for connectivity, safety, and most certainly, convenience,” said Joe Kruger, VP of Sales and Marketing for Isaac. “It started with home-owners who were installing and upgrading their heating and air conditioning systems. The move to a new Nest smart thermostat was a logical first step. Once they experienced the benefits of that Smart Home technology, they’ve started to ask for more.”
Every day, we meet with an increasing number of homeowners to explain the available Smart Home technologies, and review the benefits – such as safety, security, and convenience. This is all in an effort to help our clients make their homes more comfortable and improve their quality of life.
