Our SimpleSENCE Water Leak and Freeze Detector has an extremely simple job: to detect water leaks and freeze conditions and alert the homeowner – via text, email or both - when these events occur. Specifically, SimpleSENCE is meant to identify leaks that occur in “hidden” spots – places you wouldn’t normally spot a leak in your daily routine, such as under sinks, near a hot water heater, or in the attic.
The purpose of our SimpleSENCE Water Leak and Freeze Detector is, well, simple: To identify water leaks in places not immediately visible – areas that do not come under your gaze on a regular basis. This includes the areas under sinks in the kitchen and bathrooms; next to the hot water heater; near pipes up in the attic, and more. The damage that can be caused from even a slow-dripping water leak can be catastrophic. That’s why SimpleSENCE was devised to catch them as early as possible.
Many people have asked us, “Why did you make SimpleSENCE a WiFi-based product?” There are solid reasons: no additional equipment, works off the existing router in your home, dependable technology, etc. But there’s another reason. We considered making it a fully connected product, working with home automation hubs and becoming part of a home’s complete ecosystem. But honestly, we find smart homes…a little scary. Listen to this story about a friend of mine (we’ll call him Jason) who has a very advanced, fully equipped smart home. Then you’ll know what I’m talking about.
Since its introduction just a few months ago, our SimpleSENCE Water Leak and Freeze Detector has been extremely well received. Its simple operation, easy set up, and high level of accuracy are just a few of the reasons for this success.
There’s no sugarcoating it. Water leaks, left undetected, can be devastating -- structurally, financially, and emotionally. Walls and floors destroyed. Furniture ruined. Lives disrupted. The toll it takes not only on the home but on the inhabitants is often incalculable.
