SIMPLESENCE® WIFI WATER AND LEAK DETECTOR Becomes part of Walmart family
NEWS – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
World’s Simplest Water Detector Joins World’s Largest Retailer;
Perfect Device for Consumers Looking for Point-to-Point Solution to Common Problem
OCEANSIDE, CA (April 19, 2020) – Sencentric, Inc., a leading provider of simplified and accurate environmental monitoring, announces that their SimpleSENCE® Water Leak and Freeze Detector is now available through Walmart.com, the website of the world’s largest retailer.
SimpleSENCE incorporates advanced technology to provide 24/7 monitoring and alert notifications to the user’s alert list, anywhere in the world. The standalone and self-contained device operates via Wi-Fi, connecting directly to a router without requiring a smart-home hub or expensive additional equipment (not to mention no subscription costs). And because SimpleSENCE connects to the router only 1-2 seconds about every 25 hours, it is virtually unhackable.
The availability of SimpleSENCE through Walmart.com demonstrates the increased demand for the product. Since its introduction in April 2019, SimpleSENCE has gained a strong following among consumers looking for an inexpensive yet effective, point-to-point solution for the problem of water leaks and bursting pipes, according to Joe Alfrey, CEO of Sencentric.

“I’m not sure when we first developed our SimpleSENCE Water Leak and Freeze Detector that we could have envisioned such meteoric success,” he stated. “We knew we had a device that filled a specific market need, but we probably didn’t realize just how pressing this need was.
“With our inclusion on the website of the world’s largest retailer, we’re more convinced than ever that we’ve got a tiger by the tail.”
Set up of the SimpleSENCE is extremely fast and painless: the SimpleSENCE app provides easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions. Users can also choose their preferred mode of alert: text, email, or both to their smartphone as soon as a leak or freezing condition is detected. SimpleSENCE can be used in numerous locations, including the kitchen, laundry, basement, attic, bathroom, and garage – any leak-prone area in the house where a leak can stay hidden from view and cause substantial structural damage over time.
In addition to warning the homeowner about water leaks, SimpleSENCE also alerts users to freezing temperatures that can lead to further concerns. This is especially helpful in cold weather areas that are prone to bursting pipes.
SimpleSENCE unit is available for $69.95 at Walmart.com. A 3-Unit Pack is available for $209.85, while a 5-Unit Pack sells for $349.75.
