Reduce Flood Effects with a Water Leak Alarm

Great for vacation homes or any residence, the water sensor from Protect Your Home, an ADT Authorized Premier Provider, acts as a flood detector that alerts you of potential water damage danger in your home. Whether from external flooding due to a rainstorm, standing groundwater, or other weather conditions, or in-home dangers like leaking water heaters or appliances, water damage is hard to undo—so use a water sensor alarm to keep danger areas dry!

How a Water Alarm Works—and Where to Place It

The best water leak detector options use electricity to detect the presence of water. By measuring the electrical conductivity of the surroundings, the water alarm detector senses water and completes a circuit to send an alert. While there are many ways you can receive an alert from a water alarm, Protect Your Home water alarms use Wi-Fi to signal your panel that water is present and send a text or app alert.

Your Wi-Fi water sensor can be placed anywhere with the potential for water damage. Common locations include basements in danger of water infiltration and near any appliance that uses water, including washers, dryers, dishwashers, and hot water heaters.

Mobile Water Detector Alarm Alerts with ADT Pulse®

Get the most out of your water leak detector by getting alerts on your phone via the ADT Pulse® mobile app. When you’re away from home—at work, running a quick errand, even out of town on vacation—is when your home is in the most danger from extensive water damage. Mobile alerts allow you to take action quickly and prevent permanent damage.


Help Protect Your Vacation Home

When you don’t occupy a residence year-round, it can be hard to monitor. Even if friends or family nearby check in regularly, it doesn’t take long for damage to become permanent in the case of water infiltration. Equip your vacation home with a water leak sensor and—wherever you are—get alerts to your mobile phone via the ADT Pulse® app. And while you’re at it, equip your main residence with water sensors as well, so you don’t have to worry when you’re at your vacation home either!
