WiFi Water Sensor Targets Leak Detection
Sencentric, Inc., a provider of simplified and accurate environmental monitoring, introduces SimpleSENCE, the industry’s most feature-rich, WiFi sensor for detecting water leaks and freeze conditions.
The SimpleSENCE leak detection is the first line of defense for leak and freeze protection, using advanced technology to provide 24/7 monitoring and alert notification to the user’s alert list, anywhere in the world. The standalone and self-contained SimpleSENCE operates via Wi-Fi, connecting directly to a router without requiring additional equipment (not to mention no subscription costs). This is a major differentiator, as sensors without a Wi-Fi connection that require a smart hub have proven to be a significant barrier to entry for many consumers.
The small yet ergonomic design of the SimpleSENCE detector allows for optimal placement in any leak prone area, even in the tightest spots. Set up of the SimpleSENCE is extremely fast and simple: the SimpleSENCE app provides easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions. The user 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.
While the user’s smartphone is the primary method of notification, SimpleSENCE also features a loud onboard siren which activates when a leak or freezing temperature condition is detected.The siren will alert anyone in the area when the user’s smart phone is not close by. This function also ensures that a user who is nearby will be alerted even when the WiFi connection is down.
In addition to warning 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.
The two-year battery life far exceeds the life of most competitive products, many of which offer just one year. Plus, the extended two-year warranty provides the user with significant peace of mind.
According to Joe Alfrey, CEO of Sencentric, the goal when developing SimpleSENCE was simple.
“We wanted to create a water leak and freeze detector that had all the best features of the leading devices on the market without any of the shortcomings,” he said. “With Wi-Fi operation, longer battery life, and enhanced ergonomic design, we have accomplished our objective. And we’ve given consumers a product in which they can have complete confidence, to help them avoid the devastating damage that an undetected water leak can cause.”
