When it comes to home automation the cool stuff like vacuum robots and motorized doors get all the attention, but you shouldn’t forget about the increased safety and security home automation can offer.
There are many things that are bad for our homes. Being on fire is one that immediately comes to mind, but water damage can be just as devastating. While most people understand the importance of having a smoke detector to warn them of a fire, few people spare a thought for flooding.
Getting an early warning is important when it comes to water damage. The faster the flow can be shut off, the better the chances that the damage will not be catastrophic. These sensors all promise to warn you the moment something is wet that should be dry. Some of them will even do it when you aren’t home.
There are a lot of places where it’s logical to put a water sensor. The prime example would be at your water heater, but sinks, dishwashers, and washing machines also make a lot of sense.
I’ve put the water sensors I like the look of the most at the top of my list, but the rest are not ranked.
