How To Choose The Best Flood Sensor For Valentines - Last Minute Gift Idea!

What better way to say, "I care" this Valentine's Day than with the smartest flood sensor in Canada? We're talking about that white square of water detection technical mastery: your buddy, Floodie.

 

but what makes a flood sensor like floodie special?

 

Not all water sensors are created equal. For example, you have to plug a Honeywell Lyric Sensor or the D-Link Wifi Water Sensor DCH-S160 into an electrical outlet. The Samsung SmartThings Water Leak Sensor does not need to be plugged in but the SmartThings hub does. All of this means that when the power from the electric outlet stops, so does your flood protection. On the other hand, Floodie uses a cellular connection courtesy of its friend, Flowie, so it keeps working in a power outage. Floodie also comes with 2 AA batteries and doesn't need to be placed near an electrical outlet. So, it's more portable and reliable. He even has an extension cable to create leak detection zones. And you don't have to worry about the batteries dying on you. They're good for two years at least. You also get low battery notifications on your phone. And in case your wondering about pipe freezing temperature alerts, Flowie's got that covered, too. 

  

nothing more romantic than waterproof

 

Rather than being the type of water alarm you throw out after its circuits are shorted from contacting water, Floodie is waterproof. It can be used again and again. Flood alerts on your phone mean you don't need to be within earshot to hear its audible flood alarm. If your washing machine leaks, your sump pump overflows or water heater tank leaks, you will know no matter where you are.

   

share the love and the flood alarms

 

You don't have to go it alone this Valentine's. Share the flood alert text messages and emails with others you know. The Dashboard and App allow you to assign delegates so they are in the loop. Like everything with Alert Labs, set up is easy,

 

Floodie flood contacts do not cause false flood alarms

  

sensitive to water but not too sensitive

 

No one likes the boy who cried wolf. That's why Floodie never gives false water alarms. The condensation that can form on basement floors doesn't trigger a flood alert because Floodie's flood contacts are just the right distance from the floor. 

 

short set up time means more you time

 

Check out how easy it is to install Floodie by watching a video of Chief Operations Officer Ruth Casselman setting it up.

 

Flowers, chocolate, a home-made card? Sure, those gifts are nice but this Valentine's Day is a great opportunity to do something less conventional but more practical for that special someone.
