The best Christmas gifts are the ones that keep on giving. The continual peace of mind that comes with knowing that your home or the home of a loved one is being monitored 24/7 for pipe freezing temperatures, power outages, leaks and floods makes Flowie and Floodie the ideal present this Christmas for parents as well as landlords and snowbirds.
Over this past year, we have seen our leak and flood protection system save customers thousands of dollars in reduced water bills and averted floods, leaks, and water damage. Most recently, a customer told us we helped them avoid major water damage in their laundry room. They were in a meeting one morning and got a flood alert on their phone. They were then able to get home and prevent hundreds of dollars in damages. Instant alerts mean avoiding the heartache of ruined property.
Another customer told us about a trip she took to Florida. When a recent cold snap hit her Winnipeg home, she became worried that her home's pipes would freeze and burst because she wasn't sure the heat was on at her house. A quick look at the Alert Labs App installed on her phone assured her that her basement was a warm 19 degrees Celsius and that she could go back to thinking about more important temperatures like that of the hot tub. A Flowie water sensor doesn't just monitor water use and leaks, it keeps track of temperature and humidity, too.
We have heard lots of stories from property managers and landlords about tenants who either neglect to report a leaky toilet or just don't know there is a problem. One of our landlord customers saved more than $4,000 after installing Flowie at two rental properties. Within a week, Flowie alerted him to unusual water use caused by a faulty stopper in two toilets. By creating a typical water use profile, Flowie identifies water use that deviates from your profile. This Christmas, give the gift of lower water bills and insight into water usage to a landlord or property manager you know.
Yes! If your parents are going away this winter or if you travel often, invite a friend, family member or neighbour to view and receive alerts about the property. And you can remove these contacts at any time. This sharing feature is also a great way to check up on your parents' home if they live out of town. The Alert Labs' App and Dashboard can provide you peace of mind this holiday season.

Amid a wave of sump pumps, backwater valves and other methods designed to keep home basements dry comes a new, simple way to mitigate flood risk – an e-sensor.
George Tsintzouras, CEO and co-founder of Canadian water tech company Alert Labs, became interested in creating such devices based on a bad experience he remembers as a property owner.
