Save yourself from expensive water damage with your Des Moines water sensor

Locate leaks with your monitored Des Moines water sensor before they become a problem

Water damage can happen when you least expect it. A cracked pipe or rusted water heater is only discovered by seeing a puddle of water. That can lead to considerable water damage, even more-so if a leak drains into your entire lower floors.

It is possible to find leaks before they cause any damage when you pair wireless Des Moines water sensors into your home security system. The discreet, monitored detector looks for pooling water and notifies you with a high-decibel siren when it locates a concern. Then it will ping your Vivint monitoring specialists so that they can survey the scene and contact emergency services if things get rough. Your water sensor will even send an emergency alert to your mobile device, so you can react to any water concerns when you're at work.

Where should you install your Des Moines water sensor?

Typically you want to put a water sensor in any place in the house where you may get abnormal water:

  • Behind toilets: Safeguard your bathroom floors from leaking toilet tanks or stuck-up toilets.

  • Below sinks: Catch clogs in the U-bend ahead of having to change your bathroom vanity.

  • Adjacent basement drains and sump pumps: Suffering a wet basement in Des Moines may add up to huge sums of money.

  • Nearby to water heaters: a Des Moines water sensor will notify you if the water heater is corroded or defective before it drops gallons of water in your home.

  • Behind major appliances: Washing machines, dishwashers, and refrigerators have the potential to leak water and rapidly ruin your floors!

How does a Des Moines water sensor work?

Your Vivint water sensor is a critical component of your Des Moines smart home. Here’s how it works:

  • Sensitive water detection: The advanced alarm alerts you and your Vivint monitoring team to any moving or rising water.

  • Temperature sensors for freezing weather: Vivint water sensors also detect falling temperatures to thwart water damage from cracked pipes.

  • Minimalist, wireless design: Just set them nearby any place a leak can originate -- no matter how cramped the place.

  • Phone alerts for quick action: Frozen pipes or intense storms have a penchant for occurring when you're not around. But don't stress. You'll get a notification whenever your water sensor discovers a problem. Or look on the Vivint App anytime to see their status.

  • Vivint monitoring provides an additional layer of protection: Your Vivint monitoring professional will also get notified of any water issues. No matter where you are, assistance will be moving your way!
