Finding the perfect gift doesn’t have to be complicated, expensive, or hard to find. Start first by thinking about what this person likes to do and what tools can help them. The icing on the top? Something that has the potential to be used year-round so you both get the most bang for your buck. If you have a weekend warrior, honey-do expert, new home owner, project extraordinaire or tool enthusiast on your list, you’ve come to the right place. Give a gift that is easy on your wallet and just as easy to use.
A detector anyone can benefit from, especially when away from home during the holidays, on vacation, or at work, is the Zircon Leak Alert WiFi smart water detector. Similar to a smoke detector, this battery-operated device works 24/7 to provide email, visual and audio alerts the moment the device comes in contact with water. Requiring only Wi-Fi connectivity and one included lithium battery, there are no monthly subscription fees or additional hardware to purchase or maintain. The Leak Alert WiFi detector even floats in the event of a flood. A device that can save potentially thousands of dollars in damage and repairs is a smart gift that keeps giving and giving. At a suggested retail of $44.99, the Leak Alert WiFi is an invaluable tool no home should be without.

Both lights and audio on the receiver indicate the circuit location. For easy storage, the receiver and transmitter handily snap together.
