Campbell, California (U.S.A.) – July, 2017 — Zircon® Corporation, maker of the original electronic stud finder, announced today the launch of the Leak Alert™ WiFi, the company’s first Wi-Fi enabled smart water detector. The latest addition to their popular Leak Alert™ water detector line, Zircon® continues to strengthen its mission of providing essential, affordable, high-tech tools for homeowners and professionals worldwide.
Once enabled, the Leak Alert™ WiFi utilizes Wi-Fi connectivity to provide email, audio, and visual alerts to homeowners, renters, business owners and property managers of a water leak as soon as one is detected. At home or away, owners of the Leak Alert™ WiFi can now be assured their home is protected and potentially save thousands of dollars in water damage and repairs.
Ingeniously engineered, the Leak Alert™ WiFi features Wi-Fi connectivity with no hub required. The self-contained, battery powered unit can send notifications to up to 5 email addresses as soon as the device is triggered. Owners are alerted when a leak is detected, without having to be physically present at the detector’s location.
The Leak Alert™ WiFi can be placed in multiple locations throughout the home or property. Place the detector near sinks, refrigerators, washing machines, sump pumps, aquariums, and in basements. When a leak is detected, the detector will send alert(s) via Wi-Fi to notify all configured email addresses, emit a 105 dB alarm, and flash two bright red LED lights.
All Zircon® Leak Alert™ water detectors are housed in durable plastic cases designed to float. In the unfortunate incident flooding occurs, the Leak Alert™ WiFi can float with the alarm continuing to sound for the life of the battery.
