Know when you have a water leak
As part of the STANLEY Security Smart Home system, you can integrate a water leak sensor and a remote water shut-off valve. The wireless water sensor we use is the Nowa 360, a trustworthy Canadian company, which comes with five slim, corrosion-proof sensor pucks you can place strategically around your house in any room with a water source: bathroom, kitchen, laundry room, etc.
Water damage defense is Nowa’s only business!
A water leak detection system never sleeps
Whether you’re at home or away, Nowa is working to detect water. At the first sign of water contacting the sensor, the sensor signals the Nowa control panel, and the valve is shut off. The whole sequence takes about ten seconds. Much, much faster than you could likely act to detect a leak turn the water off.
Imagine what can happen while you’re away! Nowa thought of that too. When used with an optional motion sensor, Nowa can shut your water off while you’re out, automatically. When you return, it will turn the water back on as well. No codes to enter, buttons to push or dongles to track.
Power failure? Nowa’s got you covered. Each Nowa system comes with a rechargeable battery pack to allow for detection and shut-off when the power is out.
Cold outside? Did someone leave a window open? Nowa’s sensors can also be set up to detect temperatures of 5° C. Frozen pipes are a major concern. Get notified before you have a problem!
When a detection occurs, you’ll be immediately notified at the control panel or on your iOS or Android smartphone. A brief SMS Alert and/or emails to multiple parties will outline the reason for notification and, precisely when and where detected. You don’t have to teach the Nowa system anything. It’s plug-and-play.
Nowa is built on a Security platform. That means it’s safe, encrypted and flexible. It will fit into your site plan and budget. Whether a single-family dwelling, multi-suite residential or industrial operation, new build or existing, Nowa will work to provide 24/7/365 defence against water ruining your property and your day. If you’ve had a recent water damage experience, your insurer may require a system like Nowa to be installed to prevent repeat occurrences.
If you don’t want to experience water damage, give STANLEY a call! Coming home to a flooded house due to burst pipes is probably the biggest post-vacation-buzz-kill you can imagine, especially given the average $43K price tag for a residential flood.
A Nowa installation by STANLEY is great for your peace of mind and your pocketbook
Insurers are waging battle against water damage claims. The rise in both frequency and cost are unsustainable for everyone. For reasonably close to your deductible amount, you could be in a much better position to deal with better premiums and coverage, lower relative deductible amounts and a wider range of insurers to choose from. Some insurers may even offer premium discounts for the installation of Nowa. Consider that water damage claims of insurers exceed those for fire and theft combined!
Perhaps more importantly, consider that your property may not be habitable in the wake of water damage; replacement housing, the loss of irreplaceable personal items, the upset of just trying to get back to normal. If you work from home, add that to the burden. The worst imaginable is a refusal by your insurer to cover the loss. If you’ve had previous water damage claim(s), this is a distinct possibility.
