Water leaks are the #1 cause of property damage in the home.
Escape of water in the home is the number one cause of damage to property worldwide. You are 10 times more likely to have a leak in your home rather than a fire.
Water damage from burst pipes, drips and leaky appliances costs homeowners and insurers billions of Euro every year.
Like many home security problems, it happens quickly, unexpectedly and out of sight. From collapsed ceilings to mold-blackened walls, water damage is disruptive, destructive and often dangerous. Is there a solution?
Meet Flowsafe: The Smart Water Security System that protects your home.
Smartzone designed and developed the new Flowsafe Smart Water Valve in partnership with Alarm.com.
The Smartzone Flowsafe Smart Water Valve uses advanced connected sensor technology to detect leaks and shut them off automatically.
As part of our Whole-Home Water Management Solution Flowsafe can respond intelligently to drips and leaks in different areas of your home.
Flowsafe helps you use water more efficiently with monitoring and insights.
Whole Home Water Security. Smarter – Safer – Simpler
Flowsafe by Smartzone uses patented sensor technology to deliver a market leading capability that can detect leaks down to 0.01 litre’s per hour. Nothing else comes close.
When a leak occurs suddenly your sole priority is to shut the water off. If you’re home and spot the leak, and can find the mains water supply in time you may avert disaster.
If you are not home, you’re home is flooded resulting in catastrophic damage and disruption.
Our Flowsafe Smart Water Valve changes everything. Installed at your home’s main water supply, its high-tech internal sensors quickly detect leaks (big and small) and alerts your Smartzone home security system.
The system immediately activates the Flowsafe’s on-board actuator, closing the valve and shutting off your water immediately to minimize damage.
By the time a Smartzone leak alert reaches your phone, the water has been turned off saving you thousands of euro in water damage losses.
Hidden Pipework – the dreaded slow leak
A typical Home’s pipework is often hidden in walls.
This makes leaks difficult to spot until its too late. The Smartzone Flowsafe’s integrated water management technology and analytics spots problems that you can’t.
The Smartzone Water range of accessories includes wireless leak sensors to another layer of security to your system. These leak sensors are placed behind domestic appliances, sinks, water cylinders, and in the bathroom and kitchen and can detect leaks locally.
Economic Water Loss – Bill Shock
Our Flowsafe Smart Water Valve also detects a range of other issues that cost you money.
Its smart meter will help you detect persistent leaks or running toilets that could cause water bills to skyrocket over time.
It can alert you to excessive water consumption at home or at a rental property.
It can even alert you to low water temperatures if your pipes are at risk of freezing in winter and instruct the heating system to come on to prevent pipes freezing.
When is a leak not a leak? Intelligent Responses, Easy Controls
Powered by the Smartzone Smart Home Security & Automation Technology, our Flowsafe Smart Water Valve responds intelligently when it matters.
Because Flowsafe is integrated with your Smartzone Smart Home System, it knows when you’re home or away and responds accordingly.
For example, if someone is taking a long shower and your system knows you’re home, you’ll get an alert but the water will stay on.
However, if you’re away and one of your toilets is constantly filling due to a faulty syphon, the water will shut off to help save up to 800 litres of wasted water per day.
It takes whole-home intelligence to know and respond correctly. Flowsafe also integrates with your security system so when you have armed away it can also turn off the mains water, turning it back on automatically when you return.
Why leave water on when you are out, just automate the settings and reduce the risk.
Using the Flowsafe Smart Water Valve couldn’t be simpler, you’ll find the controls right there in your Smartzone App—next to your security system, smart locks, smart thermostat, security camera feeds and everything else.
