What is a Flood Detection System?
A flood detection system is a type of alarm system in Toronto that is used to identify the presence of water where it is not supposed to be. When flooding and leaks occur, sophisticated flood detection systems are designed to notify property owners and monitoring stations of the situation at hand. Flood detection systems can provide peace of mind for property owners and help mitigate the damage and costs associated with flooding.
Here’s what you need to know about adding flood detection to your alarm and security systems in Toronto.
Where to Install Flood Sensors?
Flood sensors should be installed wherever water damage occurs, especially water-dependent appliances, including washing machines, hot water heaters, dishwashers, supply lines, automatic ice makers, and toilets that may fail or leak.
Home Automation & Flood Detection
When there is a leak, flood detection is integrated with home automation systems to prevent flooding or water damage from going too far. An automatic shut-off valve is installed at the apex of your plumbing system when your flood monitoring system detects leaks or flooding within your home, turning off the main water supply immediately. This home automation enabled by your flood detection system prevents extensive water damage to your property. Your integrated flood detection system will also send alerts to your mobile device that there is a leak on your property, promptly informing you of the incident and enabling you to take the appropriate action, even when you’re away.
