Smart Home Products Make A Splash In The Basement
Today’s families have busy, active lifestyles. A Smart Home uses cutting-edge technology to make managing those hectic schedules much easier. Thanks to smartphones and laptops, a person can operate security systems, lighting, home appliances, and TVs from virtually any location, and this means a lot of benefits for homeowners. Smart products installed in the home provide comfort, increased security, energy efficiency, convenience, and best of all, they can save you money.
A perfect example of using a “smart home” product to keep more money in your pocket is the use of a sump pump alarm system. Most sump pump alarms only alert the homeowner after a problem occurs when the float switch is activated. The Flood Guard, however, is a new class of alarm system. Not only does Flood Guard provide audible and text alerts to an issue with your pump, but owners who subscribe to the 24-hour monitoring have the ability to login to their portal from their pc, tablet or cell phone and promptly respond to an alert from any location. Or, they can simply check on the status of their sump pump and water levels during a storm.
The sump pump is the heart of any good waterproofing system. However, it can malfunction for a number of reasons and cause your basement to flood. Just a few inches of water in your home could cost you thousands. In fact, according to floodsmart.gov, a flood in your home could cost anywhere from $10,000 up to $50,000, depending on the amount of water and the size of your space. An additional advantage of this smart home sump pump alarm is that it learns over the course of a few days what normal sump pump operation looks like, and can notify you of pump irregularities, potential flooding or pump failure. This means you can have the ultimate peace of mind that your smart home is safe, dry and secure.
