LAS VEGAS, Jan. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- leakSMART, the leading home water protection system, is revolutionizing the definition of the smart home. With leakSMART (www.getleaksmart.com), every home can be connected. According to NextMarket Insights, only 1.5 million households in the U.S. have a smart home - and while the connected home is a leading topic at CES - many homeowners have not yet embraced (or even installed) a smart device in their homes.
The leakSMART system stops water leaks automatically and is the only solution in the marketplace that not only detects leaks, but also automatically shuts off the home's water in less than five seconds. Additionally, homeowners can receive notifications and alerts on their smart device via the leakSMART app - and remotely manage and monitor their home's water at any time and from anywhere.
According to the Insurance Information Institute, the average homeowner is actually 3.5 times more likely to experience water damage than theft in their home, and water damage ranks as the second most common home insurance claim. "leakSMART stops water leaks automatically," says Waxman. "It is the first of its kind in the market. leakSMART will save the average homeowner thousands of dollars and hours of cleaning up a water-logged house."
The leakSMART system includes a patented, automatic water shut-off valve, wireless and waterproof leak detection sensors, a system hub, and a system app. leakSMART can be integrated with many of the leading smart home providers, including SmartThings and OpenHome; it is Zigbee HA 1.2 certified. leakSMART is also one of the charter members of the Thread Group Alliance.
