News of 2GIG water detector leaks...

2GIG, locally distributed by QSS, has unveiled a dual source water leak detector designed to be located under a water source that sends notifications to a homeowner’s smartphone or security panel if water is detected.

“The Water Leak Detector is a notification sensor, designed to give homeowners important information in advance of events,” said Robert Wong of Nortek Security & Control.

“Water damage is the number one residential insurance claim and this new sensor notifies homeowners in the first stages of a leak, allowing them to react quickly to resolve the problem.”

Transmitting wirelessly at 345MHz and compatible with 2GIG and Honeywell systems, installation of the device requires no tools. The Water Leak Detector is part of the new 2GIG Notification Sensors line, which adds multiple touch points to the 2GIG system and allows dealers to personalize security system features, improving customer satisfaction and retention.

The 2GIG sensor line includes the Stove & Grill Guard, the first stove and grill sensor that sends a customizable notification to a homeowner’s smartphone or control panel when a grill or stove knob is turned from the off position.

“2GIG notification sensors provide timely warnings with an unparalleled level of customized notifications for end-users, which is changing how homeowners protect and manage their homes,” Wong said.
