You just wanted to do the washing quickly and then this happens: the basement is suddenly flooded. A scenario that happens quite frequently – for washing machine hoses seem to like breaking. Those who worry about water damage at home can soon relax: in late July, eQ-3 will be launching the long-awaited Homematic IP Water Sensor on the market. This smart device detects even the smallest of leaks reliably. With battery operation and spring-mounted measuring probes, the device can be used flexibly in any location within the home – perfect for basements, kitchens and bathrooms. If the water level reaches more than 1.5 millimetres, the sensor immediately sends a notification to the homeowner’s smartphone. A loud alarm is also triggered via an integrated siren. This can be a real salvation in emergencies: after all, water damage is a widely underestimated danger that can prove extortionately expensive. With the water sensor, you can react quickly and keep the damage to a minimum.
Homematic IP Water Sensor coming in late July
This new smart device protects your home from water damage
A home set up to be technically intelligent should be both comfortable and secure, in all areas. The new water sensor helps optimise security levels within homes. Manipulation of the sensor is virtually impossible: an inbuilt tilt sensor detects unwanted movement immediately and reports it. For operation, the Homematic IP Access Point (in connection with the Homematic IP smartphone app), the Homematic Central Control Unit CCU2 or an appropriate partner solution is required. The wireless technology means the water sensor can easily be integrated into existing smart home systems without the need for specialist installation. Instead, the device can be trained easily in the Homematic IP app and can also be configured there. Make your home safe and protect it against damage from water and humidity in just a few seconds!
