There are a lot of reasons to take on a renovation. It may be a necessity to repair damages, increase accessibility or expand your living space. Or it might just be time to change things up and improve your esthetic. Whatever the reason for your renovation, you will surely want to protect your investment when the work is done.
Smart Home Security in Edmonton provides several options that can help limit damages and safeguard your home from threats such as flood, freeze, and fire.
Flood & Leak Detection
It’s a great feeling walking through your front door at the end of a long day. Dropping your bags, kicking off your shoes and getting ready to settle in for a cozy, relaxing night. Nothing derails that perfect evening and creates panic quite like finding water in your home where it shouldn’t be. Whether the water is coming through a burst pipe, a backed-up sump, or a haywire appliance, it can lead to thousands of dollars in damage and even more frustration.
Flood sensors can be placed anywhere in your home where the risk of flooding can occur. Whether from a washing machine, toilet, burst pipe, or outside source, these sensors can prove incredibly valuable at detecting water where it should not be. Not only can flood sensors provide early warning and help limit damages, when they are paired with a Smart Water Valve. They can also stop water flow immediately to further reduce damages.
Smart Water Valve + Meter
If you are in the habit of turning off the water when you leave home for a few days, you have probably found yourself wondering more than once, if you remembered to do it before leaving that day. With the Smart Water Valve, you can turn the water on and off with the touch of a button using your TELSCO Connect App. You can also have the shut-off trigger automatically if a flood sensor is triggered by the presence of water.
With the Smart Water Meter, an additional layer of protection is offered. Visit the Blog to learn more.
Sump Sensors generate an alarm when the water level in your sump rises to a level that will trigger the float sensor. The alarm could indicate that our sump pump is not working at all. It can also mean it is unable to pump out water as quickly as it is coming in. The device is triggered before the water has left the sump. So, you have a head start to stop the flooding before it starts.
Low Temperature Sensor
If you have ever had your furnace stop working in the middle of an Alberta winter, you know it does not take long for things to get dangerously chilly. A low-temperature sensor provides an early warning of trouble and offers a chance to intervene before damage occurs. These sensors can be purchased with a fixed or customizable set point for the alarm trigger.
Monitored Smoke Detectors
It may seem redundant to add smoke detectors as part of your security solution. You likely already have smoke detectors in your home. Although your existing smoke detectors may provide an alarm warning if you are home, they are unable to prompt an emergency response when your home is empty. With smoke monitored detectors from TELSCO, an alarm signal is sent to our monitoring centre when smoke is detected. Operators will make a call to your home, and if there is no answer, the fire department will be dispatched. Whether you are at work, on vacation, or in the home but unable to call for help, help is on the way.
