leakSMART® Makes Big Impression on WE tv’s The Lifestyle List
(Bedford Heights, Ohio) Mar. 02, 2016 – leakSMART®, as seen on WE tv, is today’s leading smart home water leak detection and prevention solution – and a favorite of The Lifestyle List’s host, Michelle Yarn.
The TV segment illustrated how the leakSMART® Valve and wireless and waterproof leakSMART® Sensors – alongside a compatible smart home system hub and app – work together to eliminate the threat of preventable water damage in the home by automatically shutting off the home’s water supply as soon as a leak is detected.
Yarn also mentioned various applications for leakSMART®, as well as strategic sensor placement. She noted that homeowners should place leakSMART® Sensors throughout the home near plumbing fixtures, pipes and appliances such as a washing machine, dishwasher and hot water tank. Whenever these Sensors detect a water leak, the sensors alarm, and the leakSMART® Valve is notified – immediately shutting off the home’s water supply to eliminate the threat of water damage. Simultaneously, the homeowner receives smart device app notifications and alerts – all in less than five seconds.
Perhaps most importantly, during the on-air product spotlight, Yarn highlighted the overwhelming need for consumers to protect their homes from preventable water damage. She noted that according to the Insurance Information Institute, water damage from leaking appliances or burst water lines is the second most common insurance claim and the average home insurance claim from water damage totals nearly $8,000.
JaNette Barnett, vice president of marketing and sales for Waxman Consumer Products Group – leakSMART®’s parent company – commented about the system’s recent television feature.
“As an award-winning solution in today’s connected home market, leakSMART® is used to being recognized among industry insiders,” Barnett said. “But to have a home and style maven like Michelle Yarn endorse leakSMART® is truly flattering.”
