LeakSmart—The World’s Most Intelligent Leak & Flood Protection System—Just Got Even Smarter

Detects leaks. Shuts off water in 5 seconds or less. No tools or cutting of pipes necessary when installing the new LeakSmart Snap. LeakSmart keeps working even when power or Wi-Fi is down. Check out LeakSmart at CEDIA booth #1400

BEDFORD HEIGHTS, OHIO (SEPT. 4, 2018) — Thousands of homeowners have prevented costly water damage to their homes by installing LeakSmart®, the world’s most intelligent and reliable leak and flood protection system for your home. Now installation has gotten a whole lot simpler and faster with the new LeakSmart Snap, a shut-off valve control that installs in seconds without any tools or the need to cut into the main water supply line. And homeowners can extend this protection even during power outages and downed Wi-Fi with the new LeakSmart Hub 3.0.

Innovation

LeakSmart is advanced leak and flood protection done right. Sophisticated technology, yet simple to install and maintain, LeakSmart Snap fits in any space, installs at any angle and on any type of valve. It programs itself to calibrate the torque required to turn off a home’s main water supply, making adjustments if necessary, and is strong enough to open even the toughest valve in a home.

Built-in Wi-Fi provides flexibility in the installation of the LeakSmart Hub. Place it anywhere within the home for optimal coverage and communication between LeakSmart devices. The latest Zigbee 3.0 protocol ensures the hub will continue working—sending emergency notifications through LeakSmart’s free smartphone application—even if Wi-Fi is down or the power is out.

Peace of Mind

Water damage can be catastrophic, often resulting in the loss of property and precious family mementos. LeakSmart is going to take care of this potential problem so homeowners don’t have to worry about it—ever. For true peace of mind, the newly enhanced LeakSmart Hub is always on, thanks to its built-in rechargeable battery, making it a smarter, more flexible and disaster-proof hardware device.

Whole Home Protection

Owning a home requires constant attention and forethought to avert major catastrophes, from plumbing and water heater leaks to issues caused by idle appliances and failed or aging HVAC systems. If a LeakSmart Sensor is placed nearby one of these trouble spots, it will send an immediate signal to the LeakSmart Hub if water is detected. The LeakSmart System will notify the homeowner through the LeakSmart App, SMS and email that a leak has occurred and at which sensor location the alert came from.

To keep your whole home protected from devastating water damage, simply pair with the LeakSmart Hub and turn your home into a Smart Home with 24/7 protection from unwanted leaks. LeakSmart is also compatible with Control4®, Nest®, Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. LeakSmart alerts you to turn off your HVAC if a leak is detected nearby when Nest is in Home/Away mode. And LeakSmart reminds you to turn off your main water valve remotely. Or get a heads up on the LeakSmart App when plunging temperatures threaten to freeze pipes, thanks to LeakSmart Sensors, or Nest’s room temperature and indoor humidity readings.
For protection you can trust, LeakSmart is also backed by a five-year warranty.

“LeakSmart is steadily building a reputation for detecting and stopping household leaks in less than five seconds,” said Larry Waxman, CEO of Waxman Industries, the parent company of LeakSmart. “Now installation is faster and simpler with the LeakSmart Snap, and homeowners can be assured of next level protection for their homes during power and Wi-Fi outages with the LeakSmart Hub.”
