LeakSmart Introduces SensXtend: An Innovative Kit to Take Leak Detection to the Next Level

The SensXtend by LeakSmart Extension Kit with Water Sensor add customization and flexibility to detect leaks in tight, hard-to-reach places

BEDFORD HEIGHTS, Ohio, May 5, 2020

LeakSmart, the world’s most intelligent leak and flood protection system, pushes leak detection further by introducing its SensXtend by LeakSmart Extension Kit with Water Sensor. This innovative extension kit combines the new SensXtend Dock, Rope Sensor and Extension Cable accessories with a LeakSmart Water Sensor to provide homeowners using LeakSmart systems with additional protection, customization and flexibility in detecting leaks in especially hard-to-reach areas of the home.

The SensXtend by LeakSmart Extension Kit with Water Sensor will extend protection to detect leaks in tight, difficult-to-navigate spots such as under refrigerators, dishwashers, washing machines or water heaters. The SensXtend by LeakSmart Extension Kit with Water Sensor comes with a variety of hardware that allows for creative placement options, increased signal strength and easier access for sensor battery changes.

more ground for optimum protection, the Rope Sensor detects water along its entire four-foot length. The patented SensXtend dock with Tri-Port design triples the coverage by allowing the connection of three separate rope sensor lines that, when combined, provide additional leak protection for up to 300 square feet.

SensXtend by LeakSmart is compatible with all products in the LeakSmart leak detection system family, including the Snap by LeakSmart and Protect by LeakSmart. When the Sensor, Sensor Dock and Rope Sensor work together to detect a leak, the LeakSmart system is notified to shut off the home’s main water supply in five seconds or less while immediately notifying homeowners via smartphone. The rope sensor is made of a PVC material that can be wiped dry with a cloth and used again immediately for maximum coverage and less downtime. LeakSmart is also backed with True 24/7™ protection, LeakSmart’s proprietary wireless network and battery backup that continues working even when power and Wi-Fi are down.

“The advantage for all of LeakSmart’s leak detection sensors is that they can be used again and again even after detecting a leak,” said Larry Waxman, CEO of Waxman Industries Inc., parent company of LeakSmart. “The SensXtend by LeakSmart accessories advance this benefit by providing more versatility in installation while covering more ground, resulting in optimum protection from water leaks and increased peace of mind for homeowners.”

The SensXtend by LeakSmart Extension Kit with Water Sensor will come with one LeakSmart Sensor, patented Sensor Dock, four-foot Rope Sensor and four-foot Extension Cable for added reach. The kit will be available for sale in May for an MSRP of $119 through wholesalers and online at leaksmart.com.

In addition to SensXtend, LeakSmart offers a suite of whole home water protection smart home water valves, hubs, sensors, accessories and appliance kits that provide homeowners with complete yet customizable leak protection. When installed by a LeakSmart Pro, homeowners are protected by LeakSmart’s industry-leading, five-year manufacturer’s warranty.
