Flood and water sensors used to be standard protection devices in stores and large office buildings. They rarely were seen in homes. But thanks to wireless technology, flood and water sensors can be a regular part of your home security system.
The small sensors can be placed in flood prone areas, with the transmitter housed in a box mounted on a wall. It's so easy to install and activate a flood sensor, you can do it yourself. Battery power means no hassle with wires or worry about electrical cords in areas prone to flooding.
These sensors also can hook up to your main security system or work in tandem with a security camera that can zero in on the water damage and videotape it for insurance coverage.
