Building on the momentum of its Roost Smart Battery, and the recently introduced Roost Smart Smoke Alarms, the company is growing its affordable Wi-Fi-enabled product line beyond smart fire and smoke safety devices with the Roost Smart Water Leak and Freeze Detector. Roost now offers a comprehensive smart home platform built around a unique set of connected sensors and its smartphone app, to increase home safety via the transmission of up-to-the-minute alerts. With the Roost Smart Water Leak and Freeze Detector, the company provides the ability to manage common water leak and frozen pipe issues.
According to Water Damage Defense, more than 37 percent of U.S. homeowners claim to have experienced a water damage loss, and more than 14,000 consumers experience a water emergency at home or work every single day.
“As a leader in smart home technology, we strive to create innovative solutions that solve real world problems and enhance consumers’ lives by improving home safety. With the new Roost Smart Water Leak and Freeze Detector, we are expanding our smart home product offering to help mitigate the risk of water leaks and freeze damage in homes and apartments,” said Roel Peeters, Roost CEO and co-founder. “Especially timely for the cold winter months, the Roost Smart Water Leak and Freeze Detector provides a best-of-breed solution, at an affordable price point, that delivers critical smartphone alerts, to help owners take faster action and mitigate the nightmare of costly home repair work.”
The Roost Smart Water Leak and Freeze Detector incorporates advanced sensors that diagnose and alert consumers to four major home emergencies through their smartphone, including water damage due to leaks from broken pipes, appliances, and basement leaks; frozen pipe water damage; mold and mildew damage caused by high humidity conditions; and inefficient energy use due to abnormal home indoor temperature, caused by problems with heating and cooling systems, power, or gaps in home seals or windows to the outside.
The Roost Smart Water Leak and Freeze Detector is designed for houses and apartments as well as secondary or vacation properties. Differentiating itself from existing home water leak detectors on the market, the Roost Smart Water Leak and Freeze Detector does not require a hub, can be installed in less than five minutes, and can be done without the need for professional installation. The Roost Smart Water Leak and Freeze Detector is battery operated, so consumers can put it in places that do not have a power outlet nearby. It is powered by four AAA batteries to deliver more than three years of battery life while leveraging a home’s Wi-Fi system.
The Roost Smart Water Leak and Freeze Detector is now available for preorder for $49.99 at GetRoost.com and has an estimated shipping date of February 2017.
