This leak detection technology doesn't just identify where leaks are happening, it takes action for you. Water Hero helps you prevent water damage in your home. Combining detection with automatic shut-off technology and data collection, the system minimizes waste too.

The smart home technology has a shut-off motor that, when it identifies a leak, can turn the water off at the main valve. The motor and flow sensor are easily installed with existing plumbing without extravagant extra costs. This affordable option essentially lets you control your home's water flow with your smartphone. You will be notified of any issues via text message as the cloud-based system is synced to your mobile device. The leak detection technology is also a huge money saver.
