There are several smart home products on the market that can integrate with your phone or Amazon’s Alexa. These products serve a range of purposes, from detecting water leaks to maintaining the perfect temperature in your home. The individual product can detect when something is wrong, and it can send you a text message or notification before any real damage occurs. This can potentially save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars in repairs or replacements.
Smart home products are a good investment. There are products that can detect water leaks and freezes within your pipes. Air purifiers and allergen detectors can help the air within your home become cleaner and healthier. Smart home thermostats and a water heater shut off valve are also good investments.
Water Leak and Freeze Detectors
Are you looking for something that protects your home from water and flood damage, helping you save thousands of dollars in repairs? A water leak and freeze detector can help alert you at the first sign of a leak. This detector will alert your Smartphone with a text message if a freeze or water leak is detected. The detector also connects to standard home Wi-Fi, so the device needs no separate base station or hub. It is used to help detect temperatures that can freeze your pipes or humidity that could potentially damage valuables. The sensors can log and record your temperature and humidity of the area that you are monitoring. With many detectors, the battery can last up to three years. There is a water sensing cable included. This detects water with sensors on base of unit or expand coverage with an included water cable sensor. You can also set up the detector to notify a family member, friend, or neighbor when it sends an alert. Even when you are away you can trust someone to take care of the issue.
Air Purifiers and Allergen Detectors
Another smart home product is air purifiers and allergen detectors. This advanced technology automatically purifies to remove allergens, gases, and pollutants from your home’s air. It automatically detects and removes indoor pollution because air pollution is just not a problem outside. In fact, the average home can be up to five times more polluted than outside air. The purifiers and detectors are constantly monitoring and reacting to indoor air quality; they often then report to the app. Many of them often come with warranties. Some purifiers can struggle to trap as much, which releases potentially harmful ultrafine particles back into the room.
Smart Home Thermostats
A smart home thermostat is the right fit if you want a product that helps maintain the temperature within your home. It gets to work making sure that it provides warmth on a cold winter’s day; it also keeps your home cool on a hot summer’s day or night.

Your smart home knows exactly what the heating and cooling requirements are in your home; it knows if you are away on vacation or how many people are in your home. The intelligent temperature control helps you save money on energy costs.
Water Heater Shut Off Valve
