OREANDA-NEWS. The USD 79 sensor can alert homeowners to water leaks, mold, and freezing pipes quickly, whether you’re at home or on the go.

You lock up the house, hop in the car and head out for the day and then that sinking feeling hits you. Did I leave the water running?

You're not always confident that you turned the faucet off before you left. The Honeywell Lyric Wi-Fi Water Leak and Freeze Detector can help you know if your home has a water situation happening.  

According to the American Insurance Association and Insurance Services Office, damage caused by water, such as from a burst pipe or faulty appliance, can result in thousands of dollars of unanticipated repairs. In fact, water-related property damage exceeds $11 billion annually, with insurance claims averaging more than $7,000 per incident. Honeywell believes that your money could be better spent elsewhere – think vacation! – rather than cleaning up after leaky plumbing. 

Place the Lyric Detector nearly anywhere in your home and it gives updates on humidity in the air and temperature and provides alerts if water is sensed by the four-foot cable or the contacts on the detector itself. If there’s a problem, Lyric will tell you with an audible siren and an alert in the Lyric app. With push notifications, homeowners can set up an inner circle (from neighbors to friends and family) who also can also be notified when water is sensed.
