Spring is almost here, but there are still several more weeks of winter weather ahead of us. With that in mind, it’s time to consider how many more frozen pipe scares and flood risks may be around the corner – and how integrating home control technology with your security systems may be able to help you defend your home against those threats. Here are some examples.
Mobile Temperature Alerts
An upgraded home control package can include a temperature sensor that can be integrated with your security system. That way, you can receive a mobile alert to your phone when the sensor recognizes perilously low temperatures in your home. With this knowledge, you’ll be able to add heat to the room your pipes are connected to, whether it’s via a space heater or your home’s central heating system. This can raise the temperature of the water inside your pipes to prevent dangerous freezing and ward off the damage that burst pipes can cause a home. F.E. Moran Security can connect your temperature sensor when you request an upgrade to your existing system – or for new customers, integrate it at your first installation.

High Water Alerts
Burst pipes are not the only environmentally-triggered hazards an upgraded home control system can fend off. The system can also include a water sensor, which will be triggered by the presence of rising water in the home – otherwise known as flooding. If you have ever experienced a flooded home before, you know there are very few conditions more damaging, and very few conditions more expensive to repair. Flooding can ruin carpets, break appliances, destroy valuables and create dangerous mold conditions in the home. With a water sensor integrated into your home control system, it can be possible to avoid the devastating consequences of flooding. You’ll receive a mobile alert the moment the high water is detected and can respond to the situation quickly.
Automatic Water Shutoff
Speaking of responding to a flood, an automatic water shutoff tool can also be integrated into your home control system. Rather than responding to flooding caused by rain, this tool can be used to respond to a leaky faucet, broken water valve or other plumbing defection. Using your automatic water shutoff is quicker and easier than shutting off the water manually – no more standing outside in the cold, flashlight in hand, attempting to find the right mechanisms to shut off the water. Instead, it’s done with a tap of your mobile app.
