Before Christmas we had a flood. Not quite like that, though.
This was the cause:
We had some damage to kitchen cabinets as a result, and the floor took a while to dry out. The most annoying thing about this was, it would have been impossible in a smart home.
Aside: “You don’t have a smart home?!” Not quite yet! It’s in progress 😃
If I had one of these tiny water sensors behind that kitchen cupboard, I would have been alerted instantly to my phone. Instead, the water was trickling away, probably for days, and I didn’t even notice. Not until the wood started swelling 😟
They’re great for in a utility room, garage, basement, kitchen or anywhere you’d want to know about possible water ingress. Being notified of a water leak before it does any damage is a great idea – you just need to set it up before it has already happened…
