Vital Protection During the Hurricane Season

We often hear the term "environmental monitoring" regarding the security of your home or business.  Many times it's associated with detecting unsafe levels of carbon monoxide.

There are several other types of environmental monitoring, many of which we encounter in in NH, MA and other New England states.  Since we're about halfway through the hurricane season, we thought we'd talk about water detection today--basement flooding is all too familiar.  Other environmental hazards include: propane & natural gas,  high/low temperature and power loss.

One piece of equipment used in the detection of water, many times found in basements, is a water sensor--one brand is a Water Bug.  But these devices are certainly not limited to basements.  Other areas of application are computer rooms, rooms where important documents are stored and areas with sprinkler systems.

These water sensors are designed to provide the same peace of mind that a smoke detector does.  They will create an alarm notification indicating that water has been detected before it becomes too late and allows you to catch things at the outset of any leakage.

The base unit of the water sensor can monitor many probes as much as several hundred feet away, for example.  The sensor probes have contacts on them and an alarm is not triggered until water spreads from one contact to the other--condensation alone will not cause an alarm.

This equipment is pertinent to both residential customers as well as commercial clients.  Virtually everyone can identify with protecting a basement, a storage room with valuables, an area of electronics, etc.
