Protecting Your Property

Your home is one of your biggest assets. Why not spend a little to protect it from certain disasters that are easily preventable. There are several SMART monitoring devices that can aid you in preventing huge disasters, and save you tens of thousands of dollars.

Water Sensor: This little sensor can be placed inside the sump pit or along the floor to detect water rising in the pit or water on a basement floor. An alert will be sent to your phone, tablet or computer via SMS or email. You will know instantly of any problems, and be able to address them immediately which will reduce your costs of fixing the issue.

Propane Sensor: Here is a great sensor! If your house or cottage or business is heated by propane, you never have to worry about running out of propane again. We all know that running out of heat in the middle of winter can cause our pipes to burst and create a huge mess to clean up, along with a massive renovation bill. Give yourself peace of mind with a monitoring device that will tell you exactly how much propane is left in your tanks, in real-time.

Thermostat: A SMART thermostat is a fantastic way to keep track of the heating and cooling of a building. Not only can you set it and forget it, but it can send you updates and comparisons of how much fuel you are using and how long the furnace or air conditioner is working to reach the desired temperature. It will also alert you to extreme temperature drops in the building, indicating a potential problem with the furnace.

These are three of our top products available for protecting your asset. The minimal cost is certainly worth any potential disaster that could arise from not monitoring your property. Add to the fact that you can check these devices on your phone, means you can be anywhere in the world and be protecting your home.

Frozen Pipes? We can help!

Let iHomeCtrl help prevent frozen pipes this winter at your home or cottage with our ZWave Mulitsensor.  By installing this sensor, we can help you monitor your crawl space pipes, and keep the area warmed.  Since crawlspaces are not usually insulated as well as your house or cottage, the sensor is installed directly in the crawlspace, along with a smart plug, that is controlled by the Vera Automation Controller. A heater fan is plugged into the smart plug, which we then program the system to automatically turn the heater on, warm up the space, and turn off when the desired temperature is reached.  You don’t need to do anything, and you don’t need to be near the devises at all.  Alerts and notifications are sent automatically to your phone, computer or tablet.  You can monitor the situation remotely to ensure all is well in your home.  No more frozen pipes!

Now that’s a SMART Home!
