What is Alert?

It syncs a water and freeze detector to your smartphone and notifies you if there’s a problem at your home. If it detects a water leak or a risk of freezing, you’ll receive alerts on your smartphone, so you can react quickly and limit any water damage. This prevention program is innovative, simple, reassuring and designed for you.

Additional detectors are available for purchase through the app, at a discounted price!
