Alert Labs recently released new technology to help prevent water damage from clogged air handler drain lines. The first of its kind, the cellular-based Float Switch Alert system sends alerts to contractors’ phones when the float switch is tripped or when water is detected in the drain pan. The alerts help prevent water or mold damage in homes and reduce service costs for contractors.
The alerts help contractors save time onsite and make truck rolls more efficient. By knowing what is wrong with the air conditioning unit before sending a technician, contractors can dispatch the right tech, the first time. Homeowners save money by avoiding costly water damage repairs and can avoid A/C breakdowns. They also enjoy shorter A/C downtime because diagnosing problems is faster.
The Float Switch Alert system works by combining the Float Switch cable, Floodie flood sensor and Sentree A/C monitoring system from Alert Labs. As the system is cellular-based, contractors never have to connect to homeowner Wi-Fi networks.
Sentree is a cellular-based sensor that allows contractors to remotely monitor air conditioning systems from anywhere in the world. Sentree shows real-time, live gauge information for pressures, temperatures and current. It also identifies unusual activity and helps contractors do proactive maintenance and repairs, keeping the A/C units running at peak efficiency. Sentree brings peace of mind to homeowners that their HVAC contractor will take care of their air conditioning needs.
Floodie is a contractor-grade water leak detector that is placed in areas at risk for leaks and floods. It sends alerts within seconds of detecting water and temperature changes.
