Environmental sensors provide peace of mind

Many of us think of an alarm or security system as a way to catch an intruder or to prevent an intruder from gaining access to our property. In fact, there are many other aspects to a security system that should be considered.

WH Security offers environmental sensors to alert you to environmental situations that may can problems in your home. One type of environmental sensor is a freeze or low-temp sensor which will alert you when temperatures in your home drop below 42 degrees so that you can take action to prevent your water lines from freezing, bursting and causing water issues. A key indicator for choosing a low-temp sensor is how much area will it cover. There are many low-temp sensors out there and some have limitations of monitored square footage, meaning you may need more than one device in your home or building to adequately protect it. 

Another type of environmental sensor is a water sensor, which comes in many forms of sensor configuration. Two types of water sensors can be installed, one in the sump pump pit for high ground water detection due to pump failure and one on the surface of the floor near a drain or appliance that contains water. This type can be useful for a variety of different failures. When water is detected by these sensors, we will alert you (or someone you designate) that the detector has sensed a condition.

Living in the great state of Minnesota, temperatures can vary greatly, potentially causing issues for those trying to keep things warm. Many people have a lake cabin and if you are not there regularly it is nice to have an alarm system monitoring the property for you. Another positive aspect of environmental sensors is that they are monitored 24 hours a day with or without arming the alarm system.
