Smart home devices are ever-growing
in popularity, as more homes are outfitted
with wireless networks and homeowners and property owners have become
accustomed to sensors and software as
part of their everyday lives. According to
Simmons Research, upwards of 46% of

that provide ease of installation, provide
reliable service and technical support, and

A smart home device that can detect,
identify, and communicate a water leak
is an example of Zircon® Corporation’s
mission to provide essential and afford-
able high-tech tools. Zircon’s new Leak
Alert TM WiFi is the company’s first Wi-Fi
enabled smart water detector. It is battery
operated, wireless and fully automatic, so
no wiring or hub is required.
Each unit operates independently of
each other and can be individually named,
allowing for an infinite number of units to
be on guard simultaneously. Modular and
scalable, the entire Leak Alert TM WiFi system is made to be adaptable and flexible
to the specific needs of anyone from an
individual homeowner to a multi-dwelling
property owner. This is an enormous benefit to anyone who manages offsite properties or numerous dwellings or structures.
When moisture is detected, the Leak
Alert TM WiFi will sound a 105-dB alarm,
emit a visual warning by flashing a SOS,
and will send an email alert via your
Wi-Fi connection to up to five email ad-
dresses to warn of the water leak.
To ease worries about WiFi instal-
lation, Zircon not only provides step-
by-step instructions, a 24/7 Interac-
