The Nest and leakSMART™ integration will help homeowners feel more comfortable knowing that at the first sign of a water leak, the two will seamlessly work together to automatically shut off the home’s main water valve and provide the ability to call an emergency contact. Without any human intervention, the leakSMART™ system shuts off the home’s water in less than five seconds whenever a wireless leakSMART™ sensor detects a water leak.
“leakSMART™ is proud to be part of the Works with Nest program,” said Larry Waxman, CEO of Waxman Consumer Products Group, Inc., the parent company of leakSMART™. “It has always been our goal to eliminate water damage and to allow homeowners to feel personally in control of their home’s water. Our integration with Nest is taking this mission a step further by helping to provide homeowners with even greater peace of mind and home protection whenever a leak is detected.”
The leakSMART™ system is available online at Amazon.com or directly through leakSMART™.

Why I’m Passionate About This Project
According to the Insurance Information Institute, more than 2.6 million homes experience water damage every year. Many times, burst supply lines or faulty appliances cause this devastating and costly water damage. In fact, it is the second most common home insurance claim in the U.S.
This system not only detects water leaks throughout your home, but also shuts off the water in less than 5 seconds when a leak is detected. Plus, it alerts you with audible and visible alarms, as well as a smart device app notification.
