Who’s watching your house when you’re not there?
DROP has your back!
As we enter the busy holiday travel season, it’s a good time to think about protecting your home while you’re away visiting friends and family. Unoccupied dwellings have a much higher risk of burglary, fire, and water damage due to leaks. And if you are fortunate enough to have a second home that you use for getaways or vacations throughout the year, the risks of damage can be even greater. Insurance companies recognize this and assess 10% to 30% second home surcharges. They know that if your washing machine hose ruptures or your water heater springs a leak, catastrophic damage can occur. The longer it goes unnoticed, the worse it gets.
DROP Protection Systems are designed to monitor your home 24/7, alert you if there are potential problems and turn the water off before damage can occur. DROP uses a flow meter to identify leaky pipes or faucets, faulty toilet flappers, and burst pipes. A pressure sensor will catch micro-leaks, high water pressure that can damage appliances or annoying low pressure. Plus, up to 32 wireless remote leak detectors throughout your home monitor air temperature and can immediately shut the water off if water touches them or temperatures in the house are near freezing due to a malfunctioning furnace.
Whether you are at home, at work, or at the beach, DROP gives you the peace of mind that your homes are protected from wasteful and costly water leaks. The DROP App allows you to monitor and control from your smartphone multiple locations while you’re away. And many home insurance companies offer discounts for installing a DROP Protection System. Check with your local insurance provider to learn if you are eligible for a discount.
