Resideo Showcases Water Security Solutions
Resideo releases new water leak and freeze detector solution, new Resideo Academy education app, and Pro-IQ Service software.
Resideo Technologies, Inc. has unveiled several new solutions for integrators, including water leak detection, some new predictive software, and a new education app.
“With more than 10 million connected solutions installed worldwide, Resideo is uniquely positioned to deliver innovative professional services to help homeowners protect their most important investment,” said Scott Ziffra, Senior Vice President, Engineering & Product Management at Resideo.
Leak and Freeze Detection Devices Are Wi-Fi Based
The Resideo L Series smart water leak damage defense system, which was previewed at the Resideo Connect event in Florida in November, responds to water alerts with an automatic shutoff response for simple water damage prevention. Professional installers can easily link the L5 WiFi Water Leak Shutoff Valve with multiple Resideo WiFi Water Leak and Freeze Detectors to create a water leak detection and defense system for whole home coverage.
Water damage is one of the most common and costly home insurance claims – yet the majority of water damage claims are preventable. In 2021, the company’s water leak detectors helped stop an estimated 2.4 million gallons of water leaks and prevented $2.6 million in insurance claims.
The L Series system offers an impressive, professional-grade system that includes:
The New Resideo L1 WiFi Water Leak and Freeze Detector: senses water leaks, temperature changes and humidity, and sends an alert – either via the Resideo app or the device – when a leak is detected, or when the temperature or humidity levels are outside of a set range.
The Resideo Braukmann L5 WiFi Water Leak Shutoff Valve: connects to the main water supply and can automatically turn off the supply to the home if a water leak is detected either by a sensor cable or a paired Resideo WiFi Water Leak and Freeze Detector.
“I have the L5 installed in my home and the process was extremely easy, and the app set up was very user friendly,” said Dominick Esposito, Plumbing & Water Systems Product Manager at F.W. Webb Company. “An automatic water shutoff system is critical to have in a home and I will recommend it to my customers.”
The Braukmann L5 WiFi Water Leak Shutoff Valve launched in November 2022, and the Resideo L1 WiFi Water Leak and Freeze Detector will be available through select North American distributors in March 2023.
Resideo Pro-IQ Services System Intelligence Tools
The company recently rolled out Pro-IQ Services, an adaptable suite of intelligent, predictive software tools designed for the evolving connected home. Pro-IQ Services meets various professional needs:
In-app branding amplifies marketing and customer retention efforts by placing the HVAC company’s logo and contact information in the Resideo app, keeping the company top-of-mind when a customer requires a service call.
The Pro-IQ LifeWhere Solution is an HVAC diagnostics tool that allows professionals to remotely monitor their customer’s HVAC equipment. If an issue is detected, the professional will receive an alert, allowing them to proactively schedule a service call and address the issue before it becomes a larger one. The Pro-IQ LifeWhere Solution can be bundled with in-app branding.
Pro-IQ Services work with the company’s smart devices and are available as a monthly subscription.
Resideo Academy App Provides Access to Courses
The new Resideo Academy App offers HVAC, plumbing and security professionals access to the full catalog of Resideo Academy courses via a phone or tablet. It delivers the right training at the right time, delivered right to the device.
“Our professionals enjoy keeping their skills sharp by learning about the latest installation methods, products, and integration techniques to advance their capabilities,” said Lee U’Ren, Global Director of Training & Enablement at Resideo. “With this new tool, professionals can access learning anywhere and can even download courses while on-the-job when WiFi coverage isn’t optimal, and college students enrolled in our partnership schools will already have it as they start their new careers.”
The Reside Academy App is available for download on Google and Apple app stores.
