A leaking water pipe or an overflowing bath, sink or toilet that goes undetected can cause serious and costly damage to your home. That’s why we offer the Flood Detector.
The Flood Detector is an unobtrusive sensor that provides an early, audible warning in potential flood situations. Simply place the unit on the floor under a sink, near a toilet or by the shower. When two of the units three sensors encounter water, the detector sounds an audible alarm. A signal is also automatically sent to the Northwood Intouch base unit, triggering a call to the local response center where an operator will take the appropriate action.
Temperature Extreme Sensor
Keeping your living areas at the right temperature is critical, especially in the summer months, to help prevent heat stress. Northwood Intouch has a Temperature Extremes Sensor that was created to send an alert when an area is too hot, too cold, or changing temperatures too rapidly. Seniors are especially prone to heat stress for a few different reasons:
- A senior’s body response to heat can be altered due to a chronic medical condition.
- Elderly people aren’t able to adjust to sudden temperature changes like young people.
- The chances are greater that they take prescription medication that impairs their body’s ability to regulate its temperature or inhibits perspiration, our body’s way of cooling down naturally.
The sensor can send alerts to the base unit when temperatures reaches 35˚C or higher for more than two minutes or if the temperature in the room rises by 1°C per minute over a 30-minute period or more than 3°C per minute over a five-minute period.
Just by them knowing that if their loved one falls, has a flood or wanders off or is at the stove, Northwood Intouch will be there to detect it and help will be on the way
