Smart Sensors: For Your Safety, Security and Peace of Mind

Smart sensors add a new level of safety, security, and convenience to a home. They can alert you of problems with lights, security cameras, water lines, and HVAC units as well as resolve the issue for you. 

Smart Sensor Air Monitoring

Air quality smart sensors monitor temperature, humidity, and VOCs. VOCs, or volatile organic compounds, are compounds that easily become vapors or gasses. These can be released by cooking appliances, heating units, and many consumer products. Air quality smart sensors can be used in kids’ rooms, the kitchen, or outdoors for all-around safety and security.

Smoke Alarms with Smart Sensors

It is now required (code) to network all smoke alarms together in homes. Most electricians still spend hours breaking drywall and crawling through attics in order to link clients’ smoke alarms.

At iTrust, we can do it electronically, in a fraction of the time and with no damage to your home. Smart sensor networked alarms stay connected to each other even when your WiFi and power go out. Smart sensor networked alarms create their own network, improving reliability and therefore, safety and peace of mind.

Smarter Safety

Smart sensor alarms detect more than smoke. They use advanced algorithms to give you a warning when smoke is building but not at critical levels. In addition,  a split spectrum detector knows the difference between fast and slow burning fires. And, a humidity detector decreases false alarms and notifies you of ventilation problems. All of which can save precious time in the event of a fire.

Smart alarms also perform monthly self-checks of batteries and speakers. This stops the loud chirping of the alarm due to a dead battery.  Even when you aren’t home, your phone will be notified of issues, giving you the choice to stop the alarm.

Best of all, you can call the fire department and let them into your home remotely with your smart sensor lock… no need for crowbars, axes and unnecessary damage.  These sensors can also be networked with smart thermostats to turn off the HVAC unit when a fire starts.

Smart Sensor Alarm Systems

Protecting our family is a fundamental human need. We lock our doors, have big dogs, and install alarm systems. Often, however, we don’t arm the alarm systems because of the hassle. With conventional alarm systems, it’s difficult to tell if they’re working properly. Unfortunately, we  usually find out after the emergency, if they were triggered at all.

Smart sensor alarm systems are steps ahead when it comes to security and usability.  These systems alert you when they detect tampering or motion inside your home.  They exclude irrelevant movement outside, while detecting the tampering of doors and windows.  

Plus, they link with other smart devices and can turn on lights, open shades, and notify you to check your cameras remotely.  Intruders know how long it takes emergency responders to arrive, but they don’t know how long it takes for you to call your neighbor when you get an alarm notification.

Additionally, when paired with cameras, you have all the information you need, when you need it giving you and your family the safety they deserve.

Leak Detection via Smart Sensors

Though smoke detectors and alarms protect us from fire and theft, they can’t protect your home from the #2 risk to our homes; water damage from leaks. It is “dumb” not to catch leaks before it is too late. Therefore, we’d like to introduce you to our smart sensor leak detection.

Electronic leak detectors can be placed in common, vulnerable spots and monitor the whole home water system. These detectors shut off the main water supply automatically when it detects a leak. Plus, you get notified of leaks you wouldn’t catch until it is too late, saving you thousands of dollars in repairs to your home.

Smart Sensor Motion Lighting

You make enjoy a hot, steamy shower; unfortunately mold does too. With smart sensor motion lighting, you can set the exhaust fan to continue to run after your shower then automatically turn off in 15 minutes. As a result, your bathroom dries out, eliminating mold and mildew growth.

We all know that kids never turn off light switches. With smart sensor lighting, the lights turn off when the kids leave the room, saving energy costs. Plus, no more spreading of germs from dirty light switches.

iTrust Home Services also provides smart sensor lighting for your pantry, garage and closets too.
