Why should I use a non-tech water leak alarm instead of a smart home water alarm?

Simple water leak alarms and smart water leak alarms both have their own set of benefits and drawbacks, and the decision of which type of alarm to use will depend on your specific needs and preferences. Here are some reasons why you may choose to use a simple water leak alarm over a smart water leak alarm:

  1. Cost: Simple water leak alarms tend to be less expensive than smart water leak alarms. They typically cost less than $20 and can be found in most home improvement stores or online.  All Flood Buzz models are cost effective, starting at only $4.16/unit depending on the model.

  2. Ease of use: Simple water leak alarms are very easy to install and use, and Flood Buzz comes with preinstalled internal batteries that never need to be replaced. All of our models can even be placed in tight spaces, like under the sink, or tucked away in a corner, making them less visible.

  3. Alarm sound: Simple water leak alarms have a loud alarm that will sound when a leak is detected. This can be an effective way to alert you to a leak quickly without having to rely on phone or email alerts.

  4. No connectivity needed: Simple water leak alarms don't require any connectivity to a network, you don't need an internet connection, nor a phone connection, to detect a leak, which can be beneficial if you are concerned about the alarm being affected by a network outage.

  5. No subscription fees: Simple water leak alarms do not require any monthly or annual subscription fees, which can save you money in the long run.
