PORTLAND, Ore. (PRWEB) January 21, 2020
PointCentral, the recognized leader in enterprise-scale Property Automation solutions for short-term and long-term residential property managers, today announces the integration of Alarm.com’s Smart Water Valve+Meter into PointCentral’s IoT platform to help property managers prevent costly damage from water leaks in any of their properties and residents be smarter about water usage. Not only does the Smart Water Valve+Meter automatically detect high and low-pressure water leaks, and notify the property manager, it automatically shuts off the water supply when it detects a problem, eliminating the possibility of major structural damage and loss of personal property.
“Damage from water is the #2 most filed insurance claim in the U.S., with the average cost nearly $7,000,” said Sean Miller, president of PointCentral. “For property managers responsible for hundreds or thousands of properties, the risks are enormous. Our new Smart Water Valve+Meter was developed for just that purpose – to minimize their risk. In addition, the water management capabilities of the system allow managers and residents to monitor and report water consumption to help reduce waste and costs.”
As a smart device that is integrated with the PointCentral enterprise-grade automation platform, property managers and residents are able to manage everything from a central experience in the PointCentral website and mobile app – receive notifications of excessive water usage, dangerous temperature drops that may freeze pipes, toilets that run continually, and more. The device is designed to cost-effectively install into a housing unit’s main water line.
The Smart Water Valve+Meter will be available in the second quarter of 2020.
