Broan BKL340_Chime sideWhen it comes to using a doorbell, things can’t be much simpler: push a button. Installing one is another matter, but Broan-Nutone has found a way to simplify that. The company’s new Line Voltage Doorbell builder’s kit has a built-in transformer and a wireless, battery-free kinetic pushbutton for quick, easy installation.

That gives homeowners a choice of the traditional wired line—which goes directly to line voltage to save installation time—or the kinetic wireless, which requires no batteries or power lines running outside the house. This is a huge timesaver for installers. And it’s a great convenience for the homeowner.

Each variety of Line Voltage has other unique features. The wired doorbell can also be paired with two other doors using the kinetic version. The wireless unit has eight different tones to select from, while the wired unit offers distinct front and back tones. And, the wired unit’s buttons include long-lasting LED bulbs, ensuring that house guests are never left in the dark.

StreamLabs Control_Front-webThe new ultrasonic StreamLabs Control valve allows monitoring of water use, checking for leaks and turning water off with a smartphone. The device is truly “smart” in that it can learn water use patterns and tip users off to abnormalities, such as excessive flow, or too-high or low pressure, humidity or water temperature. There’s also a downloadable drip alert app, Drip Detect, which can be checked daily, weekly or monthly. And, it has Home and Away modes to ensure household protection whenever needed.

StreamLabs Control is compatible with iPhone, iPad and Android phones and tablets, and it integrates with Google Nest and Amazon Alexa for smarthome-style monitoring. API access is available upon request.

The unit’s compact size makes it less-obtrusive than competing products. Installation is fairly simple; owners pretty much need to know how to cut the piping. A caveat: The unit is rated only for indoor use or within a weather-proof enclosure. StreamLabs hopes to have an outdoor-compatible unit on the market soon.

LeakSmart Leak Detection Tool

LeakSmart Protect_Hub_Sensor_Family 300Water damage is no fun—ask any homeowner who has spent thousands of dollars repairing walls or floors, or replacing furniture due to an exploded pipes or cracked water lines. Protect by LeakSmart with Flow is a leak detection system designed to automatically prevent such disasters.

A key innovation is LeakSmart’s auto-shutoff capabilities. When unwanted water is detected, the LeakSmart sensor springs into action, sounding an alarm, sending an alert and prompting the system’s valve to shut off the main water supply. This fast response can prevent rapid and costly damage that results in significant wasted resources for repairs and replacement of floors, walls and ceilings. About 40 percent of damaging leaks come from appliances, 40 percent from in-wall leaks and 20 percent from natural flooding.

Another innovative feature of this system is its ability to continue monitoring for leaks during a power outage, as there is battery power for the hub and the shutoff valve. Homebuilders and homeowners alike are protected with LeakSmart’s five-year manufacturer’s warranty when purchased and installed by a professional installer.

Flo by Moen_glam2-webMoen and partner Flo Technologies have become household names in home water security. Its Flo by Moen Smart Water Shutoff already gives homeowners a way to detect leaks and turn off household water via their smartphones to prevent damage to walls or floors. Now, the company’s Smart Water Detector ups the ante.

Smart Water Detector is a standalone, 3.5-inch sensor that can be placed anywhere in a house to alert users if, and when, it detects moisture to help prevent water damage and loss. If the detector senses the presence of water, freezing temperatures or high humidity, it will alert users through a push notification in the Flo by Moen and Moen smartphone apps. Homeowners can use and connect multiple detectors within their home and if they also have the Smart Water Shutoff, a leak sensed by the Smart Water Detector can automatically trigger the shutoff feature to protect the home from water damage.

The Smart Water Detector can also work independently from the Smart Water Shutoff, giving consumers the opportunity to achieve smart home water management at any reasonable budget.
