Water Defense Alarm Emits Audible Alert when Cable Detects Water

July 2, 2012 Leave a comment

Protect your home from water damage before it happens with Water Defense Water Alarm from Honeywell. The Water Alarm comes with a 4 foot long water sensing cable which is able to detect water along the entire length of the cable. If the cable detects water it will instantly emit an audible alarm to alert those around that there is a leak in the appliance(s) it is setup to monitor. An added feature with the Water Defense Water Alarm is that it is an expandable system. While it comes with a 4 foot long cable it is not limited to this if you want to use it to monitor a larger area. Water sensing cable extensions for this system can be added making it expandable up to 250 feet, expandable cable sold separately. The Water Alarm will also provide peace of mind when setup in areas that are not frequently observed such as water heaters and basement perimeters which could potentially go unnoticed for a time if a small leak were to start. The Water Defense Water Alarm base unit is powered by a 9V battery, sold separately, and the unit will emit an audible chirp to alert when the battery needs to be replaced.

Stay Safe By Installing a Tire Pressure Monitor System in Your Car

May 11, 2012 Leave a comment

Minder Research TMG300C Tire Pressure Monitoring System for CarsThe government estimates that 25% to 33% of all the vehicles on the road have at least one tire that is dangerously under inflated. Being only 6 psi below the recommended pressure can cause a catastrophic blowout or loss of control. Even if you avoid a blowout, low pressure causes premature tire wear of up to 25% reduction in tire life, and consumes 5% more gas. And overinflation is nearly as bad, as it reduces the contact patch with the road, negatively affecting handling and braking. What’s the solution, other than driving yourself crazy checking your tire pressures every day? Install this Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) and your car’s tire pressures are monitored all the time you are driving, and you will be alerted instantly if one (or more) tire loses pressure or if temperatures approach dangerous levels. Installation is super easy: charge the display, set the vehicle maker’s recommended pressures, then replace each tire’s valve caps one at a time as you program the display. That’s it! You can’t look at a tire and tell if it is inflated properly, but now you can look at your dashboard and know you’re safe.
