These sensors are placed on the floor and will alert if they detect water on the floor to warn of a potential flood
For people with a learning disability or who have difficulties with their memory, the act of running a bath alone comes with the risk of a flood if the taps aren’t turned off in time. This can result in a situation where the person ends up waiting for and relying on a third party to run their baths, impacting negatively on independence and potentially causing frustration.
Flood sensing telecare sensors can be placed on the floor to automatically alert a third party to warn of a potential flood if water is detected on the floor. Having the knowledge that the flood risk is greatly reduced can mean the difference between someone relying on others to run their baths, or going ahead and running their own whenever they feel like it.
Flood sensors can alert via a pager or Lifeline phone.
