If you’re like most people, you probably don’t think about your home’s temperature until it’s too late. A low-temperature sensor can save you a lot of money. It can help prevent your pipes from bursting due to extreme cold, which would be expensive and time-consuming. Not only does it protect your home, but also provides peace of mind for homeowners worried about their pipes freezing.

The low-temperature sensor can trigger your security system to:

– Turn off the water supply in your home

– Activate a sump pump to remove standing water from basements and crawl spaces

– Send a notification via email or mobile application

There are a lot of houses that we are called into where there is water damage from a burst pipe. A low-temperature sensor is an inexpensive device that will provide you with peace of mind.It’s worth it for any homeowner, especially those who think that it will not happen to them.

What does adding a low-temperature sensor cost?

If you have an existing security system or purchase a brand new one, typically the cost for reassurances that your home is safe is less than a pizza at your favorite pizza place. And that’s a small price to pay for protecting your home.

Water damage to a home can range from a few hundred dollars to tens of thousands of dollars, so don’t wait until it’s too late. Protect your home and family today with a low-temperature sensor!

Can you imagine returning home from a cold day at work only to realize that you have water damage?

Can I add the low-temperature sensor myself?

If you have an existing security system, the low-temperature sensor is typically a DIY installation. If you’re not comfortable installing it yourself, CGSmith will do it for you at no additional cost.

If you don’t have a security system or are in the market for a new one, there are plenty of options to choose from. Our flagship Qolsys is a great system that integrates directly with to provide you with the most feature-rich experience.

Where should I place the low-temperature sensor?

Typically, the sensor is placed near a water source such as under sinks or toilets. The typical operating distance of a wireless connection between your security system and sensors ranges from 50 feet to 300+ feet depending on obstacles. We usually place them in basements near the water main. In larger homes or businesses we will place more than one. If you have any questions about where or how many sensors should be placed, feel free to ask our staff for assistance!
