Smart, affordable water leak detector from Roost

Boot Camp feature for Tuesday, September 6, 2016

A smart and affordable water leak detector.   I’m Fred Fishkin with BootCamp, your Techstination for gadgets and gear.     Technology for smart homes isn’t always expensive.   A company called Roost has been on the4 market with a Smart Battery for smoke detectors that connects to WiFi and gives you emergency alerts wherever you are….and gives you a heads up when the battery need replacing.   It sells for about 35 dollars.   This fall the Roost Smart Water and Freeze Detector is due to arrive.   Chief Marketing Officer David Henry…

“We’re leveraging a very small, elegantly little designed product.  It’s battery operated so it doesn’t require and hub and it also does not require AC power.    And it also can be easily located in those water sensitive locations.”

It connects to WiFi and a smartphone app and will sell for about fifty dollars.   You can find more at GetRoost.com.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
