Control Products, a leader in electronic control technology, design and global manufacturing, will be unveiling its new product that combines wireless water detection technology with remote monitoring capabilities, Wireless WaterAlarm, at the AHR Expo 2011 at the Las Vegas convention center. This product can be used for residential as well as commercial purposes.

Up to 10 wireless water detection sensors can be connected to a Wireless WaterAlarm, providing both on-site and remote water detection monitoring in different remote locations within a home, cabin or business.

These sensors can be easily located anywhere water could cause damage, such as around sump pump baskets, sinks, water heaters, sprinkler systems, kitchens, laundry rooms or bathrooms. Because they are wireless, sensors can be easily added and placed in optimal monitoring locations. Installation takes just seconds and the wireless technology eliminates the need to run unsightly wire to remote locations within the structure.

The Wireless WaterAlarm is an ideal product where water detection monitoring remote from the base unit is required. When water is detected by a sensor, the WaterAlarm will call up to three user programmed telephone numbers and provide a recorded message before disaster occurs. The Wireless WaterAlarm will also call out in case of a power outage or when the backup nine volt battery needs replacing.

The wireless WaterAlarm is a value added product contractors and distributors can offer to their residential and commercial customers. Contractors can also bundle this product with a monitoring service to their customers.

Control Products specializes in electronic control solutions in technology, design, and embedded communications with Internet connectivity and global manufacturing. Its products are used in many commercial and consumer applications around the world. Application examples include controls and embedded communications for food service equipment, HVAC, medical, Industrial, residential security, freeze protection and water detection.
