High Water Alarms – SMG Security

As the amount of annual rainfall increases, the chances for basement flooding during heavy rains also increase as cracks develop in weakened, water-logged foundations. Sometimes it’s difficult to know when your basement starts flooding, due to heavy rains or a broken water line. This is when a high water alarm and sump pump could help.

Floodwaters coat the floor of a basement where laundry equipment is present.

Sump pumps and high water alarm systems

 

According to data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the previous 12 months have been the wettest on record. In fact, 2022 marks the third year in a row in which the amount of precipitation in the U.S. has increased, and there is nothing to indicate this situation will change any time in the near future.

 

Given the ever-increasing rainfall totals around the city, we think it’s essential to have a sump pump to protect your residence, especially if you have a basement or garden residence that could be prone to flooding.

 

We also believe it’s equally important to have a working high water alarm system that lets you know when the water level in low lying areas of your residence is on the verge of becoming a serious problem.

 

In case you’re not already familiar with it, a high water alarm is used to monitor water levels in a tank to prevent disasters like basement flooding or a septic system backup. The sump pump alarm notifies you if a pump is failing or a drain line has become plugged. When inches of rain water or water from a leak run over the sump pump, it’s float switches on an alarm to let you know a flood is occurring in your basement.

 

This gives you time to respond and take corrective action before serious damage is done to your possessions and property.

 

High water alarms from SMG Security

 

SMG’s water probe alarm system allows water or any non-flammable fluid to be detected with both low voltage and low current. It can monitor two sensor probes simultaneously, making it ideal for basements, laundry rooms, kitchens, and any other area in your home where flooding is possible and an early warning is needed to prevent serious property damage.

 

Further, you can monitor our high water alarms remotely, just as you can screen our security cameras, giving you time to respond to a rising water issue before major damage is incurred.

A high water alarm system from SMG Security can provide an extra layer of protection, potentially saving you thousands of dollars in repair and restoration costs.

In Their Words

Thanks for your help with this process! Your install team was amazing! They were extremely efficient and we hardly knew they were there. Great guys who took the time to show us how to use the system and answered all our questions. I’m sure I will have some for them down the road. Big thanks to you and your team!

- Frank M.

The installation crew that was here was FABULOUS!!! I didn’t even know they were here most of the time. There was no doubt in my mind that they knew what they were doing. You have no idea how comforting that is. As I’m sure you know, that isn’t always the case when there are technicians in the building. It went very smoothly and we’re so grateful for that! Please extend my gratitude and appreciation for the job they did. I knew we made the right decision!

We used SMG for monitoring services for our home for 35 years (!) and were consistently well served and attended to. Calls were always picked up promptly, and the service attendants never failed to immediately call to check in on us if the alarm was ever triggered (99% of the time were false alarms we generated...oops...). Service technicians were very competent as well. Highly recommend.

Recently switched my monitoring service company for an Elk Grove location. These guys gave me the best quote for an affordable system! Great company!

A short note to tell you about the great customer service provided by your staff. We moved to Wheaton in August 2019 to a townhome that had an older SMG System. Anthony came out and explained the SMG capabilities, John updated the system and Dave has been by several times to troubleshoot and solve problems. The three are real professionals and know what they are doing. The administrative staff on the phone are always very helpful and professional. Please thank them for their service.

Your employees, from the start through completion of the job, were professional and concise in the performance of their work... From the first contact through the end of the project Christian kept me informed, answered all of my questions, and guided me in having the correct system installed... They were indeed professional, polite, kept their work area tidy and worked around all of the functions we had going on at the church. I am especially grateful for these men being on our job as they are the face of your company and they represented you well.

I wanted to take a moment to share with you some good news you may not hear every day but I am sure you will welcome. Your team completed the installation of the security system in Bethel. They were professional and followed our safety, security and Covid-19 protocols to the letter. Throughout the installation, communication was great and the team was very friendly and helpful. In particular, I want to call out Dino for his great customer service. Thanks.

Awesome. I just wanted to pass along that the fire alarm test yesterday was without a doubt one of the best I have ever witnessed. The crews had everything set up and ready to go and were even asking me questions about the programming before we started so they could get the changes made. They had no issues with some of the changes I requested due to our local codes and immediately corrected them. Absolutely everything went smoothly and the guys were great to work with. I really hope I get to work with them again.

Your team just left and I wanted to take a moment to say how great both Armando and Mike were during the camera installation process. Everything is up and running and I could not be more pleased.
