High Water Alarms

Water damage and basement flooding is a common problem. If your sump pump should fail, it may be too late before you know it.

SMG offers the low-cost solution of monitoring the level of the water in your sump pump.

 

 

We can alert you when the water starts to reach a level that is higher than it should be, allowing you time to investigate the issue and repair the pump before flooding occurs. SMG has more than 30 years of experience designing and servicing alarm systems. Our security engineers are National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technologies (NICET) certified – learn more about our high water alarms today.

 

 

What Is A High Water Alarm?

 

These alarm systems can be used to monitor the liquid levels in a tank to prevent septic system backups. You can receive notifications just like you do with our security camera systems in Chicago. The alarms will notify you of a failing submersible pump or a plugged line, which could cause the liquid level to rise in your septic tank. This alarm can save you money and hassles of repairing and replacing the water-damaged property that could happen without one. You can call us to learn about how water alarms help detect early signs of leakage.

 

Benefits

 

The main benefit of having a high water alarm is the ability to give you more time to move valuables or water-sensitive material before costly water damage occurs. You can also investigate the issue and possibly stop the leakage from getting out of hand once the alarm sounds. other benefits may include:

 

  • Saving power: Automatic controllers help limit electricity usage and less water is needed to regulate supply.
  • Saving money: A water level controller can help save money by limiting and regulating the waste of water and electricity.
  • Automatic regulations: Water levels can be maintained at appropriate levels with automatic operations of the high water alarm.
  • Water maximization: This means that a controller can maximize the water usage provided during midday while automatically lessening the water usage at night. 

 

Our Design

 

SMG’s water probe is designed to allow water or any conductive non-flammable liquid to be detected with low voltage and low current. It can monitor up to two sensor probes simultaneously. Ideal for basements, laundry rooms, and kitchens—or anywhere flooding is a possibility and early warning is desirable to prevent damage.

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.
