FortrezZ was established in 2008 with the goal of manufacturing and providing affordable and easy to use products based on a proven successful technology.
The new sensors are a continuation of FortrezZ’s proven technology in leak detection. Improvements and changes over the previous generation include a completely new enclosure with more advanced sensing elements, improved power consumption, use of AA batteries, and firmware changes to allow for better communication with z-wave gateways / controllers. Color options include black and white.
The new sensors also include temperature reporting and freeze detection which was a popular feature in the previous generation. Temperature reports help homeowners monitor temperature variations within their home and discover potentially risky areas.
Ready to be sold to distributors and installers of home automation, the new sensors will fill demand from customers looking for peace of mind when away from home. The new sensors will be an integral part of the FortrezZ “Water and Freeze” Detection, Alarm, and Damage Prevention System.
