First I would like to say that the SimpliSafe system paid for itself yesterday when my water heater burst a leak. Although we had minor damage, gone unnoticed, this would have been a real disaster had the water sensor not notified me of a presence of water.
The system certainly makes you aware there is a problem and the dispatch center called as an extra layer of notification. I do have a question, however. If I had been out of town, say, and no one had access to my house, is it possible for dispatch to send, say the fire department to turn off the water in the house? Not sure what the protocol is on that, but the purpose would kind of be defeated if there was not a way to prevent further damage.
Interested in what the policy is on this.
