Posted by Janet B. Stroud — December 1, 2023 — Leak Defense, a Watts brand, has announced the release of BuildAlert, a new system that allows users to gain 24/7 visibility into their construction jobsite. It enables the ability to automatically turn off water in the event of a leak — both during and after working hours.
BuildAlert offers a comprehensive set of features designed to streamline and enhance water management at construction sites. With automatic controls, displays, and alarms, users have easy access to essential functions whether on or off the jobsite. The system utilizes remote ON/OFF capabilities accessible via a free PC or Mobile App, making it convenient to control operations as long as there’s a jobsite internet connection.
For added convenience and security, BuildAlert allows users to schedule automatic scene/mode changes after hours. Furthermore, the system maintains jobsite water pressure to help ensure a steady supply of water. For advanced integration and customization, the system offers an optional API for input/output signaling to remote systems, output alarms, or building management systems / building automation systems (BMS/BAS).
