Lyric W1 leak and freeze detector launched by Honeywell

Honeywell has announced the latest in its Lyric line of connected home products: the Lyric W1 Wi-Fi Water Leak and Freeze Detector.

The device provides installers with a convenient and easy-to-install solution to monitor water leaks, humidity levels and damage from low temperatures around the home. Installers can offer this device to their customers to give them peace of mind and protection against water leaks; by sending homeowners an alert through the Lyric app if a water leak or freezing conditions are detected, the Lyric W1 enables them to take action quickly, according to the manufacturer.

Insurance claims for “escape of water” damage are estimated to account for one in five of all domestic claims in the UK. This includes problems caused by burst and frozen pipes, leaks caused by old and corroded pipes, or water damage caused by the leak.

“A burst water pipe can result in thousands of pounds worth of damage,” said Andy Mansfield, Marketing Communiucations Manager at Honeywell. “By adding the Lyric Water Leak Detector to the Lyric family of smart products, installers have an additional product that can be easily fitted during every job, allowing them to provide a solution that can help reduce damage, stress and the costs caused by leaks. The addition of frost protection and humidity warnings to the device further extends the applications that can be offered.”

The Lyric W1 Wi-Fi Water Leak and Freeze Detector monitors freezing conditions or impending moisture issues through built-in sensors that track indoor temperature and moisture levels. Leaks are also detected by the 1.2m long fully sensing cable, which can detect liquids throughout its entire length, increasing the detection area. The connected cable can be placed around pipes, along floors, and other spaces at risk of water damage. Additional cables can be added to cover larger areas of up to 150m.

Featuring a loud, 100-decibel siren, the device warns homeowners of water leaks and freezing conditions. Alerts are also sent via the Lyric app, helping homeowners to respond even when they are away from home, whilst users can also have a friend or family member notified who may be able to attend to the property sooner.

The Lyric W1 Wi-Fi Water Leak and Freeze Detector is claimed to be a one box solution connected directly to the home Wi-Fi and does not require a hub or wiring, making it easy to install within minutes. The Lyric app guides users through the quick set-up process. Powered by battery, the device does not have to be connected to the main power supply and can be placed anywhere in the home.
