StreamLabs, a Chubb company that offers smart water monitoring, leak detention and water shut-off devices and systems, has launched Scout, a point-of-leak sensor.

The sensor is distinguished by its small size and contemporary design, DIY setup and ability to be used independently or as part of a StreamLabs leak detection system.
Scout alerts homeowners, tenants or property managers in real-time to the presence of water. It also sends alerts for fluctuating temperature and humidity levels that may indicate a problem.
In addition, Scout is self-installed in minutes and compatible with StreamLabs Control.
Furthermore, Scout sends real-time alerts to the StreamLabs mobile app, providing the opportunity for the user to take action.
“Water damage is the number one source of non-weather-related property damage, which includes plumbing system failures, burst pipes or leaking appliances,” said Hemant Sarma, senior vice president, head of Internet of Things (IoT) at Chubb. “Scout makes water leak detection easy with early warnings to potential problems, providing peace-of-mind.”
