Hazard remediation is live now! Looks like the monitoring certificate that we send to our insurance for discounts off our monthly rate has now been upgraded so we aren’t just limited to burglary monitoring. We can now get it to include Freeze and Leak monitoring:
Monitoring Tab → Home Monitoring Settings → Monitoring Certificate → Learn More (to see the above screenshot in the app)
In addition, it looks like there is a new Hazard Remediation feature I didn’t know about where our sensors can be set up to have us get a call and have a sound go off on our hub:
Monitoring Tab → Home Monitoring Settings → Environment (to update which sensors are monitored and see the Hazard Remediation explanation)
The “Environment” section of the monitoring tab now has an option to change sensors between groups of “Monitored Sensors” vs “General Sensors” for the Leak and Climate Sensors. For example, I don’t want my backyard climate sensor being “monitored” for freezing issues, and I don’t want my backyard hose leak sensor going off every time someone turns on the hose outside, but a lot of the other sensors can be added to that list of what to monitor. Maybe I’ll put a climate sensor in the furnace room around my main pipes now that it is monitored.
Interesting that they have to review it manually instead of just going based on what’s in the app settings.
I’d love to hear anyone else’s experiences with this.
Burglary; Smoke/fire; Carbon monoxide; Water leak; Freeze; Communication Loss (seems they could just monitor if the HMS connectivity disconnects from our modem/router and then the Wyze server tell Noonlight that connectivity was down…we’ve been asking for connectivity notices for a while…this should be easy to add just based on whether the HMS stops updating)
EDIT UPDATE: Wyze has now added an update to where we are notified if the Hub loses connectivity! Hopefully this can soon be updated to be monitored by Noonlight so we can add that to the certificate too.
Thought some people would be interested in this. Let us know if you try any of this and what you find out! Also, did your insurance give you a bigger discount for having Leak and Freeze detection now too?
I would be very interested in hearing about anyone’s experience.
