HMS Hazard Remediation updates - Leak & Freeze Monitoring certificate now available

Thought I’d share what I recently found in the app (I checked the Production App and the Beta app, and it’s showing in Both!). 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.

If anyone tries this, please let us know how it went. Let us know what Noonlight said to you.
Interesting that they have to review it manually instead of just going based on what’s in the app settings.

Also, please let us know if the Hazard remediation sound is the same as the siren when you test it out (if I get around to testing this in the daytime I will update). I assume for the leak sensors we can just add them as a monitored sensor and then dip them in water and see what sound is made on the hub. For a climate sensor, I imagine we’d have to throw it in the freezer and wait until it hits below 32 degrees before the siren is triggered.

I’d love to know if all this works in testing mode or if it only works when we switch to normal monitoring. Also curious if we have to send Noonlight a screenshot for the Hazard remediation options to kick in first.


Now on the certificate we still need:

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)


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.
