Like many home security problems, water damage can happen quickly, unexpectedly, and out of sight. According to a recent survey of 1,200 homeowners conducted by, 83% believe that an automated detection system would prevent or lessen the outcome of water damage in their home. Furthermore, the need for an integrated solution is apparent, with the survey finding that 88% would like one app to control home security, provide water protection, and manage energy consumption.

“The Water Dragon is part of a comprehensive energy and water management offering that includes not only smart thermostats, water devices, and lights, but also solar and irrigation systems,” said Abe Kinney, senior director of product management at “In the app, consumers can monitor and automate their energy usage to make smarter and more sustainable decisions that are better for their home, budgets, and reducing their carbon footprint.” According to’s homeowner survey, 84% of respondents would like to monitor water consumption more closely to minimize waste and reduce environmental impact.

The compact device can monitor for leaks where a traditional water sensor can't be placed and notify property owners of unexpected water activity such as running toilets or hidden leaks in the walls and floors. The Water Dragon also allows users to monitor the temperature of their pipes and sends alerts for potential frozen pipes, safeguarding against catastrophic water damage.
