CES 2015 - Waxman Industries debuts its leakSMART home water protection system that stops water leaks automatically and has the ability to shut off a home's water in less than five seconds. Using the leakSMART smartphone app, home owners also can receive updates, track water usage, and remotely manage any problems.
"leakSMART makes the smart home something practical for the average homeowner," said Larry Waxman, president and CEO of Waxman Industries, in a press statement. "leakSMART has more than a 'cool gadget factor.' With leakSMART, the everyday homeowner can prevent water leaks in their house, eliminating the possibility of water damage and the thousands of dollars of loss associated with it."
Smart technology will become more prevalent in our homes, and continues to evolve away from just gimmicky, useless features. CES will be a showcase for smart devices, though only 1.5 million households in the United States have smart-enabled devices already in place, according to NextMarket Insights.
