Flooding is a continuous threat for many people in the UK. The LeveLine-EWS functions as both an early flood warning system, providing instant alerts to rising water levels and as a continuous water level monitor. These great new systems are available to purchase now.
This cost effective and extremely simple system requires no regular maintenance and no annual subscriptions. The water level sensor records changes in water level and temperature and will send SMS / email alerts when preset alert levels are reached. You can also send the device an SMS message requesting the current level so you can check the level at any time of day for added peace of mind.
The logging regime can be configured through SMS and Email messages using predefined commands or a complete settings email can be sent from the included PC application direct to the device. Daily logs are then sent direct to your email address and are automatically added to historical data in the PC application meaning you can see the historic trends over time.
Flood prevention may not be possible but with an early flood warning system you can help to alert your household / community / business of rising water levels giving you the chance to protect your assets from flood damage.
In recent years, the weather is becoming more erratic and less predictable. Many areas are suffering from regular flooding. The early flood warning system will give householders, business owners, and local authorities more warning before a flood so that they have more time to act. An early warning system could give you sufficient time to put measures in place to protect your property and possessions. For example, you could turn off your power and gas, move your car to higher ground, and ensure your most treasured possessions are stored above the highest possible flood line.
The LeveLine-EWS uses the LeveLine-Mini water level sensor to record small changes in the water level as well as temperature. The instrument constantly measures and records the water level and temperature using a highly sensitive pressure sensor and temperature thermistor, data is then stored in the AquaTelemetry unit between data uploads. The AquaTelemetry unit features a barometric pressure sensor to fully compensate the data recorded by the LeveLine-Mini against changes in air pressure allowing it to measure changes as small as 1cm.
There are many different applications where an early flood warning system can be beneficial, triggering warnings or calls to action.
