Guardian Gadget Protects Homes from Water Damage

Chicago-based Elexa officially launches Guardian at CES 2018.

Guardian, the first water leak prevention system that does not require tools for installation and allows users to “set it and forget it” for ultimate peace of mind officially debuts at CES 2018. The Guardian Water Leak Prevention System consists of an autonomous valve controller as well as individual leak detectors with a 15-year battery life for placement around the house, providing leak detection by sensing water on both the top from drips and bottom from flooding.

Guardian, made by Chicago based Elexa Consumer Products is now available for $399 on You can tell that Guardian is made in USA. Just watch it in action below. The raw functionality makes it cool as hell. The Guardian can be installed by yourself. Watch the demonstration video below to see how it works.

“Elexa has succeeded based on our obsessive commitment to addressing home needs with innovative technology and perfecting the user experience. Guardian is the latest solution in this mission, delivering a reliable, always-on water leak prevention solution that anyone can install, requires no plumbing or tools, and is accessible even when the user is not in the home,” said Larry Beger, CEO, Elexa. “We took years to develop it, literally thinking of everything to ensure Guardian prevents water leaks and damage from the first drop, while offering ultimate ‘set it and forget it’ peace of mind.”

Water damage affects more households than fire and theft combined in the U.S. each year, yet the vast majority of homes are not equipped to mitigate or prevent the damages that can occur. In the U.S. alone, homeowners file more than 14,000 water damage claims per day, averaging between $6,000-$15,000 each and totaling up to $10 billion in preventable damages per year. Most of the damage comes from faulty appliances, burst pipes, and human error, with impact going far beyond just money lost, resulting in major inconvenience and often displacing families from their homes for weeks.

Guardian prevents water damage from the very first drop and even shuts off water in the event of an earthquake with built-in vibration sensors. Connected via the Guardian iOS and Android app, users can check the status of detectors, switch the valve controller on and off and check the temperature, ensuring around the clock visibility even outside the home.

Guardian will be exhibiting at CES in Sands, Halls A-D at booth #43009 and can also be found at the Z-Wave Pavilion in Sands at booth #41717.
