Floods cost the Australian government over $500 million in damages every year, with areas closer to rivers or potential flood plains resulting in significantly higher costs when the disasters strike.

The average price to repair a bungalow basement after flood damage is set to between $40,000 and $60,000 – a price simply too high for some people to be able to pay, especially after floods have also crippled local commerce.

Flood Detection Systems have been incorporated into Alarm Doctor’s service portfolio following NSW’s latest floods in 2016, resulting in hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages for residents alone after being hit with 225mm of rain in just 24 hours.

FDS’ solutions are designed to be long-lasting and dependable, coming with an integrated anti-vandal cage and special-polymer casing to ensure it remains protected against the elements and cracking effects of the sun.

The sensors are designed to notify residents or occupants of a given property of an impending flood by detecting the presence of rising waters.

Alarm Doctor can seamlessly install any number of flood detection units across a distance of as much as 1.2km from the main alarm panel, meaning that you can be notified of flood waters well before they eventually reach your home or offices. Additionally, by installing flood detectors in basements, customers can benefit from crucial evacuation time for both themselves and their belongings, before the waters cause too much, irreparable damage.

FDS’ flood sensors can also be integrated into contractors, engineers and architectural practices to give rise to faster development approval rates, particularly for any developments planning on being built within a designated flood plain or potential flood hotspot.
