Why do I need this Monitor if I already have a battery back up?
The Monitor enables another level of protection for your sump pump system. The Monitor will notify you remotely via your smartphone, so you can have peace of mind about what is happening within your sump pump system no matter where you are. The monitor will notify you immediately when your primary pump fails, and even before your backup kicks on so you can proactively take action to fix any issues that may arise. The monitor also notifies you when you have water outside your sump basin, and extreme temperatures or excess humidity near the sump pump area which could lead to other issues within the basement or crawl space.
