Know What's Happening With Your Sump Pit, Whether Home or Away

No homeowner enjoys worrying about water in their basement. Unfortunately, the threat of heavy rains, power loss or unexpected mechanical issues with a sump pump can result in the basement suddenly being under water. The Ion+ Connect is designed to minimize that worry, restoring peace of mind for homeowners, whether home or away.

More than just a cellular sump pump alarm, the Ion+ Connect is equipped to monitor the sump pit’s water level, pump status, power status, battery status and ambient temperature. With its integrated cellular module, the Ion+ Connect can communicate these measurements to homeowners on-demand via SMS/text messaging to specified cell phones, empowering homeowners to always stay current with what is happening inside their sump pit. Alerts can be set to automatically text notifications of when a critical situation arises, such as high water within the sump pit, pump failure, loss of power or low temperature. The Ion+ Connect can sense up to 12″ of water and has customizable start/stop/alert levels.

The Ion+ Connect’s reliable connectivity, monitoring and notification capabilities is especially ideal for homeowners with finished basements or vacation homes, as well as any property manager or realtors.

Ion+ Connect Features

  • Check real-time status updates for existing conditions, such as the sump pit’s water level, pump usage, power availability and ambient tempature. Users can text specific commands, including the ability to run pump tests to ensure full functionality is available.
