Hedge Customer Reviews

“Happy user!

I’ve had the app and Hedge devices for the last year. The communication is dynamic following a triggered alarm. We were saved from a large potential loss when a leak was detected under our wash machine. Highly recommended product!”

“HOT WATER HEATER LEAK

We had a hot water heater leak at 1am in the morning the day before we went on vacation. The Leak Sensor detected it right away. I’m very pleased with this capability as it saved us from a potentially costly mess.”

“Hedge has already saved me time, money, and frustration…

… by detecting a small intermittent leak in my freezer’s ice machine. The sensor let out an audible beep, sent notifications to my phone, and I even received a call to notify me of the water detection.”

Meet the Hedge Packages

Our Prevent and Protect Packages are your “foundation”: you must choose one before adding on devices to customize your Hedge system. Both packages help you keep an eye on your home when you’re not there and proactively protect against theft, fire, and water damage.

What Happens If My Phone Is Off Or I’m Not Near It?

Enter: 24/7 Issue Escalations! We’ve thought about that too. We understand that you might not always be available to receive a Hedge App notification on your phone. That’s why Hedge includes a 24/7 issue escalation process — at no additional cost or monthly fee.

In the event of “high-priority” events — your smoke or carbon monoxide detector going off, or water accumulation — the escalation process will activate, and a series of additional notifications, texts, and calls will be made to you and other users on your account, followed by your emergency contact. The escalation process deactivates when you open your Hedge App, signaling you’re aware of the potentially problematic event.
