A remote water monitoring and alert system...
that workers will actually use

A proven leader in wireless remote communications, Silversmith Data introduces HYDRALERT™, the industry's most innovative remote monitoring of fire hydrants, alerting municipalities of vandalism, theft, and the presence of water. These Cost-effective units save time, save money, and ultimately, improve safety. HYDRALERT will prove itself to be indispensable in hydrant monitoring.


Accidents, vandalism, theft, and freezing temperatures can compromise hydrant function in an emergency. And unauthorized access to water can lead to critically low water pressure and millions of dollars in annual losses.
Silversmith's HYDRALERT is appropriate for municipalities of all sizes, as well as hydrant manufacturers. Utilities, industrial and business parks, and university campuses also benefit from this technology.
