Taking care of families, businesses, and communities by providing peace of mind and safeguard from hidden threats.
How We Started
LIKK Technologies was founded in early 2015. After one of our founders, Nicolas, suffered multiple severe water damages caused by units as far as seven whole stories above his, he wanted to find a solution so that this would not happen to him again. He tried to find a product in the market that could monitor and report water leaks and flooding in all the apartment units and common areas in his building. But there was nothing. While there were products in the market that could help with monitoring water leaks inside his own home, they were costly and only monitored the immediate area where it was placed. And he certainly was not able to convince his neighbors—where the leaks began—to buy them.
This is when and how LIKK was born.
Nicolas enlisted the collaboration of the other founders, Ronald, Alberto and Peter, to conceptualize a technology and service that would specifically meet the scale requirements of a water detection system for multi-story and multi-unit buildings and communities. After 18 months of product and software development and market research and validation, LIKK signed its first service agreement in mid-2016 to pilot its LIKK h2o system, in a 240-unit luxury condo building in Miami, with over 3,000 sensors installed and under 24/7 monitoring. All happy residents of that building have stayed dry since then.
