eZLO Innovation, a Clifton-based developer of smart solutions for homes and businesses, announced it has acquired FortrezZ and DAM-it Automatic Water Control by C&S Electronics.

FortrezZ and C&S are South Carolina-based design, engineering and manufacturing firms that provide wireless automation for flood detection and damage prevention.

“We’re excited to welcome FortrezZ and C&S to the eZLO Innovation family,” CEO Mark Samuel said. “They have a tremendous track record in the area of home flood prevention, and pairing their devices with our innovative, four-pillar software platform positions us perfectly to deliver cost-effective solutions that benefit both insurers and their clients on a massive scale.”

“Water damage is one of the biggest expenses for homeowners and insurers, alike,” Steve Szasz, FortrezZ co-founder and director of sales and marketing, said. “Becoming a part of eZLO Innovation gives us the chance to scale our platform with insurance providers and builders, and  to give millions of people the peace of mind that their house will be safe from flooding, even if they’re on the other side of the world.”

Under terms of the deal, FortrezZ and DAM-it will continue to operate under the FortrezZ brand within the eZLO Innovation family.
