Flood & Temperature Sensor
SKU Code
Gain the peace of mind and the protection you expect. Water damages are caused by leaking pipes, corroded water heaters, water storage tanks, fixtures in bathrooms, laundry rooms, refrigerator drip pans etc. Place this sensor in areas near water consuming appliances and drains. If a leak occurs, water will puddle and wet the sensor, triggering an alarm. The Sensor will notify the Z-wave controller that a flood has been detected. Paired with our Water Valve, these units will automatically signal the water to shut-off, eliminating any further damage from occurring.
