Water damage is the most common cause of insurance claim in North America, and can often cost tens of thousands of dollars to repair. WSS’ water detection product is an easy-to-use water detector which gives you peace of mind by alerting you to leaks before damage occurs! Avoid or minimize damage from faulty appliances, burst pipes, sewer backups, leaky roofs, heavy rainfall, overland flooding, and more. When the sensor makes contact with water there are 3 different notifications:
- Loud 69-120dB alarm is triggered, and will continue to sound until the sensor is dried or the battery discharges
- Email notifications
- Text message notifications
Email and text notifications are provided through WiFi and/or a 4G modem that is embedded in the module. This enables notification of flood or leaks even when no one is home to hear the alarm or in areas of the home where there is no wireless connectivity through WiFi.
Simply install a 1.5-volt battery (not included), place the sensor on the floor, and make sure the sensors LED link lights are green (see user manual for more instructions). Use it wherever leaks might occur: near hot water tanks, dishwashers, washing machines, sinks and drains. Especially useful where they are hard to detect, like slow drips behind appliances or under a hidden drain pipe! Depending on the frequency of the connection and messages configured, the battery life can last for up to 2 years.
