Device detailed description

Monitor for water leaks and extreme temperatures within a selected area with the FortrezZ Z-Wave Plus Flood and Temperature Sensor (U.S.). This small box sensor lies flat near any water-using appliances and fixtures, such as your water heater, sink, or washing machine, to detect leakage as soon as it occurs. When water touches the two sensing probes on the bottom of the device, the sensor sends a wireless alert signal to your Z-Wave controller. This allows you to receive remote alerts and identify the exact location of the leak if you’re using multiple sensors. The sensor also detects ambient temperature with its internal thermometer. Use the sensor to detect intense heat/cold or frozen pipes in the room or enclosure it is placed in. The temperature sensor has a default setpoint, which can be adjusted for custom temperature detection. Detection range extends from 14 to 158 degrees F (-10 to 70 degrees C). The reporting time interval can also be adjusted to avoid draining the battery too quickly. The Flood and Temperature Sensor is a Z-Wave Plus certified product. SPECS: Manufacturer Part Number: FTS05US. Power: 2 AA alkaline batteries (not included). Battery Life: 1 to 2 years with no alarms in default Z-Wave network settings.

Frequently asked question

Will this work with the 'Vera Lite' unit?

Yes, this is a Z wave device and does have a US frequency version for US Z wave. We have several working with my fantastic Vera device. Very happy with My water/freeze sensors and my Vera’s!

Can you use this device to just sense water temperature without the leak detection?

It supplies both and you can use what data you like. These are z wave devices we use in our remote home.

    I've ordered 2 of these Flood Sensors Twice and none of them sensed water!

    I have 9 Fortrezz WWA20AA’s. They all work great. My first time ordering the 2 FTS05US I tested them and they did not sense water. When I took the case apart and exposed the prongs to water they did work. After assembling the case, they did not sense water. I called Fortrezz and the tech said they must be defective. I sent them back and then about a month later ordered 2 more of the FTS05US Flood sensors. They also did not work with the case assembled. I don’t know if the prongs don’t extend far enough out of the case or there is some other problem. I’ve given up on these for the time being. After reading other reviews, I tried connecting one of them to my Trane Home system with no problem. The only problem is that none of these 4 Flood sensors actually sensed water while they were assembled.

    Stay away - it's junk.

    This is one of the worst z-wave device I ever got. Hard to configure, losing connection every a couple of hour even on short distance, Advertised as Z-wave plus but works as previous version. It might be a hardware issue. Do yourself a favor and don’t buy it.

    Needs to be really close to hub

    Tried in a few locations but this has a really weak antenna. Cant put it where flooding would start and Trane hub does not seem to recognize the device.

    Easy inclusion to Zwave network with Vera.

    Added to network in a few minutes using Vera app. Detected test leak twice on countertop and sent out notification within seconds. Reports temperature. Set additional notifications for low temp and battery on Vera website. So far so good.

    Accurately Reports Temperature & Leak Conditions and Will Close Fortrezz Water Valve

    This product works as specified with the Nexia Home Automation Bridge, reporting Temperature & Leak Alert conditions. I have this next generation Z-Wave Plus device installed with Fortrezz 1st Generation Devices and they all work with the same capabilities.
