Frequently asked question

Can i use this out side to detect of my pool is over flooding?

Per their web site 'Suitable for outdoor use' https://sensative.com/strips/drip/

My sensor was installed last March...I am getting notifications from several sensors that the battery life is 15%...what do I do now?

I think you have to buy a new one.

Can it survive being in large amount water and are pads reusabel after leak alarm?

Yes. You just need to dry it out between uses.

Why does the batter run out in8 months?

Mine lasted about 2.5 years. It could be based off how many times the door opens and closes

    Great form,‘extremely sensitive, leak, temp, and luminance

    About the size snd shape of cardboard fingernail file with no cords makes this easy to put anywhere. I needed a sensor under my reverse osmosis filter in the kitchen sink cabinet. There is only 1 inch from the bottom of the filter and cabinet floor, this sensor easily slipped in. The RO manufacture was nice enough to provide a free leak sensor. They were right… Good thing I was home to hear the alarm, The “easy” connectors were all to easily prone to leaking. -I’ve since upgraded the connectors. Rather than just having a useless alarm if not home, this sensor is set up to turn off the water main in the event if a leak automatically.
    This leak sensor is good for any flat surface a cardboard file can fit, no cords, no replaceable battery. They do includ a screw mount, you likely can mount this vertically but I’m not sure where the water sensor is on the unit.
    This sensor is so sensitive it can detect moisture when held un your dry hands. Is also measured temperature and luminance.
    This eadily paired to my SnartThings hub.
    I have not owned this long enough to vouch for its battery life but I have no reason to think it won’t last to at most of the 10 years they claim. All my water sensor s (of other brands) have had in readable battery life.
    I highly recommend this sensor snd this is on my buy again list.

    Once triggered as wet it stays wet several days after

    Connecting to Smartthings hub was easy. I use this to avoid water incusion in the basement from a low entry door. It was great in a recent storm and with a Smartthings action, enabled a pump as expected. However 2 days later, it is still wet as the little sponges retain water. So for my needs it’s status change is not quick enough. I am not sure if removing sponges would help, a instructions show no other way to install sensor. All other features are working as expected

    Great form factor, but one major flaw

    I was really excited when I found this product because it ticked all the boxes for me: great form factor that fits easily and discreetly under my aquarium, Z-Wave, battery that should last as long as the product itself, and a sensor that indicates the level of moisture. All good things.
    The problem is the foam padding that is supposed to conduct moisture to the sensors. It retains water so long that, once triggered, the sensor stays ‘wet’ for well over a day. Even blasting it with a hair dryer doesn’t reset it. Eventually, I had to pry the thing apart to dry off the padding and the sensors by hand. This has happened twice now. The adhesive that’s supposed to hold the unit in place on the floor is pretty much gone as a result.
    This product might be fine for leaks that are both rare and low-risk. For me, after a couple of unfortunate incidents involving my cats and the aquarium pump, I can’t wait multiple days for the sensor to dry out. I’ll have to look for something else.

    Do not waste your money. Battery life is about a year.

    I contacted their support and got an automated response to contact Amazon. Lasted one year but said in the description the battery life could be up to 10 years. One year is poor when they sell you a unit they say will last 10. I would have been ok with 5 years but one year is unacceptable. The small sponges you attach on the sides do not stay on the unit. When you use this with a Smartthings Hub, it averages the temperature of my tile floor in the bathroom to the air temperature in the house. Although it says you can turn this off it does not work. Found another unit with a replaceable 2032 battery. About the same cost. Do not waste your money on this.

    Initial Impression is good

    I added it without problem to Hubitat Elevation on the first attempt. I dropped little water on it and it worked.
    The only negative I have is that the installation instructions are not very clear, do I have to install the blue backing ? I want to put it loosely on the floor but it is sticky can I leave the protective film on to prevent it from sticking ?
    With the attached blue strip it takes many hours for the sensor to return to the dry state, which could great inconvenience when your system turns off water in the house. As most of water alarms are false positives, for example you accidentally splashed water under the sink, it could become a great hassle.
    competitors that have a few metal pins require just wiping water and you are back in business.
    I will try to update in 10 years about the claimed battery life ( if I do not forget)

    Easy install for Hubitat

    I purchased this sensor to install in my freezer to monitor temperature. The sensor joined my Z-Wave from my Hubitat very quickly and reported temperature, Wetness, humidity and light level. I was hoping this to be a long-term solution however 25 days in my battery is reporting 25% with the hub 15 ft away. Understanding this was not the intended use of the sensor I give it five stars as others reported long-term battery under normal operating conditions.
