Device detailed description
The leak Alert x Smart water detector is the first hubless electronic leak detector by Zircon with a magnetic body. It features a 9.8 ft (3M) cable to enable detection in hard-to-reach locations. Mount the detector onto a wall or affix to a magnetic surface with the metal sensing contacts at the end of the cable lying flat against the surface to detect any moisture. Place an infinite number of detectors in your home as each leak Alert x operates independently and can be individually named during the set-up process. Once moisture is detected, a loud (84 dB) alarm sounds an SOS, Red LEDs flash, and an email alert warning is sent via Wi-Fi to up to five email addresses until the detector is deactivated or requires a new battery. Email notifications are sent to all designated addresses every 10 minutes for the first hour after leak detection, then once every hour afterward, for the life of the battery. Uniquely name Each leak Alert x water alarm based on the location where the device is placed so the emergency email will immediately alert you of the location of the problem. Each leak detector includes an easy-to-install standard 3V Lithium battery to keep your smart water leak sensor running at optimal performance and features a low battery indicator that chirps and sends email notifications when it is time to replace the battery. Use the Wi-Fi enabled leak Alert x in any place where there is a potential for flooding or leaks, such as near water heaters, sinks, dishwashers, sump pumps, and more. This unit is the ideal leak detection solution for single family residential homes, apartments, offices, As well as HOA, multi-unit, and multi-story properties.

Frequently asked question
Hi. The cable is 9.8 ft (3 meters). Thanks.
You should be able to use it with out the Wi-Fi, but you will only get an audible alarm. So if you are too far away to hear the alarm or away from the house you will not be notified of a leak. The big advantage of the Wi-Fi connection is you will receive text and e-mail notifications if a leak occurs. Also the unit … see more You should be able to use it with out the Wi-Fi, but you will only get an audible alarm. So if you are too far away to hear the alarm or away from the house you will not be notified of a leak. The big advantage of the Wi-Fi connection is you will receive text and e-mail notifications if a leak occurs. Also the unit does a self test and sends you a weekly e-mail to let you know the battery power level is acceptable and the unit is working correctly. If the e-mail notifies you of a problem or if you do not get a status e-mail you know there is a problem and you can correct it. Without Wi-Fi if the battery dies you would never know. My unit detected a leak and alerted me to a problem while at work, I called home and had someone verify there was an actual leak. They were able to turnoff the water before more than a few ounces of water leaked, preventing any damage. So yes it will give an audible alarm, but you really want the Wi-Fi notification to work.

So far so good -- using it for early detection of sump pump failure
For my sump pump, I had been using a leak detector that just makes a beeping sound. I was using a Wyze camera to send me a notification when it detected the alarm. Unfortunately, even after adjusting the volume threshold, I was getting occasional false alarms.
In my testing of the Zircon device, it seems to work great. I’ll still keep the Wyze camera in place so I can check on the sump pump if I’m away and get an alert from the Zircon device. Setting up the email addresses is straightforward.
Many phone services enable you to send an SMS text message through an email. You can do a Google search to find out how to do this with your particular phone service.
Early detection of rising water should buy me a few hours to check on a sump pump failure. Of course, this requires electricity to work. If the sump pump fails because of a power outage, you’ll need another backup plan — such as a battery-powered or water-powered backup sump pump.09/04/2022Verified Purchase
Not too happy... arrived with a low battery
Not too happy right now. I have a very heavy refridgerator, which has been in the middle of my kitchen for the last few days making it hard to access my appliances. My leak detector is very thick, old, is not working with new batteries, and I cannot push my heavy fridge into the space without breaking it, so I bought this one with a skinner contact and wi-fi!
Installation was easy except ONE MINUTE after, I got an email saying ‘low battery’. I contact amazon and they say because it was sold by the manufacturer, I have to contact them.. and that takes two days. In other words, my refrigerator is going to be in the middle of my kitchen through the weekend and that’s even before we reach a resolution.
Will updated based on my experience with the manufacturer. Fingers crossed.07/16/2022Verified Purchase
Works 'okay' but not what I was expecting
First of all, so there is no confusion, this review is for the Zircon Leak Alert x – Smart Electronic Water Detector with 9.8′ Cable – Email, Audio, Visual alerts, Battery Included (70745). I purchased this item because over the last year or so we have had an instance of basement flooding and an instance of a water leak. Both occurred over night while we were sleeping and I was looking for something that would wake us quickly enough for us to minimize any potential damage. Unfortunately this did not turn out to be that product. My main purpose in writing this review is to alert others to a potential bit of product data that I didn’t look at closely enough – how loud the alarm is!
I assumed all these alarms were similar to smoke alarms and were loud and hard to ignore. That is not the case. When I tested this alarm I was surprised at how quiet it is. I seriously doubt it would be heard from another room if you were watching TV. It literally sounds like it doesn’t want to bother you! That’s when I went back and looked at the specs and discovered that these types of alarms are all over the place with regard to how loud they are. This particular model is listed as 84 dB. I have since purchased a different model/brand that is rated >,110 dB and the loudness is more like what I was expecting. To be fair, the Zircon alarm does work as described, although I question their use of the term ‘loud’ in describing the alarm. The WiFi was straightforward enough to setup and I was able to configure it to send a text alert to my phone. While that is helpful if we are not at home I found the audible alarm to be virtually useless (note: I did confirm that the battery was good and supplying the proper voltage).
So yes, the alarm does work but I caution you to consider your needs and be sure to compare the dB rating of any detectors you might be considering.06/28/2022Verified Purchase
