While all flood sensors can help prevent water damage, the Ecolink Flood/Freeze Sensor is one of the few that sends alerts when the temperature reaches 41F or lower - the danger zone for freezing and bursting pipes. Just connect the sensor to your Z-Wave hub to set up text/email notifications about the device’s activity all winter long. Create custom rules for the sensor with your hub’s app interface: trigger a Z-Wave siren when water is detected unexpectedly. Pair the sensor with a Z-Wave valve controller to shut off the water main automatically.
The device comes with a 36” external probe, giving you easy access to those pesky areas prone to leaks. It’s easy to mount in a wide variety of spaces and configurations, and it comes with all the hardware you need to mount the sensor and probe. Don’t worry about having to access the device too often; you can expect the sensor’s battery to last up to 5 years with average use. It also features Z-Wave Plus for longer range and a 2-year warranty period that keeps you protected.
It’s best to include the sensor from the location you plan on installing it so your Z-Wave hub can find the best communication route to the device. Put your Z-Wave hub into inclusion mode (see your hub’s manual, as each brand is different) and insert the battery into the sensor, making sure the battery is oriented correctly. Once the device is successfully included, it will appear on your hub’s device list.
Once you’ve confirmed that device is included to your network, mount the sensor to a flat, dry surface using either the included screws or adhesive tape. It’s important to mount the sensor in a place that will remain dry even in a water leak scenario. Next, mount the probe to a flat, dry surface that is most likely to be exposed to water if a leak occurs.
