Water is very precious but it can cause so much damages. In this post we will present you a simple way to prevent water damages in your home with Fibaro flood sensor.
The flood sensor has the shape of a water drop. On the front, it has an indicator light. On the back, it has 3 sensitive probes, plated with gold. The probes detect water and their telescopic mechanism allows you to place the sensor on any surface.
The product also includes 2 sensors for tilt (movement over 15 degrees) and temperature. It contains an alarm siren that will warn you in case of a flood, a rapid temperature change (in case of fire for example) or tampers. The sensor is provided with a 2.5 years battery life.
The front indicator light will display RGB colors according to the events detected by the sensor :
For example, we have tested its sensor with a small leak. The light flashes and the alarm siren starts to ring.
You can add Fibaro flood sensor to your smart home with the Z-Wave protocol. Simply follow the instructions in the manual to include the sensor in your Z-Wave network. It can also be integrated in most of the alarm systems.
