Z-Wave Water Sensors can be installed anywhere in your home and protect against water leaks and floods. A flood sensor gives you greater peace of mind, knowing that you will be alerted if there is any issue at home. This allows you to fix the issue before it becomes a major crisis, causing lots of damage to your home. Z-Wave flood sensors are particularly useful in hard to get places like behind washing machines, where a severe leak can go unseen for months or even years.
Many Z-Wave flood or leak sensors also have integrated temperature sensors to detect freezing temperatures that could cause a pipe to burst and therefore cause a flood. this gives you early warning of a possible issue.
