mydlink Wi-Fi Water Sensor.
Keep your home protected–no matter where you go!
We travel often and whenever we do, we make sure we leave appliances unplugged and everything as secure as possible. We are also very lucky to have a great family who is vigilant and great neighbors. When it comes to securing one of your biggest investments, you need to think about your options. That means we have a solid security system but, what happens if there is a leak?
Unfortunately, my security system won’t alert me of a leak. When I had the chance to try out the D-Link WiFi Sensor, I was stoked. This is a great solution whether we are thousands of miles away or if we are at home.
How it Works.
It is quite simple actually, you find a spot wherever you suspect there could be a potential leak. Plug it in and let it do its magic. We all know how disastrous a water leak can be and how much damage it can leave in its wake. Being alerted and stopping the leak before it gets to that point can save you TONS of money.
Water Detection – Cable detects water for easy placement around washers, sump pumps and water heaters.
Push Notification – Receive smart alerts on your smartphone when water is detected.
Setup– Easy set up with the mydlink Home app.
Connectivity – Easily connects to your existing Wi-Fi network.
See It In Action!
The built-in siren is loud enough to alert you to a leak when you’re home. But, if you are not at home, the mydlink Wi-Fi Water Sensor will send push notifications to your iOS or Android device. We tested it out by dipping the sensor into water and lo and behold–it sent an alert to my iPhone in 30 seconds!
Leaks don’t always happen near an available outlet, that’s why they’ve designed their 1m extension cable. It can be extended even further using any Standard RJ-11 phone cable.
Pick a Spot.
This summer, we had a problem with our water heater leaking. If I hadn’t gone in there by chance, it would have eventually leaked much, much worse. We decided to place our mydlink Water Sensor in the laundry room and use the extension it comes with for more reach. Now, when I travel, I know that I am covered. The house is secure, appliances unplugged and now safe from water leaks! Not only that, I am connected at all times.
No Leak Out of Reach.
Did you know that the average cost to repair water damage is $2,1751. This sensor can save you money! You can purchase this <mydlink Wi-Fi Water Sensor
