This Z-Wave enabled Wirelss Water and Freeze Alarm monitors your home 24-hours a day for leaking pipes, corroded water heaters, fixtures in bathrooms and laundry rooms, automatic water and ice dispensers, and other appliances that could cause water damage. Upon the detection of water or freezing temperatures, this device will send out a water leak alert on our Z-Wave network. The ZWCFS100 sensors are much more effective at protecting your home against water damage when used with a WaterCop Z-Wave Automatic Shut-Off Valve (Sold Separately), but not needed. Using the ZWCFS100 that has not been included with a Z-Wave network will still notify you of leaks (audible alarm does not sound for temperature alerts) using the audible alarm. This unit is battery powered and will send an alert throughout the Z-Wave network at regular intervals when a low-battery condition, in addition, an audible "chirp" will sound to alert you of a low battery within the water and freeze alarm.
Built into this sensor is a 85 decibel siren. This siren will sound an 82 decibel audible alarm and will send an alert message to the Z-Wave network (If already included in a Z-Wave network). Pressing and performing a 2-second hold on the Program switch will clear the Water Alarm. When freezing temperatures are detected an alert message is sent to the Z-Wave network. No audible alert will occur. With a Z-Wave gateway or the appropriate web-enabled Z-Wave controller, you will be able to check the status of this sensor remotely as well as receive text message via smartphone or email messages whenever an alert is sent. Install this sensor under sinks, next to sump pumps, water heaters, laundry rooms, bathroom floor, storage area, garage, utility sink, vacation/recreation homes, boats, etc.

Review of 71627
Save your money! First device the alarm did not work. I had to pay for shipping back the defective unit only to receive a second unit that the alarm did not work on. Not wanting to pay for shipping again I tested it on my z-wave network. I set it up to send a text on alarm but it only sent it after I reset the alarm by physically pressing the reset button on the unit!? By that point my basement would be flooded. Absolutely useless product!
