    Peace of mind Review by Amelia
    Peace of mind

    These work well to give you peace of mind. Thankfully I haven't had a leak yet, but they are easy to install and give you alerts so you don't have to worry :)

    Water Sensor that's not water proof Review by Mark B
    Water Sensor that's not water proof

    I put this in my basement to sense if the floor got wet. Well it got VERY wet in that corner, in fact the sensor was sitting in half an inch of water. Not only did it not work, now I have a $35 piece of junk. Why not have the sensor pins on a separate probe which can be safely immersed in water and run a wire to the electronics box which can be safely mounted high and dry?

    I'm going to replace it with the Water/Moisture Sensor, Item # 71940 and connect it to a Insteon I/O Linc module, Item # 2450. More expensive, but this seems like a MUCH more reliable solution.

    Very Poor Product Review by Mark
    Very Poor Product

    The one I ordered never worked at all. It was recognized as a sensor on my Insteon network, but never signal a 'leak' even when the base was complete immersed in water. Shorting the two sensors pins with a wire didn't even cause it to signal. I've been quite happy with Insteon products -- most all of my home automation devices are Insteon products -- but this one sucks.

    bad design Review by FL_cloudly
    bad design

    as previous reviewer commented: once water hits one of these sensor's they are toast. Who designs a non-waterproof leak sensor.

    I bought a 6 pack. 2 are toast. One never signaled, and I don't know how the "heartbeat" feature works, because both died and I never got anything. The water flow was so big it was causing damage already; that was my alert. One was found submerged and the other got wet.

    Right now the insteon app says they are dry even though they are dead.

    another design flaw is if it does signal a leak it will hammer your phone every 60 seconds or less. They should allow to be able to dial up and down the frequency.

    Helpful Review by jmight

    I have four of these in various locations in the facility that I manage, they are all tied in with remote valves, they respond well to wet situations.

    Leak Detected! Review by TominNH
    Leak Detected!

    Easter morning I was greeted wit a leak alert. Sure enough, we have a pin hole leak in our fresh water line. No damage is done due to the quick alert of this device. Well worth the investment!

    one big flaw Review by skywatcher
    one big flaw

    I got 6 of these. They pair with the Hub fine, and can be queried using the iOS app without problem. They have also signaled leaks as expected. However, when I had a leak, water got into the leak sensor and destroyed it -- rather a bad design flaw, in my opinion.

    Works Great Review by Scott
    Works Great

    These work as advertised. A week after I installed on in my laundy room, I received an alert. I had a leaking hot water connector. This save me a disaster as my laundry is on the second floor.

    Some changes Review by Patrick
    Some changes

    I received a few of these Leak Sensors a few weeks ago. Information on the forum indicates that the latest firmware requires the user to press on the set button to restore the wet state to dry.

    Previous versions of this sensor upon a wet condition would return the sensor to a dry state once the area was clear of any standing water. Having used both sensors with the two different behaviors I could go either way.

    What is shocking is none of this information was shared with the public, tech support, or sales. If your company intends on changing how a product operates, behaves, or reacts. You need to publish this information so its not going to be a complete shock and surprise to the end user!

    Over all its still a great product which includes the heart beat feature which is really a must. Comes with a 10 year lithium battery so that offers lots of value too. This sensor needs to be adjusted in price though because when it first came out it was listed as $26.XX.

    Last years X-MAS sale had them going for less than $18.XX a piece! Costco also had them in 4 packs which came out to be $25.XX a piece. Lets pass along some of the saving to the customers who have supported the brand.

    Saved the day! Review by Edgarvb6
    Saved the day!

    Well, I just finished installing a new water softener in the house. During the installation as you know, the water needs to be turned off. Well I did that, forgetting that the HVAC humidifier (located in the attic) was still active. Long story short, on startup the system fills up and traps air, our city water pressure is 75psi. You do the math, at around 2:30am the night after the softener was installed, the compression tubing for the humidifier popped off the fitting and started to leak. Remember, the humidifier feed the system in the attic. With the water pressure, the tubing was pushed back into the house and started leaking freely in the laundry room. Guess what, that's where the Insteon leak sensor was placed. This little unit saved the day!!! I realized that we had a leak when I tried to brush my teeth this morning with no water. I interface this unit with my home automation PLC and with this combination, when there's a leak Insteon shuts the valve and my home PLC turns off the hot water heaters, softener, and humidifier.

    This is a no brainer, I have three installed and I need three more...

    Thanks Insteon!
