    peace of mind Review by slhelper
    peace of mind

    have this next to my well pressure tank in case something goes bad with it. When I tested, it promptly sent a notice to my phone. It kept sending alarms, and even sent a few after I removed it from the wet sponge. I was kind of wondering if it would stop, but it did. I'd rather have too many alarms than none! I've had zero false alarms, so all is well.

    hit and miss Review by Jim
    hit and miss

    These seem like a great idea. As others have pointed out, the case is sub-par to the point that if it sees more than 1/8" of water, you'll have to disassemble (and remove battery) to let it dry out before using it again. A simple gasket, a remote lead, or moving the battery door to the top would go a long way toward resolving this big design flaw. Otherwise, great to have the notice when water is present.

    App-wise and notification-wise, as someone else also pointed out, the frequency and repetition of the alerts are rather annoying. I get that this may be desirable if you're using this in a place you wouldn't want or expect water EVER, but we've got it near a floor drain that occasionally bubbles up and we just want to keep an eye on it - as a result, it sees more action. Having an option to remotely reset the sensor and/or tune the delivery rate of the alerts would be VERY handy.

    One star off for each of these issues, otherwise a great piece of peace of mind.

    Reliable Insteon Device Review by BigBird46
    Reliable Insteon Device

    I installed 9 of these throughout the house, all connected through my Insteon hub to automatically shut off the water supply. Very easy setup through Insteon hub. They seem to have better than average range compared to other Insteon devices and reliably shut off supply with little moisture on contacts. No reliability report but so far they seem like winners.

    Hub does not signal smartphone when water detected Review by Bari
    Hub does not signal smartphone when water detected

    At installation I called tech support and they advised that, in spite of the product description of alerts sent to smartphone, the product does NOT yet notify the smartphone. Not sure why previous users indicated that it does, maybe product has been revised. Tech support says alert only comes via email. Not good enough.

    I am sorry for any misinformation received. There are two options for receiving alerts from the device. Push notifications, which are sent to your iOS or Android phone, and emails. If you are trying to receive this as a text message, then you would need to set up an email to SMS address with your carrier. If you are not receiving the push notifications, please disable and re-enable push notification under the alerts section for the device in your app.

    The best $35 you can spend in house protection Review by Eric
    The best $35 you can spend in house protection

    With this device placed strategically around the house and used in conjunction with a Insteon I/O module and motorized ball valve, it can automatically shut off the main water line into your house to prevent massive leaks and damage.

    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.
