Flood sensor – Prevents unpleasant surprises

Leaking water can cause extensive damage in a short time. This can be prevented by detecting the danger and closing the leak in time. The Fibaro flood sensor detects leaking water promptly and reliable and alarms with its integrated alarm siren. Thanks to Z-Wave wireless networking the alert will be sent also to My Cloud™ Smart Home Center which triggers further actions. Therefore lights can start blinking causing an optical alarm and a push notification can be sent to your smartphone. Using a magnetic valve with connected Z-Wave switch relais enables the My Cloud Smart Home system to react automatically interrupting water flow.

Thanks to its flexible golden telescopic probes the Fibaro flood sensor also works on rough surfaces. Furthermore it detects and reports fast temperature increase or drop. Thus the integrated temperature sensor can be used also as fire alarm sensor as well as frost monitor.
