Overview

Our take on the Samsung SmartThings Water Leak Sensor

The Samsung SmartThings Water Leak Sensor is a small wireless device that you put anywhere you want to detect water. It also monitors temperature, and alerts you to sudden changes. It talks wirelessly to the SmartThings hub, the brain of your customizable SmartThings home automation system. You can add as many compatible devices and sensors as you want, and control them all using the SmartThings Mobile app (Apple®/Android™/Windows®).

Never come home to a flooded basement again

Stay in the know

Place the water leak sensor in the basement, in the cabinet under your sink, or by your hot water heater. The moment there's water where there shouldn't be, you'll immediately receive an alert on your phone so that you can take swift action. This is especially helpful if you're away on vacation, or if you're monitoring a second home. No longer will you be surprised by ruined floors and damaged belongings.

Not a reliable sensor

Rich from PA on 8/20/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Not a very reliable product, prone to dropping offline. Not what I need for a device monitoring for water leaks. First, I ordered from Crutchfield because of the great service available. Previously I had bought the Hub and some sensors directly from Samsung but their support was non existent, did not return emails. I knew I would buy any future sensors from the folks that answer the phone and give answers.

Pros: When it works it is a great system

Cons: Different sensors randomly drop offline every couple of weeks

Crutchfield response on 8/22/2017 Rich, we're sorry you're disappointed with your sensors. Whenever you are not completely satisfied with anything you purchase from Crutchfield, please contact our Customer Support team at 1-800-955-9091. Purchases from Crutchfield can be returned or exchanged within 60 days of the purchase.

Samsung SmartThings Water Leak Sensor

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Excellent water sensor that seems very reliable and has good battery life. I have 3 of these placed throughout my home to alert me should we have a water leak. This way we'll find out right away and hopefully avert any disaster scenario (we had a water leak in our old house a few years ago and recently our neighbor up the street had one and it ruined a lot of their stuff). Water leaks can happen to anyone and these little guys will save home owners lots of headaches and $$$. Also, then you get the peace of mind knowing that your home is OK while you're away... I love it.

Samsung Smartthings looks like it will do the job. [ Richard  Dec 28, 2016 ]
I'm adding this to my humidor to have a constant view of internal humidity/temperature whether we're home, at work, or away on vacation. I can set up alerts if the cigars get too dry or too warm. [ Clinton  Apr 02, 2016 ]
What I needed and support was very helpful [ Terry  Mar 21, 2016 ]
to monitor for leaks while away for extended periods of time [ M  Mar 02, 2016 ]
We had a toilet leak into a crawl space. The notification feature was the deciding factor. [ Hugo  Dec 16, 2015 ]

1 question already asked

Yes. Smartthings support as many as you want. I would suggest name them differently though. [ Rafael  Jun 16, 2018 ]
I don't believe there is a limit on the number of Water Leak Sensors that can be added to SmartThings (this should operate similarly to the Motion Sensors). After adding the sensor, I would assign a unique name to help the user identify which sensor alarm is being triggered. [ Ben  Jun 16, 2018 ]
