Crutchfield: Samsung SmartThings home automation
Our take on the Samsung SmartThings Water Leak Sensor by Crutchfield's Kramer Crane
Never come home to a flooded basement again
Receive an alert on your phone the moment there's water in your basement.
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®).
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.

Well constructed, compact device that works well. Range, fo me, is fine. Only wish is for an option to use a sensor connected to this device by a short wire instead of the terminals embedded in its base.

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 ]

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 ]
