Water Sensor 6.
Water Sensor 6 protects your home from leaks and floods in the easiest of ways. You place it down, set it, and forget it. Dock is a pro-tool that dramatically enhances the most important features of Water Sensor 6. With Dock and Water Sensor 6 combined, your home is protected by the most advanced Z-Wave flood sensor available.
What Water Sensor 6 does.
Monitor one area for leaks.
Battery powered only.
Simple installation: place it down.
What Dock enhances.
Monitor 2 areas.
Connect 1 or 2 of the provided spot sensors to Dock to monitor for leaks up to 1 metre away from Water Sensor 6.
Most water leak sensors let you only monitor a single area. Dock enhances Water Sensor 6 to be able to monitor 2 separate areas using spot sensors. Each sensor is a probe that can monitor surfaces, including floors, up to 1 metre away from the installation location of Dock. Only 0.1” thick, probes are perfect for remote monitoring and to monitor in exceptionally tight and hard to reach areas.
Monitor a whole area.
Connect a lasso sensor to encircle and monitor an entire area such as a hot water boiler.
While you can be sure that leaks will happen, you can’t always be sure where they will happen. That’s particularly true when it comes water tanks and boilers. While they will leak, it’s impossible to know from where they’ll leak. Dock solves that. Simply connect a lasso sensor and encircle an object completely. Wherever the leak occurs, Water Sensor 6 will then detect it.
Use a USB charger and provided cable to power Dock from a power outlet. Now Water Sensor 6’s battery acts as an emergency backup.
Dock can be powered by mains electricity. Simply plug it into a power outlet using the provided USB cable and a 5VDC, 0.5A USB adaptor; a common smartphone charger. Doing so means that Water Sensor 6 no longer needs to depend on batteries; you don’t even have to use them. But if you do, Water Sensor 6’s battery will be used as a backup battery that offers the same battery life as the sensor itself: 2 years. Plenty of time to get power restored to Dock.
Raise Water Sensor 6 using Dock and optimise the performance of its Z-Wave Plus antenna.
Water Sensor 6 uses Gen5 and Z-Wave Plus for wireless communication. It’s optimised to communicate at over 150 metres in an open space. As Z-Wave is a low-power signal however, its wireless range can be impacted by metal objects such as washing machines and fridges.
Should you be installing it near metal, Dock allows you to optimise the wireless performance of Z-Wave. Use it to install Water Sensor 6 away from metal objects while still monitoring the areas that you wanted to.
