Frequently Asked Questions
What is a flood sensor?
Flood sensors detect the presence of water in homes and commercial properties. Water sensors allow property owners to identify potential leaks and flood situations before they get too serious, preventing costly water damage.
Where do you place a flood sensor?
You will need to place your sensor close to the ground to detect pooling water. You should also focus on areas of your property that are more prone to flooding such as bathrooms, basements and garages.
How does a flood detector work?
Not all detectors work in the same way, but in general flood sensors work by monitoring the electrical resistance between two contacts. When water is present, the resistance between the two contacts changes, activating the alarm and warning users of a potential leak.
