WaterCop has just released a new and upgraded Z-Wave Wireless Water & Freeze Sensor, making it easier for you to detect water leaks and prevent a potential home flood. Besides its compact size, what we like most about the new sensor is works with their Z-Wave WaterCop motor system as well as any other Z-Wave alert device.
- Works with any Z-Wave alert device
- Compatible with Z-Wave WaterCop motor
- Automatic low battery alerts
- Wireless range up to 100 feet
- Small size: 3 x 2.1 x 1.1 inches
The sensor is ideal for preventing water pipes from bursting due to freezing. If the temperature drops too low, the sensor can alert you and signal your WaterCop system to shut off the water supply, thereby preventing potential damage from burst pipes. The sensor is also perfect for detecting leaks. Even if your piping doesn’t freeze or burst, you will be able to detect any water leaks before the water can damage your property.
How the System Works
Flood sensors constantly monitor their selected areas for accumulating moisture. When a leak is detected, a sensor will send a radio frequency signal to the WaterCop unit instructing it to shut off the water supply to the home. The WaterCop valve will remain closed until it is manually reset.
The flood sensors are a battery powered device enabling it to be located anywhere a leak is likely to occur, or where water might cause damage.
NOTE: The sensor requires a Z-Wave alert device, such as the WaterCop Z-Wave Electric Actuator Motor (sold separately).
