Customer Questions & Answers

Will pooling water (ie. from a leak) trip the sensor or will the sensor only work if it is submerged, as in a sump?

We have a corner of our basement that gets wet during heavy storms. The amount of water is small enough that it could be sucked up with a shop vac, but still enough to do damage to carpeting. Will this sensor detect a pool of water lying on a flat surface or must the sensor be covered with water in order to trip an alarm?

how long does alarm sound?

if I'm not home till later?
Asked by: jimppi
The SK616 will send out a wireless signal and sound the integrated alarm for 45 seconds when water is detected at the probe. If the probe remains submerged in water, the SK616 will not send any signal nor sound the alarm. SK616 will reset itself once water is no longer detected at the probe (water is gone or probe is out of the water).

This is a great unit that alerts you both in the room where the sensor is set up, at the base station when the remote alarm is triggered, and on your phone when ithe base station dials out to tell alert you about a flood. The sensors go off right away, and the dialer starts calling within seconds (depending on how you set you the delay) It works perfectly in every room and now if there is a flood when we are out or vernight we can stop the water from flooding the whole house quickly. Plus you can add motion or window sensors for a total home security sytem, so its a great value. Just remember to arm the base station each time after an event so that the system is ready to go again. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from water alarm I was looking for a reliable water alarm. ... This ideal security alarm isfeature rich. You can use it as a stand alone unit or you can pair it with their auto dialer and have it call you (and anyone else you setup) if the sensor is triggered. As a stand alone unit it has a very loud siren that can also be used in conjunction with the one on the auto dialer. It comes with all the parts needed, best of all is a stencil with the screws position marked for hassle free drillingthe holes for mounting the unit. Setting up was fairly easy and wick. The product also shipped quickly and arrived really fast too. Overall my experience was great. The unit works as advertised down to calling the designated numbers.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't bother This seemed like the perfect alarm system for us. Unfortunately, one sensor never worked and due to the positioning in the basement, it barely sent a signal to the rest of the house. The ability to dial the phone was a wonderful feature. Sadly, with one sensor not working, the system was no good for us.
