I have a Watchdog installed for when power fails. If my power is out, so is my WiFi. How does this unit communicate when the power goes out? Am I missing something?
Asked by: TimVS
It doesn't - in that scenario you wouldn't get alerted. To actually protect your house, you need to think in terms of redundancy...find yourself an inexpensive Battery Backup for your Wifi Access Point/Router. APC is the industry leader and they are quite reasonably priced compared to the cost of a flooded basement.

How do I connect my sump pump to this? All I have is the plug that goes into the wall.
Asked by: JKC
You will connect this to the Battery Box (which also connects to the Pump). You can do it via the USB connection or the connectors on the Panel on top of the Battery Box. The Wall Plug is the power source for the Module. Just watch the Video on their web site. It shows all of this.

What type of information is available via the USB connection? Is it just that the pump(s) ran and high water or is it a more comprehensive information (battery charging, status OK, etc)? Does the unreleased Z-wave version supply the same info (I also have a z-wave network) or is it more advanced?
Asked by: Mark
I posted the original question. I wanted to take a moment to thank Gentronics for a comprehensive answer. Exactly what I was looking for. I currently have z-wave monitoring the pump, but it simply looks for the battery operated sump to run, but doesn't supply detailed info. The precise answer I was looking for. Now I decide to to go with WiFi or wait for the Z-wave version. Thanks again!

Wi-Fi Module is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 52.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from False advertising I purchased this unit to enable my Emergency Basement Watchdog to be monitored remotely. I then discovered the this WiFi unit will not work with the Basement Watchdog kits sold by Home Depot. These kits only have the cheap older control units (yellow boxes) that do not have the hardware or electronics to allow connection with the WiFi Module. To connect, you need to have the BW Big Dog Connect or the BW Special Connect kits which are not listed or sold by Home Depot Canada. They are better performing kits than the basic BW Emergency kit.

Twice the system has notified me that it had lost internet contact, and sure enough I could verify that I had a weak signal to end of basement. Put in a signal booster. Now great sig. Pulled the AC plug day after install to confirm I got a "lost AC power " warning and backup on.

I spent a whole weekend installing a Basement Watchdog Big Dog backup system and this WiFi module. Plumbing the backup pump was easy...I spent the rest of the weekend trying to get this module online. WiFi signal strength is good at the sump pump on my phone. I even went out and bought a repeater just to make sure the signal was strong enough. I followed all the instructions to the letter and it just wouldn't work. I have many other connected devices at home connected that I setup with no issues. I took this back to the store and ordered a smart outlet for monitoring the sump pump. I got that product up and running in 2 minutes. This thing was a waste of time and money.
