The battery was loose when I opened the unit and there were no tabs attached to prevent it from touching a metal surface. When I inserted it the red light never turned on. The unit became very hot and when I opened it- the plastic wrap around the middle of the battery melted off.

I think that I like this globe electric smart water leak detector. The good - it is very small and inconspicuous. It runs on a batter so no need to plug in but I am hoping that the battery is long lasting. The bad - the directions are worse than terrible. There are screws to mount it and I honestly can not figure out how. I tested it, while the buzzer went off it did not send the alert to my phone. Maybe I did something wrong but it did not work as advertised despite having the app.

They need to have better instructions on how to open the alarm and remove the tab that keeps the battery from working. Once I figure that out it was really straight forward. The Globe app installed quickly and I was able to register the device quickly and easily. I have then sensor on the floor next to the floor drain so if I have any water going down the drain from the water heater, furnace, water softener, washer or even ground water it should go off. I mounted the alarm to my furnace duct work hoping that if it ever does go off it will echo through the house.

It took “me” several attempts to get the Wi fi link between my phone, the internet and the electronic sensors to all work together, but once it started to work it quickly developed a history of wetness. I first tested it behind a toilet where I thought there was a leak . No leak just condensation on the tank. Next I am heading to the basement for a long term placement next to the sump pump. Since this is battery powered I will get readings even when the power goes out.

This was ordered online and shipped to my home without issue. This is a great little sensor that packs the needed features to be able to detect leaks in hard to reach places and while you're away. The sensor was easy to setup through the app and was pretty basic. You'll just need to sign into your home wifi and it will start the pairing process. it took about 2 minutes to set up. There is a small sensor that connects to the main sensor if you want to get this thing tucked back into a corner or under a washing machine (like we have done). The alarm itself isn't terribly loud. but the notification you will get on your device is endless and doesn't stop until you clear the notification. My only issue is the non-standard sized battery that it uses (3-volt CR2) But it's not a deal breaker or enough for me to give this product less than three stars.

I've been using water sensors for a few years now, this is at least the 5th type & brand I've tried and its easily my favorite. Stand alone water sensors are cheap and can be very loud, but have no way of notifying you if you're not within hearing range. the 'smart' ones I've tried do provide notifications, and all have had a 'siren' on them as well, but they have all been very quiet for some reason, which is further exacerbated by being in fairly hidden locations. So, this one has solved my two biggest complaints about past sensors: it's plenty loud without being obnoxious, and with the 4 foot cord connecting the base unit and the actual sensor, you can place the sensor where water might leak while keeping the actual base unit- where the alarm is located- in a much easier to reach and easier to hear location. Setup was pretty easy - I had to try adding it to the Globe app twice, but it worked the second time. I also really like that the sensor has contact points on both sides, so you can get notified if water is dripping on the top before it pools enough on the bottom to set the sensor off. It's nothing special to look at, but it is the nicest looking water sensor I've seen. One thing I would mention that I didn't find stated anywhere in the instructions - there is thin piece of plastic or coated paper between the battery and the contacts so the battery doesn't drain in shipping, this needs to be removed before the sensor will work.

Amazing little device and very useful. I think that leak detectors like this are as essential to have in your home as fire extinguishers, simply because water can cause so much property damage when it ends up somewhere it's not supposed to be. I have a few comments about this specific product: I love that it can be used by itself or with the included "remote sensor". The remote sensor is so tiny that you can place it UNDER your washing machine, for example. I wish that the cord were a couple of feet longer. Whether using the remote sensor or the sensors on the body of the device itself, they are VERY sensitive to water so it takes only a couple of drops underneath it for it to go off. You will add the sensor to your WiFi network and set up the app, etc. Install where needed (crawlspace, under sinks, washer, etc.) If it detects water it will beep and send a push alert to your phone so no matter where you are, you'll have early notice of a problem.

Very easy to set up, no tools needed.you can easily move this device from room to room depending on what you want to monitor. This device externally monitors one spot of your choice. All you need to do is first open the larger portion and pull the battery activation tab out. Hold the reset button down for 5 seconds and connect it to the Globe app on your phone. I already had a dimmer set up from Globe, so it was easy for me to quickly connect the leak detector. The leak detector is 3 parts. The wire with the little sensor attached, the battery/brain and the mount which the sensor is plugged into as well as the batter/brain clips to it. Once you hook this up-takes about 5 seconds (if that), then all left to do is to place it where you want to monitor for a water leak. one part is about 3" in diameter and the sensor is 1" in diameter. You place the sensor wherever you would suspect the water to first hit and the larger batter/brain part somewhere away from the potential wet area. the wire is about 3 feet long. You do not have to use hardware unless you want to permanently mount-double sticky tape would probably be better. I just simply place it on a shelf next to my washing machine with the sensor behind the machine where a likely leak would occur. Since Luckily I do not have any leaks, I tried immersing the sensor in water and it instantly started beeping and sent an alert to my phone. Super easy to use...works as expected. I wish the actual beeping sound at the sight of the leak was louder. Would never hear it the washing machine was actually on when the leak occurred. I guess the phone alert would come into play. Not sure how often you will need to change the battery-like a camera battery-tiny log style. It does have a low battery alert so that is nice. This is a precautionary item to help in the detection of water. I do not feel completely safe, but it is a good extra layer to hopefully help mitigate the extent of damages in the event of a leak. I like that it is very easy to move from room to room depending on what you want to monitor. Under a sink that you rarely open is good, near a water heater in an attic would be great. Not sure how hot this device can get-as my attic gets to over 120 degrees in the summer, so not sure it would work in that heat. Anyway...decent product as an extra layer of precaution.

The unit is about 2 1/2" diameter with a probe about the diameter of a quarter with a 3' foot cable attached. The holder for the electronics clips into a bracket that attaches to a wall with one screw in the center. I used 1 screw (provided) into the plastic laundry tub, and a couple of nylon cable ties to keep the wire out of the way. Double sided could be used tape since it is rather light. Do the setup before you finish the installation. You need to put you phone on your 2G network to pair the sensor to your home network! It requires a mobile application download from Apple or Google on to your phone before it works. On line registration / account set up with yet another password! I don't like their 'disclaimers' about privacy in the application, + 10 screens full of small print 'terms and conditions'! But I guess that comes with any of these internet enabled devices. They, 'Globe-electric' that is make a lot of products that are 'smart'; bulbs, dimmers, plugs / sockets / power strips, cameras and doorbells. The same application controls them all. It states it can connect with Google Home and Alexa, but I don't have either of these in use. Not found in the breif manual or phone software, but necessary information: You have to unscrew the top the sensor (about 1/8 turn) and pull out a a plastic insulator piece on the battery. The battery is a CR2 3V lithium cell. In there is a button that you need to press to enable pairing mode inside. Bridging the contacts on the sensor for several seconds causes a brief chirp on the alarm, then I received a text message advising water detected. Needs refinement on the setup / manual / on-line information guides.

Globe Electric Wi-Fi Smart Water Leak Detector Sensor is simply a game-changer for two reasons: It doesn't require a hub (much like many other smart home devices), which means the product package contains EVERYTHING you need to get it working quickly. I was able to pair the device to multiple smartphones so multiple individuals can get alerted in the event of a water leak. I think we can all agree that multiple alerts are always better in our busy lives. I installed the water sensor on the floor in close proximity to our furnace and hot water heater. Because both units are in the basement, we would not necessarily know if either was leaking for a few days. We have been thinking to install a sensor for a while but it required additional wiring or a smart hub. This requires neither of those. One of my pictures shows how I located the sensor next to the furnace and secured the transmitter bracket onto the furnace, where I can easily get to the transmitter to replace the required battery when necessary. The only down-side to the product is the audible tone it emits from the transmitter. I wish it was louder, BUT it's only meant to complement the alerts sent to your smart devices (phones, tablets, etc.) so not a big problem.
