Q:Does this give a notification to the phone if the batteries are low? How do I integrate this into a Ring alarm ? I’m planning on mounting the sensor inside a sump. Is it okay if the sensor (not the control part which will be outside) gets fully submerged?

1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hello WJ00. Thank you for your question. You can check the battery level of the sensor in the app: Devices tab > Sensor > Battery %. The alarm should be placed in a dry place. Once the water-sensing metal comes in contact with water the app will send you a push notification, for example, “Leak has been detected in the laundry room". We are unable to know if our products will work with other systems as we are unaware of their functionality or pertaining software. Swann does not recommend or provide support for third-party products, over which we have no control in its use or design. Hope this helps. LV - Swann Team

    Q:Compatible with 5G internet?

    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Hello BradC. Thank you for your question. Our products only connect to 2.4GHz Wi-Fi bands, not 5GHz ones. The reason is that 2.4GHz provides a longer range and extra bandwidth which is more suitable for a security camera. Most cameras in the market only offer 2.4GHz connections, though a small number offer both Wi-Fi bands as an option. Hope that helps. LV - Swann Team

          pretty simple to use with a decent app
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Swann's leak alert sensor is straightforward. There's an itty bitty teeny tiny screw that you need to manage with an included micro-screwdriver, but other than that, you pop in batteries, download an app, get everything synced to your WiFi network and you're done. The device will alert once or twice as you set things up and if you make contact with the sensor with your fingers/body, but it seems to perform as expected. Set it and forget it!

            A Great Little Device, Overly Difficult Setup
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] A few years ago, my family experienced a flood in our basement – we came home to about a foot of water, after an older sump pump failed. Almost everything in the basement was a loss… over 10k worth of memories lost. Insurance covered half that. To avoid a similar situation, we installed a full mitigation system… full french drain surround, two sump pumps with backup pumps, and battery backups on both setups. But, a repeat situation is always in the back of my mind. When the rainy season hits in Spring in Central PA and the pumps start up again, I continually check them to ensure they’re in good shape. When the power goes (even temporarily), I come close to breaking a sweat. Where am I going with this story? For the longest time, I wanted a monitoring system that would allow me to keep tabs on the pumps in our house, without actually having to physically check them. I didn’t know that wireless leak monitors existed. So, when I came across the battery powered, wireless, Swann Leak Alert Sensor, which allowed me to monitor the pumps (or more accurately the failure of the pumps and any resulting water that starts to creep up in the basement), I jumped on it. What follows are my experiences with the device… setup, installation, and use. For a TL; DR, please skip to the last paragraph. In the box you get instructions and other paperwork, one 3M sticky double-sided sticky foam (which adheres to the back of the device to allow you to mount the main unit – which is not waterproof – above any potential leak/flood area), three 3M cable route tabs, the main unit and waterproof sensor, two AAA batteries, and a mini screwdriver to remove the main unit’s housing cover, allowing you to install the batteries. The main unit (at 3.15” x 1.65” x .80”) has a small footprint (a good thing when you’re trying to fit the setup in a tight space). The sensor is much smaller (about 1.5” x 1” x .75”). The cable that leads to the sensor is 6’3” (generously sized, ensuring that only the waterproof sensor will be submerged, and not the main unit, should a leak occur). After giving the device the “once-over,” I went straight to the instructions. The instructions are clear… but need some work. The very first part of the instructions, after the overview is “BATTERY INSTALLATION.” Note that you don’t slide the housing away from the cable. You must lift the lid up (as shown in the instructions). Having said this… please learn from my efforts and do the following, conducted with an Android phone. ***Pull the security screw and lid off the device housing. (Do not insert the batteries.) ***Turn the device lid over (the QR code needed, alluded to nowhere else, is on the lid’s underside). ***Download and install the app. (Do not open the app yet. Also, you must install the app. The device does not have a built-in siren/alarm. Although you can purchase a separate alarm and pair the alarm with the device). ***Disable mobile data on your phone; and, if your wireless router has a 2.4Ghz and other channels (e.g., 5Ghz and 6Ghz) to make setup as easy as possible, make sure that your phone is on your 2.4Ghz WiFi channel, as the device only supports 2.4Ghz. (This step is crucial for the main unit to see and use your WiFi connection during app setup). ***Start the app and run through the process. (When you get to the QR code step, you must enable camera access. You cannot do a device manual setup. There is no Leak Detector selection in the list of the devices. ***When the app set up prompts you, insert the batteries.*** A blue light on the device will pulse to let you know the device is in pairing mode. Also, if the app can’t find your router (mine couldn’t), choose the manual option to enter your network SSID and password). ***After the app confirms that the leak detector is set up, you should be good to go. ***Make sure that the app sees your device. When the app sees your device put the lid and security screw back on/in the housing. ***Re-enable your phone’s mobile data. Once setup completes, the device appears in the Swann app as “armed.” The app provides a summary of events (i.e., leak detected [number], leak fixed [number], and total activities number]). I did the device pairing on a desk, away from water. Why is this noteworthy? 13 seconds after the device was armed, the app indicated that a leak was fixed. At 22 seconds, the app indicated that a leak was detected (again, no water near the sensor). At 31 seconds, the app indicated that the leak was fixed… ummm, what leak? Maybe the device was performing a diagnostic of some sort. Interestingly, the in-app modes (Home, Night, and Away… Home is the default and was enabled) are set to send push notifications when a leak is detected and/or cleared (the only notification options available for all three profiles). I received no notifications - by phone or by email. The app also provides a Settings section. Here you can purchase premium plans (not necessary for basic monitoring), pair other Swann devices (e.g., a siren, as the device doesn’t have an onboard siren), and/or view your paired device’s information and/or edit certain information. The Settings section is helpful. It shows the device status, battery life, WiFi SSID and signal strength. You can remove the selected device from the Settings area and view other technical data… including model, software version, MAC address, and IP address. There seems to be no way to force update firmware. One point of interest, the device is 6ft from the router at this point. The settings show the device with an 88% signal reception strength. Again, I intend to use the leak detector in my basement, next to my sump pump pit (about 15ft) down (through a wood floor and subfloor) and to the right of where I currently sit. I was concerned about the signal strength given the distance, but, fastforwarding, once I set the device in the basement, the signal actually increased to 92%. To test whether the device detects a leak (and to see how it reacts to the situation), I placed the sensor in a flat-bottomed plate on a level surface. I exited the app (as I’m not likely to have the app open when a leak hits). I used a small watering can to pour water, slowly, in the plate and see when/if the sensor detected a leak. As soon as water touched the sensors, the blue light on the detector lit and, less than a second after, the app sent my phone and email a notification. Truly impressive. Now, to test how well the device sees the issue as resolved. I soaked up the water with a towel so as not to disturb the sensor. Despite the water soaking up, a pool remained around the sensor’s feet (sort of expected). So, the leak didn’t appear to be fixed until I lifted the sensor and the pool dissipated. Once I cleared the pool, the app indicated (via push notification and email) that the leak was fixed. For my use, the sensor will sit flush, slightly off a sump pump cover. Given the sensors are just a hair shorter than the sensor housing’s feet (which they really need to be to detect a leak as quickly as possible), there’ll have to be less than a 16th of an inch of water over the run of the entire basement floor before the sensor trips (unless there’s a sudden rush of water that hits the sensors). But, it’s better than the foot+ water we came home to years ago. Overall Thoughts: In the box you get everything you need for a solid device with a small footprint. The device and app works… and, once set up, works well. In my tests, the sensor picked up a simulated leak instantly and sent push notifications to my phone and email within crucial seconds. The device didn’t see the simulated leak fix due to water remaining trapped between the device’s feet (at least until I lifted the device, releasing the water from between the feet). Device pairing to your phone and WiFi network can prove VERY daunting if you don’t conduct setup in a very specific way (not indicated by the included printed instructions). Setup will likely prove frustrating for people not willing to “tinker” and may result in folks returning the device without realizing just how well it works. The app is easy to use and is intuitive. While there is no onboard siren/alarm (meaning you must use the app and set up a Swann account to receive app/email push notifications), you can purchase a separate siren and/or tie the device to other Swann devices and premium plans. Premium plan purchase isn’t necessary though, as the device works OOB. For my purposes, the Swann Leak Alert Sensor is a great little device… needed for a number of years now. When our sump pumps are running full-tilt, and I can’t be home to monitor potential floods, the Swann will provide much-welcomed peace of mind. The convoluted setup deserves a 3-star rating. But the device offers a 5-star experience. We’ll split the difference at a 4-star, which is still a solid rating for a good device.

              Peace of mind
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is such a cool little device! It was easy to download the app and sync it up. I tested it out and immediately got an alert on my phone that it had detected water. You get another alert once it's dry. I put one next to my water heater, so it's nice to know I'll get notified immediately if there is ever a leak. It has a battery, so you can put it anywhere and doesn't need to be plugged in.

                Excellent product
                Had bought 4 of the leak detectors!! Put three of them in certain areas in the house!! Had a new countertop and sink installed in our kitchen!! When I installed the garage disposal, we were in a rush to get it done because we had to leave to go to visit a friend!! And because of not be able to connect the dishwasher after a few days !! The dishes were added up and my wife wanted to get the dishwasher connected and turned on while we left!! I had the fourth detector and thought that I better connect it up. I was not comfortable of my plumbing work. lol!! Good thing I did!! Got over to our friends house and got a message that water was detected!! I call my neighbour and he rush over and found water coming from the connection to the disposal to dishwasher!! Wow!! Thank goodness for the Swann leak detection!! Thank you Swann !!

                  Wanted to use this in a window that faces the front porch to alert when someone is coming to the front door. However it became an alert when someone walked by inside the house even at an oblique and did not alert on anyone on the porch.

                  Great water leak sensor
                  I just bought this after hearing about the very large number of braided flexible hose failures! These hoses are used on flic taps, toilet cisterns etc. Failure can flood the entire house if not detected! Like holiday homes etc. The device couldn't have been easier to setup using the Swann Security App. Make sure of WiFi signal strength in the devices location before sticking to surface. WiFi signal strength can be seen in the App under the "Settings" cog then under the device name. It does take a while to show any signal changes.

                    Reasonable price, and easy to initialize and make operational. My only disappointment is that there is no "email Notification" feature. I get a notification on my phone, but I would like to have had the opportunity to have a notification sent to my email as well. If the system had email notification I would give it 5-out-of-5 stars!
