The Scout Water Sensor continuously monitors for flooding, leaks and any other type of unwanted moisture in your home. When the Water Sensor detects moisture it will trigger an environmental alarm, which will send notifications whether your system is armed or disarmed.
If your water sensor does not pair within 3 minutes of pulling the battery tabs, please follow these directions to perform a factory reset on your sensor
The water sensor's light will flash, the pairing bars will fill and the hub will chirp to indicate the sensor is paired.
The water sensor's status will change from Dry to Wet after its sensing probes has come in contact with water. Ensure you are placing water on one of the four probes; if you are using the wire connected probe, make sure the chord is firmly placed in the sensor.
Water sensors cannot be added to modes because they trigger Environmental alarms, rather than intrustion alarms. Environmental alarms trigger notifications whether your system is armed or disarmed; this ensures that you'll be made aware of leaks or flooding right away.
All Admins at your location will receive a push notification if moisture is detected by the water sensor.
