Essential Info

The risk of water damage in a home is high. In fact, it is one of the most common home insurance claims. Every year millions of homeowners suffer billions of dollars in losses. But these losses can be reduced or even avoided altogether with the new INSTEON Leak Sensor. Leak Sensor alerts you so you can stop the leak before damage to your home occurs. Simply add as many sensors as you'd like to an INSTEON Automation Controller (sold separately) and get instant alerts delivered via text/email to your smartphone. The INSTEON Hub also allows you to add cameras for remote monitoring, motion sensors, door/window sensors and of course control over lighting and appliances in your home. For more advanced applications, consider HomeRunner RBI or mControl. Together with a leak sensor you can use a INSTEON I/O Linc Low Voltage / Contact Closure Interface to activate a whole-home water shutoff valve. When the leak sensor detects water, it can trigger the I/O Linc to automatically activate and instantly close the valve to prevent any further water leakage and damage. By adding multiple sensors, you can monitor leaks throughout your home and immediately shut off the main water supply should water be detected. These solutions also provide text/email alerts as well as more advanced conditional programming. 
The use of an automated water shutoff valve with leak sensors may qualify you to receive a discount on your home owner's insurance.


INSTEON Leak Sensor and Water Shut-Off Valve Application: This easy to use, battery powered leak sensor can provide the early detection necessary to prevent leaks from creating major damage to your home. The INSTEON Leak Sensor installs quickly and easily - no need to run wires or drill holes. Simply place the sensor near where water leaks may occur. Some common places are:

  • Washing machines
  • Toilets
  • Water heaters
  • Sinks
  • Refrigerators (water filters)
  • Dishwashers
  • Basements
  • Water Softeners

Please Note:  At least one Insteon Dual Band device is required to allow communications between RF only Leak Sensors and power line only I/OLinc modules used with water shutoff valves.  Please contact us if you need additional information. 

More Info

Simple Design Other leak sensors on the market require running wires or drilling holes, the INSTEON Leak Sensor is an all-in-one design. This makes it super simple to install and ideal for placing in tight areas.

Long Lasting Battery Life A lithium battery is included with the INSTEON Leak Sensor and will provide over 10 years of operation. To add a level of security, the sensor also features a "heartbeat" signal which is sent daily. This can be used by central controllers and/or cloud services to notify you that the sensor is still functioning or in the absence of the signal that there is a problem.

Expandable Start with one, grow to dozens if you wish. INSTEON also offers motion and open/close (door/window) sensors.
