The Fibaro Flood Sensor is designed to either be placed on the floor or a wall with the gold-plated water-sensing probes extended by a connected wire. The device can be battery powered, or use 12/24 VDC supply. Built-in tilt sensor reports any movement of the device. The Fibaro Flood Sensor is buoyant and can float. A built-in temperature sensor can alert you of changes in temperature, which can protect your home from damage caused by frozen pipes. Easy integration with Vera.
