What is the water leak detector designed for?
The water leak detector is designed to detect water (leaking water pipes, leaking washing machine, rain storm, basement flooding, sump pump etc.). The detector is not designed for security applications.
Which smartphones are compatible with the application?
The detector is compatible with iOS rev. 6.0 and higher. The detector is compatible with ANDROID rev. 5.0 and higher.
Which models of the water leak detector are available?
The detector is manufactured in one version:
a) S4H-WLD-0x detector with power supply from two alkaline LR6 AA size batteries (included), or from an external power source by USB micro 5VDC cable (not included)
Both pins of the probe must be above the monitored water level. The probe may be securely mounted to a structure. It is important the contacts remain above the monitored surface.
How many probes can be connected to a detector?
Two probes can be connected to one detector. One probe is included with purchase. Additional probes may be purchased separately at www.smart4house.net
How is the second probe connected?
The first probe is connected to terminals 1 and 2. The second probe is connected to terminals 3 and 4. The polarity of wires is not important. Activation of the second probe is required and is completed within the application following initialization of the device.
Detectors must be placed within WiFi range of the AP/router (Access Point). Best placement is in a dry area with temperature ranges from 0-40°Celcius or 32 - 104°Farenhiet.
What batteries may I use?
Two (2) AA alkaline or lithium batteries. They must be installed correctly. Correct position and polarity is marked on the product label located on the removable cover.
How long can the detector operate on a set of batteries?
Up to 12 months.
Do I have to monitor battery life?
No. Battery charge is continuously transmitted to you via the app. Should the battery voltage drop to below 20%, your detector will alert you. Do not leave discharged batteries in the device!
Is it possible to detect other liquid that is not water?
No. The detector is designed for the conductance of normal water not exceeding the range of 5mSm-1.
How do I check the signal to the AP is strong enough?
Your smart phone or tablet displays an icon showing signal strength. Simply place your smart phone towards the detector verify signal strength through the APP.
Do I need an activated SIM card to receive the information from the detector?
A SIM card is not required if connected to a WiFi network. If no WiFi network is available, a SIM with an activated mobile data plan is required. Transmissions use Apple’s Push Notification Service (APNS) and Google Cloud messaging service.
Is this service subject to fees?
No, these services are free of charge.
How does the detector initialization take place?
The installation and initialization procedure is illustrated in the operations manual, which is supplied with the detector. Detailed procedures and videos are available at www.smart4house.net.
How long is the warranty?
90 days from the date of purchase.
Is the data transmission from the detector secured?
Yes. Data transmitted from the detector is encrypted.
What environment can the detector operate in?
The detector is designed for indoor use in the temperature range between 0-40°C resp. 32-104°F, without water vapor or condensation.
Which iOS version is compatible?
The detector is compatible with iOS rev. 6.0 and higher.
How does the detector work?
The detector periodically measures the resistance between the electrodes on the probe. If a change is detected, a message is immediately sent to your Smartphone and/or Tablet. In addition, a status message is sent every 4 hours. The detector recognizes three probe states 1. Flooded 2. Not Flooded 3. Probe not connected.
What is the power supply source for the detector?
The detector with 2x LR6 / USB power supply is fitted with battery holders and a USB micro power supply connector. The detector can be powered only by batteries or through a USB connector, or it can be fitted with batteries and power from the USB connector. In this case, when the power supply from the USB connector is interrupted, the detector automatically switches to battery power. You can use an ordinary adapter for 110/230VAC with USB micro connector as power supply, if the current carrying capacity exceeds 300mA, or you can use a power source with a USB 2.0 connector and a cable fitted with a USB connector on one end, and USB micro connector on the other. In this case the current carrying capacity of the source must exceed 300mA.
Why is cloud technology used for Smart4house detectors and what is its significance?
The information sent from the sensors is transmitted to the cloud for processing and storage. Smart4house applications communicate with the cloud and allow users remote updates and access. The cloud runs on secured and backed-up servers.
What is the sensitivity of the detector?
When the probe detects water an alert message is sent within 20 seconds.
Can I display the detector status on several Smart phones/Tablets?
It is possible. You need to install the Smart4house application for the appropriate operating system on the Smartphone. The instructions for activation iOS are in the manual for iOS par. 3.2a, 3.2b.
