Sensor detects moisture or leaks using 2 probes
You can catch leaks as soon as they start with a water-sensor system that triggers an I/O Linc to communicate to your Indigo/INSTEON system and subsequently alerts you via flashing a lamp or even emailing you on your iPhone. This Minotaur Engineering branded INSTEON Water/Moisture Sensor can detect moisture on any non-conductive surface and send a signal to Indigo or any INSTEON linked device in range of the I/O Linc (see below for option to add an I/O Linc).
The Water/ Moisture Sensor connects to the I/O Linc unit via three leads on a 5-foot cable. The sensor should be placed such that the two probes firmly touch the surface to be protected. It is recommended that you use the enclosed self adhesive wire tie and holder to correctly position the sensor and hold it in place. Care should be taken such that the sensor is in a position so that if moisture occurs in the area, it does not "run" or drip away from the sensor. After installation, placing the sensor on a wet washcloth should trigger the unit and allow you to test the system.
