Water Sensor 6.
Water Sensor 6. Your home’s 6th sense.
We protect our homes in so many ways. With smoke sensors, door locks, and security systems. But more homes are damaged each year by small leaks than by devastating fires or burglaries. Water Sensor 6 changes that, using Z-Wave Plus to silently monitor areas of your home at risk of water and then taking action when the worst occurs.
Water Sensor 6 monitors your home.
Leaks & bursts.
Water Sensor 6 can detect minuscule amounts of water – as little as 0.5mm / 0.02” of water. That makes it your first line of defence against damaged plumbing.
Whether a small amount or large, Water Sensor 6 also is perfect at protecting against the floods you can anticipate, such as sumps and in basements.
Accidents happen but that doesn’t make the damage caused by forgotten taps any less expensive. Water Sensor 6 can alert you to the water you’ve forgotten to turn off before it’s too late.
Water Sensor 6 helps protect your home.
Water Sensor 6 doesn’t just monitor for when a pipe has burst or is leaking, it can take protective measures to help limit the amount of damage caused.
Using the power of Z-Wave you can put Water Sensor 6 in control of other Z-Wave devices so that, when the worst occurs, Water Sensor 6 do anything from sending alerts to turning off electricity and water valves in order to protect your home and your loved ones.
Auto-close water valves.
In the event of a pipe burst, use Water Sensor 6 to turn off electronic water valves via Z-Wave.
Turn on sump pumps.
When water is detected, turn on electronic sump pumps your gateway or Z-Wave switches.
Auto turn off power.
Water and electricity don’t mix. Protect your home and family by turning off electronics in the event of a leak or flood.
Leak protection anywhere.
Leaks often happen in the worst of places. Behind things, under things, and in all those hard-to-see places that mean you don’t see the leak until it’s far too late.
That’s why Water Sensor 6 is so slim – it’s only 3.8cm wide and 2.4cm tall. That means Water Sensor 6 will fit and blend in wherever you need it, whether that’s in a hard to reach space or one where it can be seen.
The leak sensor with sensors.
Water Sensor 6 is a part of our Z-Wave intelligence range. It’s been designed to protect your home and it’s also been designed to make your smart home smarter. Three separate sensors are crafted into each Water Sensor 6.
Each of these sensors can be used to create intelligent home control scenarios via your Z-Wave gateway including the management of underfloor heating, HVAC control, and driveway heating.
4 gold tipped water probes actively monitor for leaks and drips.
Tamper and emergency events are confirmed by an algorithm that includes vibration detection.
Crafted for heating management, an inbuilt temperature sensor can monitor temperatures between -20ºC and 100ºC (-4ºF to 212ºF).

Water Sensor 6 protects your home from leaks and floods in the easiest of ways. You place it down, set it, and forget it. Dock is a pro-tool that dramatically enhances the most important features of Water Sensor 6. With Dock and Water Sensor 6 combined, your home is protected by the most advanced Z-Wave flood sensor available.
Monitor 2 areas.
Connect 1 or 2 of the provided spot sensors to Dock to monitor for leaks up to 1 metre away from Water Sensor 6. Most water leak sensors let you only monitor a single area. Dock enhances Water Sensor 6 to be able to monitor 2 separate areas using spot sensors. Each sensor is a probe that can monitor surfaces, including floors, up to 1 metre away from the installation location of Dock. Only 0.1” thick, probes are perfect for remote monitoring and to monitor in exceptionally tight and hard to reach areas.
Monitor a whole area.
Connect a lasso sensor to encircle and monitor an entire area such as a hot water boiler.While you can be sure that leaks will happen, you can’t always be sure where they will happen. That’s particularly true when it comes water tanks and boilers. While they will leak, it’s impossible to know from where they’ll leak. Dock solves that. Simply connect a lasso sensor and encircle an object completely. Wherever the leak occurs, Water Sensor 6 will then detect it.
Use a USB charger and provided cable to power Dock from a power outlet. Now Water Sensor 6’s battery acts as an emergency backup. Dock can be powered by mains electricity. Simply plug it into a power outlet using the provided USB cable and a 5VDC, 0.5A USB adaptor; a common smartphone charger. Doing so means that Water Sensor 6 no longer needs to depend on batteries; you don’t even have to use them. But if you do, Water Sensor 6’s battery will be used as a backup battery that offers the same battery life as the sensor itself: 2 years. Plenty of time to get power restored to Dock.
Raise Water Sensor 6 using Dock and optimise the performance of its Z-Wave Plus antenna. Water Sensor 6 uses Gen5 and Z-Wave Plus for wireless communication. It’s optimised to communicate at over 150 metres in an open space. As Z-Wave is a low-power signal however, its wireless range can be impacted by metal objects such as washing machines and fridges.
Should you be installing it near metal, Dock allows you to optimise the wireless performance of Z-Wave. Use it to install Water Sensor 6 away from metal objects while still monitoring the areas that you wanted to.
