  • Both titanium probes must be in the same puddle for the Sensor to detect water. The alarm will stop once the probes are dry.
  • Alarms from the Flood Sensor do not cause dispatch but the monitoring station will call and the siren will sound.

Placement Recommendations

We recommend installing the Flood Sensor in a flood-prone area, such as a basement or near appliances (i.e. washing machine, water, heater, sump pump).


Place the Flood Sensor in the location requiring flood detection with the metal prongs and serial number facing down.

The wall clip can be screwed into a surface before slipping the body of the sensor onto it if necessary.
