[Amazon.ca] Honeywell Home RCHW3610WF1006/N Water Leak Detector $49.99

The Honeywell Home RCHW3610WF1006/N Water Leak Detector is on sale, lowest I've seen and CCC says it's the lowest it's been.
This saved me from a big flood damage bill when my water tank started leaking over night.
I prefer this over others because it has a long water sensing cable, loud alarm, phone notification and the base also detects water as well.

Or you can make one yourself for ~6$ if you are a DIYer. This one is of my design, I built 4 of them, for different parts of the house (has wi-fi and alarm):

Not sure how safe solder fumes are these days.. make sure you use lead-free solder if you attempt this.

has anyone had experience with the "dumb" leak detectors? the ones that just beep when they detect water rather than connecting over wifi

Thats all I have, and yes they work, but of course somone needs to be home to do anything about. But they have saved me a few times when I had a small leak start. Had a small leak from my washing machine from not tightening the hose enough. It was just a very slow drip, and the kids let me know at work, so I got them to turn off the valves.

My most recent time was with my furnace humidifer.

I have some Honeywell pucks that are $10 each, and then others that have a long cable so you can put them where you want and then the box somehwre else. Those I have for my Fridge and dishwasher.

Any long stays away from home, I shut my water off anyway, just due to an leak I had over 20 years ago in a house. Now its just habit any over night stays I just turn off my main valve. My washing machine hoses I replace every 5 years as well.

I check mine every 3 months. TEst them with water that they still work and check the batteries. The ones for the dishwasher and fridge have a test button on them, so best I can do. I taped the sensors flat so I assume they should work if it happens

For the fridge I added another shut off under the sink for it, since the one behind the fridge you cant turn off unless you move the firdge

Yes, if you have the Honeywell Home app installed.

It works fine even though my Smartthings system keeps saying it's offline but the Honeywell app says it's ok.

more useful to post the price than the model number, would have saved me a click.

$6...after spending a few hundred on a 3D printer and $20-$50 for a solder iron.

Anyone know if the local alarm can be turned off on this unit?

I have the Dlink and wish I could disable the local alarm. Although it does suck that the dlink app just sends a normal iPhone notification, so if I’m asleep I totally miss it.

Pull out you time machines...

I had bought two of these from Home Depot for 17$ when they were on clearance. They were slow to react to a leak (2minutes under running water) and I just didn't have a liking for them. Replaced for SmartThings leak sensors to fit in my HA ecosystem.

Resold both after for 10$ the pair...

Does with an iPhone have this?
I’ve seen a few reviewers say the app doesn’t work well with iPhones, so I don’t want to order to have to return. I’ve been wanting a few for a while but the Samsung one is not sold anymore, Ring stuff doesn’t sell to QC, most other models have bad reviews so I only have this and the Costco ones as possible options at the moment.
