Wifi contact sensor
I need some advice on a gadget...
I have a sump pit in my house that fills up and gets emptied by a sump pump. But sump pumps often fail, and I need some reassurance when they do.
I want to have a sensor on the pit when the level of water gets to a certain point.
I know there are products on the market that do that. However, the pit already has a little floatie sensor, which is wired to a legacy alarm sensor that no longer is use. The floatie does trigger the sensor (it lights up but has nowhere to send the signal as the alarm system is uninstalled). It’s wired to that sensor through simple two contacts. Kind like on (when connected) and off (when disconnected).
So, I’m looking for an updated sensor that will send an alert when the floatie is triggered (contacts are connected). Should be wifi capable, as I’d like to get a text or an email when triggered.
What products should I be looking for? Any recommendations?
