How Does a Flood Detector Work?

A flood detector a device used to help prevent water damage within a home or business. When a leak occurs and the water comes in contact with the flood sensors, an alarm is triggered.

Flood Detectors are based off a tried and true principle of electrical circuit. The sensors attached to the flood detector only complete the electrical circuit when they encounter water. Once that circuit is completed, an alert will be transmitted to your control panel and an alarm will be triggered. Security systems monitor the flood detector data and alert the homeowner via alarm to the presence of water when moisture levels rise above normal conditions.

You can place flood detectors in any area of your home. We recommend placing the Flood Detector anywhere you have water pipes. Here are a few other tips for flood sensor installation and positioning:

  1. Install flood sensors in areas that are prone to water damage.
  2. Put them under sinks
  3. Position flood sensors near washer/dryer
  4. Mount them near water heaters
  5. Put them inside crawl spaces
  6. When used in basements, flood sensors can help prevent mold and damage from appliances

Flooding doesn’t have to be a scary situation. With flood sensors, you can be better protected and prepared. After all, damage from flooding often involves more than just replacing the carpet or furniture. Frequently, you have to seek out mold or replace important infrastructure inside your home. Early detection with flood motion detectors is a key element in preventing damage from water leaks.

Flood detectors help homeowners by:

  • Being integrated with your home monitoring system so you receive alerts along with your home security
