Frequently asked Water Sensor questions

How does a water sensor work?

Flood or water sensors are small devices placed near areas in your home that are prone to flooding or leaks. If water is detected, it will sound an alarm so you can act quickly before serious damage occurs.

Vivint Water Sensors expand protection from water damage with the following:

  • Moisture monitoring. They alert you of excess moisture before even water is detected. You can take action before a minor leak becomes a major issue.

  • Temperature monitoring. Freezing temps can quickly lead to burst pipes and costly damage. Vivint Water Sensors detect drops in temperature, notifying you before costly damage occurs.

  • Alerts and notifications. An alarm doesn't help when you're not around to hear it. If a Vivint Water Sensor goes off, you'll immediately be alerted on your smartphone. We’ll also connect you with emergency water mitigation services*.

*Available in TX, GA, LA, FL, NY, NJ, PA, AL, NC, SC, and TN. (Additional states coming soon.)

Where should water sensors be placed?

We have reviewed water loss claims data to help prioritize where water sensors should be placed to avoid the costliest home damage.

  1. Near the sump pump if you have a basement
  2. Behind the washing machine
  3. Under the hot water heater
  4. Behind the toilet
  5. Under the kitchen sink
  6. Behind the dishwasher
  7. Behind the refrigerator
  8. Under bathroom sinks
  9. Under/near the AC condenser

While these are some of the most common sources of standing water and leaks, it’s not an exhaustive list — water damage can occur throughout your home from multiple sources. A Vivint professional will help you determine the best locations for water sensors in your home.

How are water leaks detected?

Simple. Water sensors do the work. Place them next to appliances, toilets, pipes, or basement windows that could potentially leak. The sensors detect increases in moisture and water before serious damage occurs and notify you via your smartphone. Early detection gives you the opportunity to quickly address the situation and fix the issue before things get out of hand, saving you time, money and headaches.

What is a water leak sensor?

Water leak sensors are small devices that monitor the presence of water, moisture and, in some cases, temperature levels. Placed in areas of your home prone to leaks or flooding, they’ll alert you if moisture, water or freezing temperatures are detected so you can take action before a pipe bursts or costly water damage occurs.
