Inclusion Information

  1. Bring the Water Sensor within direct range of your controller
  2. Carefully remove the cover from the sensor
  3. Remove the plastic pull-tab from the battery slot. The LED indicator will blink slowly 5 times
  4. Put your Z-Wave controller into inclusion mode
  5. Press and release the Z-Wave button on the Water Sensor 3 TIMES quickly. The LED indicator will flash quickly
  6. A new water (leak) sensor will appear on your controller’s device list

Troubleshooting Tips If you are unable to include the Z-Wave Water Sensor to your controller, try one of the following:

  • Bring the sensor closer to your hub or use a hand-held secondary controller to perform inclusion
  • Once in inclusion mode, press and release the Z-Wave button quickly 6-7 TIMES to ensure the command has gone through
  • Put your controller in EXCLUSION mode. Press and release the Z-Wave button quickly 3 TIMES, and then try adding the sensor to your network again
  • You may need to change the device type manually if the sensor is not recognized correctly (email us for more info: [email protected])

Exclusion Information

  1. Make sure the Water Sensor is powered on and located within direct range of your Z-Wave gateway controller
  2. Put your Z-Wave controller in exclusion mode
  3. Press and release the Z-Wave button 3 TIMES quickly. The LED indicator will flash quickly
  4. The Water Sensor should disappear from your controller’s device list

If the first attempt is unsuccessful, please repeat the process following all steps carefully

Wakeup Information

If you change settings and parameters for the sensor, you may need to wake it up manually for the changes to be recorded. Press and release the Z-Wave button THREE TIMES to wake the device up. The LED indicator will flash ONCE. The sensor’s wake-up interval is set to 12 hours by default to save battery life. Though not recommended, you can change the wake-up interval using your controller’s advanced settings if available. Minimum value: 300s (5 minutes), maximum value: 16,777,200s (around 194 days). Accepted values need to match minute intervals, so 300, 360, 420, etc

1: Total Alarm Duration

Total duration of audio and visual alarm when water is detected.

Overview

Use this parameter to set the total duration of audio and visual alarm each time water is detected. If the value is set to 0, the alarm will continue until water is no longer detected. Use parameters 2 – 4 to customize the alarm.

Property Value
Configuration ID config_1_1
Data Type INTEGER
Range 0 to 255
Default Value 120

2: Audio Alarm: Beep Interval

Interval length between beeps

Overview

Set the beeping frequency for the sensor’s audio alarm. The interval between beeps can be as low as 1 minute.

Property Value
Configuration ID config_2_1
Data Type INTEGER
Range 1 to 255
Default Value 1

3: Audio Alarm: First Beep Duration

Duration of First Beep

Overview

Adjust the duration of the initial sound the alarm will produce after a leak is detected.
