Getting notified of a water leak at home is nice, but being able to do something about it is even nicer.
That’s why the LeakSmart Sensor is worth considering, even though it’s pricier ($69 per sensor) than most of its competition. With LeakSmart’s optional automatic shutoff valve ($159 at Lowe’s), you can remotely stop the water from flowing in the event of a flood.
Setting up the sensor
The LeakSmart Sensor uses the ZigBee connection protocol, but it’s mainly intended for Wink and Lowe’s Iris hubs. (It also paired with a SmartThings hub in testing, but only registered as a generic “Thing” instead of a water sensor.)
