Now we know our Wi-Fi Water Sensor (DCH-S160) isn’t the most fun or exciting product you’ll ever buy but we guarantee it’ll be your favorite when it alerts you of a leak before it has the chance to wreak havoc on your home. In a recent review by Jason Fitzpatrick, editor of How-To Geek, about protecting your home with smart sensors he completely agreed.
After ‘super easy’ setup Jason and his team we’re amazed at how responsive the device was, ‘The response time on the D-Link DCH-S160 was freaky fast. Like so fast it startled us fast. We set everything up, put the wires in place, and then splashed a very small amount of water on the wire. The built-in siren went off which didn’t startle us (as we expected an immediate response) but at almost the exact same time the phone in our pocket vibrated with a notification alert’.
All in all Jason named the Wi-Fi Water Sensor the ‘best value in the category’ stating, ‘Not only is D-Link the first major networking/home product vendor to get a Wi-Fi sensor to market but at $75 their product is significantly cheaper than more complex and less user friendly networked solutions’.
