After having two water leaks this summer flood my basement and utility room I needed to get a water/flood sensor. I have a couple My-dlink cameras and thought I’d take a chance on this D-Link water sensor.

The build quality of this sensor is excellent. The main unit is gloss white with one WPS pairing button on it and a side mounted LED light and bottom sensor jack. You get a 1 meter (39”) telephone type cable which plugs into the bottom of the Water Sensor Unit and then a 19” water sensor probe which plugs into the extension cable. All total you get just under 5’ of cable length from the sensor to the end of the water probe.

Configuring the Wi-Fi for me was very easy, the Water Sensor paired with my router using the WPS Button and then the MyDlink Home App connected to the water sensor after scanning a QR Code and set up a secure P2P connection between d-link’s servers and the water sensor.

It took two tries to for the MyDlink Home App to connect to the water sensor but my home network is more complicated than the average home, I have two routers and a VPN network so I was actually surprised that the MyDlink was able to connect to the router on the second try ... I thought for sure I would have to call tech support but I didn't need to.

I installed the MyDlink Home App on my phone and iPad and it found my existing cameras and new water sensor. I tested the water sensor in my sump and behind my washing machine and in both areas it works flawlessly and sent me notifications within 20 seconds of detecting water.

As a test, I also unplugged the unit for a day to simulate a power failure.

Verified Purchase
My God, I just wasted several hours of my life setting this device up -- and I am just absolutely pissed that I will never get that time back.

Should have known better. I don't generally like D-LINK products. They are always complicated to set up and not always reliable.

I finally got this working, but I had to race back to my computer and write a review to send a clear warning to those of you considering purchasing this device. Sadly, I think by the end of this review, you are going to end up buying it anyway. There's really little other choices out there.

So let me backtrack...

I built a very expensive home theater in my basement, which is located adjacent to a room that contains a water heater. Over 10 years ago, prior to building that home theater, the old water heater burst and deposited gallons of water across my basement floor. It was complete havoc to clean up. It completely ruined the floor and furniture.

I have always wanted to carpet the basement and build my dream theater. I never did it because I knew that one day, I faced having the replacement water heater failing and the same disaster repeating itself.

I went ahead and carpeted the basement earlier this year. Added a projector and expensive recliners.

I figured, if I could safeguard that water heater, I may be able to head off the next disaster.

The first step was purchasing a flood stop device that automatically turns off the water valve if water is detected.

Next, I searched for a device that would sense a leak and send me a notification to my iPhone. I was surprised to see that there weren't many options available. Some devices were very expensive. Some devices got awful reviews.

Update 10.14.15 D-Link just released a major update to the Home app. It is greatly improved in speed and has incrementally more function. The look and feel is better as well. D-Link consistently improves their products which I think is a sign of a quality company. Anyway, this new update really shines compared to the earlier releases.

The water sensor is nicely packaged, and of a near perfect build quality. Nice shiny white plastic and tight seams. You'll receive the main unit, the sensor cable, a few cable clips and another cable that allows extension of the sensor via standard phone cable. Download the MyDlink Home app, scan the QR code that came with the water sensor (on a business card size paper) and use WPS to set it up. Very easy and quick.

Install and test. I installed in my laundry area, close to the floor drain. So many items to leak, washer, water softener, water filter, and even the condensates from the furnace. Lots of water connections. Anyway, you do need a 110 plug for this, so found one. Used a phone cord to extend the sensor to the floor and clipped it in place. The sensor is about 8 inches long and looks a bit like a gray and white barber pole. Test: it is very sensitive! Just a few drops of water on the probe and it alarms and sends an absolutely immediate notification to my phone. I mean, drip and ding goes the phone. That's good. The alarm on the actual sensor is not very loud, kinda like a tiny horn, so D-Link is expecting you'll buy the Siren DCH-S220 and I suggest you do so if you are investing in this water sensor.

The MyDink Home app is really a standalone app. If you have D-Link Cameras, the app finds them, but expects you to launch MyDlink Lite or + to view the cameras.
