Product Description

Water damage is the most common and most costly disasters affecting North American residences. The average cost of repairs following water damage is $3000-5000, with some repairs costing more then 50,000. Water damage is the most frequent claim to insurance companies.Water damage can be caused by: leaky roofs, appliances, burst pipes, sewer backup, heavy rainfall, overland flooding, or rapidly melting snow and ice. Leaks can go undetected for hours or even days.This system eliminates the need for costly and recurring monthly monitoring fees, the system calls you. A water detector, connected to a telephone system may be able to provide advance notice of a problem and may help reduce the damage that water can do.Set includes: 1 wireless water detector, 1 telephone dialer, batteries and all connections.Sensor detects water and sends wireless signal to telephone dialer for quick notification.Dialer stores and calls up to 5 different telephone numbers to advise of an alarm.Land telephone line (not cellular) and electricity are required for the telephone dialer. Detector operates on a 9V battery (included). Calls can be made to land phones, mobile phones or pagers. Local and long distance can be made by the dialer.

A little complicated to set up and test, but in the end it works well. Auto dialer has to be fairly close to the alarm so make sure you have power, and a phone line close to where your sensor is.

I ordered two sk642 and one detector did not work, also with the telephone dialer if you have a answering machine the answering machine will not pick up if the phone line is connected to the dialer....do not like this feature. could not get in touch with a real person in customer service to see about this problem....I should give it a lower rating

Had it installed for a couple months now, works as advertised and has prevented flooding in my furnace room, a couple of times, and into adjoining rooms where I have resenting installed over 4K dollars of new wood flooring. Thank God I had it.

Works as advertised. It's proven itself a few times already when I had some water seeping from a corroded fitting leak at the over pressure valve on one water heater, and a rain leak from my exhaust chimney opening to the roof on a second heater. The alarm is purposefully and appropriately loud, and the outgoing call feature worked flawlessly. A feature that would earn it a 5th star would be the addition of a text message feature. I like the expandability of adding additional remote sensors for other potential leak sources like the washing machine, dish washer, refrigerator, etc.

Programming the base unit takes a little time due to the number of configurable options. Reading over the manual a few times to determine the configuration for your application before actually programing it is a good idea. I would also recommend testing the system completely with the remotes and a cup of water with the base unit installed (and connected to the phone line if applicable) before deploying the remotes to their final location. Do this where your base station is installed. This will allow you to test and adjust your programming in one place without having to run back and forth to your attic, garage or wherever your remotes will be deployed. Once you've verified that the system is fully functional and that your base programming works as desired, then deploy your remotes and test each one a final time to make sure the wireless signal is strong enough to reach and activate the base unit. The text display contrast on the base unit is a little weak. I wish it were a bit stronger and/or adjustable.

I would buy this again and recommend it.

It works! A lot of noise in both units. For bigger houses, this is a must. Could have a longer range, tough.

Easy to setup (use the PDF on line) and works well with Vonage and cable modem. I use a UPS to keep everything
working (no failures allowed).

So far it works exceptionally well. It dials back too 3 cell phones within seconds of sensor getting wet. I believe you receive a series of tones letting you know which device was tripped. Its a neat device with a lot of features you can set from the receiver and other devices from ideal security. I believe you can add twenty something to this device.
