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

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.

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.

I think I will like it if I can ever get it programmed correctly. Manual is totally insufficient. I have contacted the company and they are very cooperative but difficult to reach the tech support folks. When I have emailed me, they just reiterate what is in the manual which doesn't work for me. I am pretty techie but this is something else!

Two times I tried, two times Ideal failed me. My first order had a bad telephone sender unit. It alarmed as soon as it was armed. After my 3rd call to Ideal, I finally got to talk to someone who recommended returning it to Amazon. The second order had a bad water detector/sender. It only triggered intermittently. The Amazon return process works great (first time I've used it), Ideal's SK642, not so much. I give up on Ideal products.

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.

My sump pump is on a lower level at the opposite end of my house and under a stairwell. Got this unit, installed it and it works as stated. The setup is not complicated but you need to follow the instructions carefully. Otherwise the alarm may not sound or call out.
