Another issue from my perspective is that the only way to check the battery is manually at the sensor. There is no remote/online indication of low battery voltage. Therefore, unless you remember to check the battery in each sensor regularly, you have no indication that the battery has died and needs to be changed. When the battery dies, the sensor indication is "closed", regardless if that is the case or not. Again, my alarm sensors provide a low voltage indication on the panel when they need to be changed, so including a remote indication for the Insteon sensors should not be difficult.
The next day I get an alarm email. I think "Boy, this thing false triggered already ... this will not be good for my summer house". But when I went downstairs, I saw a small puddle of water around it where my A/C drainage line had leaked a bit. In other words, the "false" trigger was for real.
The physical installation is as simple as placing it on the floor. But remember, you need at least one "dual band" Insteon device in your system to communicate with this.
• Easy to install. Just set it on the floor where a water leak might happen.
• I get a notification on my phone within seconds of a leak being detected.
• I have 18 of these, and they all work flawlessly.
• Insteon claims that the battery should last for about 10 years
• The range is decent. All of mine connected except one. Then it successfully connected later when I added a dual-band Insteon dimmer switch that extended the signal into the basement.
• If you plan on installing these where pets might get to them, make sure you attach them to the ground with some double-sided tape. Otherwise your pets will knock them over, and they won't work. It would be great if Insteon would address this limitation.
• These sensors DO NOT work with the Insteon Pro Hub. Make sure you get the non-pro hub if you plan on using these sensors.
Overall I'm really happy with these. Next I plan on installing a valve at the main water inlet which can be controlled by the Insteon Hub. That way the water to the entire house can be shut off whenever a leak is detected.
