With an AcuRite Room Monitor with Water Detector, you can track conditions in a wide range of environments, providing many practical applications and giving you the information you need to take action. The three included leak detectors cover a broad 15-foot (1.5 meter) area, to make sure you catch problems before they can cause damage.
The Room Monitor is a compact, versatile unit with a digital LCD display for instant visibility of current conditions.
Setup is simple: Install batteries and position the Room Monitor in the area where you wish to track conditions. Next, plug a Water Detector into the Monitor. The two additional Water Detectors plug into each other in a “daisy chain” for a wide monitoring area. Finally, position the Water Detectors in the location(s) where you want to stay informed of liquid intrusion.
Includes: Room Monitor, 3 Add-on Water Detectors, zip ties, mounting hardware, instruction manuals

I have 2 of the water sensors in the basement. One by the water heater and one by the well water tank. One is 15 feet from the smarthub and one is 30 feet from the smarthub. Both consistenly show weak or poor signal strength and occasionly lose the connection. This is odd because I have 6 temperature sensors throughout the house including the basement and I get excellent signal strength.
I have a second home nad have the heat and water on. So that I could monitor it I purchased the monitor and three of the sensors that daisy chain into the unit. The installation was simple, I placed them in the basement (which is finished) near the water heater and washing machine which are about 10 feet apart. Even though there are three sensors on this unit it looks like one unit to the Smarthub.
Prior to installing it I wanted to see how much water would set it off. It turns out that almost none, just a little more than an thin film of water will give you the alert which is exactly what I wanted.
The sensors also have contacts on the larger bottom and also on the long end which should help in situatons where placement is tight such as inside pipes. It comes with a number of quick-ties to attach the wiring to pipes which I did not need.
I have had alot of luck with all of the temperature sensors and have 9 sensors off of one Smartbub. Prior the Bridge handled up to three sensors but that is not the case with the Smarthub, it can handle 10 concurrently. The new application runs fast and the data for the 10 sensors is back in under a second or two.
All in all very pleased with hte product and the My accurite app.
