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 included leak detector helps make sure you catch problems before they 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 the Water Detector into the Monitor. Finally, position the Detector in the location where you want to stay informed of liquid intrusion.
If you wish to monitor a large area for leaks or flooding, two or more Add-on Water Leak Detectors can be linked together in a “daisy chain” to expand your monitoring area.
Includes: Room Monitor, Add-on Water Detector, zip ties, mounting hardware, instruction manuals
Warranty: Limited one-year warranty

I use this monitor and sensor to make sure my sump pump is working, especially with the spring coming. I place the water sensor near the top of the sump so if the pump fails to operate I will get an alarm. I accidentally placed the sensor too low and the alarm worked properly on the monitor display, chirping away. What I didn't know when I purchased it is the sensor can be linked to two more sensors if you want, giving you three zones to check.
While the unit works as described, am happy with it. The signal strength could be stronger.
Placed in a crawl space, had to move hub in order to connect. 300 feet is optimal.
The product was easy to install and performs as advertised. I would have like to see a stronger signal for more range. Most of the time I get 3 out of four signal bars, sometimes 4, but the distance between the monitor & sensor is less than 20' and a wood floor between them.
