Fibaro Flood Sensor

The Fibaro Flood Sensor is a Z-Wave moisture sensor that can be used with SmartThings to monitor for leaks and changes in interior temperatures. Paired with the SmartThings Hub and mobile app, the Fibaro Flood Sensor can be used to send push notifications to your phone when water is detected or the temperature swings too hot or cold. It's perfect for under your sink, by your clothes washer, or in your basement.

SmartThings supports both the Fibaro Flood Sensor Z-Wave and Z-Wave plus (or Fibaro 500 series) versions.
