GridLocate Smart Water Sensor

The GridLocate Smart Water Sensor is designed for home and office-based localised flooding scenarios.  Typical use cases include leaking pipes, washing machine failures or baths that have overflowed onto the floor.  The LoRa® sensor is able to detect if there is water on the surface (e.g. the floor) and send an alert message to the central tracking platform.  The module works with 2 AA batteries, with a predicted life of 2 years.  Typical use cases:

  • 2nd Homes:  A leak or burst pipe at your 2nd home or rental properties might go unnoticed for days, weeks or even months.  When you visit, you’re confronted with a ruined home and ruinous costs that can run into the thousands.
  • Elderly and Seniors:  It’s one of your concerns. That your elderly parents or residents accidentally leave a tap running in the bath, and aren’t aware of the flooding taking place in their flat or home.   Our Smart Water Sensor communicates with our central platform to send out an alert if water is detected.
  • Outbuildings and offices:  Using our Smart Water Sensor, you can keep an eye on potential burst pipes and leaks across all your buildings.

This Water Sensor Alarm is sold as a full working prototype for client tests.  We are in discussion with new clients around requirements for an enhanced solution.  Please get in touch if you’d like to learn more or participate in the trials.

This device communicates with our GridLocate Platform.  Find out more here: IoT Platform

LoRaWAN Requirements

Our range of IoT Sensors requires the devices to be located within the range of a LoRaWAN™ network, a low-power Wide Area Network created by installing one or more LoRaWAN™ gateways with aerials.  A single LoRa® gateway provides coverage up to 15km line-of-sight, and several kilometers in urban areas. Whilst LoRa®gateways are available for under $300, you may find that The Things Network (www.thethingsnetwork.com) or other providers already have coverage in your area.
