Difference between rope and spot water sensor

A spot water sensor detects water when water touches the two metal contacts at the end of the cable. This is ideal if possible locations of leaks can be identified such as lowest spot where water would flow to, so you can place the sensor there.

A rope sensor ,on the other hand, can detect water along the length of its cable. This covers larger area and is suitable when there is no single spot you can pin point as to water would flow to. Rope sensor comes in two pieces. The sensing cable is the section that actually detects water. You place this on the floor where you wish to monitor. A non sensing cable will connect the sensor cable to the base unit which will be plugged into a wall outlet.


If you are ordering rope sensors by themselves to be used with a Proteus home or PRO unit, please check with support to make sure the cable will work with the unit you have. Additionally there is a wiring difference between home series wifi sensors and PRO models. Please indicate the model you have in your order. If you are not sure, please contact support to find this information
