Common Questions About Sump Pump Water Sensors

Flooding doesn't take a break. Neither does our water level sensor. The Proteus L5 Wi-Fi Liquid Level Sensor can help protect your home or business from water damage. The sump pump sensor works by detecting liquid rising or falling past a specified point. If it breaches that point, you will receive an immediate alert so you can take the necessary action.


How Do Water Level Sensors Work?

The sump pump alarm works 24 hours a day and sends alerts to your phone or email so that you're immediately made aware of any malfunctions to your sump pump. However, the L5 sensor can monitor more than that. It can also be used in other locations, such as in a hot tub or swimming pool, to detect any rise in a location's liquid level.

Preventing flooding is the most cost-effective way of dealing with rising waters. Order online and install your sensor yourself in just minutes!


Why Do I Need a Water Level Sensor?

The average insurance claim due to floods from 2011 to 2015 was a whopping $46,000. The average water damage claim is about $7,000. It's estimated that 14,000 people have to hurry to deal with water leak emergencies every single day, and even if you're not in a flood plain, 98 percent of basements will experience leaks at some point.

The numbers talk, and they tell you to count your basement among the 98 percent. But with our sump pump sensor, you don't need to be among the 14,000. Our water level sensor is a low-cost way to monitor your sump pump's efficacy and ensure its failure doesn't turn into damage to your home.


Can Multiple Sensors be Connected?

Proteus can support multiple level sensors. They all connect to a single base unit through a splitter included with the package.

NOTE: When connecting more than one level sensors to the base unit, the base unit will not be able to distinguish which of the multiple sensors detected water. If you need to identify specifically which sensor triggered, then you will need individual base units which can be named to match your installed locations. The alerts will include this sensor name so you can identify each sensor.


What is the difference between Proteus AQUO and Proteus L5 Level Sensor?

Proteus AQUO has a sensor cable with metallic electrodes at the end of the cable. When water touches these two electrodes at the same time, the alarm is triggered. AQUO can detect as low as 1/16" of water

Proteus L5 sump pump level sensor uses a float switch detector. The moving float switch rises/ falls as water level rises and this mechanical action triggers the alarm. As there are no exposed electrodes, the chances of condensation in high humidity spots such as sump pits are minimized, thereby avoiding false alerts.


Can You Check the Sensor Status?

Because we offer our cloud-based service to every user, you can log in to see the stats of the sensor from anywhere you have internet access. All you need to do is open the device log to see any instances where our monitor detected a rise in water level.

Though we call our product a sump pump sensor, the L5 is a Wi-Fi sensor that can detect liquid levels anywhere. Its primary application is to monitor sump pumps, but it can be used for so much more.

Our sensors can detect when water levels exceed or dip below a certain limit. Some places you may want to place your water level sensor include:

  • Water tanks
  • Fish tanks
  • Water heater pans
  • Condensation pans
  • Sewage tanks
  • RV water tanks
  • Sewage pumps

Because of the sensor's versatility, it can be placed wherever there is an outlet and internet accessibility, allowing you to monitor water levels anywhere.


Does the Sensor Need to Be Integrated With a Home Security System to Send Notifications?

In days of old, water level sensors needed to be paired with a security system so there was a way to notify the owner. Now, our sensors are paired directly with our cloud server so you can be notified via email, text or call, without the need to subscribe to an expensive security system.

Our sensors can also communicate to our server when they experience a power outage, so you know what's going on in your home.


We sense you may have some questions. Feel free to contact us today to learn more. Have a unique application in mind or want your sensor to work in tandem with another device when water is detected? Our devices work with many third-party devices, we can help you figure out a solution.
