The LeakSmart system is the complete leak protection solution. It’s a ZigBee wireless standard and compatible major smart home consumer hubs. We reviewed LeakSmart on both Wink Hub v2 and Samsung SmartThings Hub v2. Both work fantastic, we couldn’t be happier with LeakSmart.
LeakSmart’s solution is mainly comprised on 2 key products; the Sensors and Valve. The idea is, if any sensor detects water (or battery loss) it sends a “Close Signal” to your main water line (Valve). The Valve plugs includes an AC Adapter but also slots for 4 AA batteries in case of a power outage. They have other products in their system like a range extender which will boost the ZigBee signal long range; so if you want to reach over to your pool house from your main house. In our setup we decided to forgo the extender in favor of adding more sensors. ZigBee is a mesh network that strengthens range and reliability the more you add which doesn’t help the “Smart Home Buy Craze.”
The sensors take 3 AAA batteries and sadly eats through them pretty quickly. In a one year period we changed 1 sensor 4 times, or 12 AAA batteries. Word of advice, don’t splurge on higher end lithium batteries as we found they eat through them just as quick. Best bet would be rechargeable AAA’s. So while the batteries are an issue, this system works perfectly. Since trying this system 2 years ago, 4 floods have been avoided saving thousands of dollars of damage. We placed the discrete white sensors under each sink, toilet, sump pump and main water line. 2 Floods were specifically avoided when we’re remodeling the laundry room as we placed one behind the machines (both have steam settings, even the dryer has a water hook up).
The Valve is very responsive to remote commands and was easy for a non-plumber (myself) to install with Shark Bites. We used a ratchetting PVC cutter to slice into our PEX main water line, attached 2 Shark Bites to each end of the ¾ valve and after some tightening we were up and running in no time.
In our experience with testing out over 100 Z-Wave & ZigBee products, LeakSmart is the best option for Flood protection and is even one of the cheapest when compared to other sensors and valves. LeakSmart also offers a standalone system with their own ZigBee hub if you don’t want to jump right into the smart home hub market; as the battle goes on. Also word to the wise, we called our insurance company and advised them we now have automatic leak protection and they lowered our monthly bill by 10 dollars. So yes, while it will take us a good 10 years to pay off our initial investment from insurance savings, after the 1st leak aversion, it’s paid for itself and continues to.
This is a must have product in your smart home arsenal. LeakSmart ALL the WAY!

Great system, I have had it installed for over a year and it works great! You can see all the temperatures of the different sensors on your phone and you can set it up to close upon detecting water or if it gets to cold. I use it a lot during the summer to shut off the water when my kids have been playing in the hose to long.

I had purchased one of these to use with my Iris system and finally got it in last week. Well two nights ago my water softener sprung a leak and flooded my laundry/utility room. The corresponding sensor saw the water, shut off the main and sounded the alarm. Not the way I wanted to wake up at 3:30 but I was happy to be able to clean things up before they became a real problem. This is well worth getting.
