Reliable, Inexpensive and Long Battery Life
Reviewed on 01/09/2018
I've been using these sensors with my VeraEdge controller for several years, and have found them very reliable and responsive. Battery life for six of mine has been great, measured in years and months, in fact, I've only replaced one set of batteries on the first six units.
I recently tried an alternative brand and type, since I wanted to put one under the dishwasher, and the combined sensor and body looked like a convenient alternative, but found the batteries down to 91% in just a week. I returned it and bought a 7th Utilitech, and mounted it on a small PVC board to place on the floor under the dishwasher.
Works great in my basement.

I've been using this for over a year with my Iris system in the basdement for my sump pump. No signal or battery issues!
Best in class

I think this is the best of all the moisture sensors out there now. Very rugid design with long cable to moisture probe and uses two AA batteries. Other sensors have no cable so you have place the sensor where it will be directly exposed to water. Seems to me that a real flood would cause that type of unit to fail.
It is Z Wave device so it can be used with many systems. I use them on SmartThings.
