Want to protect your home from water damage & gets alerts before things get out of hand? See how the D-Link Wi-Fi Water Sensor can help here!

Have you ever dealt with flooding in your home? I’m not talking about natural disaster type flooding, but the failure of a sump pump, dishwasher, or even a toilet. I have seen a sump pump go twice in my life – once in my stepfather’s home, and at a friend’s home. By the time anyone found out, there was thousands of dollars in damage. While our basement thankfully doesn’t need a sump pump, there are still plenty of things that can flood – the washing machine, dishwasher, toilet, or even the refrigerator! Thankfully, D-Link now has a way to alert you when links happen – allowing you to handle water problems before they get worse with the D-Link Wi-Fi Water Sensor.

D-Link Wi-Fi Water Sensor: What is It?

Looking for a way to protect your home from water damage? If so, we think you will love the D-Link Wi-Fi Water Sensor. This innovative mobile device plugs into a water close by a water unit and sets off an alarm when water is detected, and will send an alert to your phone, letting you know that you need to deal with water before it causes serious damage to your home. All you need is a smartphone, wi-fi capable router, and at least one available power outlet. Best of all, it works with other my D-Link devices, allowing you to pair it with a smart plug, wi-fi camera, or even a wi-fi siren that you can set off from your phone. Who knew protecting your home from water could be so easy? To learn more, make sure to watch the short video below!

D-Link Wi-Fi Water Sensor: Our Thoughts

Personally, I think this is one of the coolest ideas ever. While we thankfully weren’t able to test out having a water leak (thank goodness), I am happy we have a bit of insurance in place to make sure things don’t get out of hand. Best of all, the system is very easy to set up, and really is one of those things that you just leave and forget about unless there is an emergency. If there is, your phone will get a notification, telling you there is an issue and you need to check it out immediately. Honestly, I think every home needs one of these devices, since no one wants to have who knows hundreds or thousands in damage caused by just water! Based on our own experience, I am delighted to give the D-Link Wi-Fi Water Sensor an A rating!

    The first house I lived in had a basement that flooded. It cost a lot of money to waterproof. After that, there was mold to remove, This sounds like something I wish we had at the time.

    My mom needs this as her basement floods sometimes due to the AC unit. I’ll tell her about this…or maybe this would be a good holiday gift!

    This is a really good idea. I’ve had 2 incidents that this would have really come in hand for.

    This would definitely be something I would want, as I know people who’ve had flooding in their homes that caused quite a bit of damage. Thanks for posting!

    Oh yes, right by the washing machine is the place for that puppy. I once entered my garage (innocently) to find two inches of water covering the entire floor! It was a disaster.

    Yeah, this is one of those products you don’t want to ever need, but good to have. My dishwasher malfunctioned once and poured soapy water all over the kitchen floor. Luckily we were in the living room talking, when my husband saw the suds. I often go to bed to read while the dishes are washing, so it could have been a bad bad deal.

    I’ve never had to deal with a sump pump. But I’m a home & appliance repairman. I’ll tell you what, this is a superb idea. It takes some money out of my pockets as I do cleanup & repair from such incidents, but still a great idea.

    It just amazes me all the little gadgets they have come out with. This would be nice to have. Thank you so much for sharing

    That’s a clever invention. I don’t have a smartphone.

    What will they think of next?! We’ve had huge issues with slab leaks. This would be a great product for us…and anyone that wants to protect their home from water damage.
