In addition, the sensor is compatible with other elements of the smart home system, which allows you to create automated scenarios . The Flood Sensor from Fibaro provides an increased sense of security and ensures greater comfort of using the system.
Main features of the sensor
- Z-Wave Plus communication protocol
- Water level monitoring and leak detection
- Ambient temperature measurement function
- Alerting potential threats with an audio message and warning light
- Compatibility with voice assistants
- Sending notifications and measurement data to the FIBARO application
Water level monitoring
The main function of this sensor is to detect the presence of water in rooms . The sensor is able to detect even small amounts of water, so it can quickly respond to potential flooding, leaks or flooding, helping to avoid serious damage. If a leak is detected, the sensor immediately notifies you about the event with alarms.
Notifications and alarms
When the Fibaro Flood Sensor detects an increase in the water level, it automatically triggers an alarm signal in the form of a sound and turns on the LED to inform people nearby. An audible alarm and flashing light are crucial for immediate response to a detected leak. Moreover, the sensor also immediately sends notifications via a mobile application on the phone.
The CR123A battery is a highly energy-efficient power source, ideal for applications requiring long-term use. Thanks to its durability and performance, a single CR123A battery can provide power for months or even years under normal use. This is a single-use battery, which means it is not intended to be recharged and used again.
Synchronization with the smartphone application
This product is integrated with the FIBARO application , which allows the user to remotely control all connected devices. This means that regardless of whether the user is at home, in the office or on a well-deserved vacation, he can easily manage the operation of his devices using his smartphone. This translates into time savings and greater convenience for the user.

Z-Wave Plus device compatibility
Z-Wave Plus is a developed version of the international Z-Wave wireless communication protocol, used in smart home systems. Z-Wave Plus introduces several key improvements that increase the reliability, performance and functionality of this protocol. Z-Wave Plus ensures reliable communication by confirming all messages in two directions every time. It enables a greater communication range, which means that devices can be separated from each other over a greater distance without loss of signal quality. It is also more energy-efficient and safer than the previous version. Despite these improvements, Z-Wave Plus is backwards compatible with Z-Wave devices, which means new and older devices can work together in one system.
