How would a Z-Wave water sensor work in a smart home?

To begin “building” your smart home, you’ll first need to install the Z-Wave wireless network. Designed with usability in mind, there are numerous resources to help you in installing the network. From there, you’ll need to select a controller, or “hub,” which will function as the heart of your smart home, circulating messages and responding to alerts. Remember: though the Z-Wave network is strong and versatile, it’s also affordable, created for the average homeowner to afford, use, and maintain with relative ease.

Once the “hub” (sold separately) is connected to the network, smart devices are added one by one – a smart motion sensor here, a smart thermostat there, and a Z-Wave water sensor beneath the kitchen sink. Suddenly, the devices are reporting to you when and if they need attention. Meanwhile, once preferences are set, smart devices go to work, monitoring the safety and comfort of the home so you can rest easy.

Keep in mind that the more Z-Wave-enabled devices you have, the stronger your Z-Wave network will be. Z-Wave operates on a mesh network, which means that the more devices you have, the shorter the distance each signal has to travel.
