Homeowners, residents, and landlords understand the toll that water damage can create when not caught early. Out of the box, the mydlink Whole Home Smart Wi-Fi Water Leak Sensor Starter Kit (DCH-S1621KT) can monitor two areas and features an AC powered Master Smart Wi-Fi Water Leak Sensor (DCH-S162) as well as a Battery-powered Remote Water Sensing Pod (DCH-S163), triggering a siren, strobe light, and mobile alert when either device detects water. Additional remote water sensing pods (DCH-S163) can easily be added to the system for whole-home water leak monitoring for up to 16 areas in the home.
