I purchased last year and it just paid for itself. Toilet started massive leak and alarm sounded. Was able to get water shut off and cleaned up before any damage.
Was disappointed the app did not work because my "smart phone" had put the app into "deep sleep". This is not the fault of the app. Would like to know how to keep that from happening again.
I would like to have a way for GoVee to trigger a device that can shut off water to the home.
Bought this as a Gift for my Parents who own a 1912 home. The house has had problems since day one with water leaking in from ground water. We installed Sump Pumps but occasionally they fail or lose power so this was a good product to notification when that happend.
Got the 3 pack and placed them next to place in the basement the collect water first if pumps fail. They are very Loud you can hear them from other rooms.
I like that you can have multiple push notifications emails attached so if they aren't home we all get a email Immediately when a sensor gets wet. It great peace of mind and will save you thousands in insurance claims and hassle when a leak does occur. Perfect gift for the family home.
My parents are not tech savvy however once set up just check the batteries every 3-6 months or use the App which does give real time battery levels.
Pros: Good Value, set up time 40mins, Very Loud.
Cons: requires AC power for Gateway wish it had a battery/ac option for power outage.
Suggestions: A UPS battery backup for your home Internet and the Gateway will allow you to get push notifications if power outage (for short periods) if your using for my use case.
Still blows my mind that something so cheap can save you so much money. Insurance companies should be giving these out to every home. I have used these in 3 of my units and they have saved me several times. The cost, wifi feature, and ease of use make this product a no brainer.
I continue to be impressed with Govee products.These water detectors are well made and do a good job reacting and alerting you to leaks.They are wifi enabled so that you receive alerts on your phone.I've had two minor leaks since I installed the detectors and they worked flawlessly.Great product.
Devices are well worth the cost.You never know when the pipes in your sink start to deteriorate.My drain line did, and the alarm saved me from a flood that would have cost me thousands to repair a hardwood floor.Simple, quick setup and THEY WORK
