The water leak detector keeps the lid on floody messes

The Vivint water alarm alerts you long before temperatures or moisture levels get out of control.

Water leak sensors save your stuff and your sanity

Accidents happen—appliances can leak, pipes can burst, and extreme temperatures can worsen these problems or cause new ones. With an advanced temperature gauge and fine-tuned moisture sensor, the right water leak detector catches subtle changes before they escalate into true hazards.

But the right water leak detector also needs to alert you in a timely way—and with Vivint, it does. You don’t have to be home to hear a water “alarm” going off, because there isn’t one. Instead, Vivint’s smart Wi-Fi water sensor pings your mobile app with any concerning signals, giving you time to get ahead of potential water damage to your hardwood floors, basement belongings, and pricey electronics.

Vivint water sensor alarm features

Moisture monitoring

Help prevent flood damage with a water-detecting flood sensor. When as little as ¼ inch of water covers the 470PB probe on Vivint’s Wi-Fi water leak detector, you'll get a mobile alert so you can shut off the water and minimize damage to your home.

Temperature monitoring

Extreme temperatures can contribute to water damage. The Vivint water leak sensor keeps your pipes from freezing and your water heater from corroding with immediate notifications when the temperature falls below (or rises above!) your specified range.

Cordless and wireless

The Vivint flood sensor operates via battery, so standing water won’t short the power cord before the flood detector can do its job. Plus, Wi-Fi syncs it with your whole smart home so you can let the plumber in or even take insurance claim photos remotely.


Just 1 inch of standing water in the home costs about $26,807 in repairs and replacements.

Vivint monitoring center

Vivint responds in 8 seconds on average

The Vivint Wi-Fi water sensor alerts only you, not the Vivint monitoring center, of moisture changes in your home so that first responders can focus on criminal or life-threatening events. But rest assured—when your home is the one experiencing a home invasion or carbon monoxide leak, a Vivint security agent will call within 8 seconds on average to verify the alarm, contact police, and help you decide what to do next. Here are even more reasons to trust Vivint monitoring when it matters:

  • 24/7 monitoring ensures safety day and night

  • 8-second average response time

  • Monitoring center staffs highly trained, in-house specialists, never outsourced hires

  • The center won 2017 Monitoring Center of the Year for excellent service and dependability
