D-Link Debuts Wi-Fi Water Sensor

Fountain Valley-based D-Link is making a further move into the home automation space, saying this morning that it has launched a new, Wi-Fi enabled water sensor product. D-Link says its sensor plugs into any open power outlet, and alerts users with a siren--and push notifications--if the sensor comes into contact with water. The new device is designed to detect water leaks from washing machines, water heaters, sinks, dishwashers, or other locations. D-Link said its Wi-Fi Water Sensor (DCH-S160) costs $59.99, and also is paired with a Wi-Fi Siren (DCH-S220) for $49.99.
