How should I place my sensor?

Place the sensor with the battery door facing down. We recommend locations around the home that are susceptible to water damage or leaks (e.g. water heater, toilet, windowsills, etc.).

For low profile appliances or other hard-to-reach places, we recommend purchasing our SensXtend accessories which include a 4 ft Rope Sensor that can fit in tight spaces. The SensXtend dock can be mounted on the wall by using screws, magnet or adhesive accessories included with purchase. The rope should be laid across the area where leaks may occur; be careful not to cross the rope sensor over itself as false-positive leaks have been known to occur in this situation.
