Can Samsung SmartThings Water Leak Sensor be submerged?

Last Update Date : Dec 19. 2017

Water Leak Sensors should not be completely submerged. Water Leak Sensors are water resistant, but not waterproof. If water gets inside the casing, it can damage the batteries and sensor. Check for discoloration around the batteries as a sign of water damage.


To test the sensor (without submerging it), press a damp paper towel against the two metal moisture contacts on the back of the device.
