So I work for Honeywell and we just came out with a wifi leak detector where one can place the sensor anywhere. A water leak will trigger an alert to your smartphone. I decided to by 2 of these and plan on placing one in my O'Day on the floor while I am gone (the other one will go next to my sump pump at home). The marina I purchased a slip in has wifi so this should work. I plan on leaving a key for my hatch lock to the marina president who lives close by to possible go to the boat on a leak detection and see what he can do. This might just stop me from showing up and finding my boat totally submersed some day.
Just curious if anybody else uses any type of water leak detector while their boat sits in their slip?
Your detectors sound intriguing. Are they on the market yet?
Because we sometimes spend time away from the boat [and are often a day's commute away...] I ended up installing a cell based monitoring system which alerts by sending SMS messages to cell phones we select. [We also have a caretaker we can call...]
It monitors water leaks by alerting about bilge pump cycles and duration, high water alerts based upon sensor location, much more including: battery voltage, shore power, intrusion detection, geo-fence alerts, etc.
Here is my blog post
about the system if you are interested in more information.
Best wishes with your new set-up.
PS: For local alarms in other locations of the boat [e.g., under sinks, on hull next to fresh water tanks, remote bilge locations, etc.] we use these floating [important to keep signaling...], loud, portable units from Zircon
