Our technical team is on hand to solve any problems or help you find the ideal solution.
The FIBARO Flood Sensor can be placed on the floor where deployed probes will detect water below the device, or it can be wall mounted where an extended wire probe can be used to monitor from a distance. The sensor can be battery or mains powered, has a built in LED indicator / acoustic alarm and a tilt sensor that allows it to notify you when its being tampered with. Water detection is displayed as a notification or via the LED light, which doubles up as a Z-Wave network communication range indicator. The Flood Sensor will float on water and is un-submersible.
The FIBARO Flood Sensor is the perfect balance of design and practicality, attractive, simple and packed with state of the art technology.
Never miss a beat.
If the FIBARO Flood Sensor encounters a water leak or if someone tampers with the device, the system will send a notification to your smartphone.
Keep the FIBARO Flood Sensor close to important electrical equipment, setup an emergency shutdown scene should the sensor detect any water, the mains power can be shut off by the system. Alternatively if you have a Z-Wave electrovalve, you can setthe scene to automatically shut off the water in the event of a flood.
The convenient small size and aesthetically pleasing design means you can place the FIBARO Flood Sensor anywhere there is a flood risk, and it will do its job without being unsightly or intrusive. The sensor will keep you and your property safe and water damage free.
Adaptable to any situation
If you have a hard to reach spot or awkwardly shaped crevice a 3rd party* water probe can be installed to run down to the potential flood area.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Flood Sensor?
FIBARO Flood Sensor is a universal, Z-Wave compatible, flood and temperature sensor. Device can be battery (ca. 2 years battery life) or VDC powered (12 or 24 VDC). Flood alarm is sent to the Z-Wave network devices or additionally to any alarm system controller, through opening a NC contact. It is designed to be placed on the floor or on the wall with a flood sensor probe extended by connected wire. The device has a built-in LED indicator and an acoustic alarm. In addition, the sensor is equipped with a tilt sensor. LED diode signals flood, operating mode or the Z-Wave network communication range. FIBARO Flood Sensor is sink-proof, it drifts on the water surface and keeps on sending alarm signal in case of substantial inundation of water.
How to arm or disarm the Sensor?
FIBARO Flood Sensor is always armed when controlled by Home Center.
I have replaced the battery because FIBARO interface signaled its low state but I still see red, blinking battery icon. How to reset the battery level?
The battery level report is sent at the same time as sensor’s wake up. You can wait a specified period of time or perform manual wake up by triple clicking the TMP button.
The widget is in an alarm state (small blue drops) after the inclusion. Why?
The alarm state of the sensor is caused by tamper intrusion. There are two sources of tamper – one from opening the case (triggering the Button – Tamper switch) and one movement/position tamper. You have to close the sensor cover, put the device away and wait for reconfiguration or wake up event (it can take up to 1.5 hours depending on configuration).
I have recently installed an electrovalve on my main water supply and wanted to associate FIBARO Flood Sensor with it but “Association” field in Advanced configuration is empty. What is the problem?
Please reconfigure the device. It is not properly included.
Can I connect external voltage to SENS1 and SENS2 contacts?
No, Contacts SENS1 and SENS2 are dedicated to flood detection only.
I changed the Sensor’s location. Do I need to do anything?
When changing the Sensor’s location, it is recommended to wake up the device and reconfigure the Z-Wave network by triple clicking the TMP button.
I removed the battery and connected constant current power supply. Now the Sensor is invisible for the FIBARO system. Why?
Powering mode configuration is carried out automatically, while the sensor is being included into the Z-Wave network.
To switch to a constant current powering mode:
- Exclude a sensor from the Z-Wave network.
- Connect constant current power supply (12/24 VDC) to +12 and GND terminals
- Include the FIBARO Flood Sensor into the Z-Wave network.
In constant powering mode the sensor may operate without a battery. Installing the battery is recommended though, as it will serve as an emergency power source.
What features, comparing to battery mode, Flood Sensor offers in DC powering mode?
In DC powering mode the sensor does not require wake up, configuration and associations parameters are sent when necessary. In addition the sensor serves as a Z-Wave signal repeater.
May I switch powering modes freely?
No, exclusion and re-inclusion are always necessary.
May the battery serve as an emergency power source?
Yes, when constant power fails, sensor will automatically shift to an emergency mode. All reports, including flood and temperature, will be sent immediately, but it will not be possible to modify the configuration or association settings until constant power returns.
May the sensor be connected to an external flood probe?
Yes, the external flood sensor contacts may be extended by connected wire.
Is it possible to easily check if the sensor has a good Z-Wave range and can communicate with the FIBARO System?
Yes, FIBARO Flood Sensor has a built-in Z-Wave controller’s range tester.
Internal temperature sensor measures overstated temperature. Can I compensate it?
Yes, parameter 73 stores a temperature value to be added to or deducted from the current temperature measured, compensating the difference between air temperature and temperature at the floor level.
How many devices can be associated with a Flood Sensor?
FIBARO Flood Sensor allows for controlling 5 regular and 5 multichannel devices per an association group, out of which 1 field is reserved for the Z-Wave network main controller.
What is the Alarm Broadcast?
Broadcast mode allows to send alarms to all devices within the FIBARO Flood Sensor’s range with a priority over other communications.
Can I turn off acoustic and visual signals?
Yes, you can disable them in parameter 2. Available settings:
0 – acoustic and visual alarms inactive
1 – acoustic alarm inactive, visual alarm active
2 – acoustic alarm active, visual alarm inactive
3 – acoustic and visual alarms active
There was a flood detection but the sensor still detects flooding. What should I do?
You should edit parameter 1. It determines time period in seconds, by which a Flood Sensor will retain the flood state, after the flooding itself has ceased.
The Sensor reports tilt when it is moved accidentally. Can I turn off tilt sensor?
Yes, just edit parameter 74 and change its value to 0.
