The 2GIG-FT6-345 is a wireless water leak detector designed to provide timely notification before costly water damage and flooding happens. The 2GIG-FT6-345 contains a water tight housing that delivers drip, flood, and ambient temperature change notifications. With water damage being the #1 residential insurance claim, the 2GIG-FT6-345 is intended to limit the damage that water can cause to your home or business. The water leak detector is simple to install with no screws or tools needed. It is recommended you install the 2GIG-FT6-345 near washing machine, water heater, sink, toilet, bathtub, shower, dishwasher, dryer or under any U-shaped pipe that may be prone to leaking.
Once the detector probe detects the presence of water, the integral transmitter will immediately send a loop 3 wet alarm transmission to the panel. The detector will also send a restore (dry) report when the presence of water is no longer detected. The detector is capable of detecting clean or dirty fresh water, salt water and tap water. The 2GIG-FT6-345 utilizes a unique design that can detect leaks dripping onto its top or if there is water under the device. This dual sensing technology is perfect for placement under P Traps or hoses that may leak, giving a warning just as the leak starts. If a leak occurs at a different location, it will also be detected when the water is sensed under the device.
Metal contacts on the top and bottom of the 2GIG-FT6-345 detector can detect the presence of water. Be certain to place the detector in a manner that does not impede the detector's ability to detect water. Please note, do not place the 2GIG-FT6-345 on a metal or conductive surface. In areas where the detector could be accidentally moved, secure the detector in place with the provided double sided adhesive tape. Please note, make sure you secure the tape without covering any of the three metal contacts.
In addition to being a water leak detector, the 2GIG-FT6-345 can also sense environment temperature changes. If the temperature is more than 95° F (35°C) for three (3) minutes, the detector will send a loop 2 transmission. If the temperature is less than 95°F (35°C) for three (3) minutes, the detector will send a loop 2 clear. If the temperature is less than 41°F (5°C) for three (3) minutes, the detector will send a loop 1 transmission. In the temperature is more than 41°F (5°C) three (3) minutes, the detector will send a loop 1 clear.

I had a chance to see how this works. I put in pipe area and forgot of condensation from pipes and I put half paper towel under probe like suggested and water got on it. It went off and the alarm was very loud and worked great. Love it, and suggest it as a good unit for warning of water leaks. Recommend highly.
