EXTEND YOUR REACH...
Attach an optional 2.5m flood cord to your Floodie to cover a larger area. It will alert you if it comes into contact with water.
When it detects water, Floodie communicates with the orange Flowie water sensor which informs you via email, text message or mobile app notification of the presence of water. You will also be notified when/if the water clears.
What do the different coloured lights on Floodie mean?
After pulling the tab, when the sensor has a good connection with Flowie, it turns green. Red means it doesn’t have a good signal. It turns blue when it comes into contact with water. Most of the time, it is sleeping and has no colour.
Can Floodie work without a Flowie?
