Despite its many short-comings, our 2nd gen Water/Soil-Moisture sensor has been a solid seller for many years. Yesterday we have sold the very last one of it. We realize that water leak detection is an important application for many of our customers.
We are pleased to announce that Quad Water Leak Sensor is now available for immediate shipment this week (order it here). We got the idea after talking with a customer who has bought tons of the 2nd gen Water sensor, and have been working on the product for over a year now. After many prototype iterations and a new clamshell (that itself went through 3~4 prototypes) to fit both this product and regular tags, everything is now finally ready.
Application of this new product will not be limited to water leak detection. If you use tags to monitor fridge temperature and has encountered short battery life and other issues related to condensation damaging the tags, this product should also provide a big improvement for you. Because it uses a larger battery, CR2450 (620mAh vs. 225mAh of CR2032 used in regular tags), the battery change interval will be longer. Because it has high quality water and scratch resistant coating over the entire circuit board, condensation damage will completely be a thing of the past. It is much smaller and less expensive than the Outdoor Probe which some of our customers were forced to choose to monitor fridge temperature to get longer battery life and resolve the condensation problem.
