      It works in Canada as noted by others in a previous thread.

      They probably mean it doesn't work in countries south of the equator, because as you know water circles the drain in the opposite direction south of the equator, and the detector has to be manufactured with an opposite-curl water inlet because of that. :)

      Otherquestions if you are aware

      Is the watersensor good to put in a sump pump pit to receive a notification if it gets fully submerged?
      is the motion sensor sensible enough to react if my cat moves near?
      The multipurpose sensor can be use a a motion sensor no?

      Motion sensor is pretty good...should pick up cat movements IMO.

      No, used mostly in cases such as door opens, knocks (detects vibrations), and has temperature

      I used the dlink one for sump pump at my inlaws. It's a better design i think as more adjustable with the cable to set the hèight.

      I have the system with several sensors, no issues whatsoever and battery life is impressive.
      I don't think the water severity should be submerged. It would probably float, but you'd probably want to deal it up with some hot glue to be sure. Or put it on a little piece of wood or something that would let the water contact the sensor, but float enough to prevent it being submerged.

      1. No I don't think it's designed for that personally.

      2. Yes it is unfortunately, my cat triggers it all the time.

      3. No it can't.

      If you're talking about the 3rd party smartapp that integrates MyQ into smartthings, you don't need the multi purpose sensor for the app to control your garage. But if you want the open/close status to be updated within smartthings then yes you need it.

    • I bought the hub and water sensor a few months ago but forgot i had the water leak sensor haha.Got to hook it up today.

      So using the hub i would connect all my smart items to it however would i sign out of wifi on all my items and then go to smartthings to connect them or when i add them to smart things they all just work off the hub so its not flooding my network?

    • One thing about these smartthings devices is they work well when they work but battery life is pretty brutal. The battery level is completelt inaccurate and they usually lose power when the battery level is at 66% or something likely that. I have a smartapp to report when devices haven't communicated in xx days because I had no idea my devices were losing power. I didn't even get a year out of any of them, even devices that are barely used (like the smartthings buttons).

      Something to keep in mind.

      I use the multipurpose sensor with MyQ using custom handlers/smartapp: https://github.com/brbeaird/SmartThings_MyQ

      Depends what you mean by motion. It does have an accelerometer so it would trigger any event if the device itself was in motion (eg. A door swinging open)

      that kinda sucks i wanted to use the waterleak to alert me if the water level goes too high in my sump pump pit

    • Yes. A hub is needed to communicate with the device. Google Assistant can then control the device via the hub.

      These devices don't use wifi. They connect directly to the hub using zigbee

      Yes, you need a hub.

      And as far as Google Assistant goes, you can add the smartthings hub to your google assistant account and all devices will be imported (some devices may show up twice so it's best to remove them from Google Assistant if they're connected to your hub) and google assistant will allow you to perform some routines but the integration is extremely limited. You won't be able to perform actions through smartthings automation.

      Would it be able to work the opposite or do you think the quality isn't up for that sort of thing.
      In other words submerging it in water 24/7/365 and if the water level goes below the device it will alert me.
      I'm thinking of putting it in a cistern or holding tank
