Review - Sencentric’s SimpleSENCE Water Leak and Freeze Detector.

Sencentric’s SimpleSENCE water leak and freeze detector ($59.95) can be placed anywhere in your house and notify you when it detects water leaks and frozen pipes.

This small device connects to an app on your smartphone and alerts you when there’s a problem.

We tried it out in a damp basement and were able to find the source of a groundwater leak that periodically floods the area.

Other features include:

  • Wrap-around water sensors
  • It monitors ambient temperatures
  • You get instant notifications on your phone when it detects a problem
  • An audible alarm is activated, which is useful if you don’t have easy access to your phone
  • It boasts a two-year battery life
  • You can customize how you want to receive alerts including options for email and texts
