iHome's iSB02 leak sensor has been selected as the top pick for The Wirecutter's round up of smart home leak detectors. The Wirecutter, which is owned by The New York Times, tested five different leak sensors from across the industry, and the iSBO2 received a rave review:
After spending over 25 hours pouring water, mopping it up, and changing wet socks to test the performance of 12 smart leak detectors, we think the iHome Control Wi-Fi Dual Leak Sensor iSB02 is the best install-it-yourself water sensor for making sure a small leak doesn’t become a big problem.
The Wi-Fi–connected iHome iSB02 is reliable, and it’s sensitive enough to detect anything from small trickles to large leaks. Its two independent sensors (versus one for most detectors) trigger the loudest on-board alarm in the fastest amount of time, and it can optionally send smartphone alerts when either sensor detects water. It’s also more affordable than any other model we tested.
