This wiki has been updated 5 times since it was first published in December of 2018. Fires and earthquakes may get all the press, but a humble water leak can ruin your abode just as effectively. These smart monitors use your Wi-Fi connection to let you know if anything's awry with your pipes, regardless of where you might be at the time. You'll get a text, email, or push notification as soon as something's amiss, allowing you to rush home or call a neighbor for help. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best smart home water monitor on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

January 01, 2019:

There are two basic types of monitor to choose from: one that you place in a location you fear might be susceptible to leaks, and another that threads into your existing pipes to check water flow. The latter are much more reliable (and can often allow you to shut off the supply in case of a burst pipe), but they're also more expensive and require at least a little bit of plumbing knowledge to install.

After getting his bachelor’s from the University of Texas, Quincy Miller moved out to Los Angeles, where he soon found work as a copywriter and researcher, specializing in health and wellness topics for a major online media brand. Quincy is also knowledgeable about home improvement, as he’s had extensive experience with everything from insulation to power tools to emergency room trips, sometimes in that order. Sharing a home with three dogs and a couple of cats has forced Quincy to learn as much as he can about pet supplies, animal nutrition and, most importantly, the best ways to tackle the mountains of fur that accumulate in every corner of your home.
