I just had a flood in my basement because no one saw the text from the water sensor, so I didn’t know the sump pump float got stuck during a crazy rain storm.
My only option at this point is to have a siren go off, and I have those connected to the window and door sensors. I don’t want to do that.
Why? Because I don’t want anyone running to one of the gun safes over a little water, and I don’t want anyone wandering downstairs to check out a flood to get killed by a home invader. There needs to be some sort of separate warning for infrastructure alerts and security alerts.
I looked and looked but didn’t find anything promising. Before I go and order these “Z-wave curtain modules” and hook them up to some sort of moderate tone generator like a doorbell, is there a device out there that would accomplish this task? The best I found was a siren with different user-selectable tones, but that was $100 and still too loud. A cheap doorbell is $12, and the curtain modules are about $16. I figure throw a flasher relay in between and I’ve got a reasonable tone generator.
But a factory solution is preferable. Any ideas?
