I’ve read that the new (and old) SmartSense moisture sensor is not waterproof.
I was thinking about buying one to help me find a leak, but if they’re not waterproof, will they be damaged the first time they are sitting in a pool of water?
I also read somewhere that they wake themselves up every ~4 hours, which doesn’t seem frequent enough to help me catch this very finicky leak. Is that number accurate?
I’d love a bit more insight as to how exactly these sensors work so I can get a better understanding of whether or not I’d want to buy it to help catch this leak.
