Z-Link LD-100 Leak Detector Device Handler?

Has anyone been able to connect a Z-Link LD-100 leak detector and temperature sensor to their SmartThings hub? The company doesn’t supply a device handler and it doesn’t show up in the list of vendors when including the device. After including by PIN, it just shows up as an open/close sensor, which will work for detecting leaks but I won’t get the temperature readings.

This device should just use the standard leak sensor DTH. Go into the IDE (https://account.smartthings.com) and go into devices, edut the device abd change its type to ZWave Leak sensor (or something similar)

That works for the leak detection, but doesn’t report the temperature. I’ll try some others that might work.

In the end, none of the Z-Wave Water sensor device types worked. None of them would report the state of the water sensor (though, ironically, the ones that had temperature capabilities did report the temperature).

I ended up going with the Z-Wave Door/Temperature sensor. It reports “Door Closed” when the leak sensor is dry, and “Door Open” when wet, and accurately reports the temperature.

I emailed them for a SmartThings DTH. In the mean time, the Fibaro Water Sensor ZW5 DTH works for water and battery. maybe temperature, but mine hasn’t sent a temperature report yet.

edit: temperature works too

Actually, I managed to reach them on the phone and they told me that using the “HomeSeer Perimeter Water Sensor HS-FS100-W” DTH would work for all features. Apparently it is the identical hardware, just sold under a different brand. I did install it and it works perfectly for this sensor!
