Greater Protection. Complete Security: How would you like a security system that provides complete security via a host of devices, including keypads, sirens, detectors and wireless keys, and also supports GSM and IP communications - all of it wirelessly? The DSC's 2-Way Wireless Security Suite delivers just that, and so much more.
Early Warning System Provides Peace-of-Mind: New to the DSC family of wireless sensors, the WS4985 Flood Detector is a wireless detector designed to work with the Alexor Wireless Panel as well as DSC 1-Way Wireless Receivers (see Compatibility List for further details). The WS4985 Flood Detector senses the presence of water in basements, laundry rooms, bathrooms, kitchen and numerous other areas where water may leak or food, prompting advance warning of potential flooding.
Ideal for Business & Your Own Home: Damage in a home or business due to flooding is one of the top claims to insurance companies. Not only can water completely destroy precious mementos but it can also wreak havoc with structural items such as floors, walls and electrical systems. Flood damage issues are expensive to fix and can increase future insurance rates. Early detection can easily save on insurance claims and reduce the hassle of costly repairs.
Simply & Small but with Powerful Results: The WS4985 is a 1-way wireless transmitter consisting of a probe connected to a wireless transmitter via a 6-foot (1.82 m) wire. The transmitter is installed at a higher level on the wall with the probe located at floor level or a desired height. In the event that there is a water leak, the probe will detect the moisture and deliver the information to the transmitter on the wall.
The transmitter then sends the signal to either the Alexor Wireless Panel or DSC 1-Way Wireless Receivers to trigger the alarm. It is important to note that although the probe is sensitive, it has been designed to be immune to false triggers such as floor mopping, because the sensor head is recessed into the probe’s housing.
24-7 Security: If the WS4985 is ever damaged or tampered with (perhaps if the wire between the transmitter and the probe is cut), its trouble status will immediately signal the Alexor or DSC 1-Way Wireless Receivers and the device will instantly notify the alarm system. The detector also communicates low battery issues.
