Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does Not work Very disappointing. Easy to set up, install the Hive app and connect via Wifi. BUT the device doesn't detect water flow. I had the mains running for 30 minutes and the device did not pick it up. It should have warned me there was constant flow of more than 15 minutes. It just said everything was ok, no abnormal events detected. Phoned Technical Support and after a looong wait they suggested taking the batteries out and putting them in again. So I did that. Still it didn't detect anything. Finally returned it to Screwfix who refunded with no problem. Shame because it's a great idea. It just doesn't work, so don't waste your money.

Does this item need a hive subscription to work?

Asked by: EmmaK123
Hi there, great question! The Leak Sensor does require the subscription to allow the algorithm to monitor the flow of water in your home, however the good news is that when purchasing directly from Screw fFx this is included for 24 months as this is built into the price of the sensor. Thanks, The Hive Team. ^KO

How does the Hive water leak detectors work, flow in pipe or contact with water leaked

Asked by: johnyrainbow
Hey johnyrainbow, In short, it detects the flow of water in pipe as opposed to contact with leaking water. Please see more information here on our website: https://www.hivehome.com/services/hive-leak Thanks, ^Rhys

Does this price purchase the sensor or does it come with a plan?

Thinking of purchasing a leak sensor for my new hivehome dual channel receiver and 360 hub. Does this price of £79.99 cover me for 24 months of alerts or do I also need to pay £3.99 to hive for a leak plan?
Asked by: SpideRaY
Hi You'll be glad to hear that the £79.99 gives you 2 wonderful years of comfort knowing that you'll get alerts without having to pay anything extra for them. Hope this helps and have a great weekend ^GB
