With the DCH-S161 Wi-Fi water sensor, D-Link is introducing one of the first Google Assistant-compatible water sensors, which means that simple voice commands can be given to check for leaks within the home.
This new water sensor for the home represents an updated version of the DCH-S160 and introduces an all-new battery-powered solution for leak detection. With this simple device, homeowners have the potential to save themselves tons of money, as water damage can be one of the most costly home insurance claims.
By being able to get updates on their phone and ask for checks with their voice, homeowners are able to keep tabs on areas of concern within the home. In the case that a leak does happen to be detected, the sensor sends voice alerts via a Google Hub.
