Aeon Labs DSB45-ZWUS Z-Wave Water Sensor


The Aeon Labs Water Sensor is a battery-powered Z-Wave water sensor with an extremely small form factor. The water sensor will send radio signals up to 6 associated Z-Wave devices within its own Z-Wave network when the water probe detects water. Bidirectional mounting plate and push button allows for easy end-user installation. Capable of detecting both the absence and presence of water at measurements as small as 0.03% of an inch, the Aeon Labs Water Sensor also offers low-battery alerts


  • Presence of water. Water Sensor is able to detect the accidental presence of water, from small leaks to large floods, making it the perfect emergency accessory for your Z-Wave network.
  • Absence of water. Water Sensor can also detect the absence of water, meaning it's the perfect accessory for managing when water must be present for the likes of fish tanks and water tanks.
  • Accurate. Water Sensor is accurate, super accurate. It can detect the presence or absence of as little as 0.03% of an inch of water. That's less than a millimeter.
  • Z-Wave inside. Each Water Sensor is powered by the same technology and intelligence that binds all of Aeotec's products: Z-Wave.
  • Your Z-Wave system is as good as it is smart.Aeotec by Aeon Labs Water Sensor beings intelligence to a new level, one that is suited to both safety and convenience. copyright : LorenzHD Capable of detecting both the presence and absence of water up to as little as 3% each sensor is crafted into the smallest and most subtle of packages. Choosing the scenario you want will help you determine where best place to place your sensor. The most common scenario is detection of leaking water from the likes of a hot water system or an air conditioner. The other instances you may wish to detect when the level of water in a tank has decreased or increased pass a certain level.



  1. Although I do my best to verify every product that is reported as compatible, things do change.
    • Firmware updates to either hub might render previously-compatible devices inoperable. Usually, problems like this are reported and addressed by Wink.
  2. Inclusion in this Wiki is a very good indicator of compatibility, but is not a guarantee.
    • One thing to be aware of is that "ZWave Plus" devices might not work with the Wink Hub (1st version), though they should work with the Wink Hub 2.
  3. I use a Wink Hub 2 as my primary controller.
    • My testing is done on the Wink Hub 2.
    • I try to find out if devices reported by others are Hub 1 or Hub 2, but I'm not always able to find out.
  4. I am a beta tester.
    • This means my hub might work with a device that won't work for the general public.
    • I try to avoid adding article for devices that are only compatible with the Wink beta firmware, but sometimes, something slips through.
    • If I report that it works, but it does not work for you, chances are it will start working for you in the near future.
