Features

The WL4200C Water Leak Detector has the following features:

  • Ultra-precise perimeter cable that detects water* in hard-to-reach areas
  • Possibility to fix the detector on the wall or the floor to prevent it from being moved by using the provided fasteners
  • Detects water leaks over its entire length (7′)
  • Possibility to put two perimeter cables end to end to double the protected area
  • Audible alarm indicating water leak detection or low batteries
  • Perimeter cable made of conductive polymer resistant to corrosion and abrasion
  • Battery-powered (included)
*The cable also detects waste water, deionized water and a mixture of glycol and water.

Neviweb

  • Choose in which situation(s) you would like to receive alerts by email or push notification (detection of a leak, risk of frost, etc.)*
  Push notification Email alert
2nd gen. Wi-Fi Valve (VA4220WF) Yes Yes
2nd gen. Zigbee Valve (VA4220zb) Yes Yes
1st gen. Valve (VA4200WZ) Yes Yes
  • Connect the detectors to the valve and rename them in the app to quickly identify the source of the leak
  • Link your water leak detector with the Sedna Wi-Fi smart water valve to close the water inlet as soon as a leak is detected. The detector can also be connected to the GT130 gateway to close the Sinopé Zigbee valve.**
  • See the battery status directly in the app

  • Create automations in the app so that the other Sinopé connected devices in your smart home react when water is detected***
*Requires a Sinopé smart valve or Zigbee-compatible system, a permanent Internet connection and the Neviweb app available on the App Store and Google Play.

**IMPORTANT: In case of power failure, the signal between the water leak detector and your gateway Zigbee will not be possible. The close signal won't be able to reach the valve. For optimum protection, even in the event of a power failure, the Sedna VA4220WF-K5 water damage protection system is preferred.

***Available only with Sinopé Zigbee devices (requires GT130 gateway).

Power supply

2 AAA lithium batteries (included)

The battery life of the detector depends on the type of batteries used and the device to which it is connected:

 

Device Battery type Battery life (normal use)
2nd generation Sedna valve (VA4220WF/VA4221WF) Lithium 10 years
  Alkaline 5 years

1st generation Sedna valve (VA4200WZ/VA4201WZ)

Lithium

8 years

  Alkaline 

4 years

GT130 gateway or other Zigbee gateways Lithium

4 years

  Alkaline

2 years

Battery life is calculated based on optimal usage conditions and may vary slightly.
