Strips Drip 700/800 water leak sensor also comes with temperature alerts for detecting freezing pipes, which makes it ideal for monitoring any area where a leak might occur. Drip offers a range of up to 100 meters, and with its sturdy design, these sensors can be installed in environmentally challenging areas such as in cellars or employed in outdoor environments such as under the roof where water might leak into the house structure.

Switch-LoRaWAN

Strips is one of the first sensors on the market with the latest Z-Wave™ technology. Strips comes with Smart Start to reduce the time for installation for service providers, installers and end-users. It comes with a longer range of up to 100 meters (+150% compared with 500 series), increased security and even longer battery lifetime than before.

Through your Smart Home or building system, you will then be updated in real-time and notified whenever there is a build up or presence of water. With Strips Drip’s temperature measuring (of +/- 4C), you can also keep track of alarming heat levels as well as freezing conditions, so that you will be alerted in real-time whenever you need to take action such as activating an alarm or automatically turning off the water-flow in the house or apartment.

Whether your interest is in smart home or apartment applications or IoT applications for businesses, using Z-Wave™ Strips sensors brings a wealth of valued features such as ultra-slim discreet form factor and low power consumption for extended battery life (up to 10 years).

Add Drip to your Z-Wave™ Controller

Drip is a SmartStart enabled product and can be added to a Z-Wave™ network by using SmartStart. Start by scanning the Z-Wave™ QR Code present on the back label of the Strips, or on the DSK leaflet present in the box. Strips can be added to both secure and non-secure controllers and with or without SmartStart.

*US and Canada users can also add Strips as Long Range secure with SmartStart. Your device supports Long Range only if it has the following logo on the product box and Strips

Add Strips Drip 700/800 using SmartStart inclusion

You can use this method of inclusion only if your Z-Wave™ Controller supports SmartStart

  1. Open your Z-Wave™ Controller’s app and select SmartStart pairing.
  2. Scan the QR Code (You can find the QR Code on the back of Strips or in the package).
  3. Remove the magnets from Strips (If you have previously removed the magnets from Strips, or need to re-add the device, performing a manual wake up will join the device when the controller is in pairing mode).

qr-backside

SmartStart will automatically begin 30 seconds after removing the magnets and Strips will be added within 10 minutes when it has been activated within the Z-Wave™ Controller range.

  1. One long LED blink means Strips has been successfully added to your Z-Wave™ network.

Note:

  • Once the device is in SmartStart mode and not paired, it will attempt pairing with SmartStart for the first 15 mins, and thereafter every 3.5 hrs for a period of a month.
  • If SmartStart fails pairing the first time, Strips will restart SmartStart. If it fails again, the device will reset.
  • If none of the above is successful, you need to perform a manual wake-up to start SmartStart.
  • In order to cancel SmartStart mode, the user can perform a Factory Default Reset


Add Strips Drip 700/800 using classic inclusion (Non SmartStart Controllers)

  1. Open your Z-Wave™ Controller application and start pairing mode.
  2. Remove the magnets from Strips (If you have previously removed the magnets from Strips, or need to re-add the device, performing a manual wake up will join the device when the controller is in pairing mode).
  3. One long LED blink means Strips has been successfully added to your Z-Wave™ network.

To perform a manual wake up (video):

  1. Take the magnet, move it to the rounded edge and wait for the blink. Then move the magnet away.
  2. Repeat this 3 times. A final short blink will confirm that the user command was successful.

Strips and radio communication

Strips uses low power radio signals to communicate with your Z-Wave™ controller. For best results, please consider the following:

Strips should not be mounted directly on metal, magnetic surfaces or encased within a metal structure as the range will reduced. Strips’ range is up to 100 meters. (325 feet) Any non-battery Z-Wave™ device will act as an extender to increase network reliability and range.

Poor network reliability will affect Strips’ battery life. To make sure that you have a good network, place Strips at its intended location and perform a Wake Up (see below). If Strips blinks 5 times, this indicates that Strips failed to communicate with the controller. If it happens you may move the Z-Wave™ controller closer or add an extender between the controller and Strips sensor.

To perform a manual wake up:

  1. Take the magnet, move it to the rounded edge and wait for the blink. Then move the magnet away.
  2. Repeat this 3 times. A final short blink will confirm that the user command was successful.

Test Strips has been included to your Z-Wave™ controller

Make sure Strips Drip 700/800 is connected to your controller

To test the Strips Drip 700/800, please follow the steps below:

You may verify that your Z-Wave™ controller shows Strips Drip reporting correctly by holding it firmly according to the illustration above for >5 seconds. Strips Drip will sense the moisture level and send a leakage alarm. After removing your hand, the water leakage alarm should disappear.

Strips Drip includes a mounting plate with built-in moisture detection pads. Strips Drip should be mounted on the mounting plate immediately after completing the inclusion process. This is in order to calibrate the leakage sensor correctly. Keep the moisture detection pads dry for the first 2 hours for a proper leakage sensor calibration.

Mounting Strips

Mounting Strips Drip 700/800

Remove the protective tape from Strips Drip adhesive. Mount Strips Drip on the marked “Strips Side” of the mounting plate as illustrated above.

You can choose one of the three alternatives for mounting Strips:

a) Place Strips in the intended location. b) Use the adhesive on the mounting plate to place it firmly in the right place. Please make sure the surface is clean, dry and at least +10°C (+50°F). Remove the protective tape from the mounting plate and place Strips Drip firmly on the surface. c) Use screws to mount Strips on its location. Use the plate to mark the holes and use flat screw heads. Note that the adhesive is permanent and may damage your Strips or surface upon removal. If you need to remove Strips make sure to follow the necessary steps (Find the instructions on ourwebsite).

If Strips Drip 700/800: in case of a water-leak occurs

Your Strips Drip is now mounted and added to your Z-Wave™ controller. It will detect temperature and moisture levels that may be used for alarms or controlling other devices. Strips Drip analyzes the moisture of the pads to indicate a leak. You should not remove Strips if a leak occurs. The sensor podswill dry after the water has been removed. You may use a cloth to dry carefully around the soaking pads for a faster drying.

Removing Strips from its mounted position

To easily remove Strips when the sensor is mounted with the adhesive backing, simply get floss or something similar, and gently draw it behind the back of the device and the surface it is mounted on and run the string up or down the length of the Strip, removing it from the surface.

Wake Up

To wake up Strips manually for communication with the Z-Wave™ controller:

  1. Take the magnet, move it to the rounded edge and wait for the blink. Then move the magnet away.
  2. Repeat this 3 times in total. A final short blink will confirm that the user command was successful.


Add/Remove Strips

Place the controller into pairing or remove mode and perform the "wake up" pattern.


Factory Default Reset

You may need to reset Strips if your Z-Wave™ controller is missing or not responding. Follow the instructions for Wake Up, but on the 3rd repetition, keep the magnet at the rounded edge for 10 seconds. A long LED signal indicates success.


Tamper

Strips will send a tamper alert if it detects that someone tries to wake up or manipulate Strips.

LED notifications

How do to a LED Blink test:


  • User feedback during commands
  • Successfully sent report
  • The notification when Strips is added to a network

The notification when Strips is not added to a network.

A user command is successfully executed.

Error (e.g. communication with controller failed).

Important Information

  • Do not re-pack Strips with magnets attached after including them in your system or removing the magnets

  • The drivers meant for 700-series Strips work seamlessly with the 800-series as well. Devices falling under the 800-series might be recognized as 700-series.
