Water Sensor
Model WA-434TL
The Water Sensor is designed to detect water overflow, water leakage,
or rising water, such as the water level of your bathtub. When water is
detected, the receiver will flash along with alert beeping or alarm.
Test Sensor
After learning the sensor to the receiver, you may test the communication
by placing the sensor into the water and removing it from the water.
In this package, you should find a water sensor, 3V lithium battery
(installed) and other mounting accessories.
Water Sensor
When the sensor is not in the water, the
receiver will not beep.
Please follow the instructions below to setup your water sensor.
When the sensor is in the water, the receiver
will beep and zone LED will flash.
1) Zone LED of this sensor will flash
2) Beeping according to the zone number [Alert Notification Switch is set
to "Alert"]. 1 beep for zone 1, 2 beeps for zone 2 etc, until the sensor
is removed from water.
Erasing a sensor
The sensor must be programmed to the Household Alert® Long Range
Receiver before they can communication. You may program the sensor
to one of the 4 zones. Follow the instructions below:
1. Plug in an AC adapter to the receiver.
2. The green LED will be on indicating it is turned on.
3. Open the back cover and there is a learn button. Press and hold this
learn button for 5 seconds, until both green LED and zone 1 red LED
flash. You may now release the learn button.
4. If you would like to program the sensor to zone 1, activate the
sensor while the zone 1 red LED is flashing. Activate the Water
Sensor by placing the sensor portion into the water.
5. If you would like to program the sensor to other zones, press the
learn button again, until the red LED flashes at the zone you want to
program the sensor to, then activate the sensor.
6. Once the sensor is programmed, the green LED will be steadily on
and none of the red zone LEDs will be on.
You cannot erase a specific sensor. You must erase all sensors from
the receiver, then program the ones you would like to keep. To erase
all the sensors from the receiver:
1. Remove the adapter from the receiver.
2. Open the back cover, press and hold the learn button. Do not
release the learn button until step 4.
3. While holding onto the learn button, plug in the adapter to the receiver.
4. You may release the learn button when the LEDs on the receiver are on.
5. You have erased all sensors from the receiver.
A clean smooth surface is required to mount the water sensor securely.
Mount the transmitter portion and sensor portion to the appropriate
location with double sided foam tape respectively.
If the mounting surface is not
smooth or clean enough for the
doubled sided tape, you may
screw the plastic plate onto the
surface, which then provides a
smooth & clean surface for the
double sided tape.
Always mount the transmitter
portion at least 6 inches
above the sensor portion.
Plug in the adapter to the receiver

Sensor portion being submerged
into the water, Receiver zone LED

Learn Button
Note: The transmitter
portion should never be
submerged in water.
Note: Each zone can program up to 4 sensors. If you try to program a
fifth sensor into a zone, the first programmed sensor will be erased.
After mounting the sensor, test the sensor by placing it into the water
and removing it from the water. The Receiver should respond in the
same way as described above.
There are 3 different operating modes for the Household Alert® Long
Range Receiver.
1) Alert - Beeps when a sensor is activated, corresponding zone LED
will also flash.
2) Alarm - Sounds an alarm when a sensor is activated, corresponding
zone LED will also flash.
3) Off - No audio sound will be emitted when sensor is activated.
Zone LED will flash to indicate the activated sensor.
To select the operating mode, place the
slide switch on the side at the desired setting:
OFF - No Audio
ALERT - Alert Mode
ALARM - Alarm Mode
When the battery level on the sensor drops to a certain level, or the
sensor is out of the operating range, the receiver will show a “loss of
signal” indication. The red LED representing that zone will flash rapidly,
i.e. if zone 1 sensor is lost, the zone 1 red LED will flash rapidly.
When the loss of signal indication occurs, move the receiver closer to the
corresponding sensor and trigger that sensor. If the red LED stops flashing rapidly, that means the receiver or sensor needs to be relocated. If the
“loss of signal” indication persists, replace the battery of that sensor.
The Household Alert® Long Range Receiver can work with up to 4
different sensors: garage door monitor sensor, door / window sensor,
water sensor, indoor/outdoor motion sensor, etc. Please visit or contact us at for
more information of how to fully utilize your Wireless Water Alert.
7. FCC
When the sensor portion detects water overflow, water leakage, or
rising water, the sensor will send a signal to the receiver. It will beep
and the corresponding zone red LED will flash for 15 seconds.
If the sensor is set to zone 1, zone 1 red LED on the receiver will flash,
and the receiver will emit a continuous “single beep”, i.e. “beep” pause,
“beep”, pause….. etc.
If the sensor is set to zone 4, zone 4 red LED will flash, and the receiver
will emit a continuous “4 beeps”, i.e. “beep beep beep beep” pause
“beep beep beep beep” pause ……etc.
By the number of beeps emitted by the receiver, user can identify which
zone is triggered.
When a sensor is triggered for a long period of time, you may stop the
buzzer by pressing the mute button. When another signal comes again,
you can disable the buzzer for all currently activated sensors by pressing
the mute button. The receive will beep again if it receives another signal.
For instance, if you are working in your
bathtub, you may want to disable the
buzzer for this only. Then you can
press the “Mute” button after it starts to
sound. If any other sensor is triggered,
the receiver will sound again.
When the receiver is in Alarm operation mode, it will sound its siren
when a sensor is activated. The maximum alarm duration is set for 3
minutes. To terminate the siren during the 3-min interval, press the mute
button. Although the alarm siren is terminated, if that sensor is still
activated, its corresponding LED will continue to flash.
