To prevent water leak from causing damage, the use of centralized alarming system consisting of several water leak detectors can be placed in targeted areas. However, the installation costs for these types of alarming systems are high, especially in already finished buildings since they require a lot of wiring for handling of the alarming system. To solve this problem water leak detectors that use the ZigBee technology to communicate with a control center have been studied and developed in this work. Thanks to the wireless connection, the sensor is easy to place in any area where water leak detection is desired. The wireless water detector system in the ZigBee network has a very high reliability and a long battery lifetime of 10 years.
