Home automation manufacturer Fibaro today announced a new set of HomeKit-enabled products that offer basic motion detection and home security, as well as a Flood Sensor, which the company calls "the first water sensing and leak detection device in the Apple HomeKit ecosystem." Each of the three new products -- Fibaro Flood Sensor, Fibaro Motion Sensor and Fibaro Door/Window Sensor -- include Bluetooth low energy and are all compatible with Apple HomeKit.

The Flood Sensor detects water as soon as it appears, and warns users of potential impending water damage with an acoustic alarm system. Fibaro says the device can also "trigger a smart home scene," so users can connect the Flood Sensor to other HomeKit products to serve as a back-up warning system. Temperature detection is included as well so users can check the levels of rooms in their home, which the company says can be useful in the winter to "stay ahead of burst pipes and potential problems."

The other two products Fibaro announced focus on motion detection around a home and near its entryways. The Fibaro Motion Sensor measures movement, ambient temperature, and light intensity to accumulate information about a user's home and warn them about intrusions and other anomalies. Similarly, the Door/Window Sensor can be placed on any door or window to add another layer of security onto a home and alert users about security breaches for each potential entry point.

All three devices can be connected to the Fibaro iOS app [Direct Link], which includes features like device status checks and notifications. Thanks to the introduction of the new Home app in iOS 10 users can also access the Fibaro products directly through Apple's first-party app, as well as in Control Center, and use Siri to control their features. With Apple TV, users can check in on the Fibaro devices when they aren't home.

"Expanding our product line to include support for Apple HomeKit was a natural choice for Fibaro. The HomeKit platform offers a simple and secure solution for expanding the many benefits of smart home to a new category of consumers that up to this point, may not have had the means or knowledge to participate. Working with companies like Apple to expand the mainstream consumer smart home market is very exciting for us," said Rich Bira, Managing Director of Fibaro in the U.S.

The Poland-based company sells its products through authorized resellers -- like The Home Depot -- and has priced the Fibaro Flood Sensor at $59.99, Motion Sensor at $69.99, and Door/Window Sensor at $59.99.

I've two flood sensors built into the front of my head.
I'll set up a cot for you in my attic to monitor my furnace, then. Oh, and you'll also need to monitor my basement.

"Hey Siri, is my house flooded?"

"Sorry, I'm having trouble connecting to your devices."

$60 well spent.

I've been waiting for this. Basement flooded due to sump pump failure when we weren't home, but within an hour's drive. This is exactly what I've been looking for. This also avoids the need to go downstairs and check the undone area of the basement to confirm sump pump hasn't failed.
