D-Link has announced that the DCH-S161 Wi-Fi Water Sensor is now one of the first on the market to work with the Google Assistant. Users now have extra peace of mind knowing they can conveniently ask the Google Assistant to find out if the DCH-S161 detects a water leak, even when they’re away from home. Just say “Hey Google, does the <sensor_name> detect a water leak?” The functionality is currently live without the need for firmware upgrades. Users simply need to link their mydlink account to the mydlink Smart Action for the Google Assistant.
About the DCH-S161
The DCH-S161 is a wireless sensor that helps to keep homes safe by detecting water leaks. It can be easily set up with the free mydlink app, and the DCH-S161 connects to your existing Wi-Fi router. Designed for convenient placement, the water sensor is wall mountable, battery-powered, and comes with a 5.9 ft. cable. When water is detected, the sensor’s alarm goes off and the LED light turns on, while the mydlink app sends push notifications to your mobile device wherever you are, so that you can act fast to prevent flooding.
The DCH-S161 Wi-Fi Water Sensor is currently available for purchase from D-Link resellers and distributors.
