    To revive this thread a bit, and to answer your question... I was using the LeakSmart valve and sensors with a Wink Hub successfully, and I'm now using it with a SmartThings hub, so yes it can be used without the LeakSmart Hub.

    I found your thread because now I'm trying to include a LeakSmart valve in my HomeSeer HS3 system, which, because the valve is Zigbee, becomes more of a project for me because I don't even have the Zigbee system incorporated into my HS system yet.

    I'm going to be digging in (again) to mcsMQTT, to see if I can get it going. I'm ignorant enough to be dangerous (ie: completely) but hope I'll be able to get it working to be able to turn off the valve when I sense a leak with my Z-Wave leak sensors.

    So did you get anywhere with your Waxman LeakSmart yet?

    Kinetico Leak Detection System

    Hello,

    I recently had a Kinetico Leak Detection system installed. It came "free" with my new water softener.

    I'm wondering if I could somehow interface it with homeseer. Here's some details on the system:

    http://www.kineticomonitoring.com/im...ionSupport.pdf

    From a little googling of the FCC ID: 2AO5J-WLSHUB3, it looks like it's a whitelabeled product for Kinetico that is actually a Waxman Leaksmart Hub 3.0. Here is the full manual for that product on the FCC website: https://apps.fcc.gov/eas/GetApplicat...tml?id=3807731

    Here is the product page for the non-Kinetico branded product by Waxman, called the LeakSmart Protect: https://shopleaksmart.com/collection...mart-with-flow

    And their spec sheet: https://leaksmart.com/storage/2019/1...568.1596767529

    The individual Sensors, and the water valve, appear to use ZigBee chips to communicate to the hub (found via the IC ID on the sensors: http://www.cel.com/pdf/datasheets/EM...Modules_DS.pdf). This is confirmed in the press release by kinetico: https://www.kinetico.com/about-us/me...%20and%20Nest.

    The hub then uses 802.11 to connect back to the cloud for monitoring services and remote monitoring via their app.

    SOOOOOOOO...

    The question I guess I'm going to try and solve for is...
    1) Can I interface via the API (more desirable option)
    2) Can I interface via ZigBee (least desirable option and might not be possible, I think)

    Anyone have any experience with trying to do any home automation around a Waxman/Kinetico Leak detection system before I try to do it myself the hard way?
Working...
