DCH-S161 Wi-Fi Water Sensor

Dubai, The UAED-Link Corporation, a global leader in connectivity solutions for small, medium and large enterprise business networking, 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.

According to the vendor that makes solutions in the IP Surveillance, Wireless, Switching, Storage, Security, Cloud, VoIP, Print Servers, Structured Cabling, 3G/4G Routers, Power over Ethernet Kit, Powerline, KVM, Structured Cabling and Digital home offerings, 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.

Sakkeer Hussain, Director - Sales and Marketing, D-Link Middle East and Africa (MEA), said "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 currently works with the Google Assistant in English.
