WaterBug sensors work by forming a conductive bridge between two contacts. The device uses a 9V battery for stand-alone operation.
Another Winland Electronics product sold at Home Security Store is the EA200 - WINLAND ENVIRO ALERT which works with the Water Bug.The EA200 monitors two zones with one on-board temperature sensor and an additional remote temperature, humidity, or water sensing probe. If temperatures and/or humidity deviate from the preset limits or water forms a bridge between the contacts on the WaterBug sensor, the designated relay for each zone will activate the alarm, dialer, transmitter, or other alert unit.
