Pairing Your Smart Leak Detector

This article includes detailed information on the Smart Leak Detector, also known as the Smart Water Detector. It also refers to the Moen Smart Water app, also known as the Flo by Moen app.


Pairing your Smart Leak Detector with your Flo by  Moen APP

Before you get started, please make sure you’ve completed the following steps:

  • Download the Moen Smart Water app from App Store or Google Play
  • Create your free User account
  • Create and complete the information about your location

To start using your Smart Leak Detector, you’ll need to pair it to your Wi-Fi through the Moen Smart Water app. 

First, remove your Smart Leak Detector from the box and make sure you’re within range of your Wi-Fi router. Open the Moen Smart Water app. Make sure you’ve selected the correct location if you have more than one.

Then, select Add New Device, and add your Smart Leak Detector. Give your Smart Leak Detector a nickname. We recommend naming it with the location of where it will be placed for easy identification. 

Next, remove the Wall Mount from your Smart Leak Detector, then the top cover by twisting the Smart Leak Detector open. Remove the battery insulator to allow power to begin flowing through the Smart Leak Detector. When the Smart Leak Detector light begins blinking blue, it is ready to pair. If the light does not begin blinking blue after this step, press and hold the reset button located below the battery for 5 seconds to activate pairing mode.

Once you’ve checked both boxes and hit Next, you’ll be ready to connect your phone to the Smart Leak Detector.

You may skip the following step if you are on an Android smartphone, as it will automatically connect to your device for you. For iPhones, open the Wi-Fi settings on your phone and connect to your Smart Leak Detector. Select FloDetector on the Wi-Fi list, then return to the Moen Smart Water app. Standby while the firmware updates.

When the list of available Wi-Fi networks loads, choose your home Wi-Fi network and enter your Wi-Fi password. Wait a few minutes until pairing has completed.

If you have a Flo Smart Water Monitor and Shutoff and would like it to turn off your home’s water when the Smart Leak Detector senses water, you can choose that option at this time.

Next, you’ll be able to customize your alert settings for humidity, room temperature, and battery level. You will receive alerts on your smartphone, via the Moen Smart Water app, based on the thresholds you choose for these categories if you choose to enable them.

Congratulations! Your Smart Leak Detector is ready for use. Place it in your desired location to begin leak Detection.

You may pair multiple Smart Leak Detector to your account, along with the Flo Smart Water Monitor and Shutoff for whole-home protection from leaks and water damage.
