Flood detector

An early warning of accidental flooding in the home.

A wireless sensor for flat surfaces

The Tunstall Flood Detector is a wireless, indoor sensor that gives early warning of potential flooding in the home and raises an alarm with the monitoring centre via a Lifeline home unit or other Tunstall telecare enabled system. It’s ideal for homeowners, residents or tenants living independently.

Detects and prevents flood damage


  • Provides reassurance and extra protection for people living independently.

  • Easy to install directly onto a flat surface, with no fixtures or fittings required
  • Reduces the consequences of flooding such as long term health impact, dangerous accidents and damage to furnishings and electrical equipment.
  • Reduces repair costs and helps to prevent increased insurance premiums.
  • Delivers coverage throughout the home with an extensive radio range of up to 50m.

How does it work?

The Tunstall Flood Detector can be placed on the floor under a sink, near a bath or by a toilet to detect early signs of flooding. When two of its three sensors make contact with water, an audible alarm is raised and an alert is sent to a Lifeline home unit or other Tunstall telecare enabled system. The monitoring centre receiving the alert can identify the type of detector and immediately arrange for the most appropriate action to be taken.
