Expand coverage and enhance aquarium leak detection capabilities of your HYDROS Rope Leak Sensor Extension Cable. The HYDROS Rope Leak Sensor Extension Cable is a HYDROS Sense Port accessory that allows you to conveniently customize aquarium leak detection by extending sensor range by an additional 4 feet. Simply connect to your existing HYDROS Rope Leak Sensor Kit and secure the Rope Leak Sensor around your aquarium, sump, stand, or wherever else you like for superior leak-detection coverage. Once properly integrated to your HYDROS Control aquarium controller platform, the HYDROS Rope Leak Sensor is powered by your HYDROS Control aquarium controller. By downloading the FREE HYDROS app, you can control any HYDROS-connected device with your Internet-enabled computer, smartphone, or tablet!

The HYDROS Leak Detection Rope Sensor is the first of its kind in the aquarium industry. The moment water comes into contact with it, that information can be used to alert you on your smartphone, sound an alarm, turn pumps off, and other actions that can protect your aquarium, home, or office from a total disaster. You can configure your HYDROS app to perform whatever action(s) you want to happen when a leak is detected - flash a specific light color on your HYDROS controller, turn off a pump, shut down your protein skimmer, send you a mobile alert so you can come home (or ask a friend to check on the tank). It’s easy to do and you’re in control.

Please Note: The HYDROS Rope Leak Sensor Extension Cable does NOT include mounting clips or adapter to connect to the HYDROS Control. HYDROS Rope Leak Sensor Kit and a Hydros Control aquarium controller with an available Sense Port required for operation. HYDROS Control aquarium controllers and other HYDROS accessories each sold separately.

Please Note: The HYDROS app is required to use your Internet-connected smart mobile device as a controller. The HYDROS app is downloadable via the Google Play Store and iOS App Store.

Why Use a Rope-Style Leak Detection Sensor? A problem with traditional solid surface leak sensors is that you have to buy several to really feel a sense of security. What are the odds water will pool in the exact spot where a single sensor sits? With a rope-style water sensor, you can simply wrap it around your aquarium, sump, stand, or wherever else you like. This type of sensor makes a lot more sense when you want leak detection security in a wider area. Plus, HYDROS leak detection rope sensors can be daisy-chained together to cover a larger perimeter for extra protection. Got a big tank? You can lengthen the line of defense around your large aquarium simply by connecting multiple rope sensors together. HYDROS Rope Leak Sensors do not need an additional power source, even if you connect multiple lengths together. Rope leak detectors do not occupy outlets on power strips or require a HYDROS Drive port connection to operate.

General Information Hydros aquarium controllers are the next generation of automated aquarium devices. Rather than relying on each individual device’s brain and programming capacity, the Hydros Control units have their own CPU and control capabilities. Hydros Control devices remove the problem of incompatible ports and need to continually add modules to expand your aquarium’s automation system. This new technology is called the Hydros Sense Port. The Sense Port is an entirely new concept in aquarium monitoring technology. A Sense Port is a generic input port that can accept data from numerous different types of sensors. Drive Ports provide 12-volt power for controlling ATO pumps, cooling fans, and other devices. Hydros is the future of automation!
