Gearbest has the Xiaomi Aqara Smart Water Sensor for $13.86. Use coupon code GB11.11ConE for 17% off to drop the price to $11.50. Free shipping takes about a month to arrive.

This is a Zigbee sensor I believe. Works with Samsung Smartthings using a custom device handler. It can be tricky to pair to the hub but once set up, it works great. Cheaper than Samsung's own water sensors.

Pairing instructions to SmartThings can be found here: https://community.smartthings.com...r/97584/21

I have this. I hate the merchant but I can vouch for the product. It works on Smartthings with the device handler.

This is a very good price, last time bought it for 12.99.

As OP mentioned it is very tricky to add, after you added, it is solid.

Thanks OP.

Careful. The latest Smartthings updates pretty much broke compatability with a lot of ZigBee devices.
Be prepared for this NOT to work with Smartthings.
This is simply not true.

PITA to add unless you find the right instructions, but once I found the right place to look it was actually pretty easy and it works fine.

Yes. It is. Check their forums.
If it is not true how about YOU refund me the money for the 10+ Xiaomi devices that no longer work.
All of these worked fine for 6+ months until the last firmware update by Smartthings. Battery life is still great!

We are talking:
- motion sensor
- door sensors
- aqua sensors
Link? My water sensors work fine. Just tested them all last night.

I've been happy with the Dome ones. Happy being they've stayed connected and report wet/dry when submerged or not.

Xiaomi products are very finicky with SmartThings. My Aqara water sensors all stopped responding after a few weeks. I simply don't have the time to deal with re-pairing these Xiaomi devices every couple of weeks. They really had a lot of promise given their tiny form factor and price, but they're just not worth the headache to me.

Consider yourself lucky. I amassed over 30 Xiaomi devices before I ran into all the severe issues.

Mine worked fine until the latest firmware.
Now they are a bunch of bricks. The smartthings forum post for that firmware is flooded with posts reporting similar issues.

I think Smartthings is intentionally breaking compatibility with non ST devices.
