I purchased this on Prime Day as well and have not had as much luck. I get false positives quite often and after working with their support team it seems as though they are related to pressure fluctuations on my line that appear as usage.

"I'm really sorry but it appears these small usage amounts are coming from pressure fluctuations.

When the triangle on your meter fluctuates back and forth, it implies that there are pressure fluctuations in the system. And when this happens, water flows back and forth across your water meter. We can filter some of that out. However, when the fluctuations get big enough, we have a hard time distinguishing between real water use and these disturbances. "

I think this is the lowest price I've seen in this. I have had this for about 6 months. My first unit was defective and they replaced it after troubleshooting a bit. Since the replacement it has worked well. It will detect if I have a dripping faucet, I would estimate it detects anything more than one drip per second. Less than that and it may not detect the leak. I plan to add a dome shutoff valve so I can turn off the water main if I'm not home. I looked at the moen all in one solution but the cost of a plumber for install would add significantly to the overall cost.

I bought one of these on prime day. It works well. Setup was a little tricky if your router dynamically handles 2.4/5 GHz connections without exposing which one you're on. Otherwise no issues. It will definitely detect a dripping toilet. You can set up various usage alerts like short duration high flow that might indicate a catastrophic leak or a long duration low flow that might indicate a drip.

I haven't paired this with a automatic shut off yet but plan to in the future. I'm a little hesitant with the Dome because my valve is fairly stiff, and the in line systems are significantly more expensive and require plumbing work.

I have it and am happy with it so far. I only get billed for water every 3 months, so I wanted better insight into day to day usage. This has really helped with that need so far. I have set up alerts for running water but not had any incidents so far.

I have a 2.4/5GHz network and have not had any issues so far. The bridge connected easily and has remained connected consistently.
I wish there was an ethernet port, since the bridge sits in the same place as my network gear anyways.

How far from the house/wifi router are your water meters? If the unit straps to the meter in a hole 50' or so from the house, I'm concerned it will be difficult to get a good wifi signal out to the meter.

This doesn't work with all meters. Didn't work on mine and had to return unfortunately.

I am really not able to understand, how this will deduct the leak and/or the faucet drippings. Any one please chime on.

How long was it running that you didnt notice? The average price of water in the United States is about $1.50 for 1,000 gallons. So you would have to have your toilet run and waste 400,000 gallons to get hit with a $600 bill.

The unit doesn't use Wi-Fi to communicate to the water meter detector. The detector sends low power radio signals to a bridge inside the home, which then uses WiFi to connect to your router

Found below info on Amazon:

The Sensor works on both outside and indoor water meters within 1000ft reach of the Flume Bridge and is compatible with most water meters used in the United States today. However, you should check to see if your meter is compatible before you purchase a Flume device. The following water meters are NOT compatible with our water sensor:

E-Series
iPerl
Master Meter (1 inch and above)
To determine the type of meter you have, you can look on the dial of the water meter. If you have questions, please visit the Flume online. Flume is only licensed for use in the United States. We will not be responsible for support for use outside of the U.S.

So the sensor itself runs on (4) AA batteries? How long will the sensor go between battery changes?
