Once you've set up your Smart device correctly in the app, you can install or place your device and test it to ensure it is working as it should be.

  1. Place the Leak Detector on top of a damp paper towel so that the metal rings on the bottom of the detector make contact with the moisture NOTE: Do not immerse the leak detector completely in water as this will damage it!
  2. In a few seconds your leak detector will begin to alarm and the red LED on the cover near the Roost logo will blink. 
  3. To stop the leak detector alarm from sounding, dry off the metal rings on the bottom of the detector thoroughly, especially the small space between them.
  4. Shortly after your Roost leak detector begins to alarm, you should receive a push notification on your smartphone alerting you that there has been a leak.
  5. If you don't receive a push notification within a minute, please check your phone settings to make sure you've allowed push notifications from Roost and test again. 
  6. You can then place your Leak Detector anywhere you wish to monitor, as long as there is adequate Wi-Fi signal.
