Extending an Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem to detect water leaks is relatively simple. Any existing input can be connect to commercial available water ropes. These water ropes are constructed using conductive-polymer and fluoropolymer technology. This creates a sensing cable which is mechanically strong and resistant to corrosion and abrasion.The cable is constructed of two sensing wires, embedded in a fluoropolymer carrer rod. The input of the IoT device constantly monitors the sensing cable for continuity. This is triggered when water or moisture comes into contact with the rope.
