This battery power device does not play MP3 tunes, but it does have an audible alarm output. The alarm sounds when a film of water bridges the contacts of the unit’s integrated electronic sensor. However, condensation or high humidity will not cause the sensor to trigger the alarm. Operating from a 9V battery that lasts about one year, the unit also provides an audible low battery “chirp” to warn of a low-battery condition. Typical applications include basement sump pumps, drain areas and sprinkler systems in residential homes, as well as commercial buildings.

Others refer to it as the Connected Industry, the smart factory concept, M2M, data extraction, and so on.
