Twine moisture sensor: April sale, how-to and more.

Posted by Supermechanical (Creator)

It’s that time of year. As they say, April showers bring May flowers (and flooded basements).

Moisture sensor special

Twine has already saved Rick and Ken’s basements from extensive damage — yours could be next! Rick sent us this tweet (you can check out how he set up his Twine in his blog):

Do you need a moisture sensor? For the rest of April only, get 10% off a moisture sensor or Twine + moisture sensor kit by entering coupon code SPIDERS at checkout.

How-To use the moisture sensor

Check out our blog to see how to set up your Twine to monitor your basement for flooding in 3 easy steps.

You can also use the Twine to monitor the sump pump in your basement. A moisture detection rule combined with a vibration rule to let you know when/if the pump turned on is the perfect solution for your personal flood zone in one box.
Don’t have a basement? Lucky you! You can also use the moisture sensor to monitor your AC drip pan.

We post how-tos on our blog every week. See how to turn your Twine into a motion sensor with the Breakout Board, or an exercise bike with the Cloud Shield.

What’s coming for Twine:

  • Support for ºC reporting and other surprises will be included in the next update!
  • We received our Pebble last week (it looks great on David’s arm), and we’re working with Pebble to add support for notifications.
  • The Davids are in the middle of a major change in the way Twine's radio subsystem works – this will give Twine a significant boost in battery life.
