Description

The Interlogix TX-E611 is a dual-purpose sensor that offers both flood and freeze detection. Each function has its own unique serial number. This allows the sensor to be used both as a flood sensor and as a freeze sensor simultaneously or individually without the other. The small size of the sensor (2.5 inch diameter, 0.37 inch depth) allows it to be conveniently placed near sinks, toilets, sump pumps and hot water tanks. This is great for detecting any possible leaks that may occur in key areas. The device will also work great as a freeze sensor in these critical areas to avoid frozen pipes.

The TX-E611 sensor will activate within two seconds of detecting any water. When this occurs, the sensor will then send an alarm signal to the system to let it know about the leak. This will give the user an opportunity to address the issue before a serious flood or any serious water damage occurs. When used as a freeze sensor, the TX-E611 will activate upon sensing a temperature of less than 41° Fahrenheit. This will give the user the chance to address the issue of a broken HVAC unit before the pipes freeze. The condition on the system will return to normal once the sensor detects a temperature of 45° Fahrenheit or higher. Both the flood and freeze detection functions will need to be programmed with the panel separately, with each wireless zone having its own unique serial number.

We strongly recommend pairing the TX-E611 with the interactive services of Alarm.com. This way, a user can receive text and email alerts whenever the TX-E611 sensor activates. Receiving these alerts can be extremely useful if a water leak or a faulty HVAC unit occurs while the user is away. Local audible alarms from the system can be triggered based upon the zone's response type. If you have central station monitoring remember to clarify with your alarm company whether or not they should simply log alarms or call you. Adding flood and freeze protection to your home alarm system may result in added credits for your homeowner's insurance. Be sure to notify your agent after adding this device to qualify for any available discounts.

The TX-E611 communicates via 319.5 MHz (legacy Interlogix), and it will work with any Interlogix Simon Alarm System and any Qolsys Alarm System with a 319.5MHz daughtercard. All of these systems can sync with Alarm.com, as long as they have an active cellular communicator. The sensor uses a CR2450 battery, and it will require a replacement roughly every 10 years depending upon usage. Ideally, the sensor should be installed within 100 feet of the alarm system for optimal performance. However, it has been tested to work from up to 500 feet away in open air.

Tremendous Flood & Freeze Sensor
Submitted on 09/17/2019 Alarm Grid

The Interlogix TX-E611 is a flood and freeze sensor that operates at 319.5 MHz. This makes it compatible with the 319.5 MHz version of the IQ Panel 2 Plus and the Interlogix Simon Series Panels. Our technicians have found that the Interlogix TX-E611 works very well in all of its advertised areas. We think this is an outstanding sensor, and we rate it at a perfect 5 Stars.

A great aspect of the Interlogix TX-E611 is that it performs its flood detection function and its freeze detection function using one single zone. You do not need to program it to multiple zones to achieve full functionality. This is great if you are trying to conserve zones for use with other sensors. The sensor is also known for being quite small and compact. The round sensor is just 2.5 inches in diameter, and it is 0.37 inches deep. It responds within two (2) seconds of detecting water, and its low temperature sensor activates at 41 degrees Fahrenheit and below.

Needless to say, activating within two (2) seconds is very impressive for a flood sensor. And the sensor is quite versatile with its ability to work with virtually any 319.5 MHz system. It is recommended that the sensor be used within 100 feet of the security system if possible. However, our technicians have found that the sensor can communicate successfully from up to 500 feet away when used in an open air environment. The sensor should be placed in a location where it can quickly detect leaks. Good spots include near sinks, toilets, sump pumps, and hot water tanks.

Overall, we are very impressed with the performance of the Interlogix TX-E611. Its small and compact design lets it fit into tight corridors, and it works as described. This is a great sensor for anyone with a compatible 319.5 MHz system who needs reliable flood and freeze detection. We give it 5 Stars.
