Interlogix TX-E611 - Flood & Freeze Sensor Reviews
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.
