Moisture/Flood sensors

I have tried two different leak detectors.

The SmartThings leak detectors are for lying flat on a floor and monitor moisture.

The Everspring/Utilitech sensor is on a cord that allows you to place it directly above a drain or sump.

I use both, for different applications.

The Utilitech works great for drains or sumps, but the the Smartthings is better for sensing water on the floor. 

I attached the sensor on the Utilitech to the floor drain with a wire tie.

I had a cart full of items and was headed to the HA isle at Lowe's and a silly tornado warning dropped on the area.  I exited the building swiftly.

 

I want two for sump pits and perhaps one for the floor.  Then a switch module for the lights and a webcam.  That's how I'm thinking of attacking this room.

I just tried adding the aeotec water sensor as a thing, but it keeps getting detected as a zwave door sensor, not a moisture sensor.

 

any ideas on what I might be missing?

 

do I have to create a new device type?
