It's an offer to Homecare customers via an email invite. It isn't in Rewards. Just had the email and claimed mine. And it is for the Water Leak sensor by the way.

Is this worth getting? Usually a trick involved
I think OP is taking the leak, no such offer when I checked rewards just now
nothing for me

Good to put in the bed
Not had my email yet
I've got one quite good
Had mine for a year or so make sure your taps are tight or you will get fed up of getting alerts
Just got the Samsung moisture sensor for smartthings and found it's really for leaks. I wanted to know when taps are left on - is that what this does?
I just ordered two. One for each home I have a homecare agreement active on. The order process was straight forward, took two minutes
I didn’t get an email and it’s not in my rewards section on British Gas.

Yep, it connects to Hive via the hub and the notifications come from them. I can only assume that it's picking up a change in temperature of the incoming water pipe but that's me just guessing. There can be a bit of a delay and the messages are a bit enigmatic, missing some crucial details from my perspective; such as when the event was first detected and if it's still actually ongoing. Still, it's better than not knowing at all

if you get a leak with Homecare there must be something wrong with the service....
Awesome. We’ll keep an eye out for the e-mail, got the bulbs previously, and we currently have a temperamental washer/dryer 🏻
Do the water Companies provide a Gas leak detector?

Hi @marshall-stephens if you want something more immediate near a troublesome appliance, I'd recommend Honeywell Leak Alarms or similar, they're cheap and cheerful (ish) and enable you to target certain areas with an almost immediate audible warning if water is leaking. I've popped a number of them under accessible pipes. It's the inaccessible pipes that are the tricky blighters.

Ok, so that theory is out the window. I thought the leak detector was for those that didn’t enter
