Extension cable for Water Detector (model 06010RM)

  • Question
  • Updated 1 year ago
I'm considering purchasing a Water Detector (model 06010RM) to be connected to an Outdoor Monitor (model 00275RM). However, the location for the Outdoor Monitor will be more than 5 feet away from the location of the Water Detector (it'll be about 8-10 feet away).

Is there an extension cable that can be purchased for the Water Detector? I would need a 3-5 foot extension.

The connectors shown in the photos within the Water Detector manual seems to look like a USB Mini-B connector. Can you please confirm the connector type and whether a standard USB Mini-B extension (or USB Mini-AB extension) can be used to extend the Water Detector cable?

Hello Mike,

We do not recommend using an extender with this unit.  Yes the connection is a mini USB.  Please let us know if you have any other questions.  Thank you and have a great day!

The usefulness of the probe would be greatly enhanced with the placement flexibility offered by an extension cable. Due to the shape of the indent at the back of the sensor, an extension cable is difficult to find. It would be great if Acurite could provide an option for those cases where the probe needs to be located a greater distance away from the sensor. Thanks.

Have you made a longer cable for the water sensor yet?
