Is the audible alarm for water sensor the same as the normal alarm?

Hi all. I was wondering what you hear exactly when the water sensor is tripped. Is it exactly the same as the burglar alarm? Thanks.

@Carlton76 it is different, and the base will say "Alert, water detected" and, of couse, no police dispatch. Long story but I know as my daughter got me at Ace while I was getting a part to repair my leaking sump pump and had to drive over to tell me the base was active and COPS had called. Yes, plumbing is not my strong suit!

Thanks Captain11. Does the alert stop on its own after a time or is there a way to stop it once I am alerted (besides getting the sensor to a dry area)? Thanks.

Hey Carlton76,

It works like other alarms in that regard - you can just cancel the alarm from your Keypad, Keyfob, or app.
