This is not a commercial application, but I use an Insteon water leak sensor in my cellar, connected via wifi to a hub which plugs into a wifi router. Works like a charm.
The sensor is $35, the hub around $80.
There’s an iPhone app to check status, and label multiple sensors.
This sends an your email addresse(s) to you to alert on leak detection. I can detect no lag time in reporting. You can add additional sensors for monitoring additional areas, motion detection, or even video surveillance.
Sets up very easily.

While we have many items to share, we are also interested in knowing if anyone has experience with a water alarm that sends a message to a cell phone. If anyone uses the La Crosse Technology Alert -- https://www.lacrossetechnology.com/alerts/remote-water-leak-detector-early-warning-alerts.php <https://www.lacrossetechnology.com/alerts/remote-water-leak-detector-early-warning-alerts.php> -- or other similar system, we would appreciate hearing from you.
