Need A Device To Alarm On HA When Effluent Pump Fails

Looking for a Zigbee or Z-Wave device to report alarm on Home Assistant when effluent pump fails. This is a dry contact closure when tank level increases to alarm setpoint. It will be mounted in a dry enclosure and be battery operated. Thank you.

Any door/window sensor can be modified into a dry contact by removing the magnetic reed switch or bypassing it altogether. Have a look around here - there’s a couple of threads on this subject.

Alternatively, if you can’t be bothered to do any modifications, you can use a flood sensor. The probes on those are essentially dry contacts, and you can extend the probes on some models like the Aqara sensors without needing to open the device.

Thanks…I will look for some that can be easily modified.
