Add sensor mod to Honeywell Lyric water detector to sense a power loss

Add sensor mod to Honeywell Lyric water detector to sense a power loss
Using an off the shelf Honeywell Lyric water leak detector (the one with WiFi) I want to replace the plug- in water sense cable with an active circuit that will detect a power loss (of 110vac from a receptacle) by tricking the detector to think it’s a leak, and send a message to my cell phone via WiFi.  It is to be used to make sure my separate Freezer in the garage does not lose power.   It is not for a total power loss.    Lyric was not in a Choose Device list, so I had to choose something!

ANSWERS:

"Have you looked at other devices which are designed to do this?

MOTOROLA Cellular-Connected MultiSensor Reports Temperature, Humidity, Water leaks, Acceleration/Earthquakes, Light Level, Power Loss, Model MC4000 This is what a few customers I support have used. Its the top end of protection! We used them in the wring closetsEaton Power Sensor Haven’t tried it but it maybe all you need.

I would look at something like these than try to re-design a device."
