Boat Bilge Water Alarm

I use an old Samsung S5 with a discount cell provider to run a hotspot on my boat 24/7. I’s flawless and I have a Wyze cam2 pointed at my breaker panel and bilge cycle counter so I can check my power connection and bilge pump use remotely. But what if a major leak begins and the bilge pump comes on once and stays on?
I took my smoke alarm and soldered a wire to each side of the test button circuit and ran the wires to a float switch just above the bilge pump float switch so the smoke alarm is activated by the higher float switch and with the Wyze cam alarm setting/smoke alarm=ON. Now my Wyze cam notifies me of a high bilge water event as well as smoke/fire. Thanks Wyze.

great idea! can i ask how much you are paying to keep that internet connection running? I understand you said it was a budget cell provider, but a number would be useful
