Hi,I was looking at the options here but didn't see any mention of leak detection. Has anyone implemented this and is it possible? Thanks

What do you mean by a leak, are you refering to a water detector?

Yes! I'm looking for a way to detect water leaks to complement the other sensors.

I think Smart Things have a water leak sensor
There are also modular water leak detectors which use a special cable . These can give a dry contact when there is water

You can get a basic water detector board which is a open circuit and attach it to a zone if water is present it will trigger any response that you set

This is a simple water detector I installed in sub floor level works well just connect to a zone!

Cheers. I'm sure someone somewhere put 240vac through it but that looks perfect for my use case (12v of course!). :)

If your connecting directly to a comfort system this works, you can also get water sensors that are on a flat pcb board that do exactly the same thing.....
