GROHE Sense Guard: The smart water controller
Welcome to GROHE Sense Guard – the innovative smart water control system that is a real life-changer. The German-made device monitors the flow, pressure and temperature of water in the pipes 24/7. One look at your smartphone tells you all you need to know! The Aquablock function shuts off the water automatically if a pipe bursts*. Even micro leaks** – which can go unnoticed for a long time and lead to lasting damage – are identified. That means total peace of mind even when you are away from home or on holiday!
The smart Aqua IQ function learns your patterns of water consumption and detects anomalies*** and AquaTrack generates a comprehensive picture of your household usage. The risk of frost damage is reduced as GROHE Sense Guard also assesses water temperature and alerts you if it might freeze. If there is a power failure, however, the system will not shut off the water in case it is still needed and if the WLAN drops it still operates perfectly.
The GROHE Ondus app is the hub of the system. It takes seconds to download and gives you instant control, allowing you to monitor your water supply, customize your settings and also turn off the water manually. Additionally, with the Nest® Home/Away Assist function, GROHE Sense Guard will even turn off your water supply automatically whenever you leave home and turn it on again when you return.
For a qualified installer, fitting GROHE Sense Guard is a simple job using the wall-mount set (22501000). It takes only about an hour.
GROHE Sense Guard – stops leaks and reduces water damage to the minimum!
* GROHE defines a pipe burst as a complete hole or crack in the downstream piping system that results in an unintended release of water at close to maximum flow rate. Pipe burst detection depends on the general water usage profile so the time-lag to shut-off can vary significantly. During the delay water might escape. Achieve a higher detection speed by combining the installation with GROHE Sense at critical locations.
** A micro leak test is conducted once every 24 hours. Pipe material, volume and other piping system characteristics can impact the result. Micro leak detection is limited to the cold water system in most cases. Combine with GROHE Sense to monitor potential humidity increases over time.
*** Detection speed depends on the water usage profile of the house. Achieve a higher detection speed by combining the installation with GROHE Sense at critical locations.
