The Aqua-Scope water leak monitor detects water leaks and records the temperature, water pressure and with some version the water consumption. In combination with an Aqua-Scope remotely controlled shut-off valve, the system regularly searches for microleaks and shuts off the water if necessary. The user is then alerted via radio, both during such incidents and when pressure anomalies are detected. An additional wired flood sensor can be connected directly to the device. Furthermore, up to 10 additional wireless sensors can be distributed and connected throughout the building to detect water leakage and report it to the monitor via radio. The device consists of two parts:
Main Unit (Monitor): Detects water consumption and leaks by analyzing pressure waves; Records temperature, water consumption, and water pressure continuously; Wireless alerts for detected leaks or when pressure or temperature thresholds are exceeded or not reached; Option to connect an additional wired flood sensor directly to the device.
External Sensor Head: Connected to the water pipe, installed somewhere in the building at a 1/8-inch inspection opening, or with a provided T-piece under any sink at the angle valve.
Thanks to the excellent sound characteristics of water, a single sensor somewhere in the house is sufficient to detect water consumption and leaks throughout the entire building.
The device can be powered either by an external power supply with a USB-C adapter or by an optional internal ER26500 battery (Bobbin Cell C). Both the sensor head (IP67) and the main housing (IP65) are waterproof, allowing them to be used outdoors or in particularly damp and/or dirty environments.
The sensor is available for three different communication configurations:
The device is controlled through LoRaWAN commands, operating as a LoRaWAN Class A device. The use of the device requires LoRaWAN network coverage, such as 'The Things Network.' Otherwise, a dedicated LoRaWAN gateway must be installed and operated.
The device communicates via WLAN, either to the Aqua-Scope Cloud and consequently to a free app on mobile phones or PCs, or it can communicate via MQTT to a server of your choice. Additionally, it supports communication via a 'Webhook,' sending data as a JSON object to a Smart Home Gateway.
