Germany-based sanitary fittings manufacturer Grohe has released ‘Grohe Sense’ and ‘Grohe Sense Guard’ to let homeowners have a full check over water supply at homes. Grohe Sense is a smart home device that constantly monitors room temperature and humidity to alert users in case of flooding. Whereas, Grohe Sense Guard is a smart water controller that tracks water consumption, detects pipe breaks, leakages, frost risks, and if there is a pipe burst; it automatically shuts off the water supply and even sends instant alerts to the users.
Both the sensors function as a smart water security system that can be managed manually or remotely with the companion mobile app. Place the Grohe Sense on a flat surface in your home to get instant notifications of temperature, humidity, and other water-supply issues in your home, but keep in mind that multiple units have to be used to cover up an entire smart home.
You can use it in the bathroom, laundry room, cellar, kitchen, living room or wherever you expect a risk. On the other hand, Grohe Sense Guard needs to be installed on main pipe system of your home, so that it is able to block the water supply automatically if it senses a burst pipe.
