GROHE Sense and GROHE Sense Guard are GROHE’s latest intelligent solutions for the smart home. The GROHE Sense smart water sensor monitors room temperature and humidity, detects frost risk and gives warnings if the levels become too high or too low. GROHE Sense Guard is installed in the main water pipe and can stop water flow automatically in case of for example a major leak. Both use ground-breaking smart technology, allowing them to be monitored and controlled using the brand-new GROHE ONDUS App.
Preventable water damage GROHE Sense and GROHE Sense Guard have been created to address the issue of water damage in households as an underestimated risk as a survey conducted by GROHE earlier this year shows. Half of households in Europe have experienced water damage at least once – this is much more than participants suspected. As a report by the German Insurance Association has shown previously, 93% of the cases could have been prevented. As GROHE always wants to ensure that customers can enjoy their water experience, developing intelligent devices to monitor, prevent and stop water damage incidents has been a natural next step in product innovation.
Innovative products for a smarter future GROHE Sense is a smart water sensor. Easily placed on the floor, it detects water in the home. When water touches the base of the sensor due to for example a leak or flooding, GROHE Sense gives an alert. Moreover, the sensor tracks room temperature and humidity. Multiple devices across different rooms or at critical locations can facilitate detection of leaks. This makes it possible for the home owner to react quickly and prevent further damage.
Being installed in the central water pipe of the house by a professional installer, GROHE Sense Guard serves as smart water controller which detects frost risk or cracks in the downstream piping system and shuts off water supply automatically. A micro leak test is conducted once every 24 hours by which even the smallest leaks in the cold-water pipes can be detected. Even leaving a tap open will not remain unnoticed anymore! GROHE Sense Guard tracks water consumption and continually monitors water flow, pressure and temperature. Users can always check their individual water consumption at any time.
Combining GROHE Sense Guard with GROHE Sense, makes the water security system complete. In this way, also increasing humidity at home can be detected. The innovative GROHE Sense system is based on industry standard wireless LAN technology, controlled through the GROHE ONDUS App – the centerpiece of the GROHE Sense system. It offers the highest level of water safety, allowing to continually monitor and control GROHE Sense and GROHE Sense Guard – whenever and wherever. The users receive alerts on the smartphone connected to the internet when there is a water issue at home. Water supply can be shut off with the app to prevent major damage. Additionally, the app has a feature that allows users to track their domestic water consumption.
