AKWA the 1st Water Alarm system on the market!
AKWA is the only solution that shuts off your water valve BEFORE any water leak. Hence, AKWA is the only true preventive solution on the market. In the event a water leakage does occur, our sensors send a signal to the water alarm controller, the main valve will be closed and you will be notified.
AKWA is the 1st Water Alarm system on the market. AKWA detects and stop leaks, but it also can shut the water BEFORE leaks occur. AKWA is designed to PREVENT and detect leaks and it is designed to bring peace of mind to both insurers and real estate owners.
SMS or email notifications
Each time a water puddle is detected, a leak alert is sounded, and the main valve is safely shut off. For each alarm, you will receive an email or SMS notifications indicating the zone status for your kitchen, toilet, dishwasher, water tank or washing machine. Notifications are available 24 / 7 / 365.
AKWA, a SMART and highly PERFORMING solution
1. Water Alarm Controller
This unit controls all of the water leak prevention and detection system components, including sensors, vacancy sensors and the main water valve.
2. Motorized Water Valve
The main water valve is closed when a leak is detected, or when AKWA is in prevention mode. The AKWA valve opens and closes quickly by means of an electric actuator. It is durable and its stainless steel body is designed especially for drinking water.
3. Water leak sensor
The water leak sensor is designed to stop leaks and to send a signal to the water alarm controller notifying the precise location of a puddle. The sensor is discreet and can easily fit under a sink, toilet or next to a water heater.
4. Vacancy sensor
The best protection will always be to close the main valve when you leave your home. In the event there is no movement in your home, the vacancy sensor signals the controller to close the main valve after a fixed preset delay (4, 8 or 12 hours). Once the delay is reached, the valve is automatically closed to avoid any potential leaks.
5. Peripheral cables
Perimeter cables are installed in areas where it is difficult to install water leak sensors. This type of sensor detects water droplets and is typically installed around water heaters, dishwashers or inside walls.
6. Rechargeable battery
Our AC/DC adaptor is also a rechargeable battery. If ever there is a power failure in your home, this battery keeps your system active and operational. By doing so, we keep managing the risks associated with water leaks, while allowing you to keep using the water supply for your daily activities.
