AKWA, a SMART and highly PERFORMING solution
AKWA is a proven, tested and certified system that meets all the North America norms and standards, including FCC, IC (Industry Canada), NSF 61, ETL, and CE.
Our solution includes 6 major components:
The AKWA Water Alarm controller is smart, proactive and preventive
The AKWA controller is at the heart of our solution. This product integrates a series of smart features, such as:
- Connect AKWA to alarm systems (ex. ADT, CHUBB)
- Avoid water leaks by closing the valve BEFORE incidents
- Manage false alarms (ex. mop that touches probe) and keep valve open
- Avoid leaks outside buildings, thanks to our ‘Smart Flow’ feature
- Manage up to 64 zones in buildings = 99 zones
The AKWA motorized valve
The AKWA motorized valve is typically installed on the main water valve directly above your water tank.
If your residential unit is located in a multiplex building with a centralized water distribution system, it will then be installed on the main pipes entering your unit.
The motorized valve is also connected to the AKWA Water Alarm controller for an optimal reactive response, and the actuator (motor) can easily be removed in case of maintenance or repairs. The AKWA motorized valve also integrates a thermometric sensor that helps avoid freezing pipes by sending an alarm as soon as the temperature falls at low levels, i.e. 5 °C or 41 °F.

A high performance water leak sensor, with a discreet design
The AKWA leak sensor is designed to detect water puddles, with an unequaled precision and it remains active 24 / 7.
The AKWA sensor is the 1st one on the market with a ‘Smart Alarm’ function. This feature helps detect if a leak is real or not. In the event the alarm is false (ex. humid mop touches the probe), the main valve will remain open. This feature is essential if you want to avoid managing false alarms, and re-opening the valve every time you mop your floor…

The AKWA rechargeable battery
In the event a power failure affects your building, it is important to keep managing the risk associated with water leaks, while still using the water supply for your daily activities.
The AKWA AC/DC adaptor and rechargeable battery is designed to keep opened the main water valve and supply for a 5 hour period. In general, the average length of a power failure is estimated at 3.56 hours (according to Pollara, a research industry leader) and consequently the battery will allow users to keep using their water while still managing the risks associated with a potential leak.
