Water damage is a major risk for home-owners. 54 % of homes have experienced water damage, 65% of these related to pipe leaks. The average cost of repairing water damage is € 2,297, and in many cases the damage was not covered by home insurance. GROHE SENSE GUARD smart water controller is a clever, round-the-clock water detection system that detects pipe leaks and even dripping taps and in the case of a burst pipe shuts off the water supply. Furthermore, it constantly measures and compares water pressure, temperature, and flow against pre-set thresholds.

  • TARGET GROUPS Consumer / User

  • TARGET REGIONS Africa, Asia, Australia/Oceania, Europe, North America, South America

  • DEVELOPMENT TIME up to 12 months

  • DATE OF LAUNCH 2017

Soft lines and a friendly 'face' mark the design of the Grohe Sense Guard, an electronic system designed to prevent water leakage from interior pipes. The device pairs high-level functionality with a clean appearance. Even though it isn't visible after installation, this device unites beauty with a much-needed solution.
