The AT301 is an advanced wirelessly controlled programmable Indoor/Outdoor Leak Detection System with a stainless steel automatic shutoff valve and a flow meter sensitive down to 1.25 ounces per minute. It is easily installed inline on your main incoming water pipe to the property, and acts as a Water Safety Trip Switch, monitoring all your downstream plumbing. It is designed to detect the difference between your normal water use and a leak, and will shut off the water if a leak is detected or a tap, hose or appliance is left running longer than the time allowance you set for your Home and Away modes.
The system is controlled by the portable wireless Control Panel that tells you the communication signal strength between it and the Control Unit on the valve at your property so you can choose a location for it that is convenient for you and, where the strength is 50% or greater. This Panel is used to program and operate all the functions of the system and receive audible and visual alerts when there is a leak or other issue. The system is powered by five AA alkaline batteries and one 9 Volt battery included in box so it needs no wiring or AC electrical connection at all! The system gives you a low battery warning but if they are not changed in time, the valve batteries will fail-safe shut before they completely run out of power.
By using an optional cable, the Control Unit can interface with your existing water meter, to show real time water consumption and cost information, but only if your existing city water meter is compatible and has been enabled with an output.
Note: When ordering, valve size MUST be the same size diameter as the pipe or smaller, for proper system functioning.
