SINOPÉ TECHNOLOGIES LAUNCHES SEDNA, THE FIRST SMART AND STAND-ALONE WATER LEAK PROTECTION SYSTEM DESIGNED IN CANADA
Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, QUEBEC (Oct. 23, 2018) – Canadian company Sinopé Technologies launches Sedna, a smart water leak protection system that works as a stand-alone, without requiring an intermediary or central management, even in the occurrence of a power or Internet failure. It is the first system of its kind designed in Canada.
As soon as one of the smart water leak detectors senses water as low as 0.015 inch, the valve shuts off the main water supply and an alert is sent by e-mail or SMS informing the user of the location of the leak and confirming that everything is under control.
Users are also informed of frost risks that can lead to broken pipes and when the devices’ batteries are low. They can see all their devices, and open and close the valve using the free Sinope Water Leak Protection app available on the App Store and Google Play.
With Sedna, Sinopé Technologies introduces two technical innovations. The hub built into the valve rather than being separate provides more reliability, facilitates the installation and contributes to reducing the cost of the system. Moreover, the valve operates under two communication protocols, Wi-Fi and Zigbee 3.0, which allows it to be integrated into an existing smart home system, and for the valve and the detectors to work even without an Internet connection.
“Sedna is the most interesting smart system for house and condo owners. It allows them to protect their home and belongings with unprecendented ease, reliability and efficiency”, said Sinopé Technologies founder and CEO François Houde.
The Sedna system is now available for purchase on Sinopé Technologies’ e-store. The Sedna5 Starter Kit including one smart valve and five smart water leak detectors is available from $449,95 at www.sinopetech.com/en/sedna. Smart water leak detectors can be added to the basic system.
Sinopé Technologies also has a professional platform designed for managers and condo owners allowing them to control many Sedna systems from only one management platform.
