Internet-enabled leakage protection with intelligent water management
The SafeTech Connect continuously measures the flow rate and pressure and determines the water hardness. When using the intelligent, self-learning phase of the device, the SafeTech will adjust the settings to the measured results — for optimum protection and comfort.
If the leakage protector determines that consumption is unusually high, it will shut-off the pipe. In addition, the SafeTech Connect will do a microleakage test at regular intervals and will thus detect even the smallest of leaks. If the device is connected to the internet, an e-mail or text message will be given in case of failure.
The SafeTech Connect Leakage Protector can also operate as a “swarm”. In this event, one device functions as a control center, registers the data retrieved from the connected devices, analyses them and acts correspondingly. That way, different areas of a building, entire apartment buildings and large-scale objects can be secured and controlled. This system can be combined with the SafeFloor Connect radio-controlled floor sensors.
- Individual safety > During the self-learning phase, the SafeTech Connect registers your consumption patterns and adjusts its settings accordingly, so that you can enjoy optimum safety without any loss in terms of comfort. The SafeTech will check water volumes per draw-off operation several times per day and will figure out one level for your presence and one for your absence. You may also set a time span during which water may run. All the settings can be retrieved and modified via the SYR App.
- Detects pipe damage, interrupts the supply of water > In case of a pipe burst, large amounts of water escape at once. The SafeTech Connect detects unusually high water flows within short time spans and isolates the pipe system. The time till shut-off depends upon your respective setting. Therefore, we suggest that you also mount a SafeFloor at critical locations. Irrespective of the chosen setting, it detects local leaks and notifies the SafeTech — which shuts-off the water supply!
- Detects microleakage > Even the smallest amounts of water that leak over months without notice can cause costly damage to walls, floors, and ceilings. The SafeTech detects such microleakage thanks to a special technology, even if it falls below the preset threshold. If derogations are too high, the system notifies the presence of potential microleakage.
- Determines water hardness > The SafeTech automatically determines water hardness. Excessive lime levels in the water cause trouble: limescale occurs in household appliances, persistent and annoying stains on glass surfaces or on tiles appear, pipes clog up. React in good time and enjoy the comfort and benefit of noticeably soft water — your installer will gladly help you choose your water softening system.
Installing the SafeTech Connect
A qualified installer will mount the smart leakage detector directly in the pipe, at the entry point of the domestic water supply. The system then continuously monitors the drinking water, and checks and controls the connected SafeFloor sensors.
Easy Control Via SYR Plus APP
Of course, our intelligent leakage protection would not really be smart if it could not be controlled from anywhere. Do you want to go on holiday? No problem — thanks to the SYR App, everything in your home can be monitored at a glance, anytime, and the water in your home is under control. Cutting off the domestic water supply altogether is a thing of the past: today, via the Internet, you can set the exact amount of water your friendly neighbor needs to water the plants.
The SYR CONNECT system provides smart intelligence for your domestic installation. CONNECT represents the combination of valves, control electronics and the internet. All our SYR Connect valves and models are internet-enabled and send their status to a central server. Preset parameters are compared with the actual parameters, and the system acts accordingly. Statistics are kept on all aspects and can be retrieved via the SYR App online.
The SYR App monitors and controls the SYR CONNECT modules that communicate with each other.

PVC Threaded and Glue Fittings
PVC(Polyvinyl chloride) fittings are used to connect sections of pipes or tubes, adapt to different sizes or shapes, and controlling the flow of water. There are two predominant types of PVC fittings namely PVC Glue Fittings and PVC Threaded Fittings. The difference between the two is that PVC Glue Fittings result in permanent joints and PVC Threaded Fittings are semi-permanent and can be replaced. PVC Glue fittings are joined with primer and cement- a chemical solvent that melts the surface of the PVC and then quickly re-hardens to fuse the pieces together. This results in an airtight, leak-proof bond similar to what you get with welding metal. An example of such a fitting is a PVC Glue Reducing Socket which is used to join together two pieces of PVC pipes with different diameters. Another example would be a 90 Degree Elbow which is used to connect two pipes of the same diameter at an angle of 90 degrees.PVC Threaded fittings utilise a simple threaded connection whereby replaceable 'male threaded' are screwed into 'female threaded'.Male threads have a thread on the outside of the fitting and female threads have a thread on the inside. When you thread the fitting in, it compresses against the other threads.PTFE tape is used to thread these together and the proper way to assemble threaded fittings is to finger tighten, then add one to two turns but no more. An example of a threaded fitting is a Reducing Nipple Male Threaded which is used to connect between two female threads of different diameters.
