The Remote Water Control Switch
The Wireless Remote Switch key fob has a transmit range of 50 meters in clear-site of view or in doors, 20 – 40 metres. It will function between walls and two storey houses. It contains its own small 12v battery which should last many years.
Each unit has its own unique transmitter/receiver code to prevent two nearby transmitter interfering with each other. Any number of hand held remotes can be used in one property if required.
Apart from the obvious advantage and convenience of being able to control the water from anywhere, the remote also has THREE other very useful features.
- The bypass feature – Turns the monitoring off for 1 hour
- The Off Mode – Allows you to turn the water OFF for short periods of time. eg when away for a few days or on holiday.
- The Wet Pad Detectors – Sensors for leaks in vulnerable areas like washing machines and dishwashers (you will need to purchase Wetpads™ separately).
