Will the Control still protect my house from leaks if the Wi-Fi goes out?

The Control will still shut your water off if it detects a leak, even if it does not have an active Wi-Fi connection, as long as Auto-Shut is enabled in the Streamlabs Control settings. Auto-Shut will close the valve any time a leak is detected, with or without Wi-Fi. To check if you have Auto-Shut enabled, follow the steps below.

  1. Open the Streamlabs app.
  2. Click on your Control.
  3. Click on the settings wheel (gear icon) in the top right corner.
  4. Click on "Alerts".
  5. Click on "Home Mode Leak" and ensure that "Automatically shut off water" is enabled for both slow and major leaks.
  6. Go back and click on "Away Mode Leak" and ensure that "Automatically shut off water" is enabled. 

However, if the Control is not connected to Wi-Fi, it will not report water usage or live flow rates to the Streamlabs app, and you will be unable to open or close the valve from the Streamlabs app. You will still be able to manually open or close the valve by pressing the buttons on top of the Control itself.
