If you have a StreamLabs Monitor, there are three types of alerts you can receive: leak alerts, Smart Alerts, and freeze alerts. If you have a StreamLabs Control, you can also receive water pressure, water temperature, and humidity alerts. Each alert type is broken down below:
A leak alert will come as a push notification on your smartphone and will notify you if the Monitor detects a possible leak. These alerts can also be found in the Leak Alerts History section in the StreamLabs App.
Slow Leak: Below are the three customizable flow rates for slow leak alerts and a common household example of each.
- 0.25 gpm: typical ice maker
- 0.5 gpm: typical refrigerator water filter
- 1.0 gpm: typical bathroom sink faucet
There are also multiple time durations you can select as well, ranging from five minutes to one hour. You will receive leak alerts for all flows that meet or exceed your selected parameters.
Major Leak: Major leaks have three customizable flow rates:
- 2.0 gpm: typical low flow shower
- 4.0 gpm: typical bath tub or a top-loading washing machine fill
- 6.0 gpm: typical garden bath tub
You can select from a range of time durations for these leaks, from 2.5 minutes to 30 minutes. All flows that meet or exceed these parameters will set off a Major Leak alert.
Away Mode Leak: If your Monitor is currently set to Away Mode, you will receive leak alerts every time water runs. You can read more about Home vs. Away Mode.
Smart Alerts is an alert setting in the StreamLabs App that allows your device (Monitor or Control) to learn your "normal" water usage patterns over a 7-day period. Once the learning period is over, your device will send you an alert any time your water usage appears to be "abnormal."
Freeze alerts occur when the ambient temperature around the device reaches 40°F or below.
Water Pressure Alerts:
- Too Low: 30 psi
- Low: 40 psi
- High: 70 psi
- Too High: 80 psi
Water Temperature Alerts:
- Too Low: 40°F
- Low: 50°F
- High: 80°F
- Too High: 90°F
- Too High: 60%
