Product Details

Save yourself thousands of dollars in water damage by using the Guardian Leak Prevention System. Whether you're worried about a broken washing machine, an overflowing sump pump or a leaking water heater, Guardian has your back. Install the Guardian Valve Controller over your existing metal quarter turn ball valve (from -1) in minutes without any tools or pipe cutting and place the Guardian Leak Detector near any fixture that might leak. The moment the Leak Detector senses water, extreme cold or an earthquake, it will automatically shut off your water main to prevent further damage and you will receive a notification on your phone via the Guardian app. The Valve Controller has an optional battery backup and works without the internet, so it will protect your home even without electricity or internet. The wireless Leak Detector can be placed up to a 1000 ft. away from the Valve Controller, to cover even the largest homes and their batteries last for up to 15-years. Over a 100 additional Leak Detectors can be added to protect properties of any size. The Valve Controller will test your valve every week to make sure it is working properly during an emergency and will alert you if anything goes wrong. The system includes a Valve Controller, a Leak Detector and 2 Remote Sensors that plug into Leak Detectors to extend it to hard to reach areas. Use the free iOS and Android app to configure your system and monitor or control it from anywhere, with no monthly fees or other equipment.
  • Install in minutes and never worry about water damage again, Guardian will automatically close your water main when the leak detector senses leaks, freezing temperatures, or earthquakes
  • Valve controller easily installs over existing quarter-turn metal ball valve from - 1 without any tools, for indoor use only
  • Leak detector can be placed up to a thousand feet away (line of sight) from the valve controller, and they include a 15-year battery
  • Leak detector senses water using 5 different points of detection to provide installation flexibility, use to monitor toilets, basement doors, sump pumps, water heaters, appliances, sinks, drains, and more for leaks and floods
  • Use the iOS and Android app, with no monthly service fees, to monitor and control your system from anywhere in the world

Q:what is the lowest flow rate this device can detect?
by|Jan 3, 2022
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  It doesn't work by detecting flow, it works by detecting continuity, even one drop on a sensor. There's a sensor wired to the controller and the remote detector has a "water catcher" with two contacts and also a couple of contacts on the floor below.

    Answer This Question

    A:  Yes, it can be turned on remotely, but you would want to check and see what trigerd the shut off first. Fix any leaks or issues first before turning it on again.

    So good things but beware...
    Some things are ok. But 1 is NOT how it decides to stop rotating the valve. It relies on the handle's stop tab to know when to quit & does so by monitoring the motor's current draw seeking a spike to mean the tab has stopped. It bent/broke the tabs on 2 identical valves & this creates a "false closed" state. The controller "thinks" it is closed when it really is mostly open. The app now offers a "torque calibration" step. But at the lowest level, breaks occur. Do you want this on your plumbing?

      Possible Solution if you can't get it to work. This product works great once you get it to work, but I initially had the same frustrating issues that many of the other reviewers commented on but was able to get it to work after a few tries. Some of the issues I encountered when trying to setup were, 1) not recognizing my WIFI, 2) After calibration it wouldn't go to the next step to allow me to add the leak detectors to the app, 3) Just overall frustrating initial setup with mobile app and poor instruction guide. Both could use a lot of improvement. So both of the main issues I had were resolved by powering down the device (including removing battery backup if you have it installed) and then powering it back up and restarting the process. After I got it to recognize my wifi the biggest frustration I had was the mobile app wouldn't go to the next step of allowing me to add the leak detectors, but after giving up the first night, the next morning I powered down the device and restarted it and then restarted the app and it then went to the next step allowing me to add the leak detectors/sensors. I use an android device. Once I got to the point where it would allow me to add the leak detectors/sensors it was smooth sailing and I got it all setup and it now works great. Will likely buy more sensors for my upstairs bathroom. Also, as you can see from my photo, I installed mine upside down since I didn't have enough room above the copper water line and it works great.

        I received the Water Valve Shut off with Leak Detectors for review. This product was shipped to my home in a well packaged box and arrived in an undamaged condition. I really like the peace of mind that this product provides me when i am on vacation or away from my home. This product was so easy to install on the water line with no cutting of pipes.The instructions provided were easy to follow. You just clamp in place over your ball water valve and plug everything in and your ready to go.I also like the optional battery backup in case of power loss. Well thought out product.

        Guardian Valve Controller My gadget of the week. What a clever and simple to install system that brings great peace of mind. The system consists of a manual valve shut off actuator that is sensor activated and then sends a message to your phone or tablet. But that’s the short description this system checks off all the boxes in leak detection products. I can’t say enough about their tier two customer service personnel. My system would not reach the actuator correctly which rendered the system inoperable but after a few minutes on the phone with this cheerful and informative operator he suggested I put a small washer behind my valve handle which allowed proper contact with the actuator. Problem solved. Setting up the sensors was a breeze and everything thing works the way it’s designed to. Had a problem with their cloud control sending alerts to my phone but my customer service tech took care of that on his end. Great product coupled with great service.

        No Plumber Needed for this Leak Prevention Kit. This kit comes in a neatly packed box with a suitcase handle. The kit contains the following: • Guardian Valve Controller • A/C Power transformer and cords • Water Detectors (3) • Remote Sensor Probes (2) • Set-Up Guide I had been looking for an automatic shutoff valve for some time and this one is the best that I have been able to find at such a price. The listed $399.00 USD for this kit may seem a bit steep, but if you factor in at least $200 USD for a plumber to install, then it is very reasonable. It is definitely a DYI kit. The Controller is ready to install right out of the box. Fit it to your required ball type valve, tighten the clamps, plug in the power supply, then download the Guardian App (free) and it will guide you through the installation and calibration. Both were very easy. You will need an iOS or Android Smartphone with Bluetooth and internet access. You also need WiFi with internet access (for remote notifications and control only). The system works as advertised without WiFi. The set up guide in the box is very simple but lacks narrative for understanding the events of the installation app and the various steps. You need to go the GetGuardian.com website for more extensive help. I did call the support number and got a live person quickly and they helped me through the installation process quickly. I had a bit of difficulty connecting to my network as it has 2-channels 2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz. The app works only with the 2.4 Ghz. Once connected the intuitive app made the calibration quick and easy and then adding your sensors is easy. For my testing, I placed one sensor in my bathroom then added a few drops of water to the cupped device and the main water valve shut off quite quickly.

        A slug trail of a company
        After many hours of my effort, when it paired, it was great. The software is terrible, app is worse. You are never sure about the valve position and the premature software updates essentially reset everything. But somehow their leadership is even worse. Was promised a refund with proof of receipt and once I agreed publicly, JDS reneged his offer and banned me from the user page so no one could see. I have screenshots of it all. This is the epitome of a shady company, folks-run.

          Guardian Did Not Hold Up Overtime
          I gave a glowing 5 star review soon after installing our Guardian leak detection system in our winter home 3 years ago. It has been disappointing ever since. Bottom line: great idea, lousy software and poor customer service. It does not work!

            Well designed, really works, support great
            Over four years, our Guardian system grown to over 16 sensors. Twice it has immediately stopped leaks including in the middle of the night. Guardian, of many IoT products I use, has been the best at updating and optimizing the software.

              Networking problems
              Mechanically this is a sound device. However the networking and app functions are erratic at best. They are just poorly designed if my experience is any indication. I returned the unit to Home Depot.

              No Longer Works!
              I've had my system for 2 years now and just recently they forced me into their new app, which made me lose everything I had installed on the previous app. With the new app it doesn't recognize my valve controller anymore and there is also no customer service to help!
