Water Alert

Require: IP-Symcon >= 4.2

The module is used to detect unnaturally high water consumption. It reacts to a counter variable and switches an alarm under certain conditions. There are two alarm variables.
A pipe burst alarm, which switches when large quantities flow at once. A leakage alarm, which ticks up in 7 steps when a small amount flows over a longer period of time (e.g. dripping faucet). The interval for both controls can be set via the configuration.

function range

status variables and profiles

The status variables/categories are created automatically. Deleting individual ones can lead to malfunctions.


Name Type Description
Leakage Limit Float Difference value, which is checked in the set "Leakage Interval" and if exceeded, the "Leakage" is increased by 1. If the difference is below or equal to the limit, the alarm level will be reset.
Leakage Integer 7 step display for the status of the alarm level.
Pipe breakage limit Float Limit value, which is checked and may be the trigger for an alarm.
Pipe break Boolean Alarm if the flow is too high.


Name Description
WAA.LeakLevel Profile for leakage - 7 alarm levels with different symbols and color indicators
WAA.ThresholdValue Profile for leakage/pipe breakage threshold value


The threshold values can be set via the WebFront.
It is additionally displayed whether an alarm is present or not.
