The most brilliant way to secure 
your property from leaks.

Red Dot 2020 Winner


Hero Labs believes in solving real-life problems. Our team of product designers, engineers, data scientists and user experience specialists have selected the very best components and technology for Sonic and Sonic’s companion – Signal. Bringing together an advanced IoT platform, hardware and applications to set a new standard in smart technology. It’s what we call truly smart technology.


HD Ultrasonic

Cutting-edge HD Ultrasonic technology detects even the smallest leaks.

Class-leading resolution

Sonic samples the water supply up to 86,000 times a day to intelligently detect problems.

Integrated shut-off

The integrated smart shut-off automatically manages the incoming water supply to stop leaks from getting worse.

AI-powered insights

Sonic monitors the temperature of your pipes and can predict when there’s a risk of freezing.

Class-leading Radio

Innovative HeroLink radio lets Sonic communicate wirelessly over up to 300 meters, or through eight concrete floors.

Battery powered

Sonic runs on lithium AA batteries, for 2-3 years of reliable, uninterruptable operation at a time.

Advanced DSP

AI-powered digital signal processing algorithms can distinguish between normal water use and harmful leaks – and even identify different appliances.

Machine Learning

Sonic draws on a database of millions of learning instances and uses machine learning techniques to get smarter all the time.

Rugged and reliable

Sonic works with most standard plumbing and the compact, rugged form factor fits in even the tightest spaces.



  • Check up on your home from anywhere in the world
  • Get real-time alerts for leaks and unusual water patterns – or nominate friends and family to receive them if you’re away
  • AI-powered insights help you save water – see which appliances use the most, get estimated weekly or monthly consumption and track your useage over time.
  • Customisable behaviours, geofencing, multiple properties and more



Not just a pretty box.

Patent-pending HD Ultrasonic technology enables Sonic to accurately detect low flows of water and identify appliances connected to the plumbing network. Ambient and pipe temperature sensors can alert you to a potential frozen or freezing pipe, helping prevent bursts from occurring in the first place. Thanks to an integrated pressure sensor, Sonic performs a scheduled pressure check on the plumbing system, alerting you to even the smallest possible leak. The user-configurable integrated smart shut-off valve can isolate the incoming water supply in seconds, containing a problem before it can get any worse.


Sonic’s companion – Signal – provides a visual status indicator and an internal sounder to let you know if a leak is detected. Signal also features our class-leading HeroLink wireless technology, allowing Sonic to be installed in locations where there is no WiFi coverage.

Dependable power

Sonic’s smart power pack gives you a range of options. Go completely wireless with two to three years’ operation from lithium AA batteries, or run from the mains with the safety of battery backup if the power goes out. Either way, you can count on Sonic.

The compact, rugged chassis fits in the tightest of spaces, although it’d be a shame to hide him away when he is so good looking.
