An innovative water booster pump offering intelligent connectivity

Grundfos has launched the SCALA1, an all-in-one booster unit in Malaysia, an innovative water booster pump offering intelligent connectivity that allows control over your home water systems, right from your smartphone as homeowners increasingly look to digitalisation to make their living space easier, more comfortable and more efficient.

With 77.2% of Malaysians currently living in urban areas, and digitalisation becoming a prevalent part of everyday life, urban homeowners are increasingly attracted to smart homes, which are integrated with digital solutions capable of anticipating and meeting their needs. These solutions will also enable them to control their smart home ecosystems remotely from anywhere with an internet connection.

The new SCALA1 offers such easy, seamless connectivity. The latest addition to Grundfos’ SCALA range of fully integrated water booster pumps, SCALA1 is a compact all-in-one, easy-to-install solution that is designed for pressure boosting in domestic and light commercial applications, such as garden irrigation or pressure boosting in one- or two-family houses and apartments.

With busy homeowners in mind, SCALA1 comes with a built-in two-way communication system, allowing users to track their water system anytime when in range. The Bluetooth-enabled solution allows users to monitor, control, and schedule water use from their smartphone with intuitive Grundfos GO REMOTE app, which is available for both iOS and Android operating systems. 

The Grundfos GO REMOTE app alerts the user via a series of alarms that indicate issues such as leakages, dry-run, or when a pump has exceeded its maximum runtime. Users can easily access pump diagnostics, create and email reports on-site from the app. The app also includes a calendar function designed for boosting in homes and gardens.
