Abra Freeze Protection is a function that turns off the water supply if the temperature becomes too low. You can decide the temperature for when this happens (We recommend 10 degrees Celsius). You also have the option to select the WaterSensor+ units to monitor the temperature. This feature needs to be activated in the Abralife app to function. This is done on the Water Leak System page in the app, described more in details below.
NB! Although the water supply is turned off when the temperature is too low, it's important to drain the pipes to prevent further damage. This can be done by opening all faucets and letting the water flow until it is completely drained from the pipes. You can read more about frozen pipe prevention here (norwegian article)
