New Water Loss Detection Technology
With technology evolving every day, our houses are getting smarter. Products like Ring and Nest are common sights in homes, along with Amazon’s Alexa and even smart fridges from Samsung. With all these innovations to our more important and seen appliances, it makes sense that our smaller ones would have upgrades too.
Water is probably, singlehandedly, the most used product in our home. It can also cause the most damage outside of a fire to our homes if a leak or sudden failure of appliances should happen. We’ve written about some things to combat water damage in the past, like sensors placed around the spots in your home that could have the highest risk for a water loss such as a laundry room, heater, or bathroom. Either these sensors would let out an alarm – sort of like a smoke detector – alerting to a water loss or they would be attached to a shut off valve to help stop the flow of water and prevent making a bigger problem. These are great, and very useful but if you don’t have a sensor in a spot that could be vulnerable like under a sink or near a toilet it could still spell disastrous.
Now, there are some cool and innovative companies that are making water detection and conservation in your home is even easier than before. For example, there is a company that installs a water shut off valve that measures the pressure and temperature of the water flowing through the pipe and can tell you even if there’s the smallest leak somewhere. How? Through a Wi-Fi connection in the device that automatically connects to an app to tell you gallon usage, if the water pressure is off, and even if it’s going to get too cold and something is going to burst.
