Water is a limited resource in the world today and as the population grows, it is becoming increasingly important to manage and monitor our water usage to ensure that future generations will have access to clean and safe drinking water. 844 million people worldwide lack access to clean water. Knowing how much water you use is critical in order to responsibly manage your water consumption and save water. By 2050, at least 1 in 4 people will likely live in a country affected by chronic or recurring fresh-water shortages.
A water flow monitoring system is connected to your home’s main water supply and protects the whole house or office. The system works by measuring water flow into your house. By connecting it to the internet, you are able to set limits and get alerts on your smartphone of sudden changes in water consumption like leaks or a forgotten faucet and you can act quickly to resolve the issue before losing thousands of litres of water. This smart, IoT water meter is no doubt the way of the future.
The average household’s leaks can account for nearly 40 000 litres of water wasted every year,and ten percent of homes have leaks that waste 350 litres or more per day. Common types of leaks found in the home are worn toilet flappers, dripping faucets, and other leaking valves. By using FlowSense you can avoid getting those nasty bill shocks resulting from an undetected leak.
Water meters may also be used at water sources or throughout the water system to calculate the flow rate of a part of the system. You are also able to calculate how much water is needed for a particular process in order to conserve water.
What is FlowSense?
FlowSense is a cost-effective, smart, IoT water meter and usage monitoring system. No more unexpected water bills at the end of the month.
If you can measure it, you can manage it.
The user-friendly app will show you daily, weekly, and monthly water usage and alert you when your normal usage limits are reached, allowing you to intervene and saving you thousands. Near real-time monitoring enables you to manage your water usage, even when you aren’t home. Perfect for holiday homes, landlords, and body corporates.
Already have a compatible water meter?
FlowSense has an integrated Reed Switch that can fit onto Elster-Kent, Sensus & Precision meters. It can also be connected to bulk meters however it will have an external Terminated Wire. External Reed Switch Wires can also be used should you need to install the device into a meter that requires a wire. Please ask us about options.
How does it work?
By combining a Sigfox enabled transceiver with a domestic water meter and adding the power of cloud computing, you are now in complete control of your water consumption and usage trends. It provides the connection to a national and global network infrastructure for reliable and secure communications. Powered through a Li-SOCL2 battery, it allows standard autonomy for many years.
You will register on the online web portal to set limits and access your water flow data. Get access to graphs showing your water usage over time and receive alerts right to your smartphone when your water consumption spikes. The transceiver communicates wirelessly to the cloud via the Sigfox network where you can access your data on our user-friendly portal or app.
API integration with your smart home system is available.
The FlowSense smart meter kit will have to be installed by a professional plumber.
This device works on the Sigfox network.
The app will send smart notifications to your phone via our convenient app. Customise your alerts on the app based on your normal daily water consumption.
