Product Introduction: Water Hero: A Kickstarter-funded water utilization monitoring device
By Water Hero 2014-12-26
A water flow monitoring solution whose components are all easily DIY-installable – entailing only an external attachment over existing utilities.
By detecting the magnetic pulses that a flow meter within a household's municipal water meter produces in response to a set quantity of water, the Water Hero tracks utilization figures in real-time, with comparison to historic usage on a daily and monthly basis to identify unusual occurrences that may indicate a leak. Data is loaded the cloud backend via Wi-Fi connectivity, and remotely accessible from mobile devices.
On identification of irregularities, the end-user is capable of remotely shutting off the water supply via Wi-Fi communications with a small motor attached over the manual water shutoff.
