Easy to Install

 

the flowie water flow sensor

 

Flowie provides both real-time and ongoing insight into water activities at your properties. Water usage and consumption are reported for customers to view on their phones or an online dashboard, and emergencies like flood, leaks, or unexpected water use are reported immediately to a customer's phone or email. 

 

"Leveraging decades of experience in building hardware, our engineers designed an extremely simple to install and use solution," says George Tsintzouras, President of Alert Labs. "If you can put on a watch or a FitBit, you can install our Water Flow Sensor. There are no tools or WiFi required. Our battery back-ups ensure that the Flowie Water Flow Sensor continues to report water activity even in the event of a power outage." 

 

flowie water flow sensor features:

 

  • Measures and reports water usage
  • Detects leaks and abnormal usage
  • Reports trends and analytics on water use, costs, changes, etc.
  • Reports power outages
  • Reports basement temperature and humidity
  • Connects automatically to the cellular network, so no WiFi or networking is required

 

the floodie flood detector

 

Floodie companion sensor alerts for water floods or leaks in unwanted locations. It also send an 'all-clear' message if water is no longer present. The Flood Detector connects to any of Alert Labs' sensors to send alerts, and an unlimited number of Flood Detectors can be installed at a property with no additional monthly monitoring fee.

monthly monitoring and analytics:

 

"While we're proud of how easy it is to install our hardware, we're even more excited about the value and knowledge that our customers gain through through their data portal and advanced analytics," shares Tsintzouras, "We know that measurement leads to improvements, and the knowledge that our customers gain about resource use leads to conservation - both of money and of our natural resources."

 

water usage monitoring and analytics include:

 

  • 24x7 monitoring for real-time alerts, data analysis, and reporting
  • Insightful data analysis accessible by mobile, web, or in-app
  • Historical trends and comparison (greater usage, improved efficiency, etc.)
  • Cross referencing with other Alert Labs sensors to identify efficiency and cost savings (e.g. comparison of water consumption and water softener operation will identify optimal salt use.)
  • Correlation with third party data e.g. weather patterns to verify efficient operations of equipment

 

Phone and online notifications
