Detecting abnormal water consumption at any building is possible with the Alert Labs Building Insights Platform (aka the Dashboard). Multi-family residential buildings, commercial real estate, and college campuses all benefit from this cost-saving technology.
The Building Insights Platform (BIP) learns usage patterns for each building in a portfolio and creates a benchmark. It identifies abnormally high usage by comparing water usage with the benchmark. The hour of the day and peak daily usage are part of the analysis
The water timeline highlights sudden spike in water usage at multi residential residential building
When the BIP detects significant changes in water patterns that indicate a likely problem, it sends a text or email alert. Maintenance teams and property managers can then investigate. The abnormal water usage is also recorded in the historical water timeline.
Abnormal water usage alerts work with another BIP feature: Advanced leak detection. Together, they track and send alerts for all properties in your portfolio.
The water timeline now displays the expected high water usage trend. The trend will display the expected high for each hour based on the previous 2 weeks of usage data.
Trends help identify unusual water usage that can cause high bills
The Alert Labs Building Insights Platform has a new event called "High Use". It will send alerts in the same way via SMS and email. The total volume of abnormal water use is now displayed below the Water Usage timeline in yellow.
Alert Labs has worked with: maintenance teams, property managers, facility managers, sustainability directors and more. We've gathered a lot of data on the most common causes of abnormal water usage. Here is a quick summary:
