Intellecy has designed and developed a new smart water metre which comes equipped with a leak protection system that can continually check your home’s plumbing for issues. Alerting you instantly when any problem may occur.
The Intellecy Smart Water Meter is capable of monitoring your water supply in real time to help you save water and lower your monthly bills. Watch the video below to learn more about the unique system which is launched via Kickstarter this month to raise the $140,000 the team requires to take their idea into production.
The Intellecy Smart Water Meter with Leak Protection – How it helps? What problems do we solve?
The Intellecy Smart Water Meter with Leak Protection is a smart home product that will help you manage your water and protect your home from leaks. It continually checks your whole home’s plumbing for leaks whether small or a complete pipe break. When a leak is detected, you’ll be notified on your smartphone app, text, email and on the panel.
With the Intellecy Meter you can set water conservation goals and check on your water-saving progress as often and as frequent as you like. Keep an eye on your water in realtime to manage your water use so you can save water and lower your water bill.
How it works? Water flowing in a pipe creates turbulence as the water bangs against the pipe, the pipe elbows and any non-smooth parts of the pipe.
Additional turbulence is created when water is squeezing though a faucet, a fixture or a pipe break.
Our sensor is constantly “listening” for this. By placing the sensor on the main water pipe, it will detect the flow of water for the entire home. Once our system learns what normal water flow is, it can track your water use. In addition, when a new signal is detected or a known signal runs for an abnormally long amount of time, it is identified as a potential leak.
