Smart water management technology
How does Phyn smart water assistant protect your house from water leaks? Most of us have suffered at least once from water leaks in our primary or secondary vacation homes, spending ridiculous amounts on fixing the damages.
This leads to an important question:
Can I remotely monitor and control my home’s water usage and status without being tech-savvy?
The answer is yes.
Phyn uses intelligent water management technology to produce products that detect leaks and shut off their water sources before damaging your home.
It measures microscopic water pressure changes in high definition—240 times a second—recognizing the specific voice of each fixture in your home. So when you open a faucet or run a load of laundry, it will know, and if there are leaks, it will let you know.
It also sends you smart insights on your water usage, so you can adjust your use and be more proactive and sustainable with your water.
It notifies you of all leak types, such as:
- Toilet flapper leaks
- Supply line leaks
- Water left on
- Catastrophic leaks
- Pinhole leaks detected via its Plumbing Check feature
- Drip leaks detected via its Plumbing Check feature
- Unusual usage
What happens when you install Phyn in your home?
Phyn’s technology has already seen the pressure signals of hundreds of millions of showers, toilet flushes, pool fills, and washing machine loads.
Once you install it in your home, it immediately matches these pressure signatures to your fixtures.
Once it learns your specific fixtures, it creates a profile for each one, monitoring the amount of water used and creating your home water use profile.
Afterward, it can give you insights on your water usage specific for each fixture.
It will allow you to teach it about your home’s specific plumbing systems so it won’t shut off the water when you need it.
It will also notify you when it detects a leak in a profile and give you the option to shut it off, or if you are using Phyn Plus, it’ll automatically shut off your primary water source if you were notified and didn’t take action, saving you time and money.
Case studies in Egypt:
Over the last year, i2M Tech has successfully installed the Phyn Plus device at some units in different gated compounds in Cairo and Giza, and the feedback was impressive. Some villa owners have been notified of forgotten irrigation and could turn it off before wasting water resources. Others were notified of their faucet dripping issues. Not to mention how unit owners were remotely monitoring the water consumption by technicians during the furnishing of their units.
