H2OIoT monitors hot and cold water consumption continuously. H2OIoT also detects irregular usage or water leaks that can occur, for example, in a building’s pipe network. This is accomplished with wireless sensors using IoT network technologies, and a cloud based IoT platform WebIoT. H2OIoT can be used for several applications, including
• Remote and Automatic Water Meter Readings
Checking and reporting water meter readings manually can be an inefficient and time consuming task for property owners. By replacing traditional meters with smart meters in buildings or apartments, up to date and accurate water consumption information is always easily accessible in WebIoT
• Monitor Individual Water Consumption and Allocate Costs Accordingly
By replacing traditional meters with smart meters, community associations or property owners can monitor each member’s or tenant’s water consumption and allocate costs accordingly in a fair and efficient manner. Furthermore, the members or tenants can view and track their water consumption via their personal mobile devices at any time.
• Detect Water Leaks and Irregular Water Usage at an Early Stage
If a sensor detects an excessive water flow during a short period of time, or a constant low flow over a longer period of time, an alarm is sent. This could mean, for example, that a toilet in a building is running or that a leak has occurred in a building’s water pipe system.
• Water Supply and Wastewater Infrastructure Monitoring
Water utility companies can distribute sensors in their water network infrastructure to monitor, for example, water flow rates and consumption to detect leaks, theft, and inefficient pipe network maintenance. By gaining access to real data about how the network behaves, both short and long term decisions on how to improve the network performance can be taken with confidence.
