Bangalore, February 4 2017: SmarterHomes, a Bangalore based automation startup has come up with a solution to not only monitor water usage but also in significantly reducing water wastage through their automated IoT product Wateron. This is robust solution that measures water consumption in individual apartments. .... the world’s first 100% automated smart water meter offering accurate metering, leak prevention (detection and control) and long life. It’s the only end-to-end solution providing real time readings to the consumers to help them prevent wastage and save money.
WaterOn is an integrated product which comes with simplified solution approach. The meter is an independent unit sending data to the cloud server. The meter comes in two variations – one with a remote operable valve allowing users to shut off water supply in the event of a leak or planned vacation, and second without valve which can alert the user of a leak but will not be able to shut off water supply.
How does WaterOn work? Measure. Monitor. Control
Measure: WaterOns use positive displacement technology that makes them not only accurate even for very small quantities but also retains accuracy for a very long time as compared to conventional jet type water meters. It can be installed in any orientation horizontal or vertical or even at an angle making them friendly for tough to install locations. In high rise apartment complexes, each water inlet is fixed with a WaterOn smart water meter. The meters connect each other network ensuring real time, loss free transmission of data to the wireless communication hub called Nuclious.
Monitor: The Nuclious enables real time connnectivity of smart meters and sensors with SmarterHomes platform. The comprehensive dashboard accessible from internet and smart phones allows the customers to see their supply and consumption statistics, their averages, lowest and highest consumptions and also compare their usage with neighbours.
Control: In the event of a leakage or an abnormal consumption, the device will alert the user on the phone and user can close it remotely with the help of an app.
WaterOn also incorporates billing that not only presents the bill data but also presents usage trends, forecasts and a 6-month historical view of the consumption.
WaterOn is operational in 700 houses in Bangalore and 2400 water meters are currently being installed.
SmarterHomes has its presence in Bangalore, Hyderabad and in international markets like Finland, Holland and Indonesia. Started by Vivek Shukla and Kasturi Rangan in 2014, SmarterHomes empowers individual users to monitor, control and optimize their water consumption in real time.
