TECHNOLOGY OVERVIEW

This technology offer presents an Internet of Things (IoT) real-time system that monitors the water consumption of toilet facilities to supplement its Building Management Systems (BMS).

At the core of this system are water sensors attached to the mechanical water meter. It can unobtrusively keep track of water-flow volume, pressure and temperature. As connected devices, these sensors are integrated to an IoT smart gateway to enable both local and remote monitoring and analytics capabilities.  

With an analytics engine running in the background, usage patterns can be established, water pressures optimized and contingency alerts like leakages can be addressed before utility costs even become an issue. Therefore, this water-flow monitoring solution provides building owners and management with an intelligent and accurate overview of utility consumption in their facility.

The system is fully customizable and configurable based on user’s requirements. 

TECHNOLOGY FEATURES & SPECIFICATIONS

The features of this technology are:

  • Wifi-connected water sensors
  • IoT gateway with analytics software in remote monitoring devices such as mobile phones or computers.
  • Real-time insights into the consumption level, enabling quick reaction time.
  • Data analytics abilities giving various views into longer-term usage patterns and habits, enabling smarter resource planning.
  • Immediate emergency alerts like leakages and outages.

A complementary system to existing BMS, therefore lowering capital investment while allowing full ROI for existing BMS.

POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS

This technology has several use-cases:

  • Factories and Manufacturing Facilities: Ideal for wastewater management, water-flow and additional IoT sensors may be added to track that the output remains within regulations, or recycled inputs are within specifications.
  • Public Institutions: Complements and reinforces water conservation efforts Private Commercial Facilities- provides surveillance for a long-term redesign of water-distribution throughout a facility for cost effectiveness.

Benefits

Notable benefits of this technology:

  • Cost-effective conversion mechanical water flow system to IoT water flow monitoring system
  • Real-time monitoring of water consumption, leakages, and others.
  • Able to pinpoint and isolate water leaking parts
  • Data visualization and in-depth analytics
