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.
The features of this technology are:
A complementary system to existing BMS, therefore lowering capital investment while allowing full ROI for existing BMS.
This technology has several use-cases:
Notable benefits of this technology:
