The Benefits of a Smart Water Flow Monitoring System

water flow monitoringWater, a natural resource that was once seen as unlimited, is now facing an uncertain future.

In an effort to compensate for the diminishing supply, policy makers around the country have turned to increased rate structures, and, in some cases, have even enacted new policies focused on conservation.

While the resulting monetary effects may seem daunting for commercial and multifamily property managers, there is a silver lining: the increased level of awareness has given rise to smart water flow monitoring systems.

In addition to conserving precious natural resources, a smart water flow monitoring system like WaterSignal offers a number of features that can improve overall efficiency and keep water costs to a minimum.

Here’s a look at some of the benefits provided by a smart water flow monitoring system like WaterSignal:

Easy Installation and Operation

Unlike other smart water flow monitoring systems, WaterSignal is installed non-invasively on a building’s existing water meter.

WaterSignal is also completely self-contained, utilizing Verizon Wireless 4G LTE technology and built-in 7V lithium batteries. This means that there is no need for WiFi connectivity or an alternate power source.

Real Time Data Collection

Similar to how a doctor uses a stethoscope to measure your heart rate, a smart water flow monitoring system like WaterSignal is capable of measuring water flow in real time by sensing the pulse of the water’s movement through the meter.

Remote Monitoring

Keep tabs on your water usage anytime, anywhere. With a smart water flow monitoring system like WaterSignal, you can easily access your property’s real time water data via computer or smartphone.

Data Storage and Reporting

With the WaterSignal dashboard, you have easy access to your property’s hourly, daily, and monthly water usage data, as well as historical data. Water data is broken down into metrics like average gallons per day, estimated cost per year, and estimated cost per square foot or unit per year. Having this kind of information can assist with facility benchmarking efforts, as well as illustrate the efficiency of water use best practices.

Leak Alerts

In addition to providing you with an overview of your property’s water consumption, smart water flow monitoring systems will notify you of leaks the moment they occur. That means you will never be surprised by outrageous water bills, and when there is a critical issue, you can remedy the situation in a timely manner to save money and water.
