Phyn and Uponor, the companies behind Phyn Plus Smart water assistant + shutoff and the Uponor Pro Squad, have announced that its water monitoring and leak detection innovation is now smarter with the introduction of a B2B multi-property dashboard as well as several additional features designed to improve the user experience and make homes safer.
The Phyn Dashboard
The Phyn Dashboard, the first B2B offering from Phyn, is a web-based portal that allows builders, homeowners associations, property management companies, insurance providers, utilities and more to understand water use, mitigate losses from leaks and address water conservation and sustainability mandates across their portfolios. Managers can spot trends and efficiencies as well as mitigate leak damage by shutting off water remotely until a maintenance staff can arrive.
When the temperature drops, the water pressure slowly rises as ice crystals begin to form inside plumbing pipes. Phyn Plus sends alerts related to freeze pressure build-ups anywhere in the home before they lead to pipe bursts. Other leak detectors use a built-in temperature sensor to indicate the water is cold where the device is located, often in a utility closet or basement that may be warmer than an exposed pipe on the other side of the property.
Amazon Alexa Voice Commands
The smart home capabilities of Phyn Plus have been expanded through Amazon Alexa voice commands. Owners can now ask Alexa to provide updates on their water consumption and even turn on and off their water using their voice. Integration with Google Home will also be available.
Water Use Plus
Via an app feature called Water Use Plus, homeowners now receive insights about water consumption by fixture type (showers, sinks, toilets, irrigation, washing machine, and more) throughout their homes.
