Phyn, a joint venture between Belkin International and Uponor, has debuted Phyn Plus, a smart water assistant plus shutoff. The system monitors and measures tiny fluctuations in water pressure to detect and alert owners the moment a leak is identified, mitigate costly damage through automatic shutoff, and diagnose potential problems in plumbing systems before they become an issue. Phyn measures micro changes in pressure—240 times a second—to fingerprint the unique signatures of each fixture and catch plumbing issues ranging from pinhole leaks to faucet drips and frozen pipes. Upon installation, Phyn learns about the owner’s personal water system and continues to get smarter over time.
