Smart Water Monitoring and Leak Detection
This presentation will explore how smart home technology can address two major residential water problems: the $9B of annual damage in the US from burst pipes and $8B waste of clean, fresh water from slow, non-damaging leaks. The presentation will start with an overview of both problems to help the audience appreciate the extent of both the damage and waste involved. This will be followed by how Water Hero is deploying and developing smart home technology to address both problems, concluding with questions from the audience.
