Flume monitors water use, detects leaks

Techstination feature for Thursday, November 14, 2019

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.        Using technology to monitor water usage and detect leaks.    A company called Flume is doing just that with a sensor that is placed on a water meter that connects to a wireless bridge…which you then can monitor with an app.   It also works with Amazon’s Alexa.    Installation is easy.  CEO Eric Adler..

“We just developed a sensor that wraps around the existing meter.   So it’s literally just a rubber strap and a sensor that goes on the side of the meter.  From the box arriving at your door to getting it all set up takes about ten to fifteen minutes.  There’s no plumbing required.   We have these all self installed, there’s no need for professional installation.  We ship them all over the country right now.”

The 200 dollar price tag can end up saving you much, much more.   There’s more info at www.flumetech.com.
