Moen, a manufacturer of smart water technologies, and Lennar, a national homebuilder, are joining forces to put the Flo by Moen Smart Water Shutoff in Lennar homes nationwide.
According to Moen, the all-in-one water security system will give Lennar homeowners complete control over their home’s water from anywhere and at any time.
“Connected homes are quickly becoming the expectation for many new homebuyers,” says Mark-Hans Richer, chief marketing and innovation officer, Moen.
“We’re raising the bar by using smart home technology to give homeowners across the country complete control over their home’s water, 24/7.”
From monitoring water usage in real time, to setting water conservation goals, the Flo by Moen Smart Water Shutoff gives homeowners all the data they need to understand, control and conserve their home’s water. And with the device’s innovative leak detection technology, homes will now have enhanced protection against unforeseen water events. A recent study with Lexis Nexis showed that one year following installation of the Flo by Moen Smart Water Shutoff, homes saw a 96 percent decrease in paid water leak insurance claims compared to two years prior to installation. Now, Lennar homeowners will benefit from this proven water security solution.
The Flo by Moen Smart Water Shutoff will be offered on newly built Lennar homes, providing Lennar customers with whole-home water security. Flo by Moen connects to the home’s main water line and calculates pressure, flow rate and ambient temperature within the home’s water supply system – delivering data to the homeowner via the Flo by Moen smartphone app. This enables the device to monitor and help detect water leaks and other vulnerabilities in the water supply system. If a leak is detected, it will either alert a homeowner to turn off the water supply through their app, or turn off the water supply automatically, if the homeowner chooses that setting. The app also gives homeowners a better understanding of their water usage, including usage by fixture – in real time – and allows them to set conservation goals.
“Forty percent of homeowners will suffer from some type of water damage,” says Gabriel Halimi, CEO of Flo Technologies.
“Forty percent. By including Flo by Moen in their builds, Lennar is leveraging our proprietary machine learning technology to help protect their customers’ home water supply and allow them to enjoy all the many benefits of a smart water system, including an improved ability to monitor, control and conserve their home’s water at their fingertips.”
