Phyn, a leader in intelligent water solutions, has unveiled the Phyn Smart Water Assistant, a first-of-its kind smart home device that finally makes leak detection and water savings simple, affordable and engaging for homeowners. Setting a new precedent for category excellence, the new Phyn Smart Water Assistant is the first smart water product to provide insights into how much water each and every fixture in a home uses, enabling homeowners to track their water consumption, identify areas of excess water use, and take meaningful action to conserve and save money. With no plumber assistance required, the DIY device is easily installed under a single sink and provides water monitoring for the entire home, alerting homeowners within seconds of a leak being detected.
The average home in the United States wastes 10,000 gallons of water annually just from leaks alone. The Phyn Smart Water Assistant exponentially improves the way homeowners can understand the water they use so that for the first time they can view real-time data on their water usage, track daily and monthly consumption, and compare it to similar households. Unlike any device on the market, Phyn is able to provide granular, fixture-by-fixture details of how much water showers, sinks, washing machines, irrigation systems, and more are using to not only inform, but also empower homeowners to make better choices about their water.
"At Phyn, we're passionate about protecting homes from leak damage and providing tools to enable conservation. The Phyn Smart Water Assistant represents an innovative breakthrough that is designed, packaged, and priced to help homeowners understand, appreciate and control their water better, smarter," said Ryan Kim, CEO of Phyn. "The Smart Water Assistant pairs sophisticated industry leading sensor and AI technology with a consumer friendly design that allows for self installation, making enhanced everyday experiences with water accessible to everyone."
Water damage is now the second largest insurance claim for homeowners, costing billions of dollars in property losses each year and an average of $10,000 per incident for consumers. Phyn's patented pressure-sensing technology measures and analyzes microscopic changes in water pressure — 240 times every second — to learn and categorize each water fixture. The Phyn Smart Water Assistant is equipped with two high definition pressure sensors placed on the hot and cold water lines under a sink. Having two sensors doubles the pressure sensing capabilities of the device and results in a stereoscopic view of a home's plumbing system. Phyn can even see the gradual pressure build-up from ice crystals forming in pipes, and warn homeowners to provide valuable time to ensure that their pipes do not freeze and burst.
