Want Efficiency? Try A Smart Faucet
Take a look around your home. What has technology impacted over the past few years?
Statistics show that the number of IoT (Internet of Things) connected devices is expected to reach 1.2 billion this year.
You might be using a smart thermostat you can program and check with your mobile device. You might have a virtual personal assistant you can ask questions to from any room in your home. Your faucet? Yep, technology is now moving in that direction too.
One example is Tern Smart Faucet. It’s special adapter and sensors connects with an app and gives you real time data about your water. You can monitor what’s in your water supply, when you should replace filters to help remove contaminants, even learn more about your water patterns to find areas where you could conserve more.
This gives you instant knowledge of where you can start saving and see immediate results. It can remind you to turn the water off when you’re brushing your teeth. Or it can alert you when there’s a small leak in your plumbing, something that might have taken weeks, even months to acknowledge on your own.
Of course, it all starts with understanding your water habits in the first place. When was the last time you replaced the faucets throughout your home?
Today’s faucets offer low-flow options that can help you control how much water you send down the drain every time you turn it on. Installing low-flow throughout your home can help you save hundreds of dollars each year.
