Moen continues to expand its Flo by Moen Smart Water Security System, giving homeowners more power to control, conserve and monitor the water that flows through their homes.

“Water leaks in the home are one of the leading causes of preventable insurance claims each year – with the average claim for non-weather-related water damage costing nearly $10,000,” said Suzy Street, product manager, digital & IoT, Moen in a prepared statement. “With the Flo by Moen System, we’ve given homeowners the power to better understand their water usage and help prevent water damage, completely transforming how they experience water in their homes.”

The Flo by Moen System is comprised of innovations that combine to provide a whole-home water security and management solution, with the ability to control the system from the corresponding Moen App:

  • Flo by Moen Smart Water Shutoff:
    • Leak detection and water monitoring device that’s installed on the water lines going into the home and can automatically turn off the water to the home if a leak or risk are detected. The Smart Water Shutoff provides automated water security by monitoring water pressure, flow rate, and ambient temperature, while running daily Health Tests to check for leaks and other abnormalities. If the Shutoff senses a home has a leak or is at risk, it will alert the homeowner so they can take action through the app, or the device can be set to close the water valve automatically and help prevent catastrophic damage.
    • If a homeowner has both the Smart Water Shutoff and the U by Moen Smart Faucet – Moen’s connected kitchen faucet featuring app-based, voice-activated technology – the products will be able to work together to prevent a water event.
    • Flo by Moen Smart Water Detector: Standalone sensor that can be placed anywhere in a home to alert users when and where it detects moisture outside of the pipes to help prevent water damage and loss. Users can place the discreet 3.5” sensor where they see a risk, such as the basement, laundry room, attic or other areas in the home that are susceptible to water damage by environmental factors or fixture malfunctions. If the Smart Water Detector senses the presence of water, freezing temperatures or high humidity, it will alert users through a push notification in the Moen App.

“From helping prevent water damage and leaks, to offering insight into water usage and setting conservation goals, the Flo by Moen System gives homeowners peace of mind their home is protected and puts total control of their home’s water at their fingertips,” added Street. “It truly is whole-home water security and management at its best.”
