When it comes to smart technology, water was once the untapped frontier … but no more. Moen, the leader in water experiences in the home, today announces it has taken a majority ownership stake in Flo Technologies, one of the leading smart water management and leak detection companies in the United States.
Water damage incidents are the leading cause of preventable homeowner insurance claims each year – with the insurance industry spending more than $2 billion on non-weather-related water damage claims last year alone.* Today, the National Association of Mutual Insurance Companies (NAMIC) recognized Flo by Moen™ and Mutual Assurance Society of Virginia (MASOV) with the 2020 Award in Innovation for developing a unique partnership to tackle this all-too-common – and expensive – problem through a creative pilot program with the Flo by Moen Smart Water Shutoff.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends regular handwashing with soap and water as one of the best ways to remove germs, avoid getting sick, and prevent the spread of germs to others. But what happens when you don’t have access to water in your home? For millions of Americans this is an issue they face on a daily basis due to ongoing water shutoffs. If people don’t have access to potable water, they may not be able to nourish themselves or wash their hands, and this could put them, their families and the communities in which they live in peril.
The leading seller of faucets in the United States is turning its strength towards making a large, new commitment to the planet on Earth Day through what it is calling Mission Moen.
You walk into the kitchen to prepare a baby bottle, but your hands are already full holding your little one. With just a few words, your faucet provides the perfect amount and temperature of water – no more balancing act. Later, you’re rushing to get dinner prepared, but with a simple command, your pasta pot is being filled with exactly four quarts of hot water while you chop veggies – no more multitasking blunders. Whatever your daily challenges may be, Moen, the leader in water experiences in the home, can help you conquer them by delivering personalized and intelligent products for the hardest working area of your house. The U by Moen™ Smart Faucet offers convenience, precision and intuitive voice-activation technology to help complete tasks in the kitchen, while also offering a myriad of style options to suit almost any design aesthetic.
Imagine this: you step in the shower and a billowing spray of warm water instantly soaks you from head to toe. Worries of the day dissolve as the water envelops you and the feeling of relaxation takes over. You feel refreshed, revived and ready. After showering, you dry off without an ounce of guilt because you know you just made the most of every drop of water.
Whether you’re fresh off a workout or feeling stressed from work, the best way to wash away the day is with a luxurious shower. Moen, the leader in water experiences in the home, is giving consumers the opportunity to enhance their “me” time with the new Moen® Aromatherapy Handshowers with INLY™ Technology.
Water damage is five times more likely than theft* and a small drip left undetected can cost thousands of dollars in damage. To help homeowners protect themselves from potentially catastrophic leaks and other vulnerabilities, Moen and partner Flo Technologies, the leaders in smart home water security, launched the Flo by Moen Smart Water Detector (Smart Water Detector), a standalone sensor that can be placed anywhere in a house to alert users if, and when, it detects moisture to help prevent water damage and loss. The addition of the sensor to the revolutionary Flo by Moen Smart Water Security System provides homeowners with an unmatched level of security against water damage and loss – whether from a leaky pipe or weather event like a flood.
Did you know more than one trillion gallons of water can be lost each year across the U.S. due to water leaks in homes*? To bring awareness to this issue and help homeowners protect their property from water damage and waste, Moen, the leader in water experiences in the home, has partnered with Flo Technologies, a company whose purpose is to help prevent loss, one drip at a time, to launch the Flo by Moen™ Smart Water Shutoff, a game-changing smart home water security device that enables homeowners to control their home’s water from their smartphones.
You speak to a virtual assistant or tap your smartphone to start your shower and select the perfect water temperature. You command your kitchen faucet to fill a pot with a precise amount of water at the exact temperature you want. You’re notified on vacation through an app that there’s a water leak in one of your home’s pipes, and you’re able to turn off your home’s water remotely to prevent catastrophic damage. You can monitor your daily water usage and make changes, if you like, that improve your water footprint. All of these capabilities and more are now possible thanks to the Moen Network. This new whole-home smart water ecosystem features voice-activated, app-based technology that was first used in the U by Moen Smart Shower. Now it’s available across a full line of smart home products – including kitchen and bath fixtures, as well as a best-in-class home water monitoring security system – that will revolutionize the way people control and think about water in their homes.
Moen, the leader in water experiences in the home, is introducing M-CORE™, a valve system that’s simpler and faster for pros to install, and offers consumers functionality with the style choices they desire to create their ideal shower system. Moen conducted extensive research to create M-CORE, and what drove the design was a passion to make the workday more streamlined for pro installers and to give consumers more freedom in terms of showering functionality and design in their new construction or remodel projects.
Whether you’re updating the powder room or renovating your master suite, replacing the faucet is an easy way to refresh a space and convey your individual style. Colinet™, Moen’s latest collection of premium faucets, fittings and accessories, was designed to provide homeowners with even more ways to create a custom style statement in their bathroom, with vast product offerings in four beautiful finishes and the option of purchasing lavatory faucets with either cross handles or levers.
Combining modern, European styling with geometric flair, the new Moen® RinzaTM bathroom collection offers consumers the opportunity to add stunning contemporary style in the bath.
With the arrival of the new decade, many of the looks from the Roaring 1920s are coming back into style. Now, consumers can incorporate design elements from that dazzling decade into their homes with the new Sinema™ pulldown kitchen faucet from Moen. Epitomizing grandeur, the fixture includes a secondary, alternate handle in contrasting finishes that features an art deco-inspired, etched shell motif, to inject dramatic elegance into any culinary space.
Clean, horizontal lines and slight rounded angles are distinctive design elements in the new Slate™ collection from CFG, a Moen Incorporated brand. Developed exclusively for multi-family properties, the new collection is the ideal choice for properties looking to achieve a contemporary and minimalistic design throughout the unit.
From prep to cleanup, and everything in between, the kitchen faucet is used countless times a day. So, why not make the most of this experience? To help homeowners further enhance their interactions at the sink, Moen is expanding its spring kitchen faucet platforms to the Paterson™, Sinema™, Sleek™ and Weymouth® designs, providing the perfect combination of style and functionality.
