National Association of Mutual Insurance Companies Recognizes Flo by Moen and Mutual Assurance Society of Virginia with 2020 Award in Innovation
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.

Moen and Flo Technologies Launch New Smart Water Detector to Enhance the Flo by Moen™ Smart Home Water Security System
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.
