North Olmsted, Ohio… Moen, a leader in smart water technology and number one consumer faucet brand in North America, and Alarm.com, the leading platform for the intelligently connected property, are proud to announce that the Flo Smart Water Monitor and Shutoff is now compatible with Alarm.com to provide homeowners with even more security.
The integration is taking a connected home to the next level by offering more choices for smart water management, adding to Alarm.com’s broad variety of smart home solutions. Homeowners can have complete control of their smart security devices in one easy-to-access location. The Flo Smart Water Monitor and Shutoff continuously monitors water conditions within the home and can automatically turn off the water before damage occurs – offering users peace of mind that their home is protected from leaks and water damage, 24/7.
“The Flo Smart Water Monitor and Shutoff is a game-changing leak detection and water monitoring device for the home that gives users a world-class solution for whole-home water security. By partnering with Alarm.com, this integration provides consumers with a preventative approach to leak detection, ensuring homeowners’ safety and ease in their day-to-day lives,” says Gabriel Halimi, general manager, consumer connected channel and vice president, smart transformation, Moen.
By connecting the Flo Smart Water Monitor and Shutoff to Alarm.com, users will be able to access key insights about their devices, providing a holistic view of all their smart home security products, from door locks to cameras to leak detection, all within one convenient location.
“Moen was an ideal fit for this collaboration as we expand our best-in-class product partnerships,” says Anne Ferguson, vice president of marketing, Alarm.com. “As the leading platform for the intelligently connected property, we are continually innovating our services and offerings. Together, we are giving homeowners the ability to reduce their safety concerns and be proactive with water leaks and other vulnerabilities that may occur in their home.”
The Flo Smart Water Monitor and Shutoff is a key component of Moen’s Smart Water Network, the industry’s first of its kind whole-home smart water ecosystem which provides consumers with total control over water in the home – all from one smartphone app for a truly seamless experience. With this new collaboration, Flo Smart Water Monitor and Shutoff users will maintain full access to all of the features and functionality of the existing Moen smartphone app, with the additional benefit of receiving information about device connectivity status, updates on valve state changes and the ability to open and close the valve from the Alarm.com App. In the future, users also will be able to receive alerts about potential leaks via the Alarm.com App.
The Flo Smart Water Monitor and Shutoff connects to the home’s main water line and measures pressure and flow rate within the home’s water supply system, as well as ambient temperature – delivering data to the homeowner via the smartphone app, with select functionality now also accessible through the Alarm.com App. This enables the device to monitor and help detect water leaks and other vulnerabilities in the water supply system. If an abnormality is detected, the device will notify the homeowner – who can turn off the water from the Moen or Alarm.com Apps – or the system can be set within Moen’s app to automatically shut off water to help prevent catastrophic damage.
Once a user sets up the Flo Smart Water Monitor and Shutoff and Moen smartphone app, the app will sync with the Alarm.com App, allowing users to check in on their home quickly and easily from one location, whether they’re at home or away.
