One of the nation’s top home builders has partnered with a leader in smart water technology to offer a smart water shutoff in new construction. Lennar and Moen’s partnership will place the Flo by Moen Smart Water Shutoff in newly built Lennar homes. The device can monitor water usage in real time, set goals for water conservation, and provide all-around control over water usage. Homeowners will know when there are any water leaks, which showed a 96% decrease in paid water leak insurance claim, according to Residential Tech Today. Homeowners will be able to track their water data through an app for their smartphones.
“At Lennar, we’re constantly focused on improving the future of home ownership, building homes to last that include the lifestyle preferences our customers want – including sustainable and connected features,” said Eric Feder, managing general partner, LENX. “By integrating the Flo by Moen Smart Water Shutoff as a standard offering on our smart homes, we’re bringing incredible value to our customers, helping them to protect their homes from the threat of water damage and leaks, helping them conserve water through leak detection and helping make their homes more sustainable, and enabling them to live the connected lifestyle they desire. Depending on their carrier, they may even be able to receive significant savings on their insurance premiums, thanks to the device’s superior leak detection capabilities.”
The Flo by Moen Smart Water Shutoff will be offered on newly built Lennar homes, providing Lennar customers with whole-home water security. Flo by Moen connects to the home’s main water line and calculates pressure, flow rate and ambient temperature within the home’s water supply system – delivering data to the homeowner via the Flo by Moen smartphone app.
