In an effort to help reduce water wastage, the 'FLUID' smart water meter is designed to let users better understand their at home hydro habits.

The 'FLUID' is designed to use ultrasonic technology to easily break down exactly how much water is being consumed. Just click this smart water meter onto a pipe and ultrasonic pulses detect when water is flowing without having to actually penetrate the pipe itself. Furthermore, you can actually teach the meter to recognize the specific vibration that each appliance gives off when it consumes water as well.

All this information can be broken down into easy-to-understand data that will show exactly what appliances are consuming water and how much they use. The companion app can even alert you if it thinks a leak has sprung up somewhere in your home.
