Water Leak risk management

IoT starter-kit for properties to manage Water Leak risks

IoT is not only about technology itself. It’s about putting new technology and data to work.

To do this can mean a steep learning curve, large initial investments, and extended projects. But it doesn’t have to be. With a pre-packaged and preconfigured IoT starter-kit, you can focus on digitalization and streamlining operations with full ROI control, quickly reaping digitalization benefits.

3 simple steps to manage water leak risks

  1. Identify “hotspots” for water leaks in the building

  2. Monitor the building remotely

  3. Get early alert in case of a water leak

Potential cost-saving: €8,000–€13,500

It is all about knowing

The average per-incident cost for water damage repair is between €8,000 to €13,000 but can be considerably higher. Or, it can be much lower using smart sensors and connectivity.

Today we rely on facility managers or tenants to detect and report a water leak in the building, but most of the time, the leaks occur gradually or when least expected. Sometimes the water-leaks happen in places where no-one regularly checks, so it can take a long time before it is even detected.

A repair is costly and causes problems for tenants, where the landlord must provide alternative housing during the repair. However, a water-leak that is detected early could avoid expensive repair and cumbersome processes. 

By using modern technology, you can stay in control and reduce the risk of costly repairs and make sure you stay top of any problems in an early phase. The best part is that you can keep every building connected in one place, making it easy to monitor and stay in control no matter where you are.

One kit - thousands of possible solutions

Sensative provides IoT (Internet of Things) solutions that will make it easy to monitor the building and detect any water leak in the building.

Discreet Sensative sensors, easily mounted by the facility manager, report a water leak, clogged AC drain pipe, or shredded floor well or drain. The built-in temperature sensor makes it possible to monitor if there is any risk of freezing pipes. Focus on managing the operations and providing excellent tenant experience knowing that you have full control over your buildings

It does not stop there. By using Sensative solutions, it is easy to scale and build your data-driven business. Based on the starter kit, it is easy and affordable to add more buildings and use cases with strong ROI.

The technology

We install the IoT connectivity net with standard protocols such as LoRaWAN, already today supported by thousands of companies, and open up for various digital sensor services connected to the building. 

A cloud-based service listens to alarms from the multi-sensors, that also provides information on temperature to warn about the risk of freezing.
