Phyn Plus is a smart water device that allows homeowners and property managers to conserve water and prevent damage from water leaks. Installed on the main water line, Phyn Plus continuously measures pressure and flow. Its AI identifies individual devices by their unique fingerprint of pressure and flow and delineates the use of water in detail, giving homeowners the information they need to make water-saving decisions. By tracking normal water use, Phyn’s AI is able to identify anomalies such as water leaks. The physical unit has an integrated shutoff valve that will interrupt the flow of water and prevent major water damage from happening.
