The key features of the Phyn Plus Smart Water Assistant + Shutoff are as follows –
Automatic and Remote Water Shutoff: After Phyn learns about a home’s water use, it can automatically turn off the water in the event of a catastrophic leak to mitigate damage and loss. Homeowners can also turn off their water via the Phyn app, from anywhere.
Leak monitoring: Phyn constantly monitors a home for leaks and potentially harmful changes in pressure. As soon as an issue is detected, Phyn sends a mobile notification.
Water Use Monitoring: Homeowners can track their water use and see how their consumption compares to others. Phyn provides water usage for each fixture type (showers, sinks, toilets, etc) in the Phyn app.
Plumbing Checks: Phyn automatically runs daily diagnostic checks to find tiny leaks and other small issues before they become bigger problems.
Smart Home Integrations: Phyn works seamlessly with leading home virtual assistants. And with IFTTT users can have Phyn trigger actions with other smart home devices.
