Ravid created an artificial intelligence-driven water meter called WINT. The unit integrates into existing water systems, where it can detect normal water flow, detect when things go wrong, and shut down perishable parts before any damage occurs, the main in Warton Waterance According to Yaron Dyckian, Product and Strategy Officer, a. Startup based in Tel Aviv.
WINT communicates with the cloud over a cellular network to deliver real-time analytics and alerts through its app.
Launched in 2012, the company’s technology was originally designed for homes, but has since started targeting companies that are looking to not only prevent damage, but also waste less water Is doing.
Large cost of water damage
“It’s quite amazing that water damage can happen in a building,” he tells CNN Business. “A pipe breaks on the 20th floor, the water falls down and nothing is really destroyed when it wakes up. We have customers who have lost millions of dollars in such an event.”
“We have had millions of pounds of damage in the end of construction leaking pipes, causing millions of pounds of damage,” says Paul Connolly, Mess’s technical director.
Beyond the financial costs, Connolly says damage to reputation and rising insurance premiums forced the company to find a solution. Today, WINT has been incorporated into each new mess construction site, which Connolly says has helped their bottom line and their sustainability goals.
According to Deakian, WINT typically saves 20 to 25% in water consumption.
With the supply of water globally, cutting consumption and wastage is more important than ever. Even a small or slow leak can waste a lot of water; A 3-millimeter crack in a pipe can waste about 946 liters (250 gallons) of water per day according to American Water Resources.
“Water scarcity here is (and is) a major business problem that is causing massive damage – and a solution that manages to solve both,” he says. “This is exciting for me.”
