There is no more powerful force in the world than water, it has the power to shape our natural landscape and at times cause utter devastation. This could not be truer when it comes to our homes, a broken pipe or similar can cause thousands of dollars of damage to your property, and the best protection against this type of thing happening is prevention. Phyn is a smart water sensor that can notify you the moment it encounters water.
The philosophy behind the creation of the brand Phyn is quite brilliant, they believe that by developing technology that allows us to listen to and understand our water, they can provide simple tools to empower every one of us to take action to protect our homes, our communities, and our planet and thus the Smart Water Sensor was born.
Aesthetically it looks like a simple hockey puck that you place in your basement, under your sinks, from your water heater, or anywhere else in the house, connect it to your home Wi-Fi network, set it up using the very intuitive Phyn App, and away you go. Using unique high-definition water, humidity and temperature sensors, the device can instantly alert you audibly, visually and through SMS the second it encounters liquid. Parameters can also be set up to detect damaging excess humidity and the potential for freezing. You can also pair the device with additional sensor nodes and cables to extend the device’s reach in hard-to-reach places. But it gets better, you can also pair the device with the Phyn Plus which can detect changes in water pressure within your home’s network of pipes and even shut off the water in the event of a pipe break. Phyn Plus also runs daily Plumbing Checks to ensure you are aware of the smallest issues.
After trying the Smart Water Sensor this past month, many of our team remarked at just how simple setting up the device is, you can be up and running in 10 minutes or less and its claims on instantaneous detection of water are also very accurate. In our non-scientific testing of letting a laundry sink fill and deliberately overflow, the sensor picked up on it instantaneously and began to beep and send notifications to our iPhone which was very reassuring. Perhaps the cherry on this sundae of awesomeness is that Phyn will also support IFTTT, Google Assistant and Alexa by the end of next month.
At just $39.99 it seems crazy to us that everyone does not have one of these in their home, they are not only inexpensive but could save you thousands of dollars in damage and save you from a lot of heartbreak. So, what are you waiting for? Protect your abode and your loved ones with Phyn.
