This seems like a newer product and the reviews look pretty promising. Basically, this unit attaches to compatible water meters (not all of them) and then passes this information on to a hub. You can review the information on their app or I believe their web interface. They’ve just recently introduced an API, too…
Here’s the link to review Amazon comments:
Here’s the company’s site:
And here’s the link to their API information:
I don’t have this unit (yet), but I am very interested in it. The only thing I’d love it to have is some sort of interface between ST’s and their API. If I knew more about API’s, I’d try to integrate this myself.
I’m sharing this here in hopes someone might already have this integrated with ST or be interested in trying. Either way, you might find this device useful for leak protection.
Or for a few bucks more you can get another meter that’s already Zwave Plus capable and working with SmartThings:
You can get creative and push your data usage to Google sheets (or another solution) for long term usage or graphing. Fortrezz also has a couple SmartApps to help you detect slow leaks, and a few other alerts. You can also set up a SHM rule (in Classic and maybe the new app) to alert you when water is running when you’re away and shut off values.
I’ve been using this meter since it was released, and I love it. Here’s a snapshot of the DTH I customized for myself. Click on the image to expand it: (FortrezZ does publish their own DTH too)
Phyn looks pretty advanced. I almost returned the Flume sensor but once customer support provided link to API i kept it…since it actually caught a slow leak while we were out. I needed the smartthings link to close the zwave water valve. Phyn seems to have all those things talking to each other.
Didn’t realize how many of these devices have started to come to market. I would be surprised if Phyn didn’t have API…anyway let us know how Phyn works out for you.
If I get it, it’s going to be the “cheaper” one without the valve shutoff (I already have the Leakgopher). The main issue I see is that their “plumbing check” can only be done in conjunction with the water being shut off to the house. Not a big deal, but if you have a separate valve like I do, I don’t see any current integration to have those checks being done (used for pinhole leaks).
