NORTH OLMSTED, Ohio, Jan. 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ --Consumers can control nearly everything from their smartphone, including locks, doorbells, cameras, lights—all products that help make them feel safe, offer convenience, and provide peace of mind. But what about their water? Water damage is five times more likely than theft*, and water is one of the most used resources in our homes, making it pivotal for homeowners to simplify the way they manage it.
Safety continues to be one of the primary drivers for adoption of smart home solutions**, and Moen is changing the plumbing industry by giving consumers better control over the water that flows through their home, through enhanced water security, and convenient features and benefits with the Moen portfolio of whole-home smart water products and the new Moen App.
Moen's smart water products look beautiful, integrate seamlessly into the home, respond more intuitively, and empower homeowners to manage water in a way that improves their comfort, security, and conservation efforts—all while enabling them to live the connected lifestyle they desire. While homeowners go about their day, Moen's products are working together in the background, 24/7, to monitor for potential water risks and leaks and can automatically take action to notify the user, shut off water and protect the home.
Smart Water Products Moen is Showcasing at CES Include:

Flo by Moen™ Smart Water Security System:
Flo by Moen is a revolutionary, smart home water security system that features a suite of products to protect a home from water damage and leaks, 24/7. With the Moen App, consumers also get an unprecedented ability to control, conserve and monitor their home's water from anywhere at any time. Products include:
NEW! Flo by Moen Smart Sump Pump Monitor*** — a device that connects to homeowners' current sump pump to help reduce the risk of flooding as a result of a failure by providing continuous monitoring and alerts when potential problems or unusual conditions are detected. The proactive monitoring allows homeowners to address and mitigate the risk of water damage around the clock.
Flo by Moen Smart Water Shutoff — a leak detection and water monitoring device that's installed on the water lines going into the home and can automatically turn off the water to the home if a leak or risk are detected. The Smart Water Shutoff provides automated water security by continually monitoring water pressure, flow rate, and ambient temperature, while running daily Health Tests to check for potential leaks and other abnormalities. If the Shutoff senses a home has a leak or is at risk, it will alert the homeowner so they can take action through the app, or the device can be set to close the water valve automatically and help prevent catastrophic damage.
Flo by Moen Smart Water Detectors — a standalone water sensor that can be placed anywhere in a home to alert homeowners through the Moen App when and where it detects water outside of the pipes to help prevent water damage and loss due to a fixture malfunction or environmental factors.
