We have seen an evolution in gadgets for the home in recent years, and increasing amounts of digital integration are ongoing. This has led to the rise of smart devices that can be controlled via an app on a variety of WiFi equipped gadgets, such as smartphones, tablets, and laptops. EcoWater HydroLink Plus® can interact with your water systems and can remotely monitor your water usage.  Let’s take a look at three key ways that you could benefit from a smart home water system. shutterstock_165369317_LadyWithIpad_Wifi_Bluehirt

1. The WiFi Connection: 

This is the key part of the smart water system, the portal that you will use to access the system in your home from anywhere.  The system is a two way remote systems installed throughout the home.  The Wi-Fi connected systems allows homeowners to monitor their water treatment devices and receive email or text alerts or you can simply log on to a secure online user portal. Then you can take action remotely or arrange for any professional assistance that you may need.  

2. The Information Provided: 

EcoWater HydroLink Plus® system features are now available on latest line of home water refiner and water softener products.  Some of the features and alerts include a built-in camera that monitors the salt level, monitoring excessive amount of water going to your drain, excessive conditioned water usage, flow monitoring, starting regeneration and backwash cycle remotely and much more.  

3. The Convenience: 

Since water treatment systems are often installed out-of-sight in garages, basements, crawl spaces and utility closets, this remote connectivity will prevent issues that can lead to contaminated water or pricey repairs.  It should also be noted that this should be of particular interest to those people that have a vacation home or rental property. The monitoring of water treatment devices can help extend the life of the appliances and you can keep tabs on the conditions from far away.
