WeGoT's IoT App Will Help Your Building Use Water Efficiently



Introduction

VenAqua, an internet-of-things (IoT) water management digital platform part of WeGoT Utility Solutions, captures and shares real-time data on daily water usage patterns.

Product or concept

Developed an IoT based integrated water management solution for residential and commercial properties.

Problem being solved

Incentivises home owners and commercial property owners to save water by tracking water usage.

Process or technology involved

  • Low cost, high precision sensors track the flow, pressure, and quality of water.
  • These sensors track the water sources, process and distribution and consumption of water in the property
  • The granular data from these sensors are then applied to various water-related applications in a property.

Sustainability benefits

  • Significant reduction in water consumption
  • Cost savings on electricity required to pump and treat water due to reduced demand.
  • Lower maintenance costs by more than 30 percent
  • Improved efficiency and management of assets like pumps, treatment plants, etc.

User segments that will benefit

  • Residential Communities
  • Commercial Properties such as Offices, Hotels, Hospitals etc.

Innovations or USPs

  • Accesses the right data sets in the property that measure the different sources of water, usage of the home owners etc.
  • Source management system tracks the quality of water when it enters the property.
  • Using algorithm and based on water usage patterns, only the necessary amount of water is stored in overhead tanks.
  • The system also detects leakages, broken pipes, abnormal consumption in real time, and notifies the user via the app.
