Who is Flowie-O for?

Flowie-O and the AlertAQ™ water intelligence platform are for businesses and organizations that want to use water more efficiently, lower water costs, protect people and buildings from water damage and improve water sustainability.

How to install Flowie-O

Flowie-O straps onto the existing water meter infrastructure at a building: single or compound water meters for commercial pipe diameters. Flowie-O can be installed by anyone in just a few minutes. No tools or WiFi are required.

How does Flowie-O work?

Flowie-O gathers water use data minute-by-minute and uploads it to AlertAQ™ for analysis. When there are problems such as water leaks, abnormal water use or even power outages and high/low temperatures, assigned users receive an alert on their phone via text, email and in-app notification.

The AlertAQ™ water platform

AI-powered water use analysis

Detect leaks that existed before installation.
Receive leak alerts about sudden surges in water use or low-volume continuous leaks.
Set custom leak thresholds, especially useful for unoccupied buildings or construction sites.
Always on. Always working.
Thanks to a standalone, cellular network connection, Flowie-O is more secure and more reliable than leading WiFi connected devices. Plus, it works even during power outages.
Works with existing water meters
The special Flowie-O flex-strap™, as well as the extension cable and pulse cable accessories allow for installation on a wide range of single or compound water meter brands and sizes.
Battery powered
Two D-cell batteries provide years of water flow data with low battery alerts to help you maintain uninterrupted monitoring.
Indoor or outdoor use
Flowie-O is IP67 waterproof rated meaning it be installed in water meter pits, which, let's be honest, get kinda wet.
Eight-second installation
Designed with scalability in mind, Flowie-O can be installed fast giving building teams access to minute-by-minute water use data within an hour.

If we had just examined our water bills, the high water use from the open valve could've gone on for months. But because AlertAQ™ alerted us to the problem right away,  we avoided a huge increase in water costs."

Frequently Asked Questions
How is Flowie-O installed?

Flowie-O can be installed without tools in about 8 seconds on existing commercial water meters, single or compound, indoors or outdoors.

How does Flowie-O work?

Flowie-O detects water flowing through the water meter at a minute-by-minute resolution. Flowie-O then sends this information to the Sensor Relay communication hub which, in turn, sends it to the AlertAQ™ water intelligence platform for analysis. When water use patterns deviate from normal, as determined by proprietary algorithms and user-defined thresholds, alerts are sent to registered users' phones.

Can Flowie-O be installed in commercial buildings?

Yes, Flowie-O is designed for commercial, institutional and industrial buildings and is compatible with most water meters.

Is Flowie-O compatible with my water meter?

Probably, but to make sure, take a picture of the water meter that clearly shows the entire meter including the brand name and the entire dial face. Email the picture to support@alertlabs.com

What is the price?

Please contact our team of water experts to get the latest information about pricing and your buildings’ unique needs.
