SmartFlow is designed to be user-friendly and easy to install, making it accessible to anyone who wants to make a positive impact on the environment and reduce their water bills. With its sleek design and modern interface, SmartFlow fits seamlessly into any home or business.
But that's not all - SmartFlow also has the capability to connect with your local water supplier, enabling you to receive accurate and up-to-date billing information, and allowing your supplier to monitor usage and detect leaks quickly and efficiently.
Join the SmartFlow revolution and take control of your water usage today. Together, we can make a difference for the environment and for our wallets.
Who are we?
Our team is made up of students from the Instituto Superior Técnico, studying Engineering of Energy Resources, as well as students from ISCTE - IUL, studying Data Science.
We believe in the power of technology and innovation to make a positive impact on society.
By using our expertise in Engineering of Energy Resources and Data Science, we have developed Smart Flow, a solution that can help individuals and businesses conserve water and make a meaningful contribution towards a more sustainable future.
Water leaks are a common and costly problem for households and businesses. Even small leaks can result in significant water wastage, which not only impacts the environment but also increases water bills for consumers and cause damage to properties and infrastructure.
Despite the severity of the problem, many water leaks can go undetected for long periods of time, as they may be hidden behind walls or underground. This means that water leaks can often go unnoticed until the damage has already been done.
Traditional water meters are not be able to detect leaks, as they only measure the total amount of water used, rather than detecting when and where the water is being used. This can make it difficult for consumers to identify when and where a leak is occurring, and can make it harder to prevent further damage.
When paired with our app, SmartFlow is a smart watermeter that offers real-time data and alerts on water consumption to detect leaks and excessive usage. This allows consumers to take action promptly, repair any leaks and save money on their bills.
Additionally, the Smart Flow data enables customers to identify usage patterns or trends, make informed decisions, and potentially reduce overall water consumption, contributing to the environment's conservation.
Overall, SmartFlow is an essential tool that helps consumers control water usage, save on expenses in the long run and promote sustainable living.
SmartFlow can be sold directly to customers or through potential partnerships with water supply companies, such as EPAL, throughout the country. In addition, we provide continuous technical support and maintenance to ensure the seamless operation of our system.
Partnering with water supply companies would enable us to reach a wider audience. Our SmartFlow technology would also offer numerous benefits to water suppliers. By providing customers with a real-time monitoring system, water suppliers can reduce water waste and enhance the efficiency of their distribution system.
With the data collected from each device, we will be able to employ machine learning techniques in order to detect anomalies in the supply of water to the house, such as a tap being left slightly open for a whole week. The app will identify regular uses of water, and flag those that are unusual, ultimately sending a notification to the user if an issue is classified as problematic. In addition, SmartFlow will make predictions regarding the household's monthly use of water, encouraging potential efforts to bring it down.
The water meter would be installed at the customer's property and be equipped with sensors that can detect water flow and usage patterns.
SmartFlow would then transmit this data wirelessly to our paired app, where the customer can view their real-time water usage and receive alerts in case of leaks or unusual consumption.
The app would provide customers with detailed reports on their water usage over time, allowing them to identify patterns and trends in their consumption. They could then use this information to make informed decisions about their water usage, such as reducing usage during peak hours or fixing leaks promptly.
