Smart water meters vs leak detectors

Leak detection systems play a vital role in preventing water damage and conserving resources. By promptly identifying leaks, residential users can save money on water bills and avoid expensive repairs. With the evolution of technology, smart water meters and standard leak detectors offer distinct functionalities and features to cater to various needs.

From the technical point of view, smart water meters offer a convenient one-stop solution for overseeing your water usage, spotting leaks, and regulating water flow within your home meanwhile the functionalities of leak detectors are mainly limited to a simple leak notification.

Unlike traditional leak detectors, Addra smart water meters go beyond simply pinpointing leaks by actively working to resolve them.

With smart water meters, users can effortlessly monitor their water usage in real-time and receive notifications for any irregularities, promoting efficient usage and savings.

Additionally, the capability to remotely control water flow through smart water meters with integrated valves that is available with ADDRA provides convenience and oversight over the water consumption, making them a top choice for contemporary households aiming to enhance water efficiency and minimize waste. In contrast, standard leak detectors simply notify users after a leak has already occurred.
