By attaching to the home’s main water line, Resideo’s Buoy water controller is an easy way to help prevent water damage and allow homeowners to take control of their water usage. Its sensors are always looking out for things such as dripping faucets, running toilets, and silent leaks behind walls.
It can be quickly installed vertically or horizontally, inside or outside the home, with no specialized parts for installation. It can be plugged in or run solely on a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that lasts for about a year on a single charge.
The device connects to the home’s Wi-Fi network and will alert homeowners if there’s an issue with their water through the Buoy app. Depending on the subscription plan, the system can help homeowners shut off the water remotely or shut it off automatically, as well as track full water usage analytics by category so homeowners can save water and money.
The Buoy Whole Home Water Controller can operate in a water pressure ranging from 40-100 PSI and is 12.9” long with a 6” diameter. It weighs 9.19” lbs. and comes with a 2-year limited warranty.
