Kohler and Phyn have officially announced that their suite of whole home water monitoring products now integrates directly with Alarm.com devices, creating a powerful all-inclusive water security system for homeowners through the H2Wise ecosystem. Kohler and Phyn have also partnered with Toll Brothers, the nation’s leading builder of luxury homes, to offer the simple turnkey solution to its single-family residence customers.
With the duo, homeowners can identify areas of excess water use, track leaks in real-time and take meaningful actions to conserve water and save money. By connecting to the Alarm.com platform, users will be able to monitor and manage these connected devices through the Alarm.com app, becoming a regularly monitorable aspect of the home through pre-established security systems on a robust notification network.
“We are very excited to offer Kohler’s new H2Wise solution as an option for our Toll Brothers home buyers across the country. The ability to monitor water use in real-time – down to each individual fixture and appliance in the home – is a real game changer for smart home technology and conservation,” said Felicia Ratka, president of Toll Brothers Smart Home Technologies.
“In addition, the features for automatic shut off, leak detection, and freeze warning for pipes in colder weather markets will provide a lot of value, especially for our buyers who are second homeowners or snowbirds. Having a single source to control all connected devices and the ability for those devices to speak to each other is a huge value add to the overall smart home space.”
Alarm.com Gives Homeowners Greater Insight into the H2Wise Ecosystem
With the integration, Toll Brothers homeowners who are Alarm.com security subscribers will now have access to even more home control features to allow them to easily monitor and manage their water usage and receive real-time leak alerts in their Alarm.com app.
These homeowners can easily integrate their Kohler and Phyn devices with Alarm.com by syncing their respective apps with the Alarm.com app, allowing users to remotely monitor their home through one central platform.
Alarm.com now integrates with the following Kohler H2Wise solutions and Phyn products:
- Kohler H2Wise Powered by Phyn – An easily installable, under-the-sink solution that continuously monitors water pressure and provides real-time alerts.
- Kohler H2Wise+ Powered by Phyn – A professionally installed solution that connects to the main water line to provide 24/7 water monitoring with automatic shutoff capabilities.
- Phyn Plus Smart Water Assistant + Shutoff – A solution that uses high-definition pressure wave analysis to alert homeowners the second a leak is detected, mitigating costly damage through automatic water shutoff, while also informing homeowners about their water use.
- Phyn Smart Water Assistant – An easily installable under the sink fixture that provides immediate leak notifications and provides detailed insights into water usage.
Earlier this month, Phyn also released its new Ultra Low Flow (ULF) identification, which has significantly improved near real-time detection of ULF events all the way down to .01 gallons per minute (GPM). This means earlier detection of more leaks, potentially saving homeowners thousands of dollars down the line.
