See Abnormal Water Usage To Save Big Now

Detecting abnormal water consumption at any building is possible with the Alert Labs Building Insights Platform (aka the Dashboard). Multi-family residential buildings, commercial real estate, and college campuses all benefit from this cost-saving technology.

how does abnormal water usage detection work?


The Building Insights Platform (BIP) learns usage patterns for each building in a portfolio and creates a benchmark. It identifies abnormally high usage by comparing water usage with the benchmark. The hour of the day and peak daily usage are part of the analysis

When the BIP detects significant changes in water patterns that indicate a likely problem, it sends a text or email alert. Maintenance teams and property managers can then investigate. The abnormal water usage is also recorded in the historical water timeline.


advanced leak detection and abnormal water usage alerts


Abnormal water usage alerts work with another BIP feature: Advanced leak detection. Together, they track and send alerts for all properties in your portfolio.

The water timeline now displays the expected high water usage trend. The trend will display the expected high for each hour based on the previous 2 weeks of usage data.

  • Burst pipe (could be as a result of freezing, broken irrigation system, etc)
  • Failure in water heaters or boilers spilling water on the floor
  • Broken machinery consuming excessive water
  • Water left on following lead flushing
