Moen 2020: Revolutionizing the Way Consumers Connect with Water
SMART TECHNOLOGIES AND INNOVATIVE PARTNERSHIPS CHANGING HOW PEOPLE EXPERIENCE, AND THINK ABOUT, WATER IN THEIR HOMES
Oakville, Ontario . . . We’re at the dawn of a new age in which we have more control over where, when and how we experience water in our homes each day — and one company is leading the way. Moen, a business founded on innovation eighty years ago, is redefining its industry with offerings that not only look beautiful in any home, but respond more intuitively, are more personalized, and enhance every interaction with water.
“Moen is revolutionizing how consumers think about the water in their homes,” said Mark-Hans Richer, senior vice president, chief marketing and innovation officer, Fortune Brands Global Plumbing Group. “This year, we’re leading the industry to new places — all to enhance people’s experiences with water, while enabling them to control and conserve it without sacrifice. Consumers have never had this kind of power before and we’re excited to be the ones giving it to them.”
The Smart Water Home of the Future – Today:
- Meet the Moen Network: This new whole-home smart water ecosystem features voice-activated, app-based technology that was first used in the U by Moen™ Smart Shower. Now it’s available across a full line of smart home products – including kitchen and bath fixtures, as well as a best-in-class home water monitoring security system.
- Experience the U by Moen™ Smart Faucet: This line of smart kitchen faucets provides the extra set of hands everyone needs in the kitchen. Offering useful benefits – like precise measurements, exact temperature and unlimited personalized presets – and voice-activation technology, homeowners can utilize multiple new methods to activate their faucet to simplify everyday tasks at the sink.
- Enhanced Security with Flo by Moen™ Smart Water Detector: The smart home water monitoring security system now features both a Smart Water Shutoff and Smart Water Detector to offer peace of mind and put users in control over their water supply system. Flo by Moen helps homeowners detect and prevent catastrophic leaks as well as monitor water usage, all from the convenience of their smartphone. The shutoff valve connects to the home’s main water supply line to proactively monitor the integrity of the home’s entire water supply system. If an abnormality is sensed or a leak is detected, the device will alert the homeowner via a notification through the corresponding Flo by Moen and Moen smartphone apps. The system can be set to automatically shut off the home’s water to help prevent potentially catastrophic damage. The Flo by Moen Smart Water Detector is a discreet, 3.5” leak sensor can be placed in areas of the home wherever users see a risk, such as the basement or laundry room, for 24/7 protection. If an abnormality in temperature or humidity is sensed or moisture detected, the device will alert the homeowner of the vulnerability, as well as the location. The Smart Water Detector works in conjunction with or independently from the Flo by Moen Smart Water Shutoff, giving consumers the opportunity to achieve water management at any budget.
- Personalize Mornings with U by Moen™ Smart Shower: A next-generation, Wi-Fi/cloud-based digital shower that offers mobile connectivity, unmatched personalization with up to 12 customized presets and the ability to control your shower with the in-shower controller, smartphone app or your voice via Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit and the Google Assistant.
“This is just the beginning,” said Richer. “This year, we’ve expanded our strategic partnerships to bring more consumers innovative solutions that enhance the showering experience, help conserve water, and transform routine tasks into spa-like encounters.”
