Introducing the Moen Network: Forever Changing the Way People Experience Water in Their Homes

CONSUMERS NOW HAVE UNPRECEDENTED CONTROL OVER THE WATER IN THEIR HOME THROUGH AN INTEGRATED, SMARTPHONE APP AND VOICE CONTROL CAPABILITIES

Oakville, Ontario . . . You speak to a virtual assistant or tap your smartphone to start your perfect shower. You command your kitchen faucet to fill a pot with a precise amount of water at the exact temperature you want. You’re notified on vacation through an app that a pipe leak at home and you’re able to turn off your home’s water remotely to prevent catastrophic damage. All of these capabilities and more are now possible thanks to the Moen Network of smart water products. 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 – that will revolutionize the way people control and think about water in their homes.


“While smart home technology has expanded across all product categories, smart water is the toughest frontier in this revolution with the most at stake – health, comfort, security, conservation and peace of mind. We’re delivering all of that and more with the Moen Network,” said Mark-Hans Richer, senior vice president, chief marketing and innovation officer, Fortune Brands Global Plumbing Group. “This innovation is the next step in our plan to better people’s experiences with this vital resource throughout the entire home by leaning into technologies that are mainstays in their everyday lives.”


Products like U by Moen™ Smart Faucet in the kitchen, Flo by Moen™ Smart Water Shutoff and
Smart Water Detector to monitor a home’s water supply, and U by Moen™ Smart Shower in the
bathroom can all be controlled seamlessly within the Moen app.


“We’re committed to offering consumers new and innovative technologies that will not only
improve their interactions with water, but also make their lives easier so it’s simpler to be smart
about water usage,” adds Richer. “As the industry leader, it’s our responsibility to ensure our
most precious resource is managed and used efficiently for generations to come.”


U by Moen Smart Faucet:
The U by Moen Smart Faucet is the only voice-activated kitchen faucet on the commercial
market with the ability to dispense amounts of water as small as one tablespoon (15 millilitres)
and as large as 56 litres at a specific temperature. Leveraging the same technology as the
revolutionary U by Moen Smart Shower, this kitchen faucet allows homeowners to distribute
precise amounts of water at exact temperatures and create an unlimited number of personalized
presets to simplify activity at the sink. Consumers can utilize multiple new methods to control
their faucet including voice activation, a hands-free wave sensor, the smartphone app or the
manual handle.


The U by Moen Smart Faucet technology is available on a variety of fixture styles, in a number
of finishes sure to suit any design taste and are compatible with Amazon Alexa and the Google
Assistant platforms.


Flo by Moen Smart Water Shutoff and 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. And now for greater water security, Moen is launching the new
Flo by Moen Smart Water Detector. This 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, via the apps. Homeowners can use
and connect multiple detectors within their home. The Smart Water Detector works in
conjunction with or independently from the Flo by Moen Smart Water Shutoff, giving consumers
the opportunity to achieve smart home water management at any budget.


U by Moen Smart Shower:
U by Moen Smart Shower is a next-generation Wi-Fi/cloud-based digital shower that offers
mobile connectivity and unmatched personalization, providing homeowners countless ways to
create their ideal showering experience, with three choices to control the shower: voice
activation, smartphone app and an in-shower controller. The controller is available in Terra
Beige and Matte Black finishes and compatible with Amazon Alexa, the Google Assistant and
Apple HomeKit platforms.
