Our expertise: Water management
HYDRAO offers smart digital solutions to preserve the environment
by making it easier to save water and manage your water usage.
HYDRAO smart and self-powered devices increase citizens and facility manager’s sensitiveness to resource preservation through real-time information on their water usage.
We offer a range of services:
water usage monitoring, leakage detection, reports on the savings.
We closely work with a professor specialized in behavioural economics: his studies particularly shows the evidence of real-time feedback on water usage.
A first study, developped with the National University of Singapore (NUS), proves up to 15% savings thanks to relevant HYDRAO color-based real-time information.
Extract: "[…] providing real-time feedback has a large effect on water use […]. The effect is stable over time. The technology used is easily scalable to larger groups, and highly cost effective."
A second study is ongoing in the hospitality sector, at the holiday resort Village Nature near Paris (Pierre& Vacances).
Our patented technology is based on energy harvesting and data collection at the same time. Our products are self powered thanks to the hydraulic turbine : it generates an electric current, like a dynamo.
There is no battery inside therefore less maintenance! Information on volume, pressure and flow rate are collected by the same integrated turbine. Only a few micro amperes are required to power up the electronic board, LED lights and connectivity for data transmission.
All our product gather information in real time on water flow, pressure, volume and temperature.
A network of our smart connected devices allow you to gather precious information on instant water usage and recommandations about your network maintenance.
