Phyn Plus will notify you in the event of unusual water usage that could potentially be a water leak.Phyn Plus may also notify you of water usage that it does not recognize and ask you to identify the fixture in your home that generated the notification in order to “learn” what is normal water usage in your home.
The Phyn Plus device is always sending information on your water usage to the cloud. The water usage information is analyzed in the cloud by ML machine-learning algorithms to detect signs of unusual water activity. “Unusual” water activity is determined by a combination of factors: time and amount of water usage (in gpm – Gallons per minute) as outlined in the chart below.Unusual water activity may be normal water usage, or it may be an indication of a leak. You will be asked questions about the activity to determine whether the activity is normal or a potential leak. This information will permit the application to learn about your normal water usage. Once the application has learned the unique water usage signature for that fixture, you will no longer receive water usage alerts for that fixture.
