HDI TH!NX, a subsidiary of HDI Group and a recognized leader in IIoT-based solutions and risk management, unveils Leak360, a new system designed to detect and prevent leaks of water in buildings.
Recognizing that water leaks pose a significant financial burden, HDI TH!NX aims to provide round-the-clock protection and minimize potential damage through early detection.
Water leaks can arise from a variety of sources, including broken pipes, flooding, and poor flushing systems. Public and commercial buildings, in particular, face higher risks.
The occurrence of temporary vacancies, critical availability requirements, or aging infrastructure requires proactive measures to minimize potential water damage.
Leak360 offers effective protection against major water damage through the use of water, moisture, and cold sensors strategically placed in exposed areas of the structure.
In addition, water meters are continuously monitored to detect potential damage. By automatically detecting abnormal consumption patterns and wet areas, sensors quickly alert designated individuals, enabling early intervention before damage spreads within the building.
Uniquely, HDI TH!NX currently provides the design of a personalized leak protection concept to its customers free of charge. Leak360 is available to HDI Global customers worldwide.
Dr. Barbara Klimaszewski-Blettner, Managing Director Germany of HDI Global, emphasized the importance of damage prevention and mitigation for the company and its customers. In addition, HDI Global rewards the use of Leak360 as part of the insurance solution, such as reduced deductibles.
User-friendly operation and comprehensive coverage are at the core of Leak360’s design. The sensor solution uses a (LoRaWAN) gateway for communication, transmitting data and signals through mobile telephony to the service center.
This eliminates the need for internal customer or company networks. Customers can easily adjust notification settings individually via a PC or smartphone, ensuring timely alerts to appropriate recipients in the event of damage.
Leak360 is compatible with structures of all sizes and a variety of use cases, making it an essential risk prevention tool for both existing buildings and new constructions.
Dr. Verena Brenner, Managing Director of HDI TH!NX, emphasizes the importance of early detection to minimize damage to the building fabric, thereby reducing costly business interruptions due to extensive repair work.
In addition, continuous monitoring helps to conserve water resources by avoiding unnecessary consumption, which contributes to the sustainable management of the resource.
