TORONTO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–A comprehensive water leak prevention system manufactured by Triple+, the cutting-edge developer and marketer of state-of-the-art “Internet of Things” (IoT) solutions for plumbing and heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) applications, has been installed by Greenwood Retirement Communities in its Ontario retirement homes.
“Last winter a window was left open, a pipe froze and then burst causing enormous damage, and we had to shut down a large number of suites,” notes Miri Hadas Koller, President of Greenwood Retirement Communities. “The financial loss was large, and the comfort and wellbeing of our residents was at stake, so we had to find a solution urgently.”
There was one major obstacle.
“We cannot put our residents through the disruption of plumbing work and lengthy renovations,” Ms. Koller stresses. “We needed a solution that takes a pro-active approach and able to cover all our multiple locations.”
Greenwood found the perfect solution in Triple+ smart water leak detection and prevention systems technology.
The Triple+ CLM™ system, which features automatic leak-detection and valve shut-off capability, was deployed where leaks and floods usually occur, including bathrooms, laundries, hair salons, boiler rooms, kitchenettes, and central kitchens. Its wireless, battery-operated leak detection sensors connect to hubs that communicate 24/7 to the Triple+ central monitoring station via the Triple+ cloud. That enables Greenwood’s front-line teams and managers to receive real-time status updates via smartphones or computers in the event of water leaks, as well as monitor temperature levels and whether the main valves are open or shut.
“The best news for Greenwood is that installation and deployment costs were kept low as our Triple+ CLMTM system is wireless and battery-operated,” states Triple+ CEO Michael Isakov. “No expensive cable trenching was required, and installation costs were minimal,” he concludes. “In fact, deployment is completed in mere hours, and ROI is reached almost immediately as additional leak and damage prevention was detected couple of weeks later.”
