SIMECHR – Residential Water Monitoring and Control System
During 2014-2015, the city of São Paulo, the biggest metropolis in Brazil, struggled with a very serious water crisis. In this context, SIMECHR - Residential Water Monitoring and Control System was developed. It is an equipment able to monitor in real time the incoming water flow to any house and residential buildings. Access can be made remotely through a mobile application. The tool allows the users to monitor the water level in their tanks and enables them to check undesired air flow in water pipes, as well as leaks, leading towards a more efficient consumption. It also helps the users validate the amount charged in the supplier bill. Therefore, SIMECHR contributes to engage the society in more conscious water habits.
