Protect Your Bottom Line from Water Damage

BuildUp! is a powerful tool to prevent water damage in multi-dwelling residences and mixed-use buildings. It provides a reliable 24/7/365 timely intervention on water leaks both during new
construction projects and permanently once the building is inhabited.

When a leak is detected, our sensor instantaneously sends a notification to your smart phone enabling remote or automatic shutoff of water valves. BuildUp! is both smart and tough: It leverages artificial intelligence (A.I.), AWS cloud, and LoRaWan industrial strength wireless standards to give you water protection in the palm of your hand.
