This kickstarter is pretty interesting – especially for those living in water-restricted areas like California. Fluid is a smart water meter that helps you to recognize how much water you and your appliances are using and help you reduce those gallons. The plumber-free installation involves fitting the device around your main water pipe, plugging it in, and connecting to your Wi-Fi. Next, you go through an instruction process with the iPhone or Android app.
Fluid hasn’t met its $95,000 goal yet, but all its early-bird units are gone. You can still get a $90 discount by pledging $209. If everything works out for Fluid, you should be able to have one installed by May 2016.
The explanatory video is 4 mins long and goes into detail on how this will work.
