Water Watcher Innovation
Did you know that leaving the water tap running whilst brushing your teeth wastes approximately 12 litres of water?
The team of Water Watcher developed a small and inexpensive innovation.The main aim of this innovation is to remind people to turn the tap off and is particularly helpful for forgetful people; for example, children and people that suffer from memory problems.
Features and Functionalities of the Water Watcher
Water Watcher is a user-friendly item that consists of a strap that goes onto the faucet of any tap. It also contains a vibration sensor and is encased in silicone to make it adjustable and waterproof.
It connects via Bluetooth to an alarm which can be hidden from sight.A prototype of this innovation was made using the BBC micro: bit and a small speaker for the alarm. We envisage the final product being small, compact and easy to use: with two settings for baths or sinks.
