SECOSYS announced today the December delivery of a water management systems targeted for single family and multi-tenant residences. According to Jim Manley, VP of Product Development, the company's WM100 Water Management System provides the first set of integrated, affordable products that give water consumers real-time control of their water use.
Mr. Manley states, "Our products have been under development and test for almost two years. They represent significant market study, user feedback, and cutting edge technologies."
SECOSYS products have been under continued test at various field sites. One such project, dubbed the Water Aware Project, is being conducted at the Garden View Apartment Complex in Bakersfield, California. The project is studying ways in which the SESOSYS products can dramatically reduce water consumption for apartment complex owners, while simultaneously eliminating flood related property damages. At the Water Aware site all water for the 68 unit complex is being managed by their technology, including tenant use, irrigation, and apartment facilities (such as laundry and pool areas). The Water Aware Project includes the deployment of a personal water management system for each tenant, allowing them to understand their use habits and to manage that use based on system prompts and controls.
Garden View complex owner Susan Yeoman stated, "We are so excited by this project! Not only will this lower our water bill, it will give us direct information about water waste across the board. Best of all, it will control and then notify us of a water leak anywhere in the complex. For less than the cost of one major water leak (we've had 6 over the past 20 years) we now have a way to discover the leak before it has a chance to do such major damage to the apartments. The loss of rent, and the maintenance involved in water leaks can be just devastating."
The Water Aware Project launch ceremony was attended by water agency managers as well as Assembly member Jean Fuller, vice chair of the California Water Crisis Committee. Assembly member Fuller called the technology forward thinking and noted that it will improve living for people in the community.
SECOSYS CEO Hank McCarrick says that prior research indicates that landlords can expect a 15-30% decrease in their water bill. In California, where mandatory water restrictions are often paired with stiff price increases for over-consumption, this is especially welcome. Mr. McCarrick also says that SECOSYS will work directly with water agencies to ensure that water allocation mandates are communicated electronically to system users, empowering them to manage their water use activities in a way that complies with required water use reductions.
"A key theme to our products is empowering consumers to conserve," stated Mr. McCarrick. "While water consumers have access to an assortment of water lean appliances and devices, these don't make consumers conservation minded. Being surprised by a water bill at the end of the month is not an effective conservation tool. Consumers can't change their ways without real time information about their actual water use habits. Our system provides this critical information, allowing consumers to use water in ways that best suit their lifestyles while also complying with water use restrictions."
SECOSYS is a privately held company located in Escondido, California. The company focus is on providing monitoring and control technologies that manage water for residential and commercial uses.
