The local TV station NDR is presenting every Monday a new great idea from Northern German start-ups. In July it was the idea of PYDRO to make water networks smarter with the end to end solution of PT1 multi sensor device. The PT1 harvest energy from water flow and power up internal sensors to measure relevant data for an efficient water network management. PT1 sends data 24/7 in real time to any cloud based monitoring system. With this data water utilities can better manage their networks, reduce water losses, better plan their assets and thus reducing costs and save ressources.
