CES 2020: FloWater to demo IoT water refill stations with mobile app

Monitor your water intake and environmental impact in a single app.

In a bid to cut plastic waste, Silicon Valley’s FloWater has introduced a “smarter” Internet of Things-connected water refilling station that works hand in hand with a mobile app.

FloWater will showcase this technology at the upcoming CES 2020 from January 7 to 10 in Las Vegas. This year’s Consumer Electronics Show is expected to feature a lineup of companies offering their latest sustainability solutions.

FloWater’s cloud-connected water refill station works with a mobile app powered by Microsoft’s Azure Sphere to let app users find the closest FloWater Refill Station to them. The app also encourages users to monitor their water intake as it offers hydration tracking and hydration reminders. App users will also be able to find out the amount of plastic water bottles they have saved through FloWater.

The company said it has saved over 170 million plastic water bottles from entering the environment since its launch in 2013. FloWater is aiming to reach over one billion by 2022.

Aside from Microsoft, FloWater has also teamed up with Chinese consumer electronics company Sichuan Changhong Electric to create and produce the Microcontroller Unit that will be fitted into FloWater’s water refill stations in order to get rid of the contaminants that can be found in tap water.

“We are honored to team up with Microsoft and Changhong at CES in our development of this entirely new, cloud-based drinking water platform for consumers and enterprise. Soon, on a massive scale, we will satisfy the mega-consumer trend away from plastic waste by making it easier than ever before to access great-tasting, safer and plastic-free drinking water wherever people work, rest and play,” FloWater’s CEO and Co-Founder Rich Razgaitis said in a statement.

FloWater’s water solution is ideal for businesses, fitness gyms, hotels, retail spaces, co-working areas and even schools.

The company said it has already partnered with the likes of Hyatt, Google, Red Bull, PlayStation, Specialized Bikes, Alaska Airlines, Urban Remedy, the Oakland Unified School District and at the Oakland Airport to install water refilling stations by FloWater at their bases.

During the CES 2020, attendees can witness how the FloWater Refill Station works at Changhong’s booth, #11439 in the Las Vegas Convention Center.

The CES 2020 is coming up in a few days from now, so make sure to catch the latest updates on the biggest consumer electronics trade show at I4U News’ dedicated CES 2020 News Hub.
