Your Flume water sensor just got smarter about recognizing potentially damaging and costly leaks. We’ve analyzed tens of thousands of data points for residential irrigation cycles and used machine learning to build a model that eliminates the most common source of false-positive leak warnings.

When advanced detection is active, Flume will recognize your regular outdoor watering cycle and avoid triggering notifications, but the leak rules you’ve set will continue to be active – ensuring your home stays protected from water leaks.

You can easily activate Advanced Leak detection from within the Flume app. Click the menu icon in the upper left corner, then go to Settings > Usage Alerts to find your leak rules.

Tap the leak rule to see the details, and you’ll find a new toggle to enable the Advanced Leak detection feature. Save your changes, and leave the magic to us.

This is just one of many exciting new features being developed by data scientists at Flume that will make your device more useful and the information more actionable. As we crunch through water use data from thousands of users throughout the country every day, we’ll continue to add smart features like this to enhance your Flume experience.
