Live Oak Systems LLC Launches Crowdfunding Campaign for a Real Time Water Usage Monitoring System

This patent-pending technology delivers real-time water usage volume and cost monitoring to preserve water and save money.


Austin, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/16/2014 -- Water supply – and the lack of it – is of increasing concern all over the world. Despite the recent heavy rains in California leading to massive flooding thanks to the pineapple express out of Hawaii, California is still years away from emerging from its worst drought in many years. So are many areas throughout the USA and other parts of the world. Water delivery costs in municipalities and other areas, where water distribution is measured, are steadily rising. This puts a pinch on household budgets as sticker shock can set in every time a home opens their next water bill.

One viable solution is a relatively low cost water usage measurement system developed by Live Oak Systems LLC which gives homeowners up-to-date information on their water usage so they can get a clear picture of how much money they're spending on water. This will help the budget conscious keep their utility expenses predictable and affordable as they save money on the water they use.

This first of-its-kind system will measure water flow from the water supply pipeline into the home using sensors that are easily installed onto existing water pipes. A control module in the home itself will collect this data providing concise calculations of water consumption and related costs. Designed to use existing wireless networks found in almost every home, the homeowner can check the status of their water usage via the Internet, or any iPhone or Android-powered phone.

This groundbreaking technology has been issued a provisional patent number, US 62/027,684, from the US Patent and Trademark Office.

Crowdfunding is sought to finalize development including completion of the software interface, web functionality and total security via the implementation of a virtual private network. The sensor itself is currently in development as well, with a number of technical barriers to be overcome.
