We believe there is a better way.”

Buoy Whole Home Water Controller
Homeowners’ insurance companies pay $9.1 billion in water damage claims annually, and industry studies estimate that 93% of that could be avoided by using a leak detection device with remote shutoff. The Buoy Whole Home Water Controller can help homeowners track and manage their water, and can automatically shut off the water if it detects a leak. Professionally installed on the main water line, the device contains a sophisticated flow sensor and advanced, machine-learning technology. It can detect even small water flow leaks and alert homeowners through the app when there is unusual water activity.
For the first time, the Controller is available through Resideo’s professional channel, offering installers a new revenue stream and business differentiator that positions them as an essential resource to customers for whole-home solutions. The Controller also offers a construction mode feature that helps protect a job site from water damage, without the need for Wi-Fi. Professionals can learn more and purchase through their distributors.
Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) remains one of the biggest business-building opportunities in HVAC, and Resideo’s AirCycle Program helps HVAC professionals reframe the IAQ conversation with homeowners using a custom indoor air quality report. The report is based on data delivered by the AirCycle Pro Monitor, a sophisticated diagnostic device that measures six key IAQ indicators in 30 minutes: carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, particles, humidity, odors and smells, and temperature.
The AirCycle Program helps professionals transform the way they build and nurture their business and relationships with customers. Through training and measurable, meaningful data that simplifies the indoor air quality (IAQ) conversation, technicians are empowered to solve IAQ issues in the home. The program includes a full-day of training for contractors and an AirCycle Pro monitor that generates a report, complete with product recommendations.
