Drought Resilience

In order to overcome the challenges of future droughts, there has been a significant increase in water consumption data monitoring, collection, and analysis. Our H2Ouse monitors water flow rates in every single one of its water lines and compares collected data to diverse, customizable water budget goals.

Educational

To make collected data most impactful, Our H2Ouse shares data with its occupants through dynamic, engaging and thought-provoking information feedback devices. Using the influence of such devices, Our H2Ouse molds occupant behavior into more sustainable and conservative formats.
