Frequently Asked Questions

Consider it your new water assistant.

The bluebot is a clamp-on ultrasonic flow meter designed to monitor and track your water consumption and detect water leaks in real time from our iOS application.

Yes!

 

One of the most unique features of bluebot is that it’s patented sensor design allows it to accurately and repeatably measure any Copper (Type M and L), PVC, Galvanized and PEX pipe size: 0.75”, 1.0, 1.25”, 1.75”, 2.0”.

 

Since bluebot is compatible with all residential pipe types and sizes, you simply need to make sure you have access to your main water line to confirm compatibility in your property. This is more relevant to multi-family properties such as apartments, condos, etc.

 

To successfully install bluebot, you will want to locate a section of pipe with at least 4.5” of accessible straight pipe, longer is better.

 

The pipe must not have any obstructions like fittings or dirt. To learn more about picking good pipe for bluebot, we recommend this article

The bluebot device utilizes ultrasonic flow measurement, a method widely used for over 30 years.

There is an upstream and a downstream transducer within the device. The sound travels faster with the flow than against, and we measure the time it takes for the sound to travel between the transducers to calculate the current flow. Using our patented ultrasonic technology, bluebot adjusts the angle of the transducers in order to measure and accommodate many pipe sizes.


The data is securely streamed to the cloud and records over 42,000 data points each day. Live and historic data is relayed to the app in just seconds, making bluebot the industry leader in real-time flow data. This richness in data  gives you the highest level of property protection available on the market.

After connecting the device to your home Wi-Fi network and following the in-app guided setup,

Simply clamp bluebot to the outside of your full main water line and scan for flow.

 

There are none!

 

Unlike the competitors, we don’t require any plumbers, electricians, water shutoffs, or surprise subscription fees.

 

At some point in the future, bluebot will introduce additional, optional features with a small additional cost. We will never limit core functionality behind a paywall.

 

As a thank you to our early adopters, everyone who purchases their bluebot before 1/30/21 will be grandfathered in to an exclusive Pro Lifetime Account which will get full access to all features (for life) with no additional fees.

We are currently working on the Android and web versions of the bluebot water app. Our estimated launch date is early 2021.

 

We deliberately focused on refining the iOS app to a level we confidently considered to be feature complete so we could then more efficiently deliver the same richness in data across every platform.
