Saving Water with Phyn

Water is an increasingly scarce and valuable resource. Yet it is being lost and wasted at staggering rates without knowledge or control of homeowners.
Phyn is a new company founded by Belkin and Uponor with the mission of helping people preserve water.
- Phyn mission statement
Phyn Plus is a combination of smart meter and AI that analyzes how water is used in your house. The product is installed in the main water line of the house and continuously measures water pressure and flow. Imagine knowing when you opened the kitchen faucet, took a shower, watered the lawn and whether you have a leak. Phyn provides the information to help you save water.
When you flush a toilet, wash your hands, or water your lawn, the pressure in your plumbing system changes. Phyn measures these microscopic changes in water pressure—240 times a second—to fingerprint the unique pressure profile of each fixture in your home. So when you run a faucet, Phyn knows it’s a faucet. And if that faucet leaks, Phyn lets you know.
Phyn was looking for the product to be the face of their brand. It needed to support brand coherence and awareness by being focal point and talking point all in one. We leveraged the design to reflect Phyn’s mission to “give the world the ability to speak the language of water”.
