Hygienic water supplies are made possible, thanks to internet-based building management systems

A home with an intelligent network, where all the sanitary appliances can be controlled by a smartphone or computer, is no longer a fictional idea.  Automatic water management guarantees the most hygienic domestic water supply and provides greater comfort and safety.

Digital technology is an aid to controlling water and managing drinking water efficiently and safely. Innovative system solutions enable functional processes to be carried out according to preset parameters, and they can be monitored so that even the smallest discrepancies can be registered and rectified immediately. Internet-enabled systems are especially convenient because they can be controlled remotely, with a Smartphone for example, from any location.

In public buildings in particular, sanitary facilities are affected by fluctuations in the intensity and duration of use, which can cause contamination and the development of legionella bacteria. Sanitary flushing units help to ensure that the water quality in the building’s installations is protected and maintained. It is possible to control them easily with a web interface on a smartphone, tablet or laptop. In addition, settings for flushing volumes and intervals can be entered conveniently from anywhere by means of an app. Information on the flushing process, such as the time the flush starts, its volume and its temperature, are recorded and the data can be downloaded to a smartphone or tablet. Whether they use it for the whole of their domestic water system or for a single application such as, for example, the WC, owners can save money with the help of internet-enabled flushing systems. This is because building technicians can carry out inspections, diagnostic tests and adjustments remotely from their office. Less travelling around means greater sustainability.

An intelligent water management system not only ensures the most hygienic domestic and drinking water supply but also delivers water that is safe: it prevents leaking systems, overflowing bath tubs and burst pipes by aligning actual water consumption with preset target values.

"Intelligent water management systems enable us first and foremost to ensure the most hygienic domestic water supply", says Wolfgang Burchard, Director of the VDMA’s Association of Valve Manufacturers. Automated buildings management makes for greater sustainability – both economically and ecologically.
