water, so that we all not only protect our homes, but also become better stewards of water, our most precious natural resource.” Phyn Plus is an intelligent water monitor that attaches to the main water line of homes. Through a combination of high-definition pressure sensing and machine learning, Phyn Plus detects leaks and plumbing issues and can automatically shut off the main water supply when needed to prevent costly damage. Phyn Plus will be available for purchase starting late spring for $850 exclusively through the Uponor Pro Squad, a nationwide network of expertly trained plumbers and water specialists. “Uponor is proud of the innovative work that Phyn is doing and we see tremendous potential in the solutions that Phyn is bringing to market,” added Jyri Luomakoski, President and CEO, Uponor Corporation. “Our additional investment represents our commitment to the shared vision for the future of intelligent water systems.” Phyn is a joint venture between Uponor and Belkin International, a global leader in consumer technology, networking, smart home and smart city. Uponor initially invested $15 million in Phyn at the formation of the joint venture, and, with this second round funding, its total investment in Phyn is $25 million. With this investment, Phyn is now equally owned by Belkin International and Uponor. “We are thrilled with Uponor’s continued commitment and additional investment in Phyn. It will help accelerate the already phenomenal things that Phyn is achieving, bringing water resource management to the forefront of the smart home, and a critical solution for creating smart cities” said Chet Pipkin, founder and CEO of Belkin International.
