Automated Water Temperature Compliance, Legionella Risk Management and Net Zero Carbon

The Value Proposition

When taking manual water temperature measurements, our facilities and facilities management clients often encountered difficulties gaining access to properties. They found that one water temperature monitor reading per month was not providing them with enough useful information. Furthermore, manual measurement was reliant on humans and therefore often proved inaccurate.

We offer 24/7 Automated Temperature Measurement in Real Time..

When it comes to measuring water temperatures, as part of a Legionella Risk Schedule, the ‘norm’ has been to rely on humans.

Somebody must visit, and gain access to, each sentinel per location. They must take temperature readings and record these accurately, often on paper, This provides little value as it only shows a one ‘point in time’ view.

Housing associations are also affected by failed attempts to capture readings, not to mention the repeated inconvenience caused to tenants.

 This human act is replaced by IoT technology providing constant safe and accurate readings.

The Problem

When taking manual water temperature measurements, our clients often encountered difficulties gaining access to properties. They found that one reading per month was not providing them with enough useful information. Furthermore, manual measurement was reliant on humans and therefore often proved inaccurate.


Many clients had a duty of care towards customers, some classified as vulnerable, and wanted to avoid additional risks associated with water systems such as: Scalding, Legionella and potential damage from taps being left running. All of our clients were interested in ways to reduce their waste and speed up their journey towards achieving Net Zero Carbon.

The Solution

An IoT based automated remote, real time water temperature monitoring system. 365 days a year 24/7 monitoring of outlets and sentinels, providing a holistic view of what is happening, as well as what has happened historically, across water systems.


Triggered alerts based on user defined parameters such as temperatures within Legionella breeding ranges, temperatures causing Scald risks and water wastage (taps left on/leaks). Reports generated according to the information required by departments within organisations.


A 65% reduction in water wastage combined with up to a 10% reduction in energy bills.

Return On Investment

In 2019, clients recouped the cost of their investment within nine months, on average. We expect the duration of the ROI period to further reduce, based upon the increased focus on net zero. Thousands of litres of water were saved. Thousands of Kilowatt hours of heating water were saved. Thousands of Pounds were saved. Boilers with temperatures set incorrectly were flagged and adjusted, resulting in associated energy bill savings. Taps left on were flagged and switched off within 1 hour and the potential associated property damage avoided. Their current cost for manual measurement was also eliminated.
