What is Buoy?

Buoy is a smart home water device that attaches to your water line and sends real-time data to an app that categorizes your water use, alerts you to leaks, and gives you the power to shut off water remotely.


It's as easy as 1-2-3

Buoy sends you an alert when it detects a leak. If you're worried about damage, you can use the app to shut off your water remotely, giving you control and peace of mind.

 Buoy app overview screen

See your water in action. 

After a licensed plumber installs your Buoy next to your home’s water shutoff valve, use the Buoy app to connect your Buoy device to your home network. 

Buoy gets to work immediately, flexing its machine-learning muscle to analyze your water data. From the moment you’re connected, you can see your household water use and, in an emergency, shut off your water from a button in the app.
