The Ark, powered by Ark Labs, is a smart monitoring device packed with a remote shutoff valve that is empowered by artificial intelligence software. The Ark will learn your water usage. For example, we will be able to tell how many times you used your dishwasher or flushed your toilet. Then when there is an anomaly or deviation from the norm based on our cognitive learning of your usage, The Ark will alert the homeowner through our smart phone app. If there is significant jump, then The Ark will go ahead and shut off the water flow while alerting the homeowner.
