For nearly a decade, the BIGteam has attended the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), one of the biggest and most important trade shows in the consumer tech industry. As a meeting hub for technology companies and media from all over the world, CES offers an unparalleled opportunity to announce new products and get crucial face time with industry reporters and experts. Read on for the BIGclient highlights from this year’s event!
Flo Technologies, an industry leader in smart home water security, announced the new Flo by Moen Smart Water Detector! This intuitive sensor can be placed anywhere in the house and can alert users if, and when, it detects moisture to help prevent water damage and loss. The Smart Water Detector is capable of working in conjunction with, or independently from, the Flo by Moen Smart Water Shutoff, a device that proactively identifies leaks anywhere in a home’s water supply and automatically shuts the water off. The Smart Water Detector is available for preorder now! The Smart Water Detector’s presence at CES stirred up some buzz in outlets like the Associated Press, WIRED, CNET and more.
