Water, Water Everywhere
We’ve seen a lot of automated sprinklers in the past. However, CES 2016 opened up the floodgates for new smart sprinklers, faucets, and: other ways we can save water at home.

Before the show, Nortek announced a slew of water solutions, including the GoControl Smart Irrigation Controller, the GoControl Smart Flow Detector, and the GoControl Smart Flood Detector. There were also interesting irrigation-related announcements by GreenIQ and ETwater.

However, one of our favorite smart water solutions won’t boost your green thumb to astronomical levels. Instead, the newly announced Hydrao will teach you how to save water (and money) indoors. It’s actually a smart showerhead that uses colored LED lights to let you know how much water is being used. It also has built-in Bluetooth and an iOS/Android app, so: you can set levels, tweak colors, and even track regular usage.


So, we know that ARod has mentioned 'smart water' a few times so no surprise that this article includes water...there is a lot more at the link above...
