Hydrao Aloé

Smart eco-showers usinng nudges to change users behaviour

Identification

Hydrao Aloé is a showerhead that allows for water and energy savings using nudge technology.

The device acts on two different levels to deliver tangible savings: 1) Mechanically through a flow-restrictor that lowers the flow of a normal eco-shower and 2) behaviorally through the colored-LED sequence that informs users in real-time about their water usage and "nudges" them to stop the shower when the light turns red and so take shorter showers. Hydrao Aloé's behavioral efficiency technology engages users at point-of-use, providing them with real-time relevant and actionable information. No battery is required as the natural water flow drives a turbine to power the LED and data connection.

Smart showers, smart toilets and smart sinks: Should you put plumbing online?

Grenoble ecological showers in a Corrèze campsite

The Domaine du Lac de Feyt campsite is equipped with 38 shower heads that turn red when you consume too much water. The knobs are green from 0 to 10 liters of water. They turn blue up to 20 liters, purple up to 30 liters and red up to 40 liters.

Kerlink and Hydrao deploy an IoT shower solution in more than 30 hostels in the United States

Hostelling International USA, an American non-profit association with more than 30 hostels, will install the solution. It should reduce its water consumption by almost 4 million liters per year. LoRa Hydrao communicating showerheads monitor volume, temperature and water flow in real time. The device uses colored LEDs that change from green to red to educate users about their consumption.

HYDRAO: a new ecological and connected shower head to reduce your water consumption

HYDRAO shower heads use mono-jet or multi-jet technology with three positions (rain, massage and mixed) The maximum flow of showerheads is 6.6 liters per minute compared to 12 liters for standard showerheads. This corresponds to a water saving of 45 to 66%! The shower heads offer a color system to indicate the amount of water used.

Connected objects that can help save water

Hydrao is developing its tools to save water

Hydrao is a smart shower head that uses colored LEDs to warn users if their showers are too long. The project was launched in 2014 using KissKissBankBank and it received its first major order in 2017, with CES in Las Vegas.
