68% of Renters Want This: Are You Listening?

Water conservation is no longer a luxury or a trendy cause—it's a necessity. According to a recent article published on Multifamily Executive, an astounding 68% of renters express a desire for leak detection and water-saving measures in their homes. This only confirms what we at NOWi Sensors have always known: water management and leak detection are top concerns for both property owners and tenants.

Understanding the Demand

The demand for sustainable living is rapidly increasing, and property managers are feeling the pressure to incorporate energy-efficient systems. Renters today are conscious about their carbon footprint and utility bills, driving them to favor properties with energy-efficient solutions. In a competitive rental market, failing to offer what renters want can translate into higher vacancy rates and lower profitability.

The NOWi Solution: Meeting the Demand Head-On

NOWi Sensors provides property and apartment owners with an all-in-one solution for water monitoring and leak detection. Our suite of battery-powered sensors lasts up to 7 years and can be installed within minutes, requiring no plumbing or Wi-Fi.

Building Monitor

The Building Monitor straps onto utility water meters to give you a holistic view of water usage across the entire building. This device is key in early leak detection, potentially saving you thousands of dollars in repairs and wasted water.

Toilet Monitor

Considering that most leaks in a multifamily apartment building come from toilets, our Toilet Monitor is designed to nip this problem in the bud. It can be installed in the tank of the toilet, enabling it to detect leaks and send alerts, saving both water and money.

Flood Monitor

For the more acute problems like flooding, the Flood Monitor is placed on the floor and will alert you at the first sign of water, helping to prevent costly water damage.

The Impact

Properties utilizing NOWi sensors have reported a reduction in water consumption ranging between 13%-28%. Moreover, water damage is the #1 source of non-weather related damage to buildings. Our sensors serve as an insurance policy against such losses.

Financial Incentives

As the Multifamily Executive article points out, financial incentives are now making it easier than ever for property owners to make energy-efficient upgrades. Local and federal grants can often offset the cost of installing systems like NOWi Sensors, making it a financially smart move in both the short term and long term.


The statistics are clear: renters want energy-efficient homes with leak detection and water-saving measures. NOWi Sensors offer a simple yet highly effective solution to meet this growing demand, increase your property’s appeal, and enhance its long-term value. With the added bonus of financial incentives, there’s never been a better time to invest in NOWi Sensors.
