Benefits of monitoring water safety

WaterQ Project

In today's busy world, the vision of a networked society is one of the main drivers of digital transformation. Individuals, businesses, and the entire society quickly accept all the benefits of communication and shift towards a world inhabited not only by connected people but also by connected objects from people’s surroundings, such as homes, home appliances, and cars. So, if we can communicate with our smart home or even with our car, we should also be able to communicate with the environment we live in.
