About

Ôasys is an elegant device that helps us save water in our home.

What others say about ôasys.

 Water has become a scarcity, in some cases to such an extent that droughts have led to radical shifts in both the social and physical landscapes of communities across the globe. Conservation is essential in counteracting the depletion of one of our most life-essential resources, and knowledge is the first step towards change. 

Being mindful of how we spend resources is not always an easy task, but it is essential in making the first steps towards smarter consumption.

As the first step towards change is knowledge, we have invented ôasys, an elegant device whose purpose is to help us visualize, understand, and act on our household water consumption.

With on-going updates and the ability to compare our usage to similar households, the insights provided by ôasys are meant to be easy to understand and easy to act upon.

See how much water we use each week in our own homes, track progression, set challenges for you and your household to reduce your total consumption, and have tangible feedback on your collective achievements.

To put this information into context, ôasys also shows real-time local water reserve levels, and precipitation forecasts.

In addition, ôasys can be our home guardian. It monitors water consumption 24/7, protecting our house by alerting us in the case of a potential leak, or a period in which water is being overused.

Ôasys' curated design includes a ring of Neopixels around the device’s exterior. These subtle lights provide an attractive, ambient glow and color-coded notifications and alerts—a beautiful union between hardware and software.

Installing ôasys in your home couldn’t be easier. We have designed a sensor embedded into a simple battery-powered band that fits snuggly around the exterior of the principal water main of your home. Daily information updates are sent wirelessly from your sensor to your ôasys console. (Installation of the ôasys sensor requires no additional tools or labor.)

A long and exciting journey to make ôasys a reality.

Ôasys was born in the summer of 2014 in Silicon Valley, where a team of entrepreneurs of the Imagine Creativity Center came out with the first proof of concept.

The project continued in Barcelona, Spain, where various prototypes were engineered, and the final product features and design took shape.

Why Kickstarter?

So why are we using crowdfunding to create ôasys? Water conservation is not a one-person cause. This a global initiative that hinges on the creation of a worldwide community dedicated to bringing water scarcity into the forefront of people’s minds. We want to help build this community, and we want you to create this device with us. We love our technology, and we need funding to be able to fully explore its potential, finish development, and initiate production.

This is our opportunity to make direct, positive impacts on the area in which we live simply by altering our daily habits, and to make these changes we all need to become more self-aware. We at ôasys strongly believe in the power of community, and we need your help to secure the global water supply for today, for tomorrow, and for future generations to come.

How we will use the funds.

Most of the money pledged will go to finalise the product development and to production of the first units.

 We plan to deliver the first units in May 16.

Our team, your team.

We are a team of committed entrepreneurs passionate about technology and its usage to solve real-world challenges.

Risks and challenges

We are working hard to enhance the ôasys sensor battery durability from several weeks to several months.

We can warranty all functions of our sensors in Europe and the States, and we are also studying the infrastructures from countries in South America and Asia in order to be able to have our guarantee offered world-wide.
