How can a smart home device bring you joy?


Water is joy. It isn’t just about survival and hygiene. Being in or near water connects us to our emotions, and bathing, being near the soothing sound of water, and playing in water with your family are all tied to better mental health.

As Chief Evangelist for Water (CEH₂O) at Buoy Labs, I help connect people to their Blue Mind.* Having a Buoy helps remove worry from our lives and add more joy, creativity and relaxation.

How could a smart home device bring joy? When you know how much water you’re using for the necessary things – the showers and dishes and laundry – you don’t have to worry about the times you use a little more to fill your kids’ pool in the backyard.

When you go on vacation, you can keep your garden green and leave your drip irrigation system to run on a timer rather than turn off all the water to your home, hoping to avoid a costly, damaging leak while you’re away.

The buoy app shows you how you are using your water, giving you peace of mind.

That’s where Buoy comes in.

We help you eliminate the 10% of your water that is going down the drain as leaks or waste. With a real-time picture of overall water use, Buoy puts you in control: You’ll see how much water you’re using and where you’re using it so you can manage your water to maximize its benefits.

When you know and manage the water you’re using, there’s plenty for all the things your family loves. You don’t have to choose between being responsible about water and being happy and healthy. Water is a powerfully positive force; Buoy helps you embrace the Blue Mind and connect you to the most important aspects of your life.

Joy flows through Buoy, and, with it peace, love, happiness, and all the emotions that make life worth living.

*Blue Mind is defined as a mildly meditative state characterized by calm peacefulness, unity, and a sense of general happiness and satisfaction with life in the moment.
