SARASOTA, Fla., March 29, 2023 – AMS Billing Services by ResidentIQ, a leader in utility billing for property managers, today announced a first of its kind strategic partnership with Kairos Water, Inc. This partnership combines two industry-leading products for early detection of residential and commercial water leaks and protects residents and property managers alike against unforeseen utility expenses or property damage.
The alliance enhances AMS’s Smarter Utility Billing™ offering by expanding its sub-metering to include the Kairos Enterprise Grade Sub-Metering and Sensor solutions. Kairos’ patented technology computes critical data to prevent billions in water damage caused by leaks and potentially billions of gallons in lost water. When paired, AMS and Kairos deliver a proven way to offer significant environmental benefits by reducing water-loss and protecting local communities’ natural resources. This new offering helps organizations meet ESG targets while providing highly desired environmentally sustainable solutions.
“With the reputation for a client-centered approach to innovation, AMS is proud to help our property managers create communities that are safe and efficient and keep residents happy,” said Chris Jeffries, general manager of AMS. “The progressive nature of both AMS and Kairos continues to signal our deep commitment to residential and commercial properties.”
“We are thrilled to partner with AMS because seconds matter when water leaks happen in someone’s home,” added Davin Gastwirth, Kairos Chief Revenue Officer. “We’re committed to delivering on the AMS mission to put property managers and operators in control with a best-fit utility billing solution that provides instant data while saving time and money.”
Kairos is a member of the LoRaWAN alliance and has AWWA certification. With the world’s first battery-powered smart sub-metering system, Kairos technology detects granular leaks and comes equipped with an onboard shut-off valve. Combined with intelligent sensors that detect leaks from just a drop of water at the source in real time and a communications protocol that does not rely on Wi-Fi or a cellular connection, the technology allows owners to stop water damage before it happens.
