Why We Do It?
As a Water Engineer implementing Projects in Rural and Urban Kenya, our Founder, Kelvin Gacheru experienced water challenges first hand implementing and managing different water projects. Based in the Capital, Nairobi, Kelvin would have major challenges monitoring projects in different locations and upon travelling long hours to visit the sites, he would often find the projects had broken down and the communities meant to benefit from this projects still had no access to water.
While looking for monitoring solutions to address this, Kelvin found that no local solutions existed and imported solutions were too expensive and would often not work in rural locations. This gave birth to the first Mobi-Water Solution- An SMS-Based Realtime Tank Level Sensor that allowed him to Track Water availability and Usage in the Different sites which ensured they remained functional and benefitted the communities.
Over the years, this simple solution has evolved into an End-To-End Clould-Based Water Monitoring and Management Platform allowing Individual Homes, Businesses, Factories, N.G.O.s and Public Water Utilites to Monitor and Manage their Water.
Mobi-Water’s IoT Cloud Platform consists of a set of tools to connect, process, store, and analyze data from Field installed sensors. The platform consists of scalable, fully-managed cloud services; an integrated software stack complete with Filtering and Predictive Algorithms, Real-Time Analytics to ensure our Clients make Informed Data-Driven Decisions in their Water Management and Water Use.
