Phoenix Restoration Equipment, a division of Therma-Stor, has partnered with UW-Madison to work on specific enhancements to their DryLINK® ecosystem of connected IoT products. DryLINK is an IoT platform used in the water damage restoration market.
Bluetooth-enabled drying equipment along with the DryLINK app addresses the shortage of skilled labor, which contractors list as their number-one hurdle. Contractors can save three to four hours per job taking psychrometric readings remotely and prioritize onsite visits based on these readings. They can also instantly share a link to the drying report to keep adjusters and other stakeholders apprised of the job’s progress.
“We are very excited to work with cutting-edge researchers at UW-Madison to bring even more value to contractors in our industry,” said Erin Hynum, senior product manager. The UW team will be working on enhancements around Bluetooth data transmission and collection, asset tracking, and data analysis.
DryLINK is an automated job site data collection tool and live drying report for the water mitigation market. The drying report can be shared with stakeholders for up-to-date job site information.
Phoenix is a supplier of innovative equipment and technology solutions for water mitigation professionals. Phoenix launched the first LGR dehumidifier, the Phoenix 200 in 1994 and continues to lead the restoration industry forward with innovations like DryLINK.
