Remote monitoring of fire hydrant activity and condition

An ageing and increasingly fragile water network

Drinking water networks are becoming increasingly decrepit. As pipes regularly exceed their theoretical lifespan, they are subjected to frequent damage that make them even more vulnerable. Even more so when fire hydrants are not used properly. Hydrants require large flows at very high pressure, and that has an impact on the pipes.


Combating wastage, network breakdown and fraud

Fire hydrants are on public roads and are not underground like the rest of the network. Municipalities are responsible for the proper management of fire hydrants and are exposed to the risk of fraud, damage and even accidents in the event of freezing, for example. These hazards can have significant repercussions on the entire drinking water network: water loss, decrease in water quality, weakening of the pipes themselves and even overcharging.


Monitor the activity of your fire hydrants and get information in real time

APILINK, our solution for monitoring your fire hydrants’ activity, detects things that happen to them: opening (planned or unplanned), closing, the hydrant being knocked over, fraud, etc.



Why monitor fire hydrant activity?

Continuous monitoring of your fire network

Incident alerts

Detection of potential hydraulic shock and pipe breakage

Estimate of unbilled water consumption volumes

How does our solution work? 

The APILINK connected sensor is installed on fire hydrants and records the duration and degree of opening of each hydrant to calculate the volumes of water outflow. It also offers a wide range of additional digital services, including prevention of the risks of freezing and incidents on the network as well as on the hydrant itself.


Apilink is easy to deploy and compatible with all major brands of fire hydrant. 


This connected sensor delivers data and services via a web portal, enabling users to better manage their water network. By digitising the network’s vulnerable points, the operator benefits from new ways to improve forward planning of interventions and simplify the management of network assets.
