IMPACT15 Innovation of the Year Award Contender, pHin, Catches $2.2 Million in Seed Funding

phin_fbThe Internet Marketing Assocation (IMA) continually spotlights the latest innovations in technology. One of the exciting companies to be featured at IMPACT15 will be ConnectedYard, an innovator in smart technology and the Internet of Things (IoT). pHin, the company’s first product, is reinventing pool and hot tub care by combining a Bluetooth® Smart and WiFi-enabled sensor, a mobile phone app and pre-measured chemicals to take the guesswork out of maintaining chemical balance and water quality.

ConnectedYard recently closed a $2.2-million seed round of funding led by Playground Global. The round was also joined by ConnectedYard’s pre-seed investors, Tandem Capital.

“The U.S. market alone encompasses some 14 million residential pools and hot tubs, representing a significant opportunity for pHin,” said Justin Miller, Co-Founder and CEO of ConnectedYard. “Our goal is to bring intelligence, simplicity and fun to the backyard through the Internet of Things. We are very gratified to have the support of investors who are experts in deploying smart technology.”

pHin continuously monitors pool and hot tub water quality on a 24/7 basis, with automatic alerts sent to a mobile device when chemicals are needed. Also provided under the subscription-based solution are shipments of pre-measured, water-soluble, color-coded chemical pods as well as access to a network of on-demand, qualified pool service technicians. Currently offered for pre-sale, pHin will be available in the first quarter of 2016.
