Smart Showers for a Sustainable Future

Shower Canary, a New Zealand-based company founded in 2021 by Matthew Black, offers a unique product: a smart shower timer that helps users minimize shower durations. This simple yet effective solution significantly saves water, energy, and CO2 emissions. 


Shower Canary faced a key challenge – ensuring their product remained affordable for consumers. A critical aspect of this affordability was factoring in the cost of data connectivity for the smart shower timer. Traditional mobile data plans often involve variable charges, posing a potential barrier for long-term use. 


By utilizing 1NCE's Industrial eUICC-capable SIM cards, powered with 2g, 3g, and 4g connectivity, Shower Canary obtained a fixed-cost data plan for the entire 10-year lifespan of the smart shower timer. This allowed them to factor this cost into the product's manufacturing price, ensuring long-term affordability for consumers with global IoT connectivity.
