Riiot Labs wins an award in Las Vegas for its swimming pool water analyser


The Liege-based start-up Riiot Labs has developed blue by Riiot, a smart swimming pool water analyser. In early January, the company took part in the CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas, the world's largest high-tech show, where it won the “smart home” category of the CES Innovation Award.

The CES (Consumer Electronics Show) was held in Las Vegas from 5 to 8 January 2017. This trade show is dedicated to technological innovation in consumer electronics. Televisions, 3D, audio, tablets, smartphones, connected objects… all the latest innovations are presented at the CES. Over 3,800 exhibitors invent the digital world of the future to the delight of 165,000 visitors and more than 6,500 accredited media.

Riiot Labs presented its first smart concept, blue by Riiot. This is an analyser for swimming pool water which is the size and shape of a Thermos flask and constantly transmits all the data essential to the quality of the water in swimming pools. The information can be viewed directly on a smartphone, using a free app. This innovative product resulted in the Walloon company winning an award in the "Smart home" category during the CES Innovation Award competition organised as part of the trade show.

This category includes various products and software that provide homeowners with sophisticated monitoring and control over the product's functionality and allow a wired or wireless connection to a data network. After the technical innovation award at the Foire de Paris in the "New entrepreneurs" category in April 2016 and its huge success among swimming pool professionals at the Global Piscine trade show in Lyon in November 2016, the team is delighted to add the CES Innovation Award to the list of awards for the Riiot Labs product.

The Belgian start-up was founded in 2015 and is accommodated in the Liege-based incubator, The Faktory. This technology start-up accelerator was created by Pierre L'Hoest, the Belgian entrepreneur famous for his TV slow motion technology (EVS company).
