LUQEL Water Balancer App

LUQEL Ecosystem

Water as individual as you are.

LUQEL wants to improve the way people drink water all over the world. The main initiative is to create the Water Station: an IoT-device using the one-of-a-kind liquid dosing technology combined with a multi-stage filtration system, which will enable its users to drink clear and unique-tasting water that fits personal needs and wants.

Our client

LUQEL is a team of enthusiasts aiming to revolutionize water-drinking habits worldwide. Created in early 2018, it now has over 70 employees all working together on high-end smart digital devices that purify, enrich and individualize drinking water.


Fight water contamination and save the oceans from pollution by revolutionizing the approach to drinking water and individual plastic use – this is the ultimate goal of our customer. Ambitious, yet feasible. We took up the challenge to help with the implementation of LUQEL’s idea by building a digital ecosystem that brings together all of the LUQEL’s products and services.

Our solution

In order to achieve the project's goals, we followed an agile process based on Scrum. This allowed us to be able to respond to the changing needs of a newly built product. Our experts developed an individual solution – a digital ecosystem based on cloud-backend and MQTT. The components of the system communicate in real-time with the AWS IoT platform.

The Water Balancer app, developed for iOS and Android, supports the users in their daily life and makes the ultimate goal – staying hydrated – a lot more exciting. The app allows users to track their daily water intake, access data about local tap water quality and displays usage data of the water station. Additionally, the app educates on the topic of water and coaches users towards a more sustainable lifestyle.

The website, which was carefully designed by umwerk and partners, helps spread the message. Drinking better can improve the overall quality of life – together with LUQEL we strive to better the lives of many.

  • MQTT communication with IoT device

There are service providers that implement software.

And then there's us. Our field of interest is at least as diverse as our portfolio. Whether it’s User Acceptance Testing of complex system-applications, scalable backends for millions of TV viewers or integrating the hardware of a road roller into a smartphone. We love technology.
