This went FP in July 2019 for $159.

Regular price was reduced from $199 to $149 recently, but according to the camels this is the lowest price ever.

See that link for more information and this link for possible rebate ideas.

Hmm good to know. Didn't even know there is a v2 now. Is there a quick comparison anywhere?

Even Better Than The Flume 1
I purchased a Flume 1 about a month ago and it was great. Then I received a recommendation for a Flume 2. Apparently Flume had released a second generation device shortly after I purchased my original.
I contacted Flume and they told me to just send it back and just buy the Flume 2, which I did. This one is just as good as the original, easy to set up and very accurate. But it has the added benefit of being easier to change out the batteries and has an option for a second battery pack which doubles the amount of time between battery changes.
Flume support is also phenomenal. I contacted them to have my original Flume removed from my account and they did it in 5 minutes, all straight from the Flume App.
The only way this product gets any better is if there were an option to download your data just locally without having to have an online account

For what it's worth, this is best used to track your water usage and slow leaks.. like irrigation, running toilet, etc. I had a water fitting go bad, released 300 gallons of water in my kitchen at 5am and Flume did not send me any sort of alert..

For major water leaks, i'm now using Smartthings coupled with a Dome valve.

I wonder why it did not show up when I searched before posting. That was how I got the links in my OP.

Surprised they are still selling v1 as support and new features will all be on v2, their customer service flat out told me to return the v1 and to get the v2 instead even though I had been using v1 for several weeks

It has no way to know you didn't wake up early one morning and decide to start filling a giant aquarium. Low, constant flow of water is usually bad, but a sudden large flow of water might be perfectly normal.
