This paper considers the application field of testing a prototype in prototyped test environments versus in the actual intended environment. This is done by studying a project with the aim of developing a new low-cost concept to locate water pipe leakages. We wanted to share a snapshot of our system in a realistic development case. A focus on prototyping test environments may have been an efficient way to capture the knowledge necessary to develop a successful solution. We therefore, suggest alternating approach of testing in the intended environment and prototyped test environments.
