The water stop valve is available in black and white. The device is compatible with pipes for supplying cold and hot water. To shut off the water, an electric drive is used, which is protected from overheating and can operate at temperatures up to 60 °C at the installation site. The built-in tamper alarm reports an attempt to tear the case off the mounting platform. The WaterStop faucet works with the Jeweller wireless communication protocol, which allows communication with the security system control panel at a distance of 1100 m in the absence of obstacles. Management and configuration take place remotely using Ajax applications. Jeweller radio technology provides two-way communication between the alarm central and the water shut-off valve and protects the device from forgery with block encryption with a floating key. Also, notifications to the application are sent instantly. The applications for PC and smartphones also display the current status of the tap to shut off the water: open/closed, the status of the battery charge, external power supply, and communication with the control panel
The radio signal strength is automatically adjusted to reduce power consumption and radio interference.
RF hopping is used to prevent radio interference and jamming. Loss of communication is detected within 36 seconds, this time depending on the settings of the communication technology. The valve is equipped with an input for an external power supply of 9 V⎓, the Bonomi Industries valve is included. And it works with a temperature range from +5°С to +120°С. With the help of the valve, the water is blocked in 5 seconds. This value may increase due to contamination of the shut-off valve. To manually shut off the water supply in emergency situations, there is a lever on the platform. Water supply control does not require tools. For manual control, there is a button on the body of the electric drive, when pressed, the shut-off valve opens/closes. LED indication using the color of the LED backlight of the Ajax logo indicates the state of the drive.
No additional cable routing is required: WaterStop is autonomous and does not depend on the 110 or 220 V~ grid. With a 3-year battery life and no wires, the installation process takes much less time and effort. Ajax apps will notify an installation engineer and users about the low battery level in advance. The batteries are replaceable — so after three years, the installer pops the new ones, and WaterStop continues to operate as usual.
External Power Supply 🔌
When a constant shut-off valve operation is required or the installation place uses extreme temperatures, the batteries can discharge faster. An option to connect a 9–12 V⎓ power supply will come in handy, eliminating frequent battery replacement and reducing service costs. And the pre-installed batteries will serve as a backup, so even in a power outage WaterStop continues to operate without any problem.
Available Scenarios 🪄
WaterStop is a part of the Ajax ecosystem. Using scenarios , it can interact with automation devices and PhOD detectors of the MotionCam lineup. Whether it’s a minor water leak or a massive flooding, WaterStop shuts off the water in a matter of seconds. At the same time, MotionCam (PhOD) sends pictures to Ajax apps to identify what causes the water leak and assess the possible damage. And to prevent emergencies, automatic water supply control will turn off the water when no one is using it - a reliable combination of security and automation that runs like a Swiss watch.
