Válvula de seguridad de agua con control multifuncional inteligente


Oferta Tecnológica
Un inventor croata ha desarrollado una válvula de seguridad de agua con control multifuncional inteligente que se gestiona mediante SMS (servicio para enviar mensajes cortos) desde teléfonos móviles, sistemas de gestión inteligente de viviendas y otros programas de software. La tecnología ofrece ventajas en términos de seguridad, ahorro, confort y consumo eficiente de energía y funciona mediante energías renovables. La tecnología consta de dos dispositivos: una válvula de seguridad conectada a la tubería de agua y un controlador que se instala en la vivienda. Se buscan compañías en los sectores de suministro de agua, gestión de fluidos, etc. con el fin de establecer acuerdos de licencia.


Water safety valve with intelligent multifunctional controller
A Croatian inventor has developed a water safety valve with intelligent multifunctional controller managed by SMSes (Short Message Service) from mobiles, smart house management systems and other software programs. The invention incorporates safety, savings, comfort and efficient usage of energy and it functions on renewable energy source (water flow). Licence agreement is sought with companies in the sectors of water supply, liquid management etc.
The water safety valve with controller enables the user to control its water pipes, to react quickly and it assures against possible losses of water caused by various defects on the tubing or on the points of use. It can measure, monitor and control the water consumption. If a problem occurs valve will close and prevent higher level leakage and save costs.
The water safety valve with controller is a multifunctional device because it is a safety device that prevents water losses and saves money, and a water gauge that measures and monitors the water consumption. Water safety valve can be managed by simple SMS (Short Message Service) messaging from any mobile telephone as well as it can notify the owner of the water consumption status.
Invention is composed of two devices: safety valve that is attached to the water pipe and controller that is usually installed in the house. Safety valve can operate independently, without the controller.

The water safety valve with controller has received many international awards. Innovation has also received a letter UNDP (United Nations Development Programme) for energy efficiency and positive opinion about this innovation.
Geneva 2010 - Bronze Medal
Ljubljana 2010 - Bronze Medal
Zagreb 2010 - Silver Medal

Current and Potential Domain of Application: The water safety valve has a wide range of applications. It can be used in all types of buildings (house, flat, office buildings, production facilities, habitat, sports courts, commercial buildings, public offices etc.). Besides its use as a water safety device, the valve can be used as a safety valve for other liquids because it can be calibrated for measuring the flow of various fluids. It can be network connected to other systems such as smart house management.
Prefered partner is who would like to make licence agreement for using this solution.
Advantages and Innovations:
The water safety valve with controller brings the following advantages:
Safety -The water safety valve with controller monitors and secures the water pipes, reacts at the right moment and consequently prevents losses of water and possible damages. It also informs the user of its actions.

Savings - The savings are measurable as the volume of water itself as a valuable ecological resource, but the savings exist as well in the possible causes of material damage that may occur in case of leakage on the pipes or devices at the point of use.
The savings are granted by the fact that the water safety valve with controller always demands water pipes and devices in perfect condition. The water safety valve with controller enables the user to manage, monitor and control the consumption, which means savings. It also allows for additional economies because the water safety valve with controller holds and gives the user some useful instructions and guidelines on how to reduce the water consumption of the household.
Company is using a Short Message Service. It can also use the SMS to Comfort - The remote control of the water safety valve is implemented in its controller and it communicates via a mobile phone connection, so from the comfort of her home, from her office or virtually anywhere, one can control the operation of the safety valve, program it and be immediately alerted in the case it is activated to cut the water flow. Moreover, via a mobile phone, one can obtain the information on her water consumption (actual, monthly, yearly), and the monthly recording of the volume of consumed water can automatically be sent to the distributor (water supply receive messages from the distributor (e.g. works on the grid, monthly bills, warnings on late payments, price changes etc.) and a number of other useful options.

Universality - The remote control of the water safety valve has a wide range of applications. It can be used in all types of buildings (office buildings).
