Popp Flow Stop Gas/Water Shut-Off Controller - Valuable helper in need
Overflowing bathtubs, leaking washing machines or defects to gas and water pipelines - damages can occur almost anywhere and cause immense costs. The POPP Flow Stop can prevent this.
Flow Stop is a motor operated shut-off controller for automatic flow stop of gas and water pipes. It is equipped with Z-Wave technology. This means it is particularly suitable for use in smart homes.
The POPP Flow Stop is a good piece of security for the intelligent home defending from nasty surprises and high costs due to gas and water damages.
Even installation is child's play. The POPP Flow Stop is delivered completely including valve control/motor, power supply, mounting and Quick Start Guide and is easy to assembly on the existing ball stop valve. In doing so, all usual pipe standards, including ½ " and ¾", are possible. On this occasion no pipes must be dismantled or even water must be drained. That way the installation is normally done in 5-10 minutes.
Motor requires only 12V (1A)
The POPP Flow Stop is driven by a motor and closes the ball valve mechanically. Even though the Motor requires only 12 Volt (1A), it has a high power output as well as high torque, which reliably closes the ball valve in just 10 seconds. Also a manual closing of valve is easily possible in case of power failure - thanks to the clutch release bearing.
Controllable via PC, notebook, mobile devices
Once the Flow Stop is added to a smart home gateway via Z-Wave, the stop valve can be operated via any PC, notebook, smartphone or tablet. Additionally, in the event of leaking gas or water the smart home gateway - when combined with sensors - is able to stop a further inflow automatically and thus protects against more extensive damage and further danger.
