Electrically actuated water shut-off valve for use with the housEvolve Water Presence Detector. Each water detector can control up to 2 shut-off valves.

In stand-alone mode, the detector will automatically shut off the water valves it is connected to if water is detected at any of its sensors.

In a housEvolve system, the Main Controller can be instructed to shut off all valves in the system, regardless of which detector they connect to, when any Water Presence Sensors detect water.

The valves may be turned on or off remotely by phone. (Note that this control ability is global: all valves in the system will either turn off or on there is no individual valve access).

The valves can also manually Open or Close locally by pressing the OPEN or CLOSE buttons.

The EPA Recognizes January as National Radon Action Month–Make Sure Your Home is Safe

January 5, 2012 Leave a comment

According to the EPA they are encouraging all to take part in National Radon Action Month, by taking small simple steps to test their homes from harmful radon gas. First you may want to get familiar with what radon is.

Radon is a natural, radioactive gas that comes from the breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water. It can enter homes through cracks in the foundation or other openings such as holes or pipes. In addition to testing for radon, there now are safer and healthier radon-resistant construction techniques that home buyers can discuss with builders to prevent this health hazard.

Approximately 21,000 people die from radon related lung cancer each year in the U.S. according to the EPA. These drastic numbers can be reduced with these simple steps:

  1. Test: EPA and the U.S. Surgeon General recommend that all homes, both with and without basements, be tested for radon. Affordable Do-It-Yourself radon test kits are available at home improvement and hardware stores and online or a qualified radon tester can be hired.
  2.  Fix: EPA recommends taking action to fix radon levels above 4 Picocuries per Liter (pCi/L). Addressing high radon levels often costs the same as other minor home repairs.
  3. Save a Life: By testing and fixing for elevated levels of radon in your home, you can help prevent lung cancer while creating a healthier home and community.

Wouldn’t it be Nice to Receive a Reminder to Not Pull Into Your Garage When You Have Gear Loaded on Your Roof Rack

January 5, 2012 Leave a comment

It can be easy to forget about the bicycle, kayak, camping equipment, or other gear strapped to the roof of your vehicle, especially after a long drive. And if you pull into your garage with your gear on the top of your car, you could significantly damage your gear, your car, and your home. This wireless alert system prevents that from ever happening again. Consisting of a wall-mounted sign, audio alerter, and gear tags, the alert system is easy to use and could potentially save you thousands of dollars in repairs. The sign should be mounted where it is visible to you as you pull into the garage while the audio alerter can be clipped to your sun visor. Gear tags are water resistant and can be attached directly to your equipment or slipped into bags and cases.

With the included power adapter, the sign is continually detecting for the gear tags to provide constant protection. When gear tags are in sensing range of the sign, audio and visual warnings will be issued – the sign will flash and the alerter will beep. The warnings will last three minutes, so you can be sure to see and hear them. The alerter can easily be silenced with a quick button press. Comes with one alerter for your car and two gear tags.
