Horizon FCJJ-18 Fuel Cell H-Racer

  • Powered by solar panel or hydrogen fuel
  • See-through design to see how it works
  • Alternative power teaching aid
  • Educational yet also a fun toy
  • One of Time Magazine’s best inventions

The Fuel Cell H-Racer is a fun, interactive tool for both kids and adults to take a hands-on approach in learning about how renewable energy works. The H-Racer can be powered by either solar energy or hydrogen fuel. When using the solar panel, energy from the sun will power the fueling station and charge the car’s fuel cell. To power the racer with hydrogen the fueling station needs to be filled with water so that it can draw hydrogen from it; the connected tube will then transfer the hydrogen to the car’s fuel cell for power. The H-Racer was labeled as one of Time Magazine’s best inventions. Included with the kit is a renewable energy educational CD to help further educate users on these cutting edge technologies while also providing an experiment manual and assembly guide. The Fuel Cell H-Racer works great as a classroom teaching aid or for educational entertainment at home.

Avoid Costly Water Damage to your home with the INSTEON Water Leak Sensor

INSTEON Water Leak Sensor

The risk of water damage in a home is high. In fact, it is one of the most common home insurance claims. Every year millions of homeowners suffer billions of dollars in losses. But these losses can be reduced or even avoided altogether with the new INSTEON Leak Sensor.

Leak Sensor alerts you so you can stop the leak before damage to your home occurs. Simply add as many sensors as you’d like to the INSTEON Hub* (sold separately) and get instant alerts delivered via text/email to your smartphone. The INSTEON Hub also allows you to add cameras for remote monitoring, motion sensors, door/window sensors and of course control over lighting and appliances in your home.

*The Leak Sensor transmits via radio signals. The INSTEON Hub communicates via power-line only. Please be sure to have a Range Extender/Access Point or other dual-band INSTEON device installed for communication between Leak Sensor and INSTEON Hub.

For more advanced applications, consider HouseLinc or ISY-99. Together with a leak sensor you can activate a whole-house water shutoff valve when water is detected. These solutions also provide text/email alerts as well as more advanced conditional programming.

This easy to use, battery powered leak sensor can provide the early detection necessary to prevent leaks from creating major damage to your home.

The INSTEON Leak Sensor installs quickly and easily – no need to run wires or drill holes. Simply place the sensor near where water leaks may occur. Some common places are:

  • Washing machines
  • Toilets
  • Water heaters
  • Sinks
  • Refrigerators (water filters)
  • Dishwashers
  • Basements
  • Water Softeners
