Hardware

Water shut-off in 7 seconds

WaterStop is equipped with a powerful actuator of up to 8.5 N•m torque. This is enough to shut off even a stuck-up valve without the risk of damaging it. Under normal operating conditions, WaterStop shuts off the water in 7 seconds after the command or automatically by scenario whenever LeaksProtect or a third-party sensor detects flooding. In a setting with a ¾-inch pipe and 2.5 bar of pressure in the water supply system, less than 33 oz of water will leak out.

Inside the water leak prevention system based on Ajax, every device operates either on pre-installed batteries or has a backup power supply in case of a blackout. The system monitors the facility 24/7, giving you complete peace of mind that the property is protected.

  • Shuts even a stuck-up valve

  • Suitable for facilities with unstable or no power supply

Protected on every level

WaterStop is suitable for controlling both hot and cold water supplies and is ready to operate in challenging environments. With additional protection, WaterStop withstands overcurrent and notifies about overheating, making it impossible for the electric actuator to fail even when the shutoff valve is stuck.

  • Overheating notification

  • Overcurrent protection

One-stop solid brassware

WaterStop is available in three versions with different valve options: ½” (DN 15), ¾” (DN 20), or 1” (DN 25). Those are the most common sizes used to cover any demand, from residential to business facilities. Also, the WaterStop electric actuator is compatible with all ball valves that meet the ISO 5211 standard. So when it comes to specific tasks and sizes, a plumber installs an available on every market compatible valve, and the installation engineer easily connects the electric actuator.

How to check if WaterStop is compatible with a third-party shutoff valve

Installation without any construction involved

The myth about anti-flood systems being difficult to install is busted. Ajax minimized an expensive, long, and dusty experience for clients and professionals. Cutting-edge hardware and software engineering allowed us to implement advanced capabilities with significant autonomy in a compact size. Miniature Ajax water leak detectors suit hard-to-reach places and do not require enclosure disassembling — they can be installed on a horizontal surface without attaching. The shutoff valve is installed in line with an existing plumbing system. The actuator unit does not require wires and fits limited spaces, having four possible installation positions towards the valve.

Autonomous operation

Stable performance for years

Batteries

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.

Batteries
  • Up to 3 years of operation with pre-installed batteries

  • In-app low battery warning

  • Replaceable CR123A batteries

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.

External power supply
  • 9–12 V⎓ power supply connection

  • Pre-installed batteries as a backup power source

Unique wireless technologies

The Ajax system uses two-way secure radio communication based on Jeweller proprietary protocol. It supports block cipher encryption and device authentication on every session with the hub to prevent sabotage, spoofing, or data theft.

Ajax wireless technology has up to 3,609 ft of radio signal communication range in an open space, making it on average longer than competing solutions from different manufacturers. Automatic power adjustment makes it energy efficient by not using the maximum power of radio transmitters in system devices on a regular basis. It is also more stable, using less noisy radio frequencies. For protection against radio interference and signal interception, Ajax hubs use frequency hopping: the system automatically changes frequency within a band and notifies the security company and users about the jamming.

  • Up to 3,609 ft of radio communication range with a hub

  • Encrypted two-way radio communication

  • Notifications about jamming and connection loss

Jeweller

The Ajax radio protocol uses polling to display current device statuses and transmits alarms, events, and all the readings into the Ajax apps. Jeweller features encryption and authentication to prevent spoofing.

Advanced automation for greater safety

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.

WaterStop — remote-controlled water stop valve from Ajax

The WaterStop tap allows you to remotely shut off the water supply in the room under the control of the Ajax security system. The device combines a high-quality Bonomi Industries valve and an electric actuator with a control unit. The faucet to control the water supply is connected to the control panel via the secure wireless Jeweller protocol. WaterStop can be controlled remotely from anywhere in the world, simply by having access to the Internet. Ajax's applications for PC and mobile phones allow you to check the status and change the position of the valve at any time. The water stop valve from Ajax WaterStop will automatically turn off the water in 7 seconds on the alarm of the LeaksProtect water leakage sensor or another water leakage sensor. At the time of an alarm, all users connected to the system and the security company will receive a notification about the alarm and the activation of the scenario. In addition to the scenario in case of leakage, it is possible to set the shutdown of water at a certain time or at the time when the security system becomes armed.

Features of WaterStop Remote Controlled Water Shutoff Faucet

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. With the help of the valve, the water is blocked in 7 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.

The WaterStop Water Stop Faucet supports automation scenarios such as:

  1. Responds to water leakage sensor alarms.
  2. To change the security mode.
  3. Performs scheduled activities.
  4. Fires when a Button is pressed.
