Device a 2019 ‘Best of IBS’ finalist for “Best Home Technology Product”
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – Feb. 19, 2019 – Leading plumbing manufacturer Reliance Worldwide Corporation (ASX:RWC) unveiled its new StreamLabs® Control shutoff valve at the 2019 NAHB International Builders Show (IBS). The device features patented ultrasonic technology for real-time water monitoring, with smart leak detection and automatic shutoff capabilities to stop leaks in their tracks.
The StreamLabs Control valve, along with other innovations from RWC, will be on interactive display at booth N1462 during IBS 2019, taking place Feb. 19-21 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. StreamLabs Control is also a finalist in the 2019 ‘Best of IBS’ awards for ‘Best Home Technology Product,’ the winners of which will be announced Thursday, Feb. 21 at 3 p.m. at IBS Live (booth SU873).
RWC, a global leader in plumbing technology, is known for leading brands that include StreamLabs, SharkBite®, Cash Acme®, HoldRite®, John Guest® and others. StreamLabs Director of Marketing and Operations Jeff Long said the StreamLabs Control valve builds upon the popularity of the StreamLabs Smart Home Water Monitor, a smart leak detection device introduced by RWC last year.
“The StreamLabs Control is the smart valve that a renowned valve company would design,” said Long. “Just one StreamLabs Control will protect an entire home from costly water damage and provides homeowners with complete control of their water from anywhere with our free StreamLabs app.”
The StreamLabs Control valve can be opened and closed remotely using the StreamLabs app, with automatic shutoff in the event of a leak. The device uses advanced sensors to measure water flow rate, water pressure, water temperature, ambient (air) temperature and relative humidity, providing real-time push notifications, valve status alerts and freeze warnings. It also utilizes data analytics to provide water use history, conduct pressure decay testing and deliver user-configurable abnormal usage and leak alerts.
In addition to Nest and Alexa integration options, the StreamLabs Control features ‘home’ and ‘away’ modes and adaptive leak detection that learns water usage patterns and introduces appropriate leak setting parameters.
