FortrezZ Z-Wave Outdoor Water Valve Actuator Kit


Prevent water leaks from getting out of control and damaging your property with the FortrezZ Z-Wave Automated Outdoor Water Shut-off Valve. In addition to automatic valve control, the unit allows you to manually close and open the valve anytime with the Z-Wave module’s built-in On/Off buttons or remotely through your Z-Wave network. The system consists of four main components: the motorized brass ball valve (sold separately), the outdoor-rated motor to control the valve, the indoor Z-Wave control unit, and the attached water sensor. Note**  Brass Ball Valves are sold separately for the outdoor Kit.  This is different than the indoor kit, which comes pre-assembled with the appropriate sized ball valve.Together with the outdoor motor, the valve connects to your water supply line. The motor is factory-sealed waterproof and uses an outdoor-rated control cable to connect to the Z-Wave module, which installs indoors. The Z-Wave module is powered by the included plug-in adapter, and you can also optionally wire in a 12VDC battery (electrician recommended) for backup. The module provides power to the outdoor motor as well. The included indoor water probe is attached to the Z-Wave module by a 9-ft cord. When water is detected, the sensor signals the Z-Wave module to trigger the motor to close the valve, and to alert you through your Z-Wave network.
Add an unlimited number of wireless Z-Wave water sensors to monitor multiple locations.  Although the valve can operate without a Z-Wave connection, remote control does require a Z-Wave network controller. The Z-Wave control module installs indoors only. Not rated for outdoor use.
The modules come with full FCC and IC approval and are pre-scanned for CE approval.
