A customer called a while back with an automation need that may have a number of applications. The customer owned a vacation rental condo on the beach in a popular resort area. His condo is surrounded by a number of other similar units where owners and renters enjoy the sand and surf year ‘round. The problem arises when guests inadvertently bring the sand into his newly remodeled condo. His solution was to add an outdoor shower to rinse off the sand before it finds its way into carpet and furnishings. However, how could he offer this feature for his guests while averting unauthorized use and abuse from others on the adjacent public beach?
The solution we developed utilizes a weatherproof security keypad in conjunction with a controller and motorized water valve that provide water for a predetermined period of time. When the owner adjustable run time expires, the water is automatically turned off until the next use. The owner has the ability to maintain up to 999 different user codes to assure only authorized use and prevent wasted water. Options features include the ability to remotely monitor use and disable operation from your internet connected device.
This inexpensive solution has a wide variety of other applications. The same keypad/controller arrangement can be used to offer timed access to water, power or other equipment at camp grounds, private clubs, laundries, private car washes, or anywhere controlled, unattended access is required.
