Wireless LoRaWAN valve

Extreme Range Wireless Smart-Valve

STREGA LoRa wireless smart valve is an all-in-one battery operated valve of superior quality and of exclusive design with embedded LoRa LPWAN wireless technology. With its ultra-low-power consumption, the valve can operate on batteries during 10+ years and through extreme long distances from the gateway/concentrator with an exceptional obstacles penetration.

With its additional Digital Input connected to a water moisture sensor, for instance, the valve can be turned off at the main line stopping the leak before major damage is done and at the same time send an alarm to your smartphone through the gateway.

STREGA is partnering with one of the leading valve manufacturer to provide an exclusive long lasting smart-valve solution. While most other valve designs may corrode after time (especially when maintained months in a specific opened or closed condition), the STREGA smart-valve has a unique mechanism where fluid is never in contact with the diaphragm mechanical parts. The STREGA smart-valve combines ultra long range LoRa LPWAN communication with an ultra-low power design. This wireless valve runs Lithium batteries for 10+ years while transmitting several parameters like valve state (Open/Close), device ID (unique AES128 encryption key), battery level, signal strength, enclosure tampering (is the box tentatively open for fraud ?), alarm, flow, etc… A leak detection, for instance, can immediately trigger the closing of the valve then report the issue to the owner. You can control back the smart-valve from a Control Center or from a secure link via your smartphone.
