The FortrezZ WV-01 is a new professional grade, electrically operated wireless water valve. Used in a wireless Z-Wave home automation network in conjunction with any Z-Wave water alarm sensor (ex. WWA-0X), the WV-01 can reduce or eliminate damages caused by leaky plumbing or appliances. Every year nearly over 1 million families have their homes ruined and their lives overturned by water damage and the subsequent repairs. These incidents are always unexpected and the cost of repairs can run into the tens of thousands of dollars.The patented WV-01 wireless water detection and automatic water shutoff system can easily be installed on any home's water supply line by a professional, certified plumber. WV-01 can also work as a water level / irrigation device. It can be set up to be on a "timed" schedule using a Smart Controller.

You think insurance companies would subsidize the purchase of this product. For example State Farm, Travelers, All State, etc. The manufacturer should really check that out and see if that is possible.
My rating is on the concept of the system.

What an amazing concept. Kudos to the folks that thought of a way to apply z-wave technology to a water damage scenario. Installed it a few months ago. Works like a charm. I installed an outlet inside a wall on an adjacent stud so the unit can draw its power locally. I set these both beneath a wall access panel and painted it. You'd never know it. Great product and highly recommended.
