About


Hey, we are KAFTS Technologies!

                  Introduction to our Flood Detection Device

 The IoT Flood Monitoring System is an electronic guard designated for detecting the presence of water leak in buildings, informing subscribed users and turning off the electromechanical water valve.

Highlights

  • We have developed the first prototype.
  • We have great relationships with manufacturing companies.
  • We have already established stable relations with potential installers and customers.

The Business

We are looking for help in developing an IoT device, which is going to be monitoring buildings for water leaks and measuring water usage. The goal is to prevent floods by turning off the electromechanical water valve in case of leaks and informing the subscribed user via SMS or email. The device is going to be sold or leased depending upon the customer requirements. We expect to further expansion of the business to work with insurance companies, plumbing companies and house-builders. 

The Market

The primary market is all buildings with a high risk of flood, high insurance costs and high value - museums, private collections, villas, airports, jewellers, hotels, pubs, libraries, cinemas, shops. In further steps, households especially rented and council houses. A significant part of clients would be plumbers as they could be contracted installers and behave as distributors.

Progress/Proof

KAFTS Technologies is at the stage of developing a final prototype. The system will consist of three devices: battery-powered sensor, valve control unit and alarm integrator. All devices communicate wirelessly on a distance of up to 50 meters inside a building. The low power capabilities of the sensor are giving over ten years lifetime on a single coin cell battery. The valve control unit is a flexible device that is compatible with most electromechanical valves on the market. The alarm integrator is a GSM ready device. It can integrate with a variety of alarm and smart building systems. At the same time, it can send text messages to inform subscribed users.

Objectives/Future

● Expand the product functionalities and integrate with various IoT technologies.
● Finalise design, CE certificate and set up the manufacturing.
● Focus on customer and installers relationships.

Why can you trust us? 

Although KAFTS Technologies is a start-up company, we are backed up by many years of experience in designing and developing the technology for various industries, from commercial, through medical and marine to the military market.

Prototype Set

Please, note that due to the certification procedures, the device will be first launched on the European market, and at later dates to the USA and Canada.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge that we can think of is going through the certification process that is obligatory for all the electronic devices that are aiming to hit the market. It is essential to us that our product passes its all stages promptly. The worst-case scenario for this challenge is that the Flood Monitoring Device delivery may be delayed due to the complexity of this process.
