Faucets, Flush Valves, Backflow Preventers, Grease Interceptors, Floor Drains, Roof Drains, and Restroom Occupancy Sensors are all connected to the internet. Equals better facility management and Smart Connected Buildings
How Smart Connected Building Works
Zurn Connected Products are equipped with advanced sensors that detect changes and track product performance. The data is transmitted wirelessly via the built-in LoRa radio system to the Zurn Gateway located nearby.
The Zurn Gateway then sends the data to the Zurn Cloud for analysis via an Ethernet connection to the local area network (LAN). If a local Ethernet connection is not an option, the gateway can be set up to communicate directly with the Zurn Cloud via LTE cellular. Algorithms in the Zurn Cloud analyze the data – all displayed on our secure portal, plumbSMART, and delivered via email or text alert.
Each Zurn Connected Product comes with default alert parameters, which can be customized in plumbSMART based on the specific needs of your building and maintenance protocols.
Depending on the functionality of the equipment, some Zurn Connected Products can sense when to act in order to protect your building. Again, these parameters can be set through your plumbSMART account to accommodate your operation.
From manual to Smart Connected Building
The Zurn Gateway functions similar to an Internet modem by syncing your plumbing products to the secure Zurn Cloud. This allows your Zurn Connected Products to talk to you and your staff in real-time via the portal, email, and text.
One gateway can handle several hundred Zurn Connected Products within a 1,000-foot spherical radius, which means you’ll never overwhelm the system.
If your facility utilizes a local area network (LAN) to connect to the internet, you can simply connect the Zurn Gateway to a network port using an Ethernet cable.
If you’re opting for LTE Cellular, we recommend placing the gateway in an optimal location for receiving a strong and reliable LTE cellular signal. Your Zurn representative should be able to assist you throughout this process.
