Touchless Water Control System Patents Available From ICAP Patent Brokerage

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - January 07, 2016) - ICAP Patent Brokerage announces for sale patents disclosing a gesture-driven water pressure and temperature control system, available from inventors Tyler Adams and Adam Friedman. This portfolio is offered as part of the Winter Patent Catalog and Auction, with a bidding deadline of February 11th, 2016.

"Touchless systems such as this play an essential role in the smart home and Internet of Things," said Doug Rhoten, Chairman of ICAP Patent Brokerage.

Key Characteristics & Benefits

With a 2009 priority date, the disclosed portfolio describes a touchless water control system having at least one sensor (e.g., infrared, sonic or capacitance) capable of determining hand movement from point to point in multiple directions, establishing a spatial field through which a user's hand can be moved to initiate or terminate water flow, temperature, and pressure. The technology also covers tapping proximate to the sensor to turn the water on or off, as well as a plurality of optional visual indicators (e.g., graphic, bar, chart, or numeric). This is an important portfolio for companies involved in IoT and smart home integration, or plumbing fixture manufacturers.

Sample forward citing companies include Gerberit AG.
