Abstract:
    An IOT based device for revolutionizing conventional gas-based water heaters, by enabling real-time remote control & monitoring, energy saving, scheduling, and user safety measures.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    1) Upto 30% gas consumption reduction with schedule based geyser turn-on and turn-off. 2) Convenience to user via remote control & monitoring across the globe. 3) User safety by gas leakage detection. 4) Providing improvement to existing geysers instead of whole new geysers. 5) Complete automation.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Our prime audience are domestic users with pre-fitted conventional gas water heaters. The need for gas saving and rising prices enable us to target a market of potentially 50,000 homes in Islamabad alone.
How will the solution works
    1) An add on device housing temperature sensors, leakage sensors, and actuators. 2) Servo Motor control for Temperature regulation. 3) Wi-Fi based communication for remote control and monitoring 4) Android application for remote control, monitoring, and scheduling. 5) Pilot Control and Feedback mechanism. 6) Cloud storage. A user will select temperature or schedule a time, on android app which will get updated to the cloud, and will control the device to user defined settings accordingly.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Our main competitor is JalBujh, which provides a similar solution but with far less capabilities. JalBujh does not provide pilot control or feedback, leakage detection, and provides a very limited range of upto 100m using bluetooth. Our solution tackles all these problems.
