    I think they should make a celanoid shutoff that is digitally controlled so say I'm working for so and so I lock this shutoff valve to my phone when the customer doesn't pay in a timely matter I lock the valve closing there water source when they call saying we have no water. We could say yah and I have no check. You get paid you unlock the valve from your phone well your enjoying your vacation in Hawaii.

    cant you do that now with a wireless internet thermostat, transformer and solenoid valve? Put it all in a radio shack project box and you're all set.

    tie the solenoid to the fan control.

      If they could get away with it the water companies would have it built into the meter.

      The so called 'smart meters' the electric utilities are bringing out (next gen, not the current ones) will have this capability.
