  • Patent number: 10416616
    Abstract: A method adapted to provide alert signals to individuals or institutions and/or control signals to utilities control units to automatically stop the flow of gas, water, electricity, oil, etc., such signals being delivered in response to the detection of seismic events, the detection occurring via ground-based monitoring systems and/or satellite-based monitoring systems. The alert and/or control signals are distributed through various broadcasting systems or similar channels of communication, such as radio frequency transmitters, Internet service providers, cell phone wireless carriers, satellite phone service providers and/or security monitoring service providers, to individuals and/or facilities through smartphones, landline telephones, tablets, PC's, voice-controlled web communication devices or the like and/or to signal receivers on utilities control units.

  • Patent number: 9601947
    Abstract: A utilities control system with a DC powered control system located within a building or room and having in combination an occupant activation device, a seismic sensor and a wireless transmitter; a wireless receiver in combination with a utilities shut-off device, and whereby upon either a change in status of the occupant activation device or the sensing of a seismic event by the seismic sensor, a signal is transmitted from the wireless transmitter to the wireless receiver such that the utilities shut-off device is activated to stop delivery of utilities.

  • Patent number: 9573665
    Abstract: A tow winch powered by a DC motor and a rechargeable battery. A tow rope is wound by the winch spool, the tow rope having a tow handle with one or more wireless throttle control members to start, stop and adjust the speed and acceleration of the retrieval operation. A marker device is incorporated into or attached to the tow rope and a sensor switch is provided on the base, whereby when the marker device is detected by the sensor switch the winch is disengaged. The base and operational components are sized and structured such that straps may be connected to the base and the tow winch carried like a backpack.

  • Patent number: 6849814
    Abstract: A gravity-type sensor device comprising a switch which monitors the position of an object over a three dimensional pathway which extends dimensionally about all three orthogonal axes where the object may be tilted, rotated or inverted, as well as translated through space rather than maintained at a fixed location, so as to provide a signal to indicate that the object is moving in the correct three dimensional manner, whereby the switch is disposed within an external housing in a manner that allows the position of the switch to be altered relative to the housing, thereby allowing the angle or plane of the pathway to be adjusted when the housing is attached to different objects.

  • Publication number: 20050017142
    Abstract: A hanger for retaining insulation blankets disposed between adjacent joists or rafters, the hanger having an L-shaped hanger bracket received in sliding relationship by a U-shaped mounting bracket, wherein the mounting bracket is placed onto the joist or rafter and the height of the hanger bracket is adjustable relative to the mounting bracket for proper location of the insulation blanket dependent on the dimensions of the joist or rafter. Cooperating structural components on the mounting bracket and on the hanger bracket retain the hanger bracket in the proper disposition while allowing the relative position to be adjusted with relatively little force. Retention members to retain the insulation blanket and nail apertures for fixation of the hanger bracket without need for the mounting bracket are provided on the hanger bracket.

  • Patent number: 6603084
    Abstract: A gravity responsive attitude switch containing electrical contacts separated by a gap, the switch containing a bead liquid and a carrier liquid, the two liquids being immiscible and having different electric resistivity values, where the liquid bead may be disposed between the contacts by properly positioning the switch. The contacts are connected in an electronic circuit which senses the difference in resistivity dependent on whether the bead liquid or the carrier liquid is bridging the gap between the contacts, which in turn determines whether an operative electric circuit is opened or closed.
