Anything like this for z wave?
« on: April 19, 2014, 07:19:47 pm »
Its for the Lowes Iris system. It didn't have the z-wave logo so I think its iris only like some of the others. Anyway.. Anything like this for z-save? Just need to turn the water on and off.

Thanks

Not at that price point. There are Z-Wave water shutoff valves but they are for your water main. I think the best route for accomplishing this with Vera would be to use a valve that can be actuated by a relay and connect it to a GlobalCache relay or some arduino gizmo.
My forum account was apparently hacked by a leprechaun. And he's drunk all of the time. If a post of mine seems a little off kilter, it's probably because he made it.

The Lowe's Orbit Iris Hose Timer (Model 27087) is a Zigbee device. It is therefore not compatible with today's Veras, up to and including Vera 3 and Vera Lite.

Has anyone added on zigbee capability to vera with something like Raspberry Pi with a zigbee dongle?

This little hose end attachment could be quite useful for folks wanting to do a little outdoor project like flower pots or topping off a pool.

Vera's HTML capability screams interoperability.

I could have sworn the Vera team at the last CES were showing a Zigbee controller. I'm hoping it will be available as an add-on for Vera...

I've seen a video of that demo but can't find it at this moment.

I also found this today. Also at Lowes. I haven't done any research on it yet but I wonder if it runs on 12volt or something like that. Plug in a low voltage power supply to a vera controlled switch and away you go. Tie in the wire on the back.

I did some searching and found someone that made a plug in timer...  Check it out, looks interesting.

Yes, and you could easily tie it into the Vera using the Arduino plug-in here http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php/board,55.0.html.  There is also a complete site at http://mysensors.org.  Feel free to ask questions but that would be the way to go so to speak!

I was told by a Vera Rep at CES 2014 that Vera would support Zigbee "by the fall of this year." 

(He also said UI7 would be released in April  :-\).

No new Vera hardware is expected this year, he said.

Lowes Iris also had a room displaying tons of new products like this valve, including dog doors, swimming pool sensors and sensors to measure whether your plants need watering.  All Zigbee, I assume.

Dog Doors? Any more details on that? I'd love to have a doggie door I can remotely lock and unlock.

They had a dog door on display.. and I even saw it recently at a Lowes store (in the Iris display).  There was no Z-Wave logo on the box.  I think that was the idea: to remotely open/lock the doggy door.
