Which Zwave Valve will work with this?
« on: August 21, 2017, 09:32:37 pm »
Attached is a picture of the valve that I use to turn on water to fill the pool.   
Is there a zwave valve that I could install instead of turning the handle?
Thanks!!!!!

There are at least 2 Z-wave valves that might work for you.  The Homeseer is nicer, but more expensive:

The less expensive Econet attaches to a ball valve (that you purchase and install separately).  This seems to have mixed reviews.  If you have a newer ball valve, it appears to work fine, but if you have older, stiffer valve that is harder to turn then it may not work.  See the reviews on Amazon.

I have not personally used either of these, so take this with a grain of salt.

Thanks a ton!
I'll research and try one of them.
