Watercop integration
« on: May 04, 2018, 02:48:36 pm »
Hi all,

I bought a Watercop Zwave 3/4" water shut off valve.   It's intended to be a water shut off valve, but I am using it just as a valve.  The ON position is actually closing the pipe, off opens it (a bit backwards in my application but it's no big deal).   Anyway, I am using it to control my misting system. 
   It works great, however, Vera constantly reports the node as "busy", but it still works fine. 
I suspect this is because it takes the unit a second or two to transition from Open to Closed (or close to open), but am not certain. 

Is anyone else using this? If so, how are you getting around this?  I setup the device as GE outdoor switch because there seemed to be no better fit, maybe that's the issue... if so, what should it be?

I am thinking about getting a few of these. Are you still having the node report back as busy?
Have you tried calling Vera to see if there is a fix for this?
Curious. Thanks.
