I’ve been looking but I am failing to find a ZigBee or Zwave irrigation valve /controller that attaches to the hose bib. I saw one by Woox.
However they are not readily available here in the US. I would be very appreciative if any (poke poke
@JDRoberts) would know of something like this.
This is the only one I’ve heard of, but I don’t have personal experience and it’s no longer being manufactured so you’re stuck with eBay, etc:
Has anyone else seen this product from Lowes. I think its the older Zigbee Version but i dont know for sure. I dont think it will work with ST but i wanted to ask around to be sure…I would love to find something like this that would work. Any ideas would be great… thanks.
I was at Lowes today and saw the Iris Sprinkler Timer made by Orbit. It looks like it is ZWave from the only posts I could find online (Mi Case forums). So i bought one, brought it home and it paired with the hub. YEAH!!!
It was detected as unknown and that is all i have gotten accomplished. I was hoping someone else has a devide type for it, or a clue what to try. HELP I want to get my drip irrigation system under control.
The other option I can think of would be to combine a normally open or normally closed 120V solenoid valve with a smart outlet - something like this (reviews are not great, there should be plenty of similar products out there):
Combined with adapter fittings:
Then program your outlet to turn on when you want the water to flow.
@MarkTr mentioned, I think most people just use the smart plug method with a standard dumb electric valve. You can see several project reports on this approach. At the time, a lot of people were using a Wi-Fi plug because you get better range, but as long as you can find a Z wave/Zigbee One that works where you want to put it, you can use any model.
You can see some of the project reports on the following list:
This works fine, the only negative is that you are buying two devices instead of just one.
At our house, we use Orbit’s B-hyve, but the only integration would be through Alexa routines so it may not meet your needs. It’s Bluetooth to its own Wi-Fi bridge, then cloud cloud. We liked it because it’s battery powered and we didn’t have an outlet nearby. It’s been very reliable for us for about a year and a half.

Hi! I have that equipment, which works well with Tuya hub, but I could not add to Smartthings hub.
If anyone has a solution, I would be happy also.
