[Amazon.ca] Econet Z-wave main water shutoff valve controller - $126 - home automation

This z-wave smart home automation shutoff valve controller was priced at $162 and now it's dropped to $126.
I believe this is the lowest it has been in many months ( it's a dollar higher than yesterday when it was $124.87 and was $115 back on Sept, 9 according to Keepa)

it's compatible with Smarthings hub and with Wink. See FAQ - https://www.econetcontrols.com/about.html#faq
You need a electrical outlet to power it.
  • Wireless z-wave water shutoff controller for home automation systems
  • Prevent water damage (add water leak sensors)
  • Water shutoff and smartphone notification when leak detected
  • Easy installation, no plumbing required
  • Compatible with standard (z-wave) home automation systems

On Amazon.com, there are customer videos - a couple that show that you need a easily closed ball valve for the Econet to work correctly - https://www.amazon.com/EcoNet-Controls- ... B010MG372E - scroll half way down the page...

Before you jump on it, make sure you have 1/4 turn ball valve and it turns freely without much friction.
Yes you can add second in line valve but make sure you are up to it Smiling Face With Smiling Eyes
Good price

History has taught me, where I live, these valves gac up real quick and get really hard to turn. Just a note.

My main water line is in a crawl space, where I have my 2nd laundry room; but there's only one wall plug for the washer and one for the dryer.
I may have to run an extension cord, as this is a good price to not jump on.

Using water sensors in susceptible areas for leaks, it will trigger the unit to automatically shutoff the main water line.

I have a leak sensor already, I could add this into my existing automation system to shut the water main off if a leak is detected. Especially useful if you're away on vacation, etc...

Your main water line is PEX?

Good price
I have a main shut off valve that takes a couple of turns to shut the water off so I assume this will not work? I generally turn the water off when going away in the winter but this would be pretty cool.

The pipe itself is immaterial. It's the valve that needs to fit.

No go, but you can add second valve.
