YES, I did find that button but first of all, most are a year old or older. Second of all, even these results show posts that are not (completely) what I’m asking. There are posts with a little bit of information and mostly about a specific brand (Gardena). I’m just asking people to share their suggestions and solutions. Start treating people a little nicer here… Instead of this useless answer. And maybe first check if someone is an active user that is helping others too.
He’s just suggesting the search option for you, which you didn’t mention in your post you already searched (we still aren’t mind readers), and lots of people that Don’t do that (including regular people), or don’t know what to look for, so giving a search option can be useful. (though it could have been put a bit more nicer way)
As for suggestions, I have only seen the Popp brand have a z-wave valve to control water.
Never seen an entire irrigation system on Z-wave
Its the tone of voice. I see that being done more often… edit: sorry, I see you pointed that out.
On topic; thanks. I have see multiple suggestions for elements within the system, Yes. But I don’t have to have one brand. Different products from different brands is fine. Valves and (I think) relays are the basis. But then it also gets tricky; 24v ac, 230v ac, Etc. Which relays, and how to use them outside.
Would a basis of a magnetic valve and a relay per zone be enough to setup a smart system? Or am I forgetting about something?
My setup: 24VAC valves and z-wave relays for pop-up sprinkles and dripping systems. All centralised so that’s how I deal with “use them outside” problem. If decentralised, then u need to run also electricity beside water pipes.
Google is ur friend and it shall give you results not just about specific brands but also about generic solution already posted if that’s what u looking for.
