Valve Controller 2 & EVO Valve Operator, w/YoLink Hub, 3-Pack Water Leak Sensor 1

W
William Franklin
This YoLink starter pack is a great start toward protecting and controling you house

I have seen many houses with catastrophic damage from water leaks while the owners were on vacation, or even just gone for the day to work. I have always worried about water leaks when on vacation, coming home after 10 days and finding water running out the doors...

I had been turning the main water valve of when I was gone on a trip but then if the pool needed water, or someone came to water the plants they had to mess with turning the water on, in some cases forgetting to turn it off... And recently the valve had been getting harder to turn off and needed to be replaced.

I finally decided to do something about it before a trip we just returned from. My first thoughts were to put one of the well known name brand valves on that worked on wifi so i could turn it on and off from where ever I was, and pair it with some leak sensors. After a little research I found that these valves with built in controllers can have a lot of issues, and some do not tolerate hard water or scale very well. And you generally need a plumber to install them, and then come back when there is an issue to change them. These valves can be very expensive as well.

I started looking at valve actuators that just manipulate a regular 90 degree ball valve. If the actuator has an issue you don't need a plumber. With the YoLink EVO valve operator the controller is separate, connected by wire so if the valve or the operator has an issue you don't have to replace, buy, both.

I decided to buy the starter set, and ordered six more water sensors, and an extra bulldog operator and controller 1 to turn the water valve on and off to the pool. I had a plumber install a new high quality ball valve for the main. I already had a ball valve at the pool spigot.

I got the app, connected the hub to wifi and started by setting the controllers for the valves up.Then I named the leak sensors for their locations, behind toilets, under sinks, dishwasher, washer, water heater, refrigerator/ice maker. Then I paired all of them to the controller 2 which runs the EVO valve operator at the main valve. I tested all the sensors and they closed the valve in less than 30 seconds. I used the EVO valve operator and controller 2 for the main valve because the valve operator sets right on the stem of the valve, and the controller 2 has batteries it can run on but also can be run on the ac converter which comes with it. Controller 2 also gets you feed back on the EVO valve position to the app.

I used the Bulldog valve operator that controls the valve via the valve handle for the pool spigot. I used controller 1 with this valve. It is only powered by batteries, and only sends power to the operator to open or close the valve, but no feedback as to valve position. I did it this way I only need to use this valve occasionally, and if it malfunctions my house wont be flooded. I can see through cameras when the pool needs water added, and when the valve is open the water is running or not. It also tells you on the app if this valve is opened or closed, but only by the command you gave it last, open or close. It doesn't actually get feed back of valve position. I used this valve twice to add water to the pool during a recent trip. I manually set it to run for 10 minutes each time and it preformed flawlessly.

The app is easy to work with, just follow the instructions to get started. It's very easy to use a customize to your liking. You can set up alerts for for different things, different scenarios. YoLink has many products that can be connected to your system via a single hub. I will add few things to my system as time goes on.

Bottom line is I spent less than $500.00 on reliable durable system that allows me to monitor, receive alerts and make changes my water system no matter where I am. Peace of mind can be priceless...

I will include a few pics to show how I mounted and protected the valves and controllers from the relentless Florida weather. The green covers are used in landscape irrigation systems to keep water from spraying on walkways and such. I used them for this...

Yolink water valve

This DYI unit is awesome, easy to install and works great. I had to use custom service to make sure I had the setting set correctly so the unit automatically turned off once the sensor sensed water. Customer service was beyond great. Very kind and knowledgeable. Great product…

It was so easy to connect, I didn't know I was done.

Overall, this was easy to set up.
Once I installed the app on my phone, connecting and configuring was handled easily with individualized QR labels on each component.
The directions didn't clearly state it's that easy, and I was already finished. I tried to continue with the next steps. When I gave up and called Customer Service, I got a live person who knew the answers--in less than a minute. Bonus: excellent English (maybe native speaker? )
One hint: My cold water supply valve had a brass finger sticking up to limit the handle's arc of travel (to 90 degrees). It got in the way of attaching the motor to the valve axle. A small cutting wheel on a generic Dremel (Harbor Freight) solved the problem nicely.
I had water damage a couple years ago, and had been anxious about something happening when we were out of town for a weekend. Having verified that a damp finger triggered immediate shut off, I am looking for something else to stress about.

Amazing!

This is brilliant! I am 59 & was able to follow the instructions & set it up by myself. It took me a phone call to the company to get the device to device pairing to work, but now, even without wifi or power, the valve will shut down the water to the house. I have such peace of mind now & highly recommend it!

OVERVIEW:

INTRO / FEATURES & BENEFITS:

  • INTRODUCTION
  • FEATURES
  • BENEFITS
  • STANDALONE
The Valve Controller 2: features include an outdoor-rated controller with 2+ years between battery changes (batteries are included). New features for the Valve Controller 2 include multiple power options. Using the included AC-to-12VDC power adapter, plug this in for normal operation on AC power, with battery "back-up", or use the adapter, only, or do not use the adapter for standard battery-powered (only) operation. (For even longer battery life, check out the X3 Valve Controller)

With the EVO Valve Operator. The EVO Valve Operator is a "bolt-on" ball valve operator/manipulator with a new and innovative attachment system. Rather than a "push/pull" approach to moving the ball valve lever, the EVO replaces the handle of the ball valve, and attaches directly to the ball valve shaft. This significantly improves efficiency, and overcomes most issues (related to the valve condition) that the Bulldog Valve Operator might be challenged by. As the EVO and ball valve essentially become one mechanism, this eliminates most of the issues that push/pull mechanisms have, that require specific adjustments to achieve ideal leverage, etcetera, specifically with older, stiffer, and/or larger valves. Installation is simple, and takes 15 minutes or less using only a Phillips screwdriver. 

The controller and EVO work in conjunction to provide smart wireless valve control, with YoLink's LoRa-based extreme long range wireless technology. 

  • Simple Do-It-Yourself, no-plumber-required, installation. The EVO installs in about 15 minutes, with just a Phillips screwdriver. (The valve controller installation requires additional tools and hardware for wall-mounted installation)
  • Wireless operation; no 120V outlet or additional wiring required
  • LoRa long-range/low-power technology offers 2+ years battery life, compared to 1+ year for other brands
  • Alexa, Google, voice assistant, Home Assistant and IFTTT integration
  • YoLink Control D2D device-to-device pairing allows for the Smart Motorized Valve to be directly controlled by YoLink water sensors or other devices, without an internet connection, and without power ("No WiFi, No Internet, No Power - No Problem!")
  • S.D.I.M - Smart Device Integrity Monitoring means your smart device is supervised 24/7 for communication and device health. Should your device fail to communicate or have a device health issue, you can be notified (per your alarm strategy settings). Each device has a unique identification number and it is individually monitored by the YoLink cloud server, 24/7, continuously
  • YoLink’s industry-leading long range communication (up to 1/4 mile, open air!) allows for operation in larger homes and in areas difficult for other wireless systems, such as basements, separate garages/structures, and even outside your home
Add smart control, including remote manual control, schedule control, and automation based on interaction with other smart devices (such as YoLink smart water leak sensors). Additionally, the valve can be controlled by third-party applications like IFTTT, Home Assistant, Google and Alexa (including voice commands, like "Alexa, turn off the water")

Avoid the expense, inconvenience and mess associated with the installation of non-wireless valve controllers.

Enjoy functionality even during a power outage. Control-D2D paired devices will perform their paired function automatically, without an internet connection, without the app, and without AC power (in the case of battery-powered or battery-backed-up devices - an internet connection is required for full functionality and for the app to work.)

To enjoy all the features of your smart valve controller, it requires a connection to a YoLink hub (with an internet connection). While you can utilize the valve controller in a "standalone" mode, and use Control-D2D (device-to-device pairing) to pair your valve controller directly to water leak sensors and/or to a YoLink fob, these are intended to be "back-up" or supplemental configurations. 

The app will not function without a hub, and without a hub, the valve controller can not report or inform you of device health issues, such as low batteries.
