Aqualin Bluetooth Water Irrigation System



I’ve got one of these:
This seems to be a perfect and cheap solution to use with HA and a RPI with bluetooth but I’m having difficulties finding tutorials and tools to reverse engineering this.
Can anyone help me?



Seems that I need special hardware to do BLE Sniff :frowning:

If anyone have access to it and it’s interested in a cheap Irrigation Bluetooth Valve, will have instant :beers: from me.

You can sniff the BLE traffic directly from an Android phone (or emulator?) running the app if you want, so there is necessarily no need for a “special” hardware :slight_smile:


Is thereany update? I am very interested in it as well, did you have any luck @joaoasilva

I stumbled upon this for a different bluetooth irrigation controller script, by any chance it could be similar?


Sadly no and as winter is here I’m not using it atm but will be again next month or so as the weather gets warmer. That seems similar, yes.


Hi Guys,

I came across this topic, funny enough I was working on resolving the issue (successfully).

The code for controlling the BLE device can be found here:

Hope you will have fun with it, btw the solution can be used to port from a bash script to python or any wrapping of the BLE conversation you want.


@RoyOltmans wow, thank you so much!!
I’ll try it when I have some spare time. This is great!


Hi Everyone,

I finished a MQTT deamon version that can function as a service and can be called from home assistant via MQTT to control the Aqualin valve. It also reports the battery status of a unit on daily basis. Further more this combines very good with the miflora-mqtt-daemon (see git hub) that measures soil status via BLE via premade sensors.

I am still working on the manual but please do look at the project:

Kind regards :slight_smile:


Thanks! I’m already using HA to control based on miflora logic and works awesome. mqtt I don’t use at all but seems awesome for people that uses it!
Great job!


So you owners of this gadget, has it proven to be reliable? In case if it fails does it have a “normally-closed” valve. For example if batteries die while it is irrigating, does the valve close?
