I recently started with my home assistant and already got some things working… Some purchased sensors, switches and homemade sensors via ESPHome… I mainly rely on Zigbee via the Conbee dongle and deConz plug-in.
Most of it is automated via Node-Red and is able to communicates with me via Telegram. With that, quite a bit has been accomplished.
The next step would be to automate the sprinkler system in my backyard.
The basic requirement is that I have a valve (1’’) that I can control via home assistant (ideally via zigbee and the existing conbee) .
Power supply of 220V AC is available.
Hence my question: Can you recommend any device for this purpose?
So far I came up with the following scenarios:
Hunter PGV-100G 1" PGV & PGV JAR-TOP | Hunter Industries
Technical specs: SOLENOID SPECIFICATIONS • 24 VAC solenoid - 350 mA inrush, 190 mA holding, 60 Hz - 370 mA inrush, 210 mA holding, 50 Hz
NIN FULL 12V Power Supply DC12V Unit 1A 2A 3A 5A 6A Transformer AC 110V 220V 220 V to DC 12 Volts 12 V LED Driver for LED Strip

WEMOS D1 Mini => There is a transformer of 12V to 5V needed….
Is there maybe something more straightforward resp less complex? Less parts is always better…
I prefer to buy already manufactured components over soldering by myself (even thought I am able to do it…) Out of experience, those components are more stable resp reliable…
Hence is there a “cheap” zigbee relay for 12V DCC with 6 channels?
Thanks in advance
