Frequently asked question
This is item uses wifi, not the Zigbee protocol that Smart Things uses. Smart Life uses wifi, that is why this device connects to Smart Life.
Not anymore. Comes with a WB3S chip which is not flashable (Tuya flash them at the factory). If you remove it and install an ESP-12 instead, you could flash that with Tasmota. Good luck!
So the App looks like you can. I have never done it. I use it as part of a home water shut off, I also have Flume water sensor. However I think I'm going to replace this valve. it's not quite up to the job. It has issues turning off/on fully. I have a 3/4 pipe ball valve. It might work better on a 1/2 valve.

One size fits all. It’s not a valve but clamps onto the existing valve

Works well, sturdy, secure.
This is one of those products, the successful application of which will depend in large degree on the mechanical aptitude of the installer. Note that there is an earlier version, with metal pipe clamp that attaches with bolts, and a later improved version that attaches with 2 SS hose clamps, this review is on the 2nd version shown in my pic.
First the cons: The bracket that mounts to the pipe with SS hose clamps, was slightly bent in shipment I guess. The part of the bracket that mounts to the actuator, is secured with two 5mm hex drive 6mm screws. One side of the bracket has two 6mm rivet nuts and the holes on the other side did not align (the holes are fairly tight tolerance so wiggling wouldn’t work. I had to clamp one side of the bracket in a vice and use an adjustable wrench to slightly torque the bracket to bring the holes into alignment. Not a big deal if you have the tools handy, but maybe a good idea to package better (the box was not damaged).
I intended to measure the force needed to operate the valve as well as the force the actuator put out (using a digital weigh scale at right angles) – but in the end I just slapped it together to see if I’d get smoke of action . . . action it is! In the picture, the actuator is shown parallel to the wall, I had to cut a hole in the wall for clearance, figuring this would be easier than unsweating the valve in a maze of plumbing between well tank and radon remediation system.
The actuator is rigid and does not appear to bend or flex as it moves the valve. On opening, actuator stops about 1/4′ (measured at end of handle) before full travel of handle. The valve appears to be fully open in terms of flow volume, and pushing against handle moves it the last little bit. In the more important closing direction, it takes the handle fully to the stop, so that’s good. Altogether a good value I think.08/26/2022Verified Purchase
Does Its Job
As many other people have said, Not so much universal. There is always some type of modification to make it work for the application. In my case, I used it for a Gas Valve. I had to extend the Flex Gas line with a 5 in black iron pipe beyond the valve to allow for the support bracket to be installed properly. The type of bracket it brings needs the space to clamp on.
The second thing was the Wi-fi programming. Instructions included are very vague and the available videos are recorded so fast that is hard to follow the application steps to program. Even after some how watching the video and pausing every so often, the recommended settings for the valve did not work. I ended installing as a Wi-fi / Bluetooth Switch (and it recognized it as the right valve). I have a 5 Mhz and 2.4 MHz Network but seemed to struggle picking up the 2.4 MHz channel. I ended up connecting to my ‘Guest Network’ that is 100% 2.4 (although is the same Home Network). All the Wi-Fi Light Switches, garage opener, etc that connect to 2.4 MHz in the same Network work fine with no issues so I know is not a Network Issue.
Overall once you get it to work it does its job. My main use is to turn off and on my main gas valve on a schedule on a daily basis. The schedule worked as intended once I figured out the network issue. So far is working as expected. I will post a follow-up as I use it every day and want to see what the long term reliability would be.07/06/2022Verified Purchase
How to connect via Bluetooth, and why you probably don't want to
This is the second time I have written this review – my prior, VERY detailed post vanished. I’ll just summarize this time.
If you have the Owfeel WiFi and Bluetooth valve controller, yes of course you can control it via Bluetooth: it’s right there in the name, so shame on commenters who say it can’t be done. But its Bluetooth capability is so difficult and in the end so restrictive on what you can do that only a few people will be able to use it. Specifically: if you will be near the valve – within 20 meters, and practically within 20 feet – and you need to turn the valve on and off manually, this will work. Say your valve is in an 18′ crawl space, once you have this set up you can open and close the valve without crawling inside and fighting off spiders. But what you cannot do is set a timer, or a schedule, or have the valve open and close based on some sort of programmed event.
The best way to think of this is the valve is WiFi, with a limited Bluetooth backup if the WiFi fails. What you want to do is to either set this up according to the instructions (which say nothing about Bluetooth at all) at a different location than where the valve is and then move the valve to the final location, or else you want to temporarily change the name of your 2.4GHz WiFi (turning off 5GHz if you have it, because the valve controller knows nothing about 5GHz but your phone will try to log onto it and both the valve and the phone must be on the exact same WiFi), set it up according to the instructions – choose ‘Socket (BLE)’ – and then switch the WiFi name back and turn your 5GHz WiFi back on. What will happen is the switch will try to log onto the now-nonexistent network it was set up on, fail to find it, and switch to Bluetooth control (it takes several minutes, you’ll know it is under Bluetooth when the icon for the controller changes from gray to green in the Tuya app).
For reasons I cannot fathom, Tuya and Smart Home can only determine the time using WiFi (i.e. there is no option to use the phone’s clock), so under Bluetooth the controller becomes unable to program based on time or events even if you leave your phone or tablet running nearby. All you can do is (1) see its open/closed status, (2) open it, (3) close it, and (4) set its default power-on behavior (force open, force closed, or do nothing). So it can be operated under Bluetooth, but only manually, and only with you and your phone present.05/10/2022Verified Purchase
Great on newer valves
Bought this after a water line burst in my home so I can quickly shut off the main before too much damage is done. Install was a pain in the butt and one of the screws broke off so I have to use a zip tie for the clamp, but otherwise it works well.05/05/2022Verified Purchase
