I've only seen two myself. Installed one and ran across one. They seem to work as advertised.
I've never had a problem with the Hunter battery operated valves either.

Have you considered converting two existing valves into one freeing up a wire?

I haven't installed any add-a-zone but have come across a couple of them doing repairs.
They were both a few years old and the customers said they never had any problems with them.
Actually, one man had purchased the home about 5 years earlier and didn't even know the add-a-zone was there.

Otherwise you are looking at a battery operated controller like the Hunter node
Probably more than you want to get into as it requires it's own programming and won't tie back to your system.

Adding a new valve to existing system

Greetings:
I would like to add a new valve to my existing system WITHOUT running a new wire. I'm considering 1) the "add-a-zone" product; 2) the "doubler" product; or 3) something else?
It looks like the add-a-zone is more flexible (and a tish cheaper).
Does it really work?
Are there long term issues?
Am I wasting my money?
Is there a better product out there?
Thanks in advance!
Jim
