I'm looking at the possibility of moving from SmartThings to hubitat (hub should arrive Wednesday).
One of the things I'm not sure about is whether I will be able to move my water shut-off valve or not.
It is a zwave-plus HomeSeer HS-WV100+.
Looking at the details of this device in the Z-Wave Alliance it seems to be a rebranded "Leak Gopher Z-Wave Valve Controller" from Leak Gopher / Leak Intelligence, they even run the same firmware version, mine is actually on 2.9 which is the same version HomeSeer is using (as per their forums).

Leak Gopher Z-Wave Valve Controller
I have the Leak Gopher one and it works fine apart small problem with the Dashboard not updating automatically:
I just added a "Leak Gopher Z-Wave Water Control"
It includes as Device and seems to work fine using the "Generic Z-Wave Valve".
If i close it from the dashboard (using the Valve template) after it closes the icon stays green until the dashboard is refreshed, dashboard opened on other devices will also need a refresh to show the change.
If I manually open and close it (physical button on the valve controller) I can see the device states changing correctly without having to refresh the de…
Ah, good deal! I was wondering who really made it - I knew HomeSeer didn't.
I only use it in emergencies, so the dashboard not updating/refreshing automatically is just a minor annoyance. Maybe that will be fixed at some point in the future.
I paired it tonight. It originally showed up as "device", which doesn't have any commands. I switched it to Generic ZWave Valve, and it works. I cycled it open and close a few times.
Since it is Zwave Plus, though, I wonder if there should be a "smart" generic zwave plus valve type to support the 'plus' features...
Nop, that only applies for non smart switches and dimmers, valves is not needed.
