Water valve and I/O LInc 2450

A few years back I installed a valve from Smarthome 70275 (seems to have been discontinued) to connect with an IO Linc 2450 to have a water shut off. I finally connected it, but Indigo reads open when the vale is closed and closed when it is open. How do I reverse this?

You don't. Indigo does not have a native "valve" type. You're actually seeing "off" for "open" and "on" for "closed", right? My Z-wave water valve has the same issue.

Actually, I take that back. You can't change it in Indigo, but you could wire in a relay to reverse the signals between the I/O Linc and the valve itself.

Or you could use the Masquerade plugin to create a pseudo-device which has the opposite values.

I vote for Masquerade!!! I run into scenarios like this all the time.
