I tried this. If you go into your basement and try to rotate your shutoff valves, and it feel even slightly hard, this will have trouble closing it. I returned mine.
Disagree....'slightly hard ' is not a problem, rusted or old valve with build up, which you can feel it works hard - yes, it does. As long as you can do it with your finger, not using a hammer - you are good Smilie BTW, that means you may need to replace your valve, since you won't turn it even with your hand in a short future. I had a success and made it operational in easier way with WD40 . Another thing is a proper installation, once you don't follow it exactly, the torque may be offset and the actuator won't work in a proper way.. And finally, there are solid alternatives on the market - paying $300 for actuator and $150 for the plumbing job you'll get a better solution. However, this means replacing....the valve Smilie So, maybe a even new valve and DOME controller would be a better deal ?
Good deal. Paid $60 when this was on sale two years ago. Still going strong. Outside of flood prevention, it's really helpful working on plumbing on the second floor. The ability to turn the water on and off as you sweat and test pipes is a huge benefit.

Thank you, I always wondered how they would manage to have sufficient power to do this

Great point! Can you quantify "slightly hard"?

Door lock / Dead bolt level of effort or garden hose value 1/4 turn valve level of effort / torque too much for this unit?

Do you have more than one door you're trying to actuate? $30 seems excessive for what a $5 wifi relay can accomplish.

I have 2 doors and also needed to get 2 tilt sensors, It's more expensive but can also get feedback of the door status

I think a professional in-line install by a plumber is better peace of mind

Yeah, it's hard to quantify. My valve is a quarter turn with a handle the size of my hand. If I try to turn mine with just my fingers, I can't do it. I have to wrap my fingers around it and put the handle in my palm in order to turn it.

I didn't have the impression that my valves were too old or rusted? I've used valves on new installations before and I don't have the impression that mine is that much more difficult to turn than a new valve.

Edit: Wanted to add, this Dome worked OK for 90% of the turn, but it couldn't close the final little bit. It would keep clicking and not make it.

Then why not just go with 2 sonoff wifi inching relays? I have one to automate my garage door via IFTTT. Works great.

Also, tilt sensors might not be the most robust approach. I used a standard door sensor (i.e. reed switch) mounted to a hinge as demonstrated here:
