Do you have any links to where I can get them or names of manufacturers or retail sales locations? I went to Home Depot and Lowes but they seem to mostly carry Rain Bird or Orbit wired controllers and valves. Bluetooth works since the distance from panel to valves is like 20ft

Home Depot shows them online, but I have never seen bluetooth ones. Here's just one of many

Oh sweet, cool. Are there specific wireless valves that pair with this controller?

Oh, you are wanting the valves to be wireless and not just the controller?

The have them, but I only install them in commercial applications because of cost. Here's the brand I use, You'll also need the programmer

The Home Depot/Orbit system uses smart phone and apps. Sprinkler Warehouse/Hunter system uses batteries and special mounting setups. Before you decide, take a look at this link and see if there is something else that meets your needs. I saw at least one system that was Bluetooth capable.
