Motorised valves are made for central heating systems, but there's no
reason why you shouldn't use one for a shower, although the speed of
reaction may be a bit slow.
They do normally have mains voltage motors, but that should be OK,
because they are designed to be used in water systems feeding bathrooms.
Just make sure that the mains never gets any where accessible to the
bathroom user. The controls must use low voltage (12 V).
