Benefits of a Wi-Fi Sprinkler Controller for Your Landscape

SMART Watering in the palm of your hand

Sprinkler ControllerDid you ever wish you could manage your lawn sprinkler system from your office, while you are on the road or even while you are away on vacation? That is now possible through a SMART Wifi sprinkler controller. A Wi-Fi controller is an easy-to-use sprinkler timer that replaces your existing timer. It connects your smartphone, tablet or other portable electronic device to your sprinkler system via the cloud. This allows you to control your sprinklers when you are away from your home or business.

What is a Wi-Fi  Sprinkler Controller?

A Wi-Fi sprinkler system controller gives you access to your irrigation system from any location. Hunter Hydrawise™ integrates with smart-home technology allowing you to set up timers and controllers as well as receive weather data on your smartphone or tablet.

In addition, Wi-Fi controllers labeled with a WaterSense logo meet the Environmental Protection Wireless Sprinkler ControllerAgency’s criteria for a water smart sprinkler system. In other words, you’ll use less water with a new Wi-Fi controller. Therefore, you may also be exempt from certain water restrictions if you live in: Ridgewood, Glen Rock, Wyckoff, Ramsey, Allendale, Mahwah and other Bergen County NJ towns.

Benefits of a Sprinkler Controller

  • Your sprinkler controller will monitor your water flow. If a pipe is broken, it notifies you as well as your irrigation contractor so the problem can be fixed right away—minimizing the amount of water lost.
  • You get up-to-the-minute weather forecasting. With Hunter Hydrawise™ Predictive Watering™, it allows the controller to adjust schedules based on the weather. Giving you the most accurate weather reporting, so you know how much water to schedule.
  • Your controller can be upgraded at any time. This allows you to add more zones or change a sprinkler zone to a drip irrigation zone thus saving even more water.
  • You can also add additional parts to your sprinkler system to make it work more efficiently. Drip tubing for planting beds or flower pots on your deck or patio.  Your controller gives you flexibility.
