SkyDrop irrigation controller

We just bought a solar system for our rooftop, The sales guy gave us this as a promo (he was giving Nest Thermostats, but we already have one). anyone use this irrigation controller yet? good stories? bad stories? installation advice?

I currently have 8 zones, all paced and controlled throughout the property by means of the Hunter Nodes (4 total) so will need to run new wiring to the garage, but thats cool, except under one sidewalk area...

Re: SkyDrop irrigation controller

I haven't heard of that one but there are a lot of different cloud based systems out there these days and many of them use local weather to control the watering cycles. I've been using an Irrigation Caddy system for the last 2 years which is very similar. Certainly much easier in many ways and helps reduce water usage.
