Question

Wifi-enabled irrigation system


I have an existing sprinkler system which was installed in the late 1990s. It works, but the Rainbird controller on it has seen better days. I want to replace it with a new controller.

Requirements:
- Must handle at least 8 zones, preferably 12
- Must be network-enabled (either wifi or wired is OK, but wired seems uncommon)
- Must be reliable

That third criterion is hard to evaluate, so I'd love to hear about personal experiences, good or bad. Recommendations are much appreciated!

Irrigation Caddy!!

I had a basic rain bird and replaced it with An Irrigation Caddy 3 years ago. Very simple to install and operate yet have all kinds of flexibility. It can adjust watering schedules based on rainfall or temperature. It inputs for 8 zones, rain detector and flow meter standard and you can add on additional 8 zone modules if you need them.

In addition they are presently on sale for $149 which is wonderful.
