Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Reb36 Saved many dollars over professional installation
This controller was very easy to install, took me only about 15 to 20 minutes to remove the old one and install the new one. I saved over $200 versus the price quoted by the irrigation service company.

Overall it is an irrigation system. So for that purpose it works. The issue we are having with it is its complexity. Using the manual that comes with it, we set up the usual time, date, watering days, etc... For some strange reason the sprinklers will go off on random unscheduled days/times. We check and it is not an error on our behalf as far as scheduling goes. We have a rain censor as well, and it will still water even when it is raining, or has just rained. We then thought maybe the system was faulty so we purchased a new one (The one I am reviewing here) The same exact thing is happening with this unit, we also purchased a new rain sensor just in case. This was all professionally installed and set up. This item has a few kinks. Mechanically for the basic function it does instruct the irrigation to water by zone. The timing is a bit off (possessed). For the price I would have just gone with a simpler and more basic unit. We still might just have this one removed and go simple.

On my fourth one, replace every 2-3 years like clockwork. Once dead display nothing worked, second time same thing, third time it triggers sprinklers 3x daily when set for once a day at 5am (checked current time and programmed time) and the thing was running at 8:30am. All various hunter industies models (consumer version) i personally have had this experience with.

This controller was purchased to replace the one our landscaper left open to the rain - the control panel does not like to be wet! We now make sure the door is closed and locked! The controller works as intended with no problems, thus far.
